6 Reasons I Could Never Work A 9 To 5 Job

6 Reasons I Could Never Work A 9 To 5 Job

I was recently hired at my dad's work which is a custom office furniture company. It includes spending a lot of time at a computer and desk.


1. There's a LOT of sitting involved.

In high school and college, of course you sit a lot in classes. But at a job, it's on a whole other level. In classes you walk between transition periods. At work, you can walk to the bathroom, the break-room, and that's about it. I'm an extremely antsy person which is why this doesn't work for me and sitting still is difficult for me. I always have to be doing something.

2. Looking at a computer screen all day becomes a NIGHTMARE. 

It's honestly just the worst. It hurts your eyes and gives you unnecessary headaches. I'd just rather avoid the migraines all together.

3. It begins to hurt your muscles.

I think we all know that a sedentary lifestyle leads to more aches than there should be. After sitting at my desk chair and staring at a computer screen all day, my neck began to hurt. I was so confused. Then, I realized the cause.

4. There's not enough to do.

Of course there are multiple errands I have to run and whatnot, but other than I'm doing the same thing over and over. I don't get to go anywhere or see different things. I'm just stuck.

5. Sorting and organizing files begins to feel like a death sentence. 

Pretty self explanatory.

6. It's just plain boring.

I end up scrolling through my email and shopping online. I go down a hole of doing things I don't normally do.

Although I know 9 to 5 jobs are a necessary evil but who actually wants to do them? I'm sure some people love what they do and work in an office setting but for me, it's just not the move. Sometimes it's nice to just sit and relax in a desk chair but all the time I'm spending working here is driving me crazy. I'm tired, hungry, and bored. This is basically my rant of why I hate my job.
