Yes, but that's not why I'm above average, subby, if you know what I mean.

Gene Masseth Jr.: 7 years as of August.

Haven't had a raise in 4 years.

I've applied over 100 places in the past year and gotten nothing.  I want out, but I can't get out until I get something else because I can't have no income in life.  So, instead, I just stick it out and slowly die inside more and more every day.

Ask me if I'm bitter.


Been at my "job" for only a year. In that time I've had 3 supervisors, 4 team leads, including one that I had to file a harassment complaint on (he was moved to another agency and later promoted of course), and my duties significantly reduced in retaliation for not putting up with his advances/treatment despite me continually asking for more work. I'm working on my master's so that keeps my mind from turning to mush and Fark keeps me entertained throughout the day.
As soon as I graduate I'm gone.

StopLurkListen: Software developer - in 20 years, only one job lasted longer than three years. I gave up caring about doctors/dentists because health insurance changed every year even when my job didn't change. Also, having to wait a year to start contributing to a 401k? Whoever wrote that rule needs to burn in Hell.

They need to burn along with the person who designed my 401k plan.  You don't get to keep 100% of the company match until you have been with the company 5 years.

cryinoutloud: I've never had a full-time, year-round job. Never. Part of it is my career field, part where I live, and part you don't even want to know.

/I HAVE worked seasonal jobs for multiple years. And a lot of those I only did it because I couldn't find anything better.

Is that you, A-Rod?

25 years. when I walked in I was starry eyed 20 something with dreams in his eyes. planning to see how far this life would take me! what magical journey I was on, how I would set the world afire!
and now,
my life almost over, no dreams realized, no real accomplishments to fruition. just a lonely empty husk of a man with no future no goals within reach. cursing every morning when I wake up whatever god's there may be, that I have to continue this pitiful, worthless existence that is my life.
/but the pays o.k. and it's steady.
