7 Signs You Need to Find Another 9 to 5

August 15, 2022

It’s Monday again, and capitalism is making us do this annoying thing called work. Problem is some people actually love it. We need those people to leave their jobs and go do something else because something’s wrong somewhere. If you love Mondays, and weekends absolutely aren’t your thing, then this post is calling your name. 

You love your job

How can you love your job? It means you’re already losing focus because work is supposed to be fire and brimstone.

You have a crush on your boss

It’s obvious you’re not there for work. Why are you even wasting your time with the job when you already know what you want? Don’t let your 9 to 5 stop you from chasing your dreams, fam.

You’re good at your job

Then you should be doing something else, please. You need a new challenge.

Your 9 to 5 doesn’t stress you out

Is that one even a real 9 to 5? Let me just tell you now. What you have is a hobby and not a job. Find another one.

You actually have your weekends to yourself

So they told you you’d work five days a wee,k and it wasn’t a lie? You don’t mean it.

You love Mondays

Your salary is actually enough for you

Maybe you need to write us a book because how are your money skills not shaking at the sight of inflation? How can your salary be enough for you in this economy? You need to find another job right now.

You love your coworkers

Do you mean you actually like them and are not just doing eye service? Wow. Fix up, please.
