Does your job suck? What do you do?

My job really sucks right now. I'm a local tractor trailer driver for Fedex. I've been on light duty doing paper work in the office since 09/20/11, when I fell out the back door of a broken trailer thus tearing up my shoulder. I hate being in an office. My boss is soooo weird and hard to work for. I am so thankful I'll be back in a truck at full duty this week. What do you guys do? Btw...super thankful I can play on my phone!!!

I have a feeling that all who chime in today, will be at work which means the job can't suck entirely. Lol

Mine used to be erratic too. Hang in there. I took a transfer to drive 30 miles farther to get a nine to 6ish gig.

Hang in there driver. Injections worked wonders on my shoulder. Luckily no surgery was needed. G-luck.

I'm the guy you see on the news from time to time. My job is to go out and buy peoples property that isnt for sale to run a highway through the property, or put a huge underground gas line in, or to run high power transmission lines across your backyard.

There is no making friends on my job......some quickly realize that you can't/shouldn't fight what I have to do and that I'm the guy who writes the fat checks.

Sucks to be the bad guy but I'm good at what i do and I treat people well and pay them even better.

My second job is as a DJ and concert promoter and booking agent. This is the job I generally tell people I do as most can relate to it more and its certainly more fun to talk about. I book major bands that were famous in the 70's & 80's....and even some 90's. Here are some of the bands I work with ..... Styx, Mothers Finest, Dryvin' N' Crying, Zebra, Rik Emmett (Triumph), Lynch Mob, and many more.

Coal miner. I love it, it's very exciting.

Plus I make more than most people with college degrees.

Im a cook and it makes me want to die. Rude customers, uncooperative coworkers, clueless management, and bad pay. At least Im almost done with college so I can get out of this crap for good.

Work parting on WWII aircraft under supervision of my dad who is employed full time on them.
He works full time for one guy and part time for the other, same for me.
Full time job pay sucks but the part time one isn't bad.
12 a hour for cleaning and somewhere around 16'ish for maintenance stuff.
Of course my dad can charge around 50 for the same stuff I do for 16 so I guess compared to him the pay sucks.
Through buying stuff on Craigslist I more or less own the equivalent of half a machine shop (boring bar, hones, valve seat and valve grinder, and so on) so eventually I'm gonna fix up the shed and turn it into a little shop and start rebuilding stuff.

I love my job. Most of the time lol. I work in a marina. Pics of pushing a dock down the lake.
You can see Charles stuck on the dock, the company dog. View from the pontoon boat

Yep, sucks most of the time. I'm an IT Manager. I'm not really a people person. Don't really like answering questions and managing people. I'm totally in the wrong field although I am grateful I have a job.
