    I know bad days happen, I just hate having to work at a job that REQUIRES you to be happy like that.

    Can't I like..stuff envelopes all day? I actually love doing that, cause I feel all accomplished when I have near to 300 in front of me, and I get em all done before 2:30PM when the last mail pickup happens. It's like an overwhelming sense of 'booyah' if you get me.

    I really enjoy jobs like that, too, although I'm not sure how I'd feel doing it everyday.

    I'm doing a kind of stuffing envelopes type job myself, except instead of stuffing envelopes I sit at my PC all day adding listings to a fashion directory website. Boring as hell but it brings in some money.

    I basically do it everyday heh.

    And we haven't had 'moving guides' for the past week which has me annoyed too. Our envelopes say 'your complimentary moving guide is enclosed' and then we don't send out letters with them included. The problem needs to be corrected cause it looks bad on our end.

    I wish I had an at home job where I could do something boring, but have a television on or music playing.

    You don't want an at home job, trust me. Because they're stricter on you to get your work done because if they catch you slacking off (i.e. not being on the phone for 2 hours) you're fired lol.

    I'd rather have to physically go to work so I can have a reason for being off for that long (meetings, customer service issue etc.)

    Not as good as you think man. You need to have a very strong sense of focus otherwise you get distracted too easily. I once took my lunch break, played my 360 and like 3 hours later realised I had work to do. :lol:

    Yeah, I guess my job isn't that bad, because I can always hang out in the back pretending to be doing something when I'm actually doing absolutely nothing.

    Yeah lol and that's why its good to physically report to a workplace because you have a supervisor putting you in line if you lose focus and don't do your job.

    At home..its sitting on your ass, eating chips and watching Jackass 2 on DVD instead of getting work done. Not good lol.

    I just think that I would actually have more focus if I was at home and could work at my own pace. I never feel motivated going to work. I'm like the guy from Office Space, haha... But I think everyone feels like that guy.

    I'm reminded of the case of homeschooling vs. public school. My friend is homeschooled, and he wakes up at about 8:30, walks downstairs, does his school, is done by about 12 or 1, and then has the rest of the day to do whatever. He doesn't have to finish at that time if he doesn't want to, he can wait even longer, but it's ultimately up to him. I wish I could do that. I think that I would actually get more done.

    My work at home is pretty much my own hours but you have to be sensible about it. If someone says they don't have to abide by set hours the fact is that they do.

    My job really isn't that bad. I'm more bummed about school being tomorrow. Seriously, my job is walking around a store making sure everything is nice in order. And it pays good... and it's easy to slack off.
