When you first start working at a place you really wanted to, you do your best, go above and beyond and take pride in your work. But then things get monotonous, leadership fails you, and you find that your co-workers have nothing to do but talk bad about each other.
You then think of your first day and what lead to this very moment. Then you stop giving your all, stop going above and beyond and you stop taking pride in your work. You imagine scenarios in your head about the moment when you tell your boss you’re resigning with a big smile on your face; but soon this smile will fade away as you realize you don’t have an alternative job as it is hard to find a new job in a bad economy. The picture of your family at your desk reminds you of obligations, mouths to feed, and taxes to pay, so you decide to swallow your pride and continue doing this shitty job by putting a fake smile every morning and pretending you will be okay.
