Love your work, or work your love?

Call me Gus if you like. If you can do both it's a great life.

What doya think?

Of course, some days, and parts of days are better than others.

I like what I do, I've been able to do things most people never get a chance to. I'll never get rich but I get to work outdoors in conservation in some of the most beautiful country on the planet

Had a high stress job in an eng dev lab.
Worked w great people too.
Was pretty sweet

We did awesome stuff, too awesome.
Honked off some people.
Shut us down.

Was bad, real bad, working elsewhere in same company.
Got fugged over big time.

Work for diff company, diff facility.
Am a nobody and just do my 8 and GTFO.
Surrounded by democrats. Its a chithole.

But it pays the bills and the insurance is decent, and my kid has a fair amount of medical crap.

So i go in and do my duty.

Job satisfaction is ZERO.

I can say I like it. Its a no Brainer job, get paid decently. Boss totally leaves me alone. Pretty good insurance plus with our esop program since we are employee owned.

Management isn't worth a crap but otherwise its a pretty decent gig.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

No I do not. In the beginning I worked for a good size company but it was the “family” atmosphere. Throughly enjoyed it. But we have been bought out twice by larger global companies who spread liberalism to the 4 corners of the plant. Hate working there now. I totally expect them to leave the state in 2021-22.

Waiting For Direct Deposit is much better than that other thing I did for forty years (and a week).

Retired, so yes I love it.
Before retiring, I worked for a very large corporation, for 39 years. Worked my way up from the bottom to run a large business inside that corporation. Lots of stress at times. Relocated around the USA eight times. Traveled to most corners of the world. I was lucky to find such a corporation. Retired at 61. Not every day was good, over all it was terrific.

Love both my jobs.
Allergist came out, and informed me that I was "literally allergic to more things, than not" - and showed me the results to prove it.
I asked "What should I do?"
His response "Change your life-style"
"Doc, can you see me sitting behind a desk?"
"Not really!"
"Let's put it this way - there'll be icycles hanging off the hinges to the gates of Hell, before that happens!"

I've always been a curmudgeon - now I'm an old curmudgeon.

I do, but after 28 years, it’s getting tiring. Be happy when I can afford to retire - which may never happen!

Well I think If I call or compare you to Gus you have the right to rip my head off.

You are 10 times the man Gus is or ever could be.
