Bored as hell in my job!
You are the highest paid person in the company yet you have a boss? Are you a college football coach?
A solid 6-7 I would say. I work for a large, stable company but am stuck in a sitting at a cube day in and day out, doing the same shit.
I do enjoy getting a paycheck though, so I guess I should shut my mouth.
Deprive yourself of sleep, then start doing cocaine to stay awake and productive. Then you will feel like I do everyday. This will quickly move you into the 9.5 range.
Typically somewhere between 5-9. Its a paycheck and nothing more.
Calmer than you are
1. I work for a non-profit, helping veterans with their VA benefits. I won't get rich doing this, but it's a good feeling to know I'm actually helping people.
Being paid full salary to go back to school full time. Only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays...
What industry/grad program?
Engineering, I'm at Purdue for my MSME degree.
There are two engineers that own the company. and then
Me: Mechanical/Plumbing Designer
And me and the Plumbing guy share Fire Protection
When things go good, the bosses make more than me. WHen times are slow, I get a paycheck and they do not always get one. The risk of ownership.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Overall I'd say a 5. During months November - February its about a 9. Like the people I work with thankfully.
A man's gotta eat!
288...I'm so far beyond frustrated with the morans I work with. I end up doing all their work and I don't know if it's because they're too stupid or really really smart. I'm up for a promotion in 2 weeks though and there should be no way that I don't get it. Then I should be back down to about a 2. Love what I do, hate the people I do it with.
Congratulation. You won.
I would say a 2. I love my job, I wish I could travel a bit more and was in a better city but I believe these things are on the horizon anyways.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
Sounds like you living above your means man.
Check the Allen Iverson thread.
The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
I would freaking kill to work for a non-profit. I even have a few things in mind.
My dream job would be to organize 10 Pigs -v- Freaks games a year on different college campuses. All profits to StJude or PKDcure
7)I dont know...but I know I could find 10
I had UT ready to roll until Dooley got canned. Not sure how Jones would take to it. But TnTech would be on board if I needed it.
If "above my means" actually means: "Sounds like you are handling that 50% paycut pretty well" then yeah, you are right.
I am 100% on the bandwagon with "just glad to be working". But Im not complacent enough to sit here and become a piece of crap human being just because I work in a crappy job. My skills are not being used here, and they never will be. But because Im not currently using those skills, it is tough to get a job ahead of others who are currently using them. SlipperySlope.
I am making half of what I was making when I accumulated the debt that I have, yet I still make enough to pay for all of it. The biggest problem is balancing medical bills when insurance doesnt cover shit. And excessive home maintenance on a 5 year old home. Oh, and for the record, the debt I have is: My house. That is it.
I have 3 modest vehicles, one with 150k miles, one with 200k, one with 270k. All are paid off.
Right to Work. for less.
Add Army, Navy, and Air Force to that list and have their games go towards the Wounded Warrior Foundation and you would be gold.
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
I have no advancement, my manager and director have accused me of insubordination because I told them having a list of passwords was a security risk and a violation of IT policy, and there isn't anywhere open to transfer.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
That would be freaking awesome.
My plan has always been to have half go to MY charity (St Jude or whatever) and half to a local charity. So Wounded Warrior Foundation would be awesome. But for them, Id give 100% if I could.
But it would be awesome for Sparrow Foundation, etc, and other local charities. I just need to get St Jude, or PKD, or whoever to hire me to get this done.
This is what I was going to say, pretty much word-for-word.
Just do it yourself as a non-profit(or create your own church)...You can pay yourself a decent salary, travel for free, and make tons of money for the charities all at the same time.
Insurance companies are complete parasites guys. My advice? Get out while you can because from what I've been able to tell from friends and family that work for them, they'll just chew you up and spit you out.
