Anybody Else Have A Job That Never Ends...

Sometime I wish I could go home and not have work to do...

Right now I have 3 - 4 hours of work to do and all I want to do is play on BikeForums...


OK...

Off to work...

I just wish when I was off I didn't constantly get phone calls and called back into work. And I wish I could play on BF at work.

No need to qualify yourself, our jobs can both suck, nobody has to win.

Yes I know the feeling, its very similar to the feeling I get when I look at the feet in your picture...which also resembles a feeling I get when I have had a severe allergic reaction

When I get home there is always a never-ending honey-do list. Bless her heart, she watches HGTV and keeps coming up with things to change about the house.

My job begins at 7am and ends at 5pm, five days a week. There's no way I'm taking this job home.

Abatement work is cascading towards its end when all the asbestos is gone.

Of all the pluses and minuses about my job, by far the biggest plus is it ends when I walk out the door.
