I'm exhausted
#1
I couldnt' find the random thread
so here is my random post

I am working 6 days a week right now and it is too much. I'm too old for this shit! Luckily it is only for this month. And yes I am thankful to have a job and yes I love my job. It is the heat that is taking it out of me. 2 back to back 12 hour days outdoors is enough for me.

Yeah, the high heat bugs me too. You really have to do things slow like a rebel.

And whose fault is that?   You're willing to work 6 days a week.   You could get any job you wanted right now,   you just have to negotiate the price  Are there not any job listings where you live?

Places here don't pay enough. I could move back to the big city, but I choose to stay here. Originally I had more days off, but due to a scheduling mistake and another issue I am working more-its okay. Like I said, I really love my job. And also-it is the heat. Tomorrow I get to work inside the AC cooled office.
I just had to complain.

I will eventually probably need to find another "real" job if this one can't sustain me through the winter, but for now its the best job ever.

Also I am working a 2nd gig, but it is only a couple of hours a week. It was closed for the pandemic and recently re-opened so I am there until they can find more people. IT IS ALSO A FUN JOB. But I won't be able to maintain it for very long.

That's one of the cons to living in a rural area.   In or near cities,  there are tons of jobs,   and some of them pay well,  as long as you have experience.

Yep, I've made a choice to stay in this area for as long as I can manage it.

I can understand being exhausted. It's hard to get through but it depends on what company you do it with. Some places will take care of you in the future, some places will just say " fuck you"  your young and that is good but you should place your bets with some company then do your side work.
I've always said that the bread & butter of a stable company is nice but a person still needs to trust their side hobbies to really see their true potential,

Enjoy your job as long as you can afford to. There may come a time when money is more important to you. If and when it does, you'll know it and go after it. I did.


Quote:When I was young and working in the beginning, I was like a flitting fire fly.

I would take a job (In engineering) and work at it for a period of time, sometimes a year, sometimes only months. Each time I changed jobs, it was for a respectable much higher salary. I had a young wife and family and needed money.

I was impetuous, and couldn't wait for raises to be ascertained. When I felt I needed to make more money, if I didn't get a sizable raise, I changed jobs.

All and all, in the first 6 years, I had 12 different jobs! Only one of those jobs did I really enjoy leaving due to the engineering mgr, being a real shithead to me. He was on my case, from start of work day to end of work day!
I came to find out, his brother in-law got fired and needed a job, but the mgr just hired me. So he made life miserable for me, so I would leave on my own,
as he couldn't fire me since I went through an engineering placement service and he paid them a tidy sum for placing me there. He would get a refund only
if I left on my own within 2 months! So it wound up I left before 2 months.
He was happy, I was happy I got a betting paying job!

Job number 13, turned out to be a lucky number for me, as when I looked around at the other employees there, most were there 30 to 40 years. That's when I realized I could likely make a life long career myself at this company.
As it turned out, I made a career there, I eventually became Engineering Dept mgr,
(In charge of 177 employees) and worked there for 35 years until I retired, at a 6 figure salary. (PS: I enjoyed my job, "until I had to lay people off", when things slowed down)
The End!

My side gig job took care of us during the pandemic. It wouldn't feel right to leave them. I'm not doing anything else right now, so I guess I am just saving up. My main job may be seasonal anyway.

When I was 40 I was doing all kinds of stuff. Building decks, roofs, landscaping all on the weekends after working a full week. Some Summers I never got a day off but I was greedy and the money was good. Now I value my time so things have changed. I was making 1500.00 a week and at the time it was worth it. Some weeks I made more, all under the table after my 40 hr job. That paid my insurance and rent and all my normal bills.

Same. I think most people have to have life experience before they "get it".

I finally got caught up on some sleep today. Had today off, except for a couple of hours at the theater and I have tomorrow off.
Yay!
