10 Things You Don’t Like About Your Job

August 21st, 2007 by Yano

One of my favorite hobbies is complaining about work! This list is EASY!

And remember, even being a stay at home parent is a job!

1) At least 60 emails a day to sort through
2) I need to account for every hour I’m working, and I have quotas on how much work should be billed to a client
3) I don’t see my coworkers every day, so it can be lonely working at home
4) Traveling for business, though it does have its perks, usually sucks
5) Dealing with red tape to get things done
6) Creating documentation. I write writing documents for clients to read. I’m not a great technical writer. I could write a wonderful book of fiction, but suck at writing anything business related.
7) Working with people I don’t get along with
8) Being expected to check my email and work in my off hours and on weekends
9) It takes FOREVER for me to enter my expenses, there’s a lot of things to document for each receipt
10) Being someone who works away from the main offices, I don’t get cake when they celebrate birthdays or bagels when we have company meetings

…and just so I don’t end up quitting after writing all my issues about work, let’s turn it around next week:
Next week: 10 Things I Like About My Job

    Just so I didn’t seem like a bitter employee, I already did next week’s. Bonus from me today.

    There’s only one thing I don’t like about my job, but I *hate* it with a passion. I’ve never posted the same thing for all 10 before, but I think this one warrants it.

    Oh…wow, just read what we have to do NEXT week…heck, that’ll be more difficult to do a positive on my ‘job’, I’m so negative.

    Mine’s posted. But it’s all in hilarity, nothing serious about being a housewife. ;o)

  5. patois Says:

    Ah, yes, I remember a lot of those things when I was working at the San Francisco Chronicle. Now I complain about home things. And I’m up.
