Can hating your job have a severely negative impact on the rest of your life? I've answered phones at a Mercedes-Benz dealership for the past six years and I hate it. I've always hated it. I hate the customers. I hate most of the people who work here. I hate the fluorescent lights and the cubicles. I hate being talked down to like I'm some sort of moron every day. I simply cannot stand it. Until just a few minutes ago, I didn't really consider the fact that this could be the root cause of a lot of my distress. I've never been this depressed before. I feel completely hopeless.
