Office "workers" bleating on about how hard they work.

I always feel like the point of these threads is for people to laugh at office workers and say
“ha! we work harder than you and for less money!”
erm…well done you?
The plus side is that the manual worker hasn’t become completely emasculated.Posted 4 years ago
Seriously, the stench of oestrogen in here can be a fraction stifling.
My ‘office job’ certainly wasn’t 9-5 and did involve site work too – it was a reasonable salary of £40k+, company car and other benefits. To a degree I was my own boss and ended up in my position as a Contracts Manager from initially being out on site as a skilled op and working my way up.
In the end it ground me down, partly due to myself and the way I managed things, but largely due to the actual working environment. I’m now back doing what I do best and wouldn’t go back. Fortunately, I am now my own boss of two businesses and I get paid very well for standing in a shitty hole at the side of the motorway.
Downside – the supervisor working for the company I work for spent half the night covered in blood, helping walking wounded whilst the emergency services attempted to cut a mangled lad out of a car that had come through the works and rolled 50mtrs down the motorway on it’s roof. Not sure how he, or his pregnant g/f are doing – here’s hoping they are going to pull through 🙁 Fortunately none of the gang working nearby were injured, but it’s a dangerous environment.Posted 4 years agohooliMember
I am a desk jockey and some days I would love to be outside doing something a bit more manual. In reality I think if I did that I would long to be sat in a warm office drinking good coffee.
My answer is to not let work rule my life and to do fulfilling things outside of work.Posted 4 years ago
