Jump Ship?

I've never wanted to just run away from something so bad in my life! I can't stand this job any longer, and what's worse, is that if I did just go and "jump ship," it would be at my familie's expense. If I quit/walk away right now, I may be happy that I'm done with this fucking job, but at what cost? What's more important? Family or being happy with what you do? I don't know what to do anymore.... I HATE EVERYTHING about my job!!! There is nothing good of this place. Way to much for bullshit pay. I'm sick and tired of no one taking personal responsibility anymore. I'm tired of lack of communication between everyone that works here. How has this company not collapsed on itself yet? I just don't know what to do.....

    Find a better job before you jump ship, do not use work eMail to do this or you may not get the chance to jump ship. Sanitize your social media before you go looking & you’re doing the responsible thing… if there’s a chunk of pension to be considered the responsible thing may be to find a way to endure. The only thing that’s important is family unless you don’t have one… then it’s whatever makes you happy.

    Find a way to endure. If you can’t make it here in your present job, you can’t make it anywhere. You owe it to your family to tough it out. Imagine you are a Navy Seal Team leader on a mission facing enemy fire. It’s tough going. If you break under pressure, your team-mates are dead. It’s just a fucking job. Do it.

    If you have formal qualifications to enable you to jump ship, then do it ! There are plenty of employers and workplaces that function more effectively. Its critical to find an employer that supports, values, encourages and nurtures you – professionally. So. What are you waiting for ?! Start applying for other professional opportunities.

      Are you drunk on coffee? I’m not and can smell his lack of qualifications all the way from here. He has no leverage. Get it? Otherwise, he wouldn’t be boxed in like this. You have qualifications?

        Um. Who the fuck are you to make assertions ?! Even IF he has no formal quals he has experience on the job, and in a workplace to leverage off of on his CV when applying for other roles. Get it ?! Hmm. What you can smell, is the putrid vomit of your presumption simmering in your mouth ! 🤐🔫

      You don’t sound holy, my dear. The last thing a guy – backed up in a corner – needs is advice from a messed-up female. Drink your coffee and shove off.

        I didn’t say I was holy but what I will say, is that I’m real ! So. Stop making assertions, once again. Life experience has taught me that successful people take methodical & calculated risks, they don’t remain in a corner with their back against the wall. Only an immature cocksucker would encourage a grown man who feels defeated, to remain in a vicious cycle as such; until he’s depressed and rendered hopeless, even to his own family. Change, requires action of some sort !

      Well, not everyone would respond to a situation the same way. Your take is different from mine. You are for chucking a job if the employer is not supportive, nurturing and encouraging. That’s an understandable attitude coming from a woman. I am a guy and my first instinct is to stand my ground and deal with the problem; especially, when my family is dependent on me to provide for their security. My employer owes me nothing other than pay me for my the work I do.

        I’m not encouraging him to walk away from his income, without finding another job to walk into, first. An employer has an obligation to value, support and nurture their employees professionally to enable an individual to perform at their full capacity and to the best of their ability, which extends beyond just paying their salary.
        .
        If a person is unhappy, we implement a strategy to change that. He needs to do the same, and that entails canvassing other roles, and applying during his time off. Oft we spend 8 to 12 hours plus in our workplaces – 5 to 7 days a week, and most people are affected adversely psychologically IF they’re not satisfied within their workplace.
        .
        Its not all about the money as job satisfaction is critical to productivity. If I’m unhappy in a workplace, I don’t endure, I take my skills and quals elsewhere. Especially, if I’m being mistreated in the workplace. Clearly, he’s unhappy and wants out !
        .
        So. Instead of encouraging him to stay, until he’s fucked up and on the verge of a psychological breakdown, encourage him to find a more well balanced healthier workplace to work within as its evident he feels that the workplace he has been enduring is toxic.

          Hey, take it easy. This is virtual reality. At any rate, we don’t know what this guy does or who his employer is. He could be a hit-man working for El Chapo. Chill out. Let’s find a Starbucks and I’ll buy you a fancy coffee laced with cinnamon and all the trimmings. I take mine with a shot of whiskey.

            Pfft. Virtual reality ! Um. That’s just an excuse for immature cocksuckers to behave like immature cocksuckers ! I’m not a virtual machine, that lingers in a virtual reality. I’m a real person, just like the guy who authored this post. So. Treat him kindly as you would the bloke sitting on the bus next to you, who might seek your counsel. Otherwise, STFU and keep your misinformed assertions & opinions to yourself.

            PS ~ I’m more of a chai tea drinker… these days.

              Chai tea? That’s masala tea. Are you into Ahimsa yoga also? I’ve trekked through India in the search of light and ended up in Bhutan where the Buddha revealed that all life is an illusion – i.e. virtual reality. The cyberworld we are in is virtual reality twice-removed. But it’s all real to you folks: flaky women in yoga pants sipping chai tea, and dumbasses with tattoos and man-buns. You people can keep that. I’ll stick to being American with my Tennessee whiskey and Smith n Wesson.

            Virtual reality is purely for those who can’t cope in the real world because they have no real life experience that enables them to evolve past their virtual reality, and that includes immature cocksuckers that feel the need to carry a firearm, and self medicate on whiskey whilst making assertions about people they know nothing about, once again ! :fang:

          People are illusions such as the person who you think you are. It takes guts to face the fact that you are nobody. But you would rather sip that tea, infuse yourself with that aroma, and materialize as a goddess of loving kindness reaching out to sad sacks seeking counsel. Jack Daniels is not my doctor; he is a friend and great company for introspective trips. Smith n Wesson is a buddy who goes hunting with me when I feel like Mother Nature.

            And there you go again, making assertions about people you know nothing about ! I never ever professed to be a goddess, so get the fuck off your high horse, cocksucker. And, the reason i no longer drink coffee in abundance is due to the kidney stones that had me pissing blood for almost a week, so STFU with your assertions ! The way you justify your tendency to indulge in alcohol is pathetic, as is the reason for carrying a firearm. Men, who frolic with Mother Nature, are rarely wasting their time immersed in virtual reality.

          Sorry about the blood but thanks for the warning. I had better watch my coffee consumption. I didn’t know it can cause kidney stones. Hey, life isn’t easy to deal with. Oftentimes, there is a slow-burn depression hanging in the air on account of the way the world is. I could be driving up to the traffic lights heading home and a sorry-looking ass comes up with a “Homeless, I’ve not eaten..” sign. Why are we not taking care of him instead of burning $100 million of tax money on cruise missiles to bomb a Syrian airbase to make a point? That’s when I need a drink when I get home. Even though it’s virtual reality, it still sucks.
