    My current job is a waitress at a Brick Oven Pizza Place called Bertucci’s. My favorite part of the job is the tips I get above and beyond my paycheck. My least favorite thing is I am on my feet the entire shift.

    That’s definitely a hard job, Tearknee.

    The challenges I face in my job are both the favorite and least favorite things.  I like that I’m intellectually challenged, yet the very fact that I am challenged makes me feel inferior at times.  I try to keep my sense of humor, like “Server : 10, Crystal : 0”  Eventually, I end up claiming victory over the servers and computers.

    I love my freedom and working from home. I feel there’s little better than getting to work barefoot.

    I hate when prople dump stuff on me I can’t handle, but learning and getting it to work keeps getting me raises, I get like 5-10% a year. But oh dear it’s so stressful! I also really hate when I’m screwed with server bullshit like this week, my queries are cut off because they’ve restricted memory use.

    I can only say about my last job, but my favourite was  configuring a software application such that an unskilled disabled user could easily communicate and control their environment (Tv, intercom etc). (Think similar to Stephen Hawking). The least favourite was to have to visit people miles away from base (in the next counties etc) to do this. It was very tiring,  I didn’t mind travelling otherwise.

    I love being creative and writing is my passion. I hate being on my own too often, though: I like to be around people and enjoy myself. Being at home working all the time is very isolating and I like to step out of my comfort zone. Still, I am not complaining: writing is wonderful.

    That is very clever Jen, I like my new job as I am being challenged frequently but it is rewarding being in charge of an office, some of the guys though probably don’t like being told what to do by a woman. This has led to several tricky moments but I can handle them ( no freudian slip there ! ).

    I have to do research on properties my company is thinking of buying. This requires job site visits when the various trades are still working. Invariably there will be cat calls and such. I know I attract their attention because I am a tall woman in a skirt and heels- and a hard hat usually. Still it makes me uncomfortable and I try to go on site on Saturdays.

    Men never change. No wonder you feel so uncomfortable. They need to be told their behaviour is not on, Rhonda333.

    There can sometimes be a fine line between wolf whistles and  harrassment. I don’t mind them, but it would be worrying to walk into the lion’s den.

    Some men have no class. STOP WOLF WHISTLING.

    P.S sorry for the capitals.

    I really do love my job as a teacher, but if I had to complain about one thing it would be the early start to the day.

    An addendum to my previous post: I spend a lot of time on my own, but it does get lonely. I do feel I need to go out more often and just socialize more. Because people are wonderful and it’d be nice to be more active. I do like getting along with people but just don’t go out often enough. I am a little stuck in my ways, but this is who I am. Still, I have many friends and just hope they stick around. I shouldn’t need to hope though!

    Back to my job: my favourite part is making up info packs. I can’t think of my least favourite part of my job at the charity, though!

    As stated in a previous post: I am an instructor at a day center for the intellectually disabled.

    Favorite:  the people that I help and knowing that what I do every day truly makes a difference.

    Least Favorite:  the politics of where I work.  It’s so clique-y here and I do not fit in.  I feel like I’m back in high school.  Constantly people make me feel isolated and incompetent.  My boss is almost 80, constantly forgetting things, and impossible to go to when I need something or need genuine advice/information.

    That’s a pain, psychmommy. It’s hard to work in a clique-y workplace. Thankfully I don’t have that problem, but I can feel your pain. But your work as an instructor sounds wonderful and very rewarding. The disabled are wonderful people and I love them myself. Because you are making a difference.

    Back to your office job: it sounds like a problem. I may be able to help with solutions? If you’re willing to post about them, I’d be happy to offer advice.

    P.S

    I don’t mean to sound patronizing.
