I completed this interview via G-chat today. G-chat brings joy to my work day. Without it. I die. I happen to know that this person hates her job- so it makes sense that she would be the very first interview.
“I’m writing a blog about hating work. Seems like my calling. I have a few questions for you.”
Hater: What is your job title?
Nicole: Program Assistant
Hater: Why do you hate working?
Nicole: Because people are egotistical and unappreciative
Hater: Not why do you hate this job, but why do you hate working in general?
Nicole: That’s it! Plus it takes away from time that you can spend doing things you actually enjoy – family, friends, traveling. It’s very difficult maintaining a work-life balance. It’s not likely for many people to do what they love and actually get paid what they expect.
Hater: Okay- why do you hate your current job?
Nicole: Same reasons, really. People take things too seriously – only look out for themselves.
Hater: If you could slap someone at work- who would it be?
Nicole: I would slap my previous coworker! She’s a conniving, condescending little twit!
Hater: Hmm okay. Haha! How do feel about people who love going to work?
Nicole: They must really enjoy what they do, or they have no lives.
Hater: I agree. Are you jealous of people who enjoy what they do? Because I sure am
Nicole: Definitely. You wonder how the heck they got to that point. And there’s resentment to the point that you know you must have a purpose, but it’s unnerving to not know what it is – or, where you belong exactly.
Hater: Hell yea
Nicole: Hmm sad story.
Hater: Do you actually give a crap about the job you do?
