Maynard G. Krebs DUmmies Hate ...WORK!
I'm wondering if it is really worth it to go back to work...
I've been out of work for two years, and while it has been stressful at times, it has also been a time of blissful relaxation.
Now I've gone back to a full-time job and I'm absolutely miserable.
This job - dealing with subject matter that I absolutely hate - pays only $11.58 per hour. At my last full - time job, I made over double that.
[Hey, you get free rent and pizza from mommy so you have plenty left over to buy antique lava lamps at yard sales.]
The worst part of it is that have no time for anything else - now that I work full time, I find I'm working ALL the time - keeping my house clean, washing clothes, and cooking meals.
[You had a personal servant before?]
f course, I'm single - I decided long ago that marriage and having children in this economy would be way too stressful / expensive.
[It's the Obama economy.]
Is it really worth it to work full time?
Seems like it takes all the joy out of life.
[Enjoy your Recovery Summer.]
How did we get in this state of mind where people feel obligated to find a job and work?
[It's called free enterprise or would you prefer the Bolshevik alternative? And now to the other lazy DUmmies...]
I will not work.
Not till the issue I have is corrected, I am due from years ago.
[Still waiting for that brain implant?]
I did check out work scene a few years ago, to see if things had changed, they hadn't
[Sorry. Work still involves...WORK!]
So somebody is going to correct my issues.
[Because you are just too lazy to correct your own unemployment issues.]
And some think my post here could be work, but they cover such a wide set of views, they don't point to any single thought, but that thoughts exist.
So when commenting on work, it would be insane when already due, to go and work for something. That makes no sense.
[As little sense as your thoughts, DUmmie RandomThoughts.]
And I don't think correlation is causation, and know I will be given money for beer and travel and much enjoyment to compensate for wrong smear done to me years ago.
[We done him wrong.]
So I also don't worry about correlations, since I know they can be used to try and train and from that are not real.
[You also obviously don't worry about logical thought patterns.]
The debt due to me is real, and will be paid.
[Yes, we all owe you, YOU DUmmie RandomThoughts.]
Also society will get more just, and more compassionate. But things have always been that way.
[May we just call you DUmmie NoThoughts?]
I'm curious if the expiration of your unemployment compelled you to work. And what you would have chosen to do should unemployment be available in perpetuity.
[Sit on his butt in perpetuity. That is what happens in the Scandinavian countries.]
You're cleaning, washing and cooking for one?
[Heavy WORKload there.]
Just a few years ago, it seemed like everyone had at least a little spare time to exercise, to go on vacations, to do gardening, etc. Not to mention having the spare MONEY to do all those things.
[Just a few years ago during the EVIL Bush Regime.]
For just about everyone, it's get up, go to work, do essential chores, go to bed. Day after day...just to keep the lights on and some basic food on the table.
[People PAY for food? At this very moment I have a freezer filled with HUNDREDS of FREE coupon bought chicken/buffalo wings.
Maybe it's time to demand better wages
[Go on strike and achieve your goal. No WORK!]
Then find someone who will pay your bills.

The whole idea of a career, of having to find a job (nowadays, any job), and keep it whether you like it or not, just in order to survive – the way we do now – is a relatively new development in human history. It was not such a struggle and didn’t often force us to do things that were against our nature just to survive.
[Yeah, those feudal serfs from way back when sure had it made.]
