Almost everyone I know my age has had a job of some sorts. I am an anomaly, not lucky 😂
most jobs are horrible. Most places they want you working like speedy gonzalez, basically as fast as humanly possible and kick up a massive fuss or sack you if you don't.

working faster is basically a lowkey way of making you do more work, as the work just keeps on coming.

in jobs like admin also. if people leave they often take forever replacing them and just try and dump their workload on the remaining staff, and ofcourse they expect you to finish it all, or else...

the 9 to 5. you wake up early in the morning to get to work, come home in the evening. you watch tv, have dinner. by time you're feeling ok and have unwound a little it's 8pm. day basically over. wake up at 6am and the whole cycle starts again. Sometimes due to stress, you don't unwind. You know you've got xzy that you didn't manage to finish because your boss laboured you with a ridiclous amount of work to do. He's gonna be pissed tommorow. Am I gonna still have a job at the end of the month?

X this by 5 days a week in a row.
friday evening comes and you go home. it takes you like a day to recover from the working week. it's now saturday evening. there's a reason far more people go for a night out on saturday rather than friday, it's because they're still wacked out from work.

after you've recovered, you get only about a day and halfs true rest because it's monday morning, and look it's 6am the cycle starts again......

A depressing reality for most people unfortunately.
