to like one's job? I've never had that experience except when I worked at the assisted living home in NM. I should not go to work counting down the hours....counting down the minutes until I get off. I should not live for my days off. But I do. It's not a horrible job, it's not a hard job and I like the people I work with....much more so than when I worked in retail in SC. So I don't know what the problem is. Well maybe I do. I should not be working in retail. It's all about consumerism and greed. I don't like shopping. I don't like the fact that big retail giants like the one I work for comes into a city and takes the business away from all the small Mom and Pop stores. It makes me angry when young people....very obviously able bodied people who are capable of working come in and buy $300 worth of junk food. Then they feed that crap to their kids. I see this every day. Well hello......my taxes pay for that crap! So does that give me the right to be mad about it?I realize there are people who need it....like a suddenly single mother with 3 kids or a disabled person who can't work but then you see more than half of the people who come to my register using food stamps something is not right. Then something else that bugs me are the people who come in and ride the power chairs because they are too freaking lazy to walk. Being extremely overweight is not a disablity. Maybe that bit of exercising of walking around the store would help. Save those chairs for the person who just had back surgery, the person who has a broken leg or the one who has heart problems.
Maybe I'm being too judgemental but sometimes the unfairness of life gets me down. If not for those few people who come into the store...the ones who tell me their inspiring story...or the really upbeat ones that just brighten my day, my job would be unbearable.
If another job opportunity came along that I thought I'd enjoy working at I'd take it in a minute. But is changing jobs with the economy like this a good idea? I'd like to go to school but there's not money for that especially now that we have this house. I have lots of plans of things I could do, but no motivation to do them. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck. Stuck in the mud. Surely my life long ambition is not working as a cashier. There has to be more than that in life.
Feel free to comment. Do you like your job? Are you doing what you are meant to be doing?
Blessing to y'all.
