  • I've done this- I took a lesser paying job b/c my boss was a total witch w/ a capital "B"- and I wanted more family friendly hours. I like this job much better & we've managed to get by.

  • I would work the job I hated until I had enough saved to work the one I loved

  • You spend way too much of your life at work to be doing something you hate. Plus the stress or ulcers it would create would negate any money. Still, sometimes, we have to work at a job we don't like, until we are in a position to find a better one.
