But sometimes, it's just time to drop tools and bail.
Without the fear, we would become soulless and dull. Lifeless entities with no motivation or ambition. Another step up on the nihilistic ladder of emptiness which results in us eventually acknowledging that life is entirely meaningless and we should probably drown ourselves in a river. Some of you might be feeling like that now. You might be having fantasies of a Lester Burnham style resignation letter to your boss culminating with doing a shit on the printer. And that’s fine; we've all been there. Just look out for the signs so you can avoid getting to that point.
1 - You spend more time wanking than you do anything else
2 - You have started playing Bullshit Bingo
3 - Your boss is an asshole
4 - Your duties have increased, but your pay hasn’t
5 - You have started hitting on the ugly women
6 - You understand that everything you do is trivial and no one will remember you in 100 years time, but your colleagues don’t
7 - The highlight of your day is the Planet Rock Power Hour
8 - Emails have become a way of playing Hangman instead of communicating about work
9 - The smoking shelter is rife with conversation about how bad the company is
If you’re unsure regarding any of the above, just quit. That’s what I did.
