In my mind
also thinking, i'm not interested in 90% of the nonsense most people care about.
So, what are the top 10 things you do care about? That should be a thread. I just don't feel like making one right now. Are you bored? Maybe you can do it instead. Ha! ha!

I've read about in in other thread... now I'm thinking, what is a bad job?
I used to think of mine as not good and I don't like it sometimes(sometimes it's cool and sometimes can be quite boring) , don't get as much money as others - is it a bad work? Most of my friends says it is not good, my family says it is bad. But maybe it is still not so bad though, sitting at home, pressing the keys and getting not big, but more than the average salary :rolleyes:

From a managerial perspective, having a job should be a good thing and nobody should absolutely dread going to work. If you dread going to work, it's time to look for another job. The reason is because job stress will increase over time as a natural evolution of working. The pros and cons to this are that in pros it's the same amount of work, just a different kind of work. The cons to it are that understanding this means it's more mental than it is anything else.

I know people who work at home and make a great salary, but are no more happy because their home and their work are the same. I've suggested to them to rearrange a little bit and put all of their business stuff in one room, like an office, to help alleviate some of the feeling of it. That way you have a designated space for work separate from the rest of your living quarters to help keep the mental separation between work and home life. That's why people do things like organize or decorate their home office so often. To keep freshening up familiarity when needed to try to help.

I have this conversation with one friend about once a month, actually. He's a commercial server liaison, and I'm in retail/wholesale management.

I explained it to him as:
"You make more, but your prison and your living quarters are the same, so you never get out of it. At least I can treat mine separately and juggle/counterweight a bit."

That's the thing about working from home:
You have to make space in your home for your work, or the two merging will very easily make a knot of a situation.

When him and I were kids, he was mostly a PC gamer.
But given his career path and that he works from home from his computer, he's switched back to console gaming as a hobby to help separate work from home.

I'm building my 4th 3d printer now will see if they all 4 today make too much noise so that i should keep them where i live or nearby at a place that i've rented, should be under 200 decib. max at full speed so it's like 4 airconditioners in one room, manageable.

I can’t decide if no one ever coming to see this old lady is because she was/is a crabby greedy judgmental person or if everyone in her family is just shitty. Probably a bit of both. What does it say that her son would rather pay me triple time to stay half a day than to come deal with her himself?

I also know people who don't like working from home. Most of my friends prefer not to work remotely.

But I'm quite opposite to it, I hate being in office, there is too much communication for me there, it takes too much energy. I don't need to separate space and I've be in remote work long before COVID, I think since 2011. But I have a comfortable working place.
Most of my co-workers(from a department) also decided not to go back to office(they had to work from work during COVID last year).

I like it when work is where my laptop is. Sometimes I work from a cafe or from a car(not so comfortable though), and I feel it all as a freedom. Probably the fact that I don't feel it as a prison means that my work is quite good for me.

You know, I read this earlier and it keeps popping back into my mind. I think it says that her son is not a nice person and might have some regrets someday, if he has a conscience.

People can be difficult and the old lady does sound like she could be challenging, but it's a holiday and he can't come over to see his mother? I wonder how many sleepless nights she went through because he was sick or crying or how many things she gave up in her life so he could have more. And he can't spare an afternoon to be with her?
