E/N has spread to the rest of something awful - support for the mentally ill and incompetent. Over in Ask/Tell there's a 'support' thread for hoarders now.
anyway, here's some classic goon
The Something Awful Forums > Main > General Bullshit > E/N Bullshit > Played With My Dog For An Hour Instead of Going to Work, Now Posting This
Every morning when I wake up, the first emotion I feel is FUCK I HAVE TO GO TO WORK. Every alternative action available to me becomes infinitely funner in the morning which is how today I ended up playing with my dog for an entire hour.
I'm putting almost no effort into it anymore because to try is to be depressed. On the other hand, NOT doing my job makes me happy because whatever it is I do instead, even if it is literally nothing, gives me some happiness in the form of 'at least I'm not working'. So you could say my performance is bad and getting worse as a result.
I just want to wake up and not be depressed. If it wasn't for 'the future' I'd rather go back to retail and live with 3 roommates again.
a bloo bloo bloo, I don't like my job and I'm just going to skip work.
I've applied to a few other places but I believe the problem is within myself and I think I'd get bored elsewhere as well. No one is that happy at my workplace but I think I'm the only one setting the alarm earlier and earlier because it's taking longer to man up and go to work. I've experienced this at every job I've had except for when I was working retail so there's a reoccurring pattern.
I see people trying pretty hard at work but they're doing such boring stuff that I can't comprehend why. It must be ambition that drives them because no one can enjoy making spreadsheets with meaningless numbers that will literally be looked at once and tossed right? But there's enough people doing it that it makes me feel like there's something wrong with me.
I really don't have a huge problem compared to others but I'm almost 28 and the prospect of another 40 years of this is just crippling. And because everything might just be a case of grass is greener, I don't trust myself to just quit and do something else.
I'd like it if people who felt similarly depressed about their jobs could talk about how they fixed it.
And YES I thought about just being a dog walker. I pay my dog walker $700 a month. All she does is pick up 6 dogs and play with them in the park every day. I just don't know if I have the balls to do that because its so drastic.
lol. everyone is more ambitious than me, typical goonisms. no you fucking retard they probably don't care for it either but just do it anyway because it obviously pays well enough to afford luxuries like paying a fucking dog walker nearly 10k a year to take care of your dog.
of course rather than go to night school or look for other jobs, this fucking goon just decides hey maybe i should up and quit and play with dogs for a living that will be amazing right???
