I am an ungrateful whiner
I have, I suspect, one of the easiest jobs on the face of the planet.
I sit in a chair all day, typing away on a computer. I do not have stressful deadlines. I often do not even have so much to do that I need to “work” the entire 9 hours I am sitting in my chair. I spend time on blogs, the news, facebook, etc.
In addition to all this, I am ridiculously well paid for what I do, and my bosses adore me and think I am hugely productive and an all around excellent employee.
My company has fantastic benefits. How many places still even HAVE an actual pension plan?
So what do I do with all of the above?
I’ll tell you what… I wish like all hell that I didn’t have to work. I wish I was wealthy and could spend my days indulging in hobbies and sporting activities, and other fun things. I wish I did not have to get up in the morning. I spend each day wondering if it’s 5pm and / or Friday yet. Sometimes I wish I just had a simple job working at a coffee shop or want to move to montana and live off the land with a herd of goats.
I ought to be ashamed of this (and I am, just a teeny bit). But still… Is it so much to ask that I just be handed everything I want without having to actually do anything to get it? Where’s my giant prize check for a million dollars?
Sigh – I suppose it is.
