    Yours must really suck... seeing as how you moved from posting in 'Things that are pissing you off' to a dedicated thread.

    Part of my job is assembling a monthly newsletter on available federal/state/private grants. Office policy says that I have to reach out to the grant orgs with a copy of the summary I write up (which is usually a near-regurgitation of the RFP or grant announcement) so that the org can "approve it."

    This holds up the process every fucking month and several contacts have said to me, "Uhh, our grant announcements are public info. Not sure why you need approval."

    Me neither. :fu:

    Only about 10% of my coworkers speak English, so if I fuckup, they can only shake their heads, but not tell me how to actually do the task.

    Over half my supervisors are on work release, so after they punch out they go back to jail and rape each other.

    I work 8 PM to 7 AM almost daily, kissed my social life goodbye. May need to invest in pool table.

    Come home covered in turkey guts and smell like hickory smoked rectum.

    Job is quite fast paced and physically draining, wears me down.

    Got caustic acid in my eye yesterday, felt like a big frickin hair in there I couldnt wipe out.

    Knowing I make 1/3rd as much as a negatosexual assembling a newsletter.

    Oh well just one more month or so and Im out! Overall Im glad I took the job, I think a shitty job is necessary life experience.

    A shitty job is one of the best ways to motivate yourself to get an education. I worked an absolutely terrible job unloading containers after high school, then decided after 3 months that anything would be better and got a job at a mental institution in the section that held the violent patients (job included changing diapers on grown men and other shenanigans), where I worked for 9 months. Just started my 6th year of uni and haven't failed a course so far.
