Poll: Job Poll Decision (35 votes)

A job you hate so much that makes you want to jump off a cliff for MORE money 17%
A job that you love, relaxed, good people, have great memories for LESS money 83%

Which type of job would you rather have?

I'm speaking generally speaking between a bad job that has $18 an hour VS a job that is $12 that you love so much

Second option.

If you love a job and have a passion for it, you really aren't working.

Trust me, the dream job wins every time. You can find ways to make up or adjust for that $6/hr

I'd rather have the job I like for less money.

And wow, 15 votes and the 2nd is leading 100% First time I've seen that on the site.

Having had two jobs I disliked immensely, I'd rather have one I like.

@wildvine: That was the fastest response time out of anyone on the vine lol. Yeah I'm currently working at a fast food place. After this summer is done I'm scratching off any fast food place on my job list.

Like if you were a professional tennis player, and you loved to play, you aren't working.

@monsterstomp: It would still be your job so technically you'd still be working.

Anyway to the topic:

I think I'd like a bacon job.

If you hate the higher paying job so much you find yourself dreading coming to work, calling out sick and wanting to jump off a cliff... then take the lesser paying job.

If you are truly happy in your work, you may be able to advance in that second job and hopefully catch up to the money you previously walked away from.

Seeing how most of us spend most of our waking days at work, you shouldn't have to be miserable. Just be prepared to cut back on some expenses in the meantime.

Money won't do you much good if you jump off a cliff.

Money is my passion.

Though it ultimately depends on what the pay difference is.

If we're talking me baby sitting for a living for 10 bucks an hour vs watching porn for a living for 9 dollars an hour, I choose porn.

But if we're talking baby sitting for 90 bucks an hour vs porn for 9...I choose baby sitting.
