    It varies. I've had lots of different jobs. Some I enjoyed until the day I left. Others I hated after the first hour in the door.

    Though I can't remember too many that I LOVED. I can remember some I didn't mind, some that were enjoyable from time to time. But the one thing about work is it's almost always work.

    As far as the 2 jobs I have now, one is a kitchen manager - don't like it, lot's of stress, high heat, high intensity. But it pays well and is occasionally fun.

    My other job is an overnight security officer (working right now). And though this is much more relaxing, it's almost never fun, and very very boring.

    I would have to say that I never loved either of them.

    Fabulous question Kevin! But I gotta tell ya, Since my mentor asked me to begin to write the book of positive aspects about my current job, which I had much difficulty with from the beginning, I have found ways to appreciate the not so good and it has really helped make a complete 180!
    So as much as I would like to answer your question directly, I have to opt for taking a different viewpoint! There is just so much more of upside than remembering the way it used to be!

    I remember it well. It was the same day I discovered "debt". Before I accumulated any debt my job was great and I loved going to work every day. After "plastic" entered my life  the job became so intertwined with the debt load I was carrying that it also became a burden. Too bad though.....I really miss those days!

    I have had a love/hate relationship with my job since I started as a social worker 14 years ago.  Some days it's so hard to make it through the day, but other days miracles happen.  No job is perfect all the time.

    @Born2Care: I totally agree. It is always more productive to look at the positive aspects. It is sometimes just that one person that can ruin your relationship with your job/career.

    Yes, I do. Everyone became irritating. Work became a horrid chore instead of a joy.
