HATE your job? But leaving would involve making minimal effort? Here are five reasons it’s easier to stick it out:
You’ve got holiday left to use up
There’s been no good reason to use your annual leave this year, it’s carried over to next year, you’re not sure if you’re still entitled to it if you resign, and finding out would involve asking someone. It’s fine, you can just quit after you’ve done three weeks in Magaluf.
The commute is fine
If it takes you less than an hour to get to your shithole of an office, why bother getting another better job that you enjoy more and pays you more when it could mean an extra 15 minutes on the bus? That’s surely tipping the work-life balance the wrong way.
Vaguely get on with two co-workers
It doesn’t quite reach the level of banter, but there are two co-workers at your place who relations with are cordial to say the least. Sure, you hate everyone else and they hate you, but what if there aren’t even those two at the new job? Could happen.
Close to Pret
When you have a good relationship with your barista, why ruin it? What if the Pret at the new job is 80 yards further away, is a strange L-shape, and you don’t have the same rapport? Take that rapport into account and use it as a reason for staying put.
Can’t be arsed to change your email signature
Changing email signatures take time and effort. You might even have to Google how to do it. So even if your job is categorically shite, why would you want to take that time when you’ve got it just the way you like it? Best stay where you are.
You’ve essentially given up
Let’s be honest – any other job will be equally bollocks because that’s jobs, and will no doubt require a f**kton of paperwork you just aren’t prepared to do. You might as well stick with it until you’re fired.
