“I’ve been there - stuck in a job I hated…” – Lauren Saxton ACC
It was the first post-Christmas get together with my girlies since we had all gone back to work. My friend Stef is a nursery nurse and she HATES her job. She works long hours and receives the minimum wage. She works for a private nursery and the manager isn’t a very nice lady (to be polite). “Today’s my first day back and I am already so depressed” she whinged. My other friend Charlotte is a cashier in a bank, she doesn’t mind her job but says it bores her as it is the same every day. Charlotte soon jumped on the band wagon “Don’t even get me started, you’re lucky you had time off over Christmas, I only had the bank holidays off”. We had all started our healthy eating and were participating in dry January so I couldn’t decide if this was why they were both in such bad moods – but I was on rabbit food and water too and I didn’t feel the same way.
