    What part of your job do you hate the most?

    Mine is answering support tickets, hands down.
    When I was freelancing, it was chasing up invoices.

    Documentation. By the time I finish documenting something, I usually have to go back and revise it because something change.d Course, those changes tend to be implemented by me in the first place, so I'm kind of my worst enemy there....

    Constantly having to answer the phone - especially those so-called "courtesy calls" from salespeople.

    Yeah, random sales calls are pretty annoying--I almost forgot about those.

    I have one company that's been calling me almost every day for weeks. Since it's a sales call, I don't bother to pick up, and they never bother to leave a voicemail.

    1. Babysitting co-workers because they don't want to put in the effort to fully learn the job or figure out the problem(s) for themselves.
    2. Having to try "something new" every time we get a new boss even though it didn't work the last 10 times we tried it.
    3. Not being listened to or not being asked my opinion about a job I've done for over 20 years because I'm not management.
    4. Being told how to do my job by someone that doesn't even know what my job is (again, management issue)..


    The list could be a lot longer, but I think you get where it's going.......

    hahahaha!

    Yeap, I've had one of those jobs. They fired me eventually because I got fed up and mouthed off to the boss one too many times.

    There was also some drama about an office party I skipped, but it's a long story.
    Trying to fill the unforgiving minute
    with sixty seconds' worth of distance run.

    As a business owner and a web designer, the worst part is dealing with certain clients. They will try to get out of paying you at all costs so that is why I implemented a FULL upfront payment policy.
