These things I will not miss about working for a living:

Grocery shopping (indeed, any shopping) only on weekends, evenings, and lunch hours, when the rest of the population is ALSO in the store.

Having to be polite to "negative people," aka ***holes, because they have some form of career power over me.

Having to spend any time at all with the aforementioned "negative people."

Big, high-level, short-sighted corporate decisions that are collossally stupid, affect my life and my work in a negative way, and are almost always completely reversed within 6 months, after 95% of the work has been done. If I'm going to waste my time, I want to waste it over my own stupid decisions, not somebody else's.

Having the high point of the day being the moment I realize that at least I'm getting paid for putting up with this garbage.
