14 Signs You Should Probably Quit Your Job

Ahh January! The month that sees us thrown back into reality after the holiday period with such brutal force you feel like all your hangovers have come at once. The days are dark, the post-holiday depression is real, and the KPI’s are unreasonably high – but soon enough you get back into the swing of things and you get on with it *happily, business as usual.

Or do you?   

We all have shitty days at work BUT if you can relate to three or more of these,  pack it in and pack it up girl – it’s time to go before you lose your freaking mind.

You snooze your alarm more than 3 times every morning…

You cry on the bus on the way to work…

You cry on your lunch break…

You spend more time in the bathroom than at your desk. Not peeing, just pondering. Pondering life outside of these four walls…

You’ve looked at the clock more than three times throughout the day to determine the hours until hometime, not your next meeting…

You find yourself on your second coffee by 11am because…you just can’t…

You spend more time calculating how much more you’d need to be getting paid to flee the country as opposed to actually doing the work to warrant said payrise…

You cry on your way home from work…

You NEED a wine or five to unwind after a long day…

You can’t get through a working day without your work wife. If she’s sick, you’re sick..sick of the shit…

You volunteer to do work outside of your role – just to shake up your day…

Extended lunches start to occur more often than not…

And lunch is your favourite time of day…

You start signing off more and more emails with the universally recognised pass-agress sign off of ‘regards’. No kind, just regards…

You feel heavy as you slump around the office…

You feel heavy as you slump around at home, dreading returning to the office…

And last but not least, you find yourself googling ‘how to become a millionaire’ frequently throughout the week…

If any of these sound familiar – book yourself a sick day in the name of mental health girl and re-assess your life. You spend half your life at work and it should bring you money joy!

To a bigger and better 2018!!!

*HR, I wrote this in jest and actually like my job. My job makes me happy. Wow, I really live and breathe my job.

**Ed’s note: Does she? I mean she offered to write this instead of doing her actual job…
