I been supporting myself with my dj equipment since 17. Easily earning $250 in less than 5 hours.
I started working at a dealership at age 20 and now I have 1 1/2 years there and barely got a small raise from minimum wage last week.
I don't really need the job since I can live on $200 a month maybe even less.
I see people taken advantage of everywhere and I don't really like people bossing me around.
I just finished building my home studio so its back to living the easy life and no more 8-5 for me.
I pretty much get to choose to work or not and its something I really enjoy doing.

and getting ready? Can't take the mental anguish any longer. If it were not for my sig other telling me to hold off until I find something else, I would have said "bye-bye" a long time ago. Have some interest in other companies, hopefully it pans out. I really wonder to what degree the 2 week rule is mandatory? I would never come back...
Anyone else, just say bye-bye one day, and not give a crap?edit on 26-4-2013 by pityocamptes because: (no reason given)

I've been retired for a year now, but often have bad dreams about work. Even last night, there I was, back in the Lab, trying to do my job under impossible circumstances and demands. PTSD lite?

Yes, I used to work for Discount Tire at their corporate office.
Nothing is more sickening than an office environment where your performance is based on how many cupcakes you bring to the pot-luck instead of performance or how they utilized your idea and saved thousands of dollars.
Every day I woke up and counted in my head how much personal time I had left and if it would be justified in using more.
