List Rules Don't list specific names (CEOs, coworkers, companies, etc), please.

Unless you have that dream job where you work your own high-paying hours designing illusions for top tier magicians on the Vegas strip... you probably have something about your job you hate. Some of us work under the most employee-hating conditions imaginable (Wal-Mart *cough*), some of us work 3 jobs just to keep the lights on and some of us do ok but have to spend all the hours of our lives sitting in flourescent-lit cubes. What's the worst thing about your job? And please, add yours, because I only scratched the surface here. Vote... and ADD.
