At the risk of sounding odd, I will actually stand up and say I do like this job.

Granted, there are times when I wake up in a cold sweat at 3:00 in the morning thinking about it, however, I don't know how I would put up with the bad times without liking the work.

Joe must like SOMETHING about it too, you only get really good at something you like.

Go ahead, fire away at me. :gom:

Like just after I said I like the job, Acrobat crashed.

Then I forgot the "command - option J" thing and all that wonky separations trouble came back.

Now that's comedy!

Yeah, the ownership seems to be getting in the way more and more these days. Leaves me wondering who owns the company some times.

Guess it's hard to own the company and not know what's going on as much anymore. Things have changed a lot and are changing constantly.

Inmates are running the asylum these days.

Yes I actually like the work but despise the bullshit I have to go through to do the actual work. In my shangri la I would go to work in an empty building and the work would just be there waiting for me to do it. If there are any problems I could just email whomever to resolve it and never, EVER have to deal with a customer in person or over the phone. I hate phones. And people. Well...most people.

I used to have something like that during my first job in printing. I was switched to second shift, typesetting and pasteup, and I WAS second shift. No phones, no people, no problems, just get it done.

I actually don't mind the work itself, albeit working with obsolete computers and software. There's three things I really don't like, and they have nothing to do with the actual digital work:

1. The daily 100 km roundtrip commute esp. in winter.

2. Dealing with the corporate suits that run our division from 250 km away. We are now just a number in a ledger.

3. The corporate "politically correct" rules we now have to live by.

Especially #3 - it's pure BS - it's now better to be politically correct than correct.
Sweet FA right now.

It was like that when I started here. At 5:00 pm was just me for the rest of the night. It was bliss.

I do like what I do. I'm quite proud of it in fact.

Like others have stated it's all the bullshit that goes along with it. It would also help my mood if I actually had some prepress work. I'm falling asleep at my damn desk today.

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.
