i work at an art gallery in a shitty little town. every wednesday and saturday (sometimes one or two more days) i sit here for 3-4 hours (sometimes up to 7) and waste time. if there is something for me to be doing, it will either be folding, stamping, sticking, stuffing 500+ envelopes and flyers/letters etc. when there is nothing for me to be doing, i sit and mark on a tally sheet how many people come in at certain times (that averages about, what, less than 10 people a day?). so the rest of the time i'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs, drawing if i can, or on the net until i get sick of it. well guess what? i'm fucking sick of it!!
i'm sick of drawing at this point, sick of screwing with whatever else on the computer, i'm sick of sitting in this goddamn office counting people that come in, i'm sick of dealing with snobby, cenile, dumbfuck people that ask me the stupidest questions, nitpick about the stupidest fucking things and me smiling and nodding and doing what i can, as friendly as i can to help them out. sick of getting dirty looks when people don't get what they want when they want for reasons that are beyond my abilities, but of course it's my fault anyways right? FUCK!! i wish i could just trash this entire place right bloody here and now. scare the shit out of anyone around, and if they scoff about it or say whatever the fuck people say about me for whatever fucking reason, i swear i'm gonna put their fucking head through those goddamn glass doors with all those bloody fingerprints and smudges that only my boss can see, and insists on them being bloody spotless when she's around! dear. god.
no, whether it sounds like it or not, this is NOT a sweet ass job! i know every one, if not a big fuckin handful of you will think that! because i thought that when i first started. you get a job like this.. give it time. you'll lose your goddamn mind. time moves slower than a snail in here too.
not too much longer i'll be out of here to get a full time job where i can actually work and maybe feel accomplished at the end of the day.

Hey, I want your job. It must be nice to sit there and do nothing and get paid for doing it. How much do you get paid for doing nothing anyway?

Sounds like most jobs... S U C K.

Unless you make your job, it will suck to work for someone else.

If it makes you feel better, I'm about to start a job where I clean up after old people in a geriatric center. Really, there's nothing more fulfilling than mopping up old-man vomit.

I feel for ya, though. Good luck finding a new job.

I have to agree with you on this one..
Sit around jobs suck.
I did that one summer, and after awhile, getting paid to sit around really sucks.
I would even rather work on an assembly line and actually get a sense of accomplishment out of the day than sit around and do jack shit.

ya, i got that. i do know there's really not many options for jobs i will enjoy. most of the time you can only really obtain that through pure luck.. or with excellent connections. either way work blows the big one. but bottom line is, it's fuckin frustrating whatever you're doing and it can't stay cooped up inside all the time.. though i try.

find a good place to sleep on the job
lol, oh i've done that before.. though i didn't sleep as well as i'd like to because of the cold hard desk my face was planted on.

it was for the first couple months.. but it gets to you.. it really gets to you! i work 7 hours a week (3 hours on wednesday and 4 on saturday) $7.73/hr. it's shitty for trying to save up because that's just enough for essentials plus a little casual spending money. it blows. trust me.

Hmmm....I feel your pain man.

I was in one of those jobs before so I decided to teach myself web design on the side. Finally I got so fucking sick of it that I left and now I have another similar job but I can't install programs on my computer so I can't teach myself any new shit or be creative whatsoever.

And that's why I'm here at wtf.com

If this helps at all...have fun with the job, fuck with people's heads, play a sick game. It's all good. Think about it as a bullshit job that's not gonna get you anywhere and outsmart the fuckers with your whit. They are there for your amusement. No violence just some fun fun psycho bullshit.

Am I making any sense. I don't know how to explain this well.
