Total Sweetness...

82% | 3

I have been working in my current position for the past month and a half and I have to say that it is the best freaking job that I have ever had.

My days consist of playing numerous rounds of chess, writing on NAO, sending emails, chatting on msn, researching mindless self indulgence including the omnious affects of sucralose or the history behind the Thundercats, and of course... "working".

This is sick. My "work" is so mindless that it is hilarious. Out of a typical 8 hour work day, I usually only have enough "work" to take up approximately 20 minutes of my day. Which leaves an abundance of time to piss around and get paid for it. Freaking awesome...

And no, it isn't boring, it is so fun that it is ridiculous! I also work almost directly across from my partners desk, which makes this entire experience even more filled with fantastic sweetness.

I also work with two of the most side-splitting guys that I have ever known. We sit around and have 2 hour coffee "breaks" while we talk about everything from summer festivals to the creamers we use in our coffee.

Even though I don't make as much money as I would like to (but its not bad either), I honestly wouldn't mind working here for the rest of my life. This is the first time in my life that I have actually been able to get up at 6:00 in the morning to go to a place that I enjoy working at!

Hallelujah!

Oh my, do they have open positions at the place where you're employed?

That is so awesome! I'm terribly jealous, but also revelling in your joy. :-) What could possibly be better than working for only 20 minutes a day, while being able to hang out with the person you love, chat for hours with two funny guys, and talk about something as mundane, but actually very interesting as what kind of coffee creamers you like. That's cool.

And on top of it, the fact that your job is not boring, but interesting. I too wish I had that, and seeing that someone does, makes me hope there are more jobs like that out there. I'm with Jaz. I want on board. Eventually, when all of the medical bills are out of the way, I will have the opportunity to look for a job that awesome. I hold out your job as 'hope for the flowers'.

Yes! I used to enjoy that about my job, and then it got bad, and the money got worse, and I got sick...but now we're trying to have the kind of fun we used to... management is a pain about it, but that doesn't mean we can't plan to have mullet contests, James Bond nights, and chase each other around with SuperSoaker guns. I missed the James Bond night, but I was supposed to be 'Pussy Galore'. Heh. I figured I'd walk up to everyone and go: "Hi, My name is Pussy Galore," and laugh my ass off at the responses. I heard mullet night was a smash hit, until management put the Kibosh on it.

But, I'm waiting to hear about James Bond night. *rubs hands together*

Having fun at work shouldn't be a gleeful little sin. It's what every day should be. Here's to that. And once the bills are paid, and survival isn't a problem...it's worth it more to be happy than to be rich. You can take assloads of money and take a trip to Bali, and still not be happy. Or you can be happy. Or you can be happy doing whatever you're doing.

And thanks for this post. I needed it! :-))))))))))))))))))))))

My mind is made up...not like my bed, which is a mess.

I couldn't agree more! I don't see a point in doing something everday if you don't enjoy it. We only live once. What is the point of working for 30 years at the same job with the same bitches whos attitudes can't seem to rise past their days in highschool? I don't know... It just seems like such a sickening waste of what little time we have here.

Having experienced horrendous jobs in the past, (that I am thankful for now, otherwise I wouldn't of realized this) this job is definitely a breath of fresh air. I am glad that you know that there are these kinds of jobs out there!

I am still going to go back to school to try to make more money though ;) My goal is to be a great manager who will beable to have fun at my job while allowing my co-workers to have enjoyable, rewarding careers too :)

So what's this job called? I'm curious!

It is a government job ;)

Wow, what a touch youve had, i mean i know that employees regulation rights exist, but you boss seems to be abusing that privilidge man, ha, good luck to ya.

The best job you can get is one you actually enjoy turning up to, see ive never had that, as long as the money was enough to survive and a bit of disposable income, definatly worth it.

I always seem to get a not so enjoyable job and think, hmm, ill take this untill i sort things out and find a better one but no such luck. Sometimes it comes down to doing what you can do, not what you want to do.

I do have a pal who works for a collaborative putting on raves in london which is like a organisation, they give you five duvet days a year where if your a bit mashed, you just phone and say im having a duvet day today and theres no questions asked, youll still get your paid holidays. I always thougt he had a touch, but i think your one tips the scale a little bit.

Does your employer not realise that youve done sod all, simply sitting there on your chair all day, or that you might as well not be for the work that you do ;)

Hey... wait a minute, government job, two hour coffee "breaks" and doing nothing all day, are you that guy on the first floor who works for my local "jobcentre" uncanny that ive never actually got a job from that place.
