Decent Money Does Not A Good Job Make...

Let me start off by saying that, Yes, I am lucky to have a 9 to 5, weekend-off job that pays well and has good benefits, especially in the current economy.

That being said, I hate my job. It's tedious and un-important. There are so many rules and regulations governing what I can and cannot do, that I essentially operate in a box of limitations. It makes for one boring, bull-shit job that makes absolutely no difference to anyone. I'm not rewarded for using my brain, trying to be innovative, or introducing new methods to stream-line processes or improve organization.

All of this might be bearable if I wasn't surrounded by lazy, self-important drones who do the minimum of what is required of them and pass all shit tasks on to me simply because I'm the youngest.

If you haven't figured it out by now, I work for a government department. I will completely argee with people who say that MANY government employees are lazy and have it good. I have it good. But I HATE IT! I'm not an idiot, I'm not going to leave. I need to pay my bills. All I want is for some mental stimulation, some challenging tasks, and for everyone to stop using catch-phrases like 'support structure', 'transition period' and 'integrated approach'.
