    Well, there is no point in being unhappy. While you are looking for another job - be thankful for the one you have b/c there can be no doubt that someone out there would love to have it. You will find another...it takes time.

    Har Har Joe. Being a carrier would mean a year or so of no income and lots of expenses, so that wouldn't be fair to my husband. And for the rest....umm.... No :)

    I can't look for a job. I've been there 3 months! I'm stuck for at least another 7.

    All I hear is "be grateful" but that just sounds like a polite way of saying "quit crying" - and it it doesn't mean that then I don't know what it does mean.. I'm glad I can pay my share but why should that mean I can't want more or better? You can be happy to be alive yet still wish that your leg wasn't broken. I'm sure there's horse industry desk jobs in my area, but I just don't know how to find their job postings.

    (I got to hear my coworkers all literally screaming to their phones because half of them were on speaker and the other half was trying to hear and raised their own voices. It was so loud I had my phone streaming satellite at full volume and couldn't hear it less than a foot away from me so I shut it off.)

    Not quite actually. You can (and probably should if you are so unhappy) always look for a different job. But looking for a different job while you have a job is much more pleasant and beneficial than when you are on unemployment (also better from the resume standpoint).

    You'll be lucky to have a job when you're old enough, if the economy doesn't improve. Don't denigrate something that brings in money for people, and keeps them from having to live in shelters and give up their horses.

    Don't get me wrong, I do very much appreciate having the job that I have. I know many would be eager to take my place. I work for a very stable global corporation with great benefits and a lot of fantastic, talented people. I'm just a little burnt out at the moment.

    i do have a job...im 20 so I think im old enough. Im in Army intelligence...im not ragging on it. And I know it brings in money because the money I send to my parents from MY job is the only way theyre able to afford to take care of my horse, while im stationed here...

    Im well aware of the little job opportunies in the civilian world...which is why im still in the army.
    Sorry for any misunderstanding I wasnt talking crap about desk jockeys I was just making fun of myself for being one....

    I think she was referring to her own job as lame, not someone else's.
