Poll: Job Poll Decision (35 votes)

A job you hate so much that makes you want to jump off a cliff for MORE money 17%
A job that you love, relaxed, good people, have great memories for LESS money 83%

Which type of job would you rather have?

I'm speaking generally speaking between a bad job that has $18 an hour VS a job that is $12 that you love so much

Second option.

If you love a job and have a passion for it, you really aren't working.

@monsterstomp: Well, I mean, you would still be working, but you wouldn't look at it as work :p

Trust me, the dream job wins every time. You can find ways to make up or adjust for that $6/hr

Having had two jobs I disliked immensely, I'd rather have one I like.

@wildvine: That was the fastest response time out of anyone on the vine lol. Yeah I'm currently working at a fast food place. After this summer is done I'm scratching off any fast food place on my job list.

#18 Posted by Spideysense44 (3563 posts) - - Show Bio

@monsterstomp: Well, I mean, you would still be working, but you wouldn't look at it as work :p

Like if you were a professional tennis player, and you loved to play, you aren't working.

@monsterstomp: It would still be your job so technically you'd still be working.

Anyway to the topic:

I think I'd like a bacon job.

@The_Deathstroker: Technically you are working, but you really wouldn't be working. I don't know why we're going around in circles with this if we agree lol. And Bacon Jobs ftw!

@monsterstomp: I blame our Battle Forum blood. It runs deep in all Viners.

I had a job that i hate so much but i enjoy living it man

My Motto is "Work Hard, Play Hard"

1st option.

#26 Posted by Quickfingers26 (1203 posts) - - Show Bio

If you hate the higher paying job so much you find yourself dreading coming to work, calling out sick and wanting to jump off a cliff... then take the lesser paying job.

If you are truly happy in your work, you may be able to advance in that second job and hopefully catch up to the money you previously walked away from.

Seeing how most of us spend most of our waking days at work, you shouldn't have to be miserable. Just be prepared to cut back on some expenses in the meantime.

The second option.

Money won't do you much good if you jump off a cliff.

Money is my passion.

Though it ultimately depends on what the pay difference is.

If we're talking me baby sitting for a living for 10 bucks an hour vs watching porn for a living for 9 dollars an hour, I choose porn.

But if we're talking baby sitting for 90 bucks an hour vs porn for 9...I choose baby sitting.
