Not really. I liked school because I love learning and my social skills were always decent. At work, I wouldn't say it was an issue necessarily, but one of my first full-time jobs after college rubbed me the wrong way. The majority of the work was seasonal, so the busy time of year lasted a few months and then it was completely dead. I hated the dead months. My mind was too active and I became really irritable. If I hadn't moved on to another job I probably would have created problems because I was so unhappy.
Guess I'm alone here? Story of my life haha.
Now I didn't mean behavioural problems as in needing a padded room and/or heavy meds (although looking back....)
I was actually a quiet and happy go lucky (younger) child until about age 10. Then something inside me snapped and by the end of high school, I had wracked up quite a number of suspensions for various offences and seriously did not give a fuck what anyone thought of my actions. I think the only reason I was never expelled was because my grades were always top. I was always on the honour roll but scoffed at it. In my mind that achievement was reserved for brown nosers and ass kissers (what a shit I must have been). I no longer (mostly) hold that opinion. I love to learn but couldn't stand most of my peers. I planned how to get out of high school and into university by age 17 just because I didn't want to go to kiddie school anymore. Here I felt more freedom and less undermining authority.
At work, I cannot be managed by someone I perceive as less knowledgeable and experienced. It's very difficult for me to hold back and that could be death in the corporate world. I am certain that I was constructively dismissed (while on mat leave) from my last employer because of insubordination.
Of course I will acquiesce to a manager I believe has the ability to lead. I am not a total maniac. I just can't handle incompetence and/or malice. I've decided to turn over a new leaf and be less outspoken with my new employer. Wish me luck haha.
Unicorn Attack, congrats on the move. Put those thoughts into action in order to kill boredom at work. Some of my best successes with projects were the result of having nothing to do prior to envisioning what I could be doing with my time. It stimulates the mind at the very least. If it makes money, even better!
