    Default I almost quit my job three times this week.

    I have the most thankless fucked up ass clown of a job that ever was. I am in management and on salary. (Add a "v" to salary and you get slavery almost.) I have lost three key employees and managers this week due to random bullshit and corporate changing shit way too much. More work and crappy pay = people don't want to go to work anymore. I have been extremely anxious about work, my declining property value, my wife's been getting sick, and just want to get the fuck out of town and get to COACHELLA! I seriously pondered just quitting my job, quitting my mortgage, quitting the fucking stress altogether.

    I have something like five days left of work before I am on vacation, and I don't think my boss even wants me to go on vacation now because of all the bullshit in the workplace. But FUCK THAT! This will be the longest five days of work in my life.

    Being able to log on here, get some good chuckles, talk about the great passion of my life, music, and make random smart ass comments really make my days more enjoyable.

    So, thanks to all you fine people on here for keeping me somewhat sane. Oh, and the anti-anxiety medication works well, also.

    When you see a big white guy with a funny hat laying in the grass eating a Churro crying tears of joy, that'll be me. Come say hi and please don't step on me.

    "Salary" is a trick conceived of by large corporations to keep the working class poor. Good luck dude, see you in the desert.

    Seeing as I've used the phrases, "I'd like to tell them to fuck off," "He can kiss my ass," and " I will be taking Coachella weekend off whether they like it or not," many times in the past few weeks, may I ask to please join in on your pity party?

    I'll be crying tears of joy right along side ya if you need some hugs man!! I've been at my job since 3/10 and have YET to recieve a fucking paycheck! I'm trying to remedy it immediately. But I'm also a single mom of two great boys who's dad dodges the radar of having a job, renting etc so he doesnt have to pay child support. Every penny I make the rest of the month is going to this vacay, my first in 3 years. Hugs on the grass indeed. Please avoid stepping on me as well!!

    Do we work for the same company, or are all salary jobs just crap? I've been going through something similar and have just decided I don't care wtf happens there while I'm on vacation. I'm tired of being made feel like the world might end if I have more than a day off or don't have my mobile with me. :P

    I am incredibly stressed as well, more because of school though, I am at work and was like you know what will make me feel better...Coachella, so I come on and this is what I see, and I do feel better knowing that others are in the same boat and that Coachella is a light at the end of the tunnle for alot of us (especially me, last semester of school).

    Oh yeah and you can thank my profession for the Xanax or whatever benzo your on....I'm in pharmacy school.

    Exactly! A light. That is what coachella is to me. I'm so pumped for that moment i walk into the festival grounds at noon on Friday for the third year in a row. It's so perfect. I can't wait to buy every coachella '08 shirt available. It's hard to focus on much else but coachella. We are obsessed, and it is one obsession that gives back.

    FUCK! I used to like my phone. I don't even want to bring it with me. I told all employees that I will accept calls from only one person and that's if it's not too loud. Or if I feel like it.

    Shit, I hope the place burns to the ground while I am gone. I still have to get paid, right?

    Dude, at least you have something to put the blame on for being stressed out. I'm stressed about stressing for NO reason which is making me think I'm crazy.

    Coachella better be good enough this year to make all us worn out people feel better!

    Yeah, next time my wife's heart starts beating heavily out of rhythm, I'll sack it up. As a matter of fact, I'll just tell her to sack it up, also. Then I'll smack her in the back of the head.

    I'm sorry. Sounds like you need your job more than ever.

    What you can make your mind perceive and believe, you will achieve.

    You can do it.



    Edit: I really am sorry to hear about your wife. That you cant help. The job thing, change your attitude and you may be amazed what could come of it...
