24 Tumblr Posts That Perfectly Explain How Jobs Are The Worst

No matter what kind of work you do, I think we can all agree on something: having a job is kind of the worst. Yes, you should absolutely feel #blessed to be able to have a job that makes you money when so many people in the world don’t have that privilege. And yes, working is just part of our world and that will never change and you need to accept it. So, sure, complaining about your job sounds whiney and annoying, but let’s face it – talking about how working sucks is a treasured pastime that will also never stop. Especially when the whining is amusing and relatable on Tumblr.

I’ve had a steady job since I was 14-years-old and helped out with an arts and crafts program at the beach by my house a few hours five days a week. Before that, I was a babysitter and a mother’s helper, and after that Very Important arts and crafts job, I moved on to being a waitress for seven years. Then I went into retail for a very brief period of time (folding underwear at Victoria’s Secret is *literally* a nightmare), I interned at Us Weekly and HollywoodLife.com, met and interviewed celebrities, and then landed my full-time gig here at Gurl. I have had amazing jobs and I have had terrible jobs, but one thing is for sure: there is always something to complain about! (But for real I love working at Gurl and it is like the best job one could want and I’m not just saying that!)

If you too love complaining about your job, whether it’s part time or full time, a dream position or just something to make you money while you’re in school, then you’ll appreciate these Tumblr posts. Because yes, you are lucky to have a job, but also, yes, you’re allowed to whine about it once in a while. Here are some of the funniest Tumblr posts about how having a job can be the worst sometimes. Now get back to work and make that money!
