quitting your job in order to do absolutely nothing
« on: June 11, 2019, 11:44:25 AM »
does anyone have any experience with this. sick of it lads. working all the time doing something i couldn't give less than a shit about for barely enough money to exist long enough to do the same boring shite for another month. fuckin point. so the plan is to quit the job and do fuck all. how can this be achieved. was thinking i would quit the job and 'go travelling', this is a thing that is generally acceptable to family isn't it. get on my bike and cycle to greece or something. become a greece man maybe. any advice warmly welcomed thanks

Surely you have millions of subscribers on YouTube from your falling off the bike video, must be stinking rich.

my boss quit to do nothing much other than play his little drum at Escape From Samsara but I think he said he was able to live off the dividends from his shares in the Falklands or something.

I did this after being burnt out from 13-plus years at my previous job. I left the day of the Brexit vote (great omen) and had a great time lazing about for a few months until I realised my savings were running out and I hadn't done most of the things I'd intended to do with the free time. Finding a new permanent job after being out of work for a few months was a nightmare and I ended up doing a number of shit temporary jobs (including one "recruitment" role for such an evil bunch of cunts it left me depressed and disillusioned for ages) to keep the wolf from the door. It took me around 18 months to find a proper job and get my life back to normal again.

I don't regret doing it at all (and would do it again in a flash had I the cash), but I regret that I squandered the opportunity and time. I'd still recommend doing it if you feel that way, just don't be an idiot like I was/am.

You can get money for doing fuck all if you sign up to a paid clinical trial. You almost probably won't die and can get about £3K for  a two week trial.

You mean you have to film a brand new take every time someone views it? Well, I can see why you're pissed off with it.

Send every take of it to You've Been Framed, should be able to retire then.

Underpants? What are ya, some kind of freakin American baloney and poindexter? Or do you wear extra pants under your normal pants (which are called PANTS not UNDERPANTS)?

Can you do nothing in your current job instead?  I once did very little up to and including excusing myself to go to the cinema one afternoon before returning to say goodbye and go home.  Could be the answer?

That's brilliant, thought I had it quite good, doing the bare minimum. What film did you watch?

That's impressive shirking.

I quite liked a 'working from home' skive. I ripped my cd collection that way.

It was Eastern Promises.  I left (the job) through utter boredom and now have too much work to do like there’s karma at work or something.

Yes but you have to not be riddled with all sorts of other shit in other to qualify and I’m sure kittens’ body is probably completely fucked already. You also have to not be a total knobhead wastrel, that’s the first thing they ask you: “are you a knobhead wastrel?” so most people are asked to leave right at the first hurdle. Good system if you ask me. Although don’t actually ask me

Have you thought about becoming a criminal kittens?  I believe it can be very well paid and you, more or less, work your own hours.  Something like that would enable you to save towards running away fully. 

You might have to run away fully anyway, all part of the job, but at least you'd be doing what you wanted at that point and you'd have some clams banked, probably not actually banked, for the journey.  Not saying you should, not saying you shouldn't.  Just leaving it there.

Not really.  Unless you have an army and are prepared to use it.

Soz for the disappoint.
