No. of Recommendations: 1
There are two things I dislike about working. They are:

-the stress of performance anxiety
-the fact that I spend my time working towards "other people's goals."

I don't remember a lot about performance anxiety because I did the best I could, and that was what I could do. So why worry?

But other people's goals - that could be very annoying. Sometimes I'd get stuck on projects that were just plain wrong. It was the government throwing money at a problem. Example: should the FBI and the DEA have radios that are compatible with each other. Duh! What a waste. On the otherhand, I did get to see an undercover operation - that was neat. But not worth tax dollars.

And by the way - thank you to all you taxpayers that partially funded my retirement.
