    Yeah they're trying to get raises and promotions in my experience. They don't actually care about the stupid reports or whatever it is your coworkers do. I mean I'm sure they prob try to tell themselves they care. It's just like when everyone pretends to be swamped when I'm bored out of my mind doing the same job

    One truly loves to work. Even though he is the most senior, knowledgeable, hardest working guy on the team he acts like an unpaid intern fighting for a spot. It’s exhausting/infuriating.

    Meh it’s more
    He just got married so maybe he chills a bit. Perfect example actually today was his destination wedding. An office wide email was sent about some big wigs there and to make sure areas/offices are clean. He texted the one guy on our team in the office asking if his area was clean.

    Your wife be cool with you working on your wedding day? She had to tell him not to bring his laptop on the trip cause she says he works too much. There comes a point in work ethic/dedication that it becomes a negative to others. It’s detrimental to his relationships and mine/the teams cause I have to step up and work nights and weekends to try and keep pace with his unnecessary over working which takes me away from my family.

    My job has a 95% turnover rate and I’ve been at it for 5 years

    at this point it’s just sad to watch the 10 new people they hire each month come in really excited only to watch them get fired in a month or two and leave completely crushed

    I’m sorry you have to do that and yes my wife would be pissed if I was doing that on my wedding day. I’m someone though who frequently checks email on my vacation because it keeps me relaxed. I rarely take vacation more than 2-3 days at a time for that reason.

    Have you spoken with him about it or is it a tough situation since he’s senior? Can you speak with HR because that sucks it messes with your personal life.

    I watched my uncle work 2 jobs (teacher during the year and worked a blue collar summer job) to make a mediocre living for 40 years, retire, then die of colon cancer 6 months later. Makes a guy question the whole thing.

    Nah, he’d probably call me a pussy. Nice enough guy but that’d be the likely response.

    HR? Somehow our thousand + employee company has no HR.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not really one besides being completely irresponsible. Doesn’t help not giving a shit about your irrelevant job though unless it’s in something that really makes a difference.

    I assume it is some dream of redistribution of wealth so that everyone has the same amount of stuff. I was looking for a realistic answer because I've seen multiple people in this thread seem to think work is pointless.

    Not a ton ruins my day, most days. I’m pretty fucking lucky all things considered.

    although specifically yesterday I had to have an A/C company come out to repair our system at the house and that cost a bunch. That ruined my day.

    People who like work concern me.

    not people with a ton of ambition who start companies, or run organizations, but people who Stan the whole 8-5 grind.

    that’s weird to me.

    For instance I “like” my job. More so than most I would imagine.

    But I’d also rather be fishing or golfing or reading or gardening or even starting a new hobby like bird watching or some shit.

    I personally love working 10-12 hours a day to help people profit off of my work

    my work is especially bad. I have customers that I brought in myself and I make 25% of all net revenue from my customers

    so essentially I pay my company 75% of my profits for giving me the platform. Too expensive to start my own business in the industry and I signed a noncompete when I started that would kill any chance of me starting my own business anyways

    fuck sales jobs and fuck capitalism

    I guess I just interpret this the wrong way. Do I like work? No...I would rather be doing something fun.
    Do I like money? Yes.
    Do I like being able to provide for myself? Yes.
    Do I like having things? Yes.
    Am I appreciate for the thing (work) that makes all those possible? Yes.

    In less consequential terms: When Warzone does a big update, and I log on to play with the lads at 8 pm, but my playstation 4 is going to take 3 hours to download what takes their gaming PC's 20 minutes.

    I can’t post this without coming off like a super fucking privileged asshole but my A/C repair came between a New Orleans 4 day weekend and 10 days in New England. I had already budgeted this month. It ruined my day.
