  • well I would give the 19 yr old a list or tell him what you are going to do and tell him to get something done...then you will start something together. Sometimes you have to put your foot down and let soemone know that you will not do all the work for them. YOu could tell him you go home wore out when working with him and you would like to divide up the job..which would he prefer doing and let him pick something to do. Try to find a way to challenge yourself at the job even if it is just a head game for you. I try to get som many bills in..or race to have a certain job done in a certain amount of time. anything to ingonre the boring tasks. Bring in some good music if you can.

  • Start by looking for something else,Get your resume out there.
    Jobs are so hard to find these days.
    Talk to your supervisor about the kid.
    Take one day at a time.

  • I'm kind of in the same boat. I have a great job ~~ but I hate it! I've just been doing the same thing for too long and I'm really burned out and I wanted a complete change in my life. I found Scentsy. I actually took a leap into something I never thought I wld do & found I am in love with it! I started selling Scentsy, the wickless candle & fell in love with all of it. "TOTALLY out of my Normal"..but the customers LOVE it & they love seeing me! I've been in it for a yr now, pt time & Will go f/time ths yr. YEA!
    My income with it has gone from about $300.00 a month to now about $1500.00. I'm waiting for $2000.00 whch sld be in a month or two. Some do it quicker, I did it part time. No kiddin though. I am 47 & hve been doing office wk for 20 yrs - now I won't have to rely on anyone but me!
    I am now always looking for someone else that wants the same thing - happiness!

  • I would be miserable if I had to work a job I did not like.I have done them just to make ends meat.I would try looking for something else I would like doing and when soemthing I like doing comes through I would quit that one all together you do not want to be miserable.

  • I have been in your position before. It is miserable and it is hard not to bring your bad mood home to your family. You have got to get out of there it is very bad for your health to be that unhappy. If you can stick it out for a few months I would suggest looking into this business. Within a few months with this company you will have replaced your income and probably make even more. This company is not like any other company that I have ever done or tired before. Why? Because you can actually make money and it is really can be done from home. I'm very excited about what I'm doing and I hope that you can find something that brings you joy.

  • I have a home based business and am my own boss! I don't have to deal with issues like that, although I have in the past - which is why I love working from home. Visit my website at for more information. My website is still a work in progress, but visit my blogs for a wealth of information. Good luck and if I can be of further assistance, just let me know!
