Basically I get punished for anything I do to get ahead or make my job easier/more efficient (I have a white collar office job for a big insurance company).
>work hard as soon as I start to get my day's work done in the first hour or two so I can slack off the rest of the day
>end up getting a bunch more bullshit dumped on me, and it's usually urgent stuff other people couldn't handle in time so it has to be done immediately instead of putting it off until tomorrow
>adjust by doing fucking nothing until I have a couple hours left in my shift and then I power through everything because it's too late in the day to be reassigned more work by the time I get done
They're getting the same productivity out of me no matter whether I do it at the beginning of my shift or the end. In addition to being preferable to me it would also be better from a business standpoint to do my work in the morning instead of the afternoon, but since I get punished for doing work early fuck it I'll wait until later in the day. They use days, not hours, to measure how quickly we get our work done so something finished at 9 AM or 4 PM looks exactly the same when management is determining how good of a wagie I am. But doing it at 4 means no more work ends arrives at anon's inbox while doing it at 9 means I have to take over for Bob Boomer who can't figure out how our remote work proxy functions and won't get anything done today.

I deeply relate to that rant from Office Space about how I don't give a fuck if Initech sells a few more units because it doesn't show up anywhere in my paycheck and my only motivation is to do just enough to keep management off my ass, which I have down to an art. Working hard gets you nowhere in my company. If hard work was rewarded with bonuses and promotions I'd bust my ass, but since it isn't I'm content to slack off and half ass my way through every single day.

Wagie manager here. I figured it out. Negotiate a four day work week. Four days is enough to get any kind of work done. Also, detach 100% emotionally from your work and just see it as a trivial side thing you do while you do your main thing on the other three days. Also, take full advantage of all the benefits. Always eat at work and shit in their toilet. Be an ass to management and be kind to your staff. Be demanding. Know your worth. Keep in mind that the only reason you are working is so that you can take your paycheck and pump the next shit coin.

I do administrative customs clearance for a major package delivery company. Most of the work is very repetitive, training has been poor so far and our managers have unironically had public fights with each other. The only reason I'm staying is because it took me three months to find a job after graduating from university college, and the pay is pretty good. My plan for now is just to keep my head down and spend my free time trading crypto and perhaps pursuing a master's degree a couple of months down the road.

When I had a job I truly hated, it was because I worked with another programmer that was completely incompetent technically, but would get away with it with constant political machinations and generally being a sociopath. The final straw was when he started going in after I merged something and would merge a bunch of things on top to break it, then lie and say what I did was broken. He’d also steal things out of my branches that were in progress, commit them into his own branch, merge it and try to pass it off as his work. It was just too much energy dealing with someone that insane, and long-term I knew it would hurt my career because he was much better at politics than I was.

I don't hate my job. I don't do some officefag make-work bullshit.

The problem is my job field has been getting systematically cucked over the past few years due to diploma mills pumping out fucktons of unqualified grads riddled with debt and desperate for a job. This has been depressing wages. Nobody gets raises in years. New hires are paid less and less. Employees who have been with the company for years get laid off or otherwise pushed out in order to hire newfags for significantly cheaper. Workload continues to increase with bullshit expectations for no additional reward. Lower profit margins in the business for various reasons, corporate faggots giving you the squeeze, and so on.

It's not secure anymore. At any moment I could be let go, and then I'd be fucked if not for crypto. My goal is to become 100% financially independent. Ideally not having to wagecuck ever again. But at the very least to reaching a point where all money made is icing on the cake.
