I love my job!
Posted by tim in Work Sucks on February 8, 2008

Okay, this is just a general notice to anyone who is considering or has urged me to seek other employment:

I work hard, and I work a lot. That doesn't mean I hate my job.

I'm not earning a 6-figure income. Money doesn't drive me.

I grumble from time to time about things that happen at work. Every job will be that way.

I'm just getting really tired of everyone suggesting that because I'm not driving a brand new car and because I have to live by a budget that I need to find a "better" job. I'm happy where I am, even though it's not the greatest pay in the world, and even though the position has its headaches.

Furthermore, just because several of my peers are moving on to other places of work, it doesn't mean I need to as well. They are finding that there is a position elsewhere that will better suit their needs; That doesn't mean it will suit my needs.

So please, stop urging me to leave my job because you think I'm unhappy.

Agreed. I'm in a very similar situation, and have gotten a few of the same reactions to people.

Well that only makes sense, since we're the same person and all.
