parts of your job you hate

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Kirstie, 16 Jun 2008.

  1. Today I am having MASSIVE trouble getting going on a task which I LOATHE - drafting teaching material. It would be OK if I was vaguely interested in the subject matter, but frankly it bores me to death and i'd have more fun sticking forks in my eyes and scooping them out with hot spoons. The result is I've been sitting here looking at this for a whole day, with a looming deadline, and I've not written a word. It's crap and I hate it xx(;):sad::angry:

    What parts of your job do you hate and why, and even better are you doing it today so I know I'm not alone :wacko:

    I hate dealing with incompetent or out of their depth solicitors. You'd be surprised how many there are in my particular field. Why people think it is appropriate to go to a high street solicitor for advice on a regulatory matter I don't know... they'd get as good advice asking at the local corner shop or fishmongers. :angry:

    I hate pretty much all of it. It's good when I get to travel, and it's good when the bosses are away, but otherwise it's a nightmare!

    Why is this world filled with managers who have no people skills whatsoever?

    I blame the Peter Principle!
