I hear fables of people that love their job...…. It's kind of like bigfoot..... I hear about it but never see it. Who on here truly loves their job? I mean to the point that they can't wait to get to work and are bummed when the day is done? I make a decent living but hate mine and this working for a living is getting in the way of my hobbies wink Oh how I wish I could just hit the lottery and not have to worry about money.

No I don't enjoy my job … I am retired... and I never get a day off or a vacation … and the pay is terrible.

I like my job but don't like the company


Thought I was a good trapper until I started trapping coyotes......
Thought I was a good bowhunter until I targeted mature bucks....

That's true work never gets in the way so you always have time to get the projects done and one day leads into another heck some times I'm not sure what day it is when I'm really busy not sure what month. LOL

I never had a job that I didn't truly enjoy. 24 years in the USAF as a bomb tech. Got to blow things up, learned how to disarm everything from a 22 cal round to a thermonuclear warhead, and had camaraderie with other bomb techs that was tight. After that I went straight into beaver trapping full time for 28 years. After dad passed, I got to take over Dobbins' Products, and I love it. I don't think I could work a job I didn't enjoy.

25 years working in my own stores was great. Nice folks as customers and not too many employees. I loved going to work most every day unless the ducks were flying.

Retirement isn't bad either.

Really enjoy my job. Self employed I lawn care business. Does get a little crazy at times, but get a lot of satisfaction out of a beautiful lawn. Also drive semi for a farmer hauling grain to market. Mainly my winter job . I enjoy driving, not really a job. Farmer just tells me on Monday what and where to haul and leaves me alone. Sometimes I don't see him all week

Yes, I love my job.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I have been in that situation before .But think about how bad it would be if you hated your job and the people you report to

Holding piglets for pig castrator was one of the best jobs in the past 53 yrs of jobs! Present job is a little stressful. Wondering where I'm going hunting for bear and doe with muzzleloader today?

I have only had one job that I did not enjoy, I worked in a building. My favorite was operating heavy equipment. Now I’m kind of a “man of leisure” however I don’t know how much longer as I recently was offered an opportunity to join a crane operation. That sounds like a lot of fun!
