Absolutely hate my day job. Stuck in it by the chains of a salary. Cant find another making the same money with less hours. Used to be my job got me motivated and I strived to advance. Now I find myself just trying to make it to my next day off. It sucks being in a position like this. I should be thankful to be working but hate what I do. I have applied for atleast 50 jobs in the last 3 years and interviewed for 15. None of them had the money or schedule that made sense. I pray about it all the time. Being in restuarant management for 15 years has left me not qualified for other jobs and making too much to switch and start from the bottom in another. 70-80 hours a week and working EVERY major holiday doesn't make it any better either. But it does allow me to buy more cattle. :D

If it allows you to buy cattle it must be a pretty good job :cboy:

Pays good, they just work the crap out of you all week and they squeeze every drop they can. In my industry we call this kind of company a meat grinder. Had 1 dayw off yesterday. Ran cattle in the morning, slept half the afternoon, hauled hay last night and back on a 70 hour stretch today. If I could get out and not sink financially I would leave this minute.

Having had an almost exact situation almost ruin my life, I'd go back and take one of those jobs...and forget the money. You'll learn to live on less and need less. Beats the he// out of ending up in the funny farm. You will survive.
