I only wish I could've said "i quit" with more oomph. Maybe an F word. Or like, knocked the papers off the table. but yeah. No more toxic people. Just unemployment. Sigh.

Shit.
Who/How many did you piss off?
more like, how many people pissed me off.

Oh! Juicy drama! I wanna hear all about it.
Details, girlfriend!
So i accepted a new position at the company. They have changed the technicalities of my responsibilities and duties every single week in the entire 12 weeks I've been in the position. then they finally said "ok here's the final change" and it was something outrageously different than what I signed up for, and basically a job a monkey could do. So I said "Awesome. I quit. Hire a monkey"
Your going to loose your mind with boredom.
Better find something to do, quickly.

Brava, @Khys. I'm proud of you for standing up for your value. But uh, what happens now? You buying ramen by the case?
i've already applied a few places, and i have some good contacts.

At the basement needs cleaning, and we need to finish tiling the bathroom, so i'll be good for a week or two

i think I might go back to bartending for a while. The money isn't bad, and it activates my Se. Maybe it'll be a bit of excitement after 3 years of boredom.
I find that when I'm miserable at work, my home life suffers for it. Now that I love my job, I'm happy in general. Find something you enjoy! It will probably improve everything else.

Good on ya!
Been there, done that. You needed this. You were getting bored. Unemployment sucks yeah, but that's the time to reflect on what is better for you than what you had previously. I'm no psychic but I predict your life is going to be much better suited to who you are in the next "chapter". :D
I laughed when I saw the comment about the monkey comment since the exact words "good, go hire a monkey!" came out of my mouth today too. But I have to echo the comments about enjoying your work. There have been observed mental and biological benefits of leaving a job you utterly hate. Bravo on the manner you did it in!
First day of unemployment - woke up at 5:30am. I suck at this.
You had an office job, right? That is death to an ISTP.
I had one when I was younger and I simply stopped showing up.
Variety and autonomy are the key to work place happiness, something an office job doesn't provide.

I congratulate you, Khys, for throwing off its shackles.

I was an employment specialist. I sat at a desk and made phone calls, did business to business sales, and student job counseling services.

People people people sales non stop interaction and sedentary work environment.

Then they wanted to eliminate all internship placement responsibilities and bonuses from the position and make it purely a "get the signature on the contract and hand it off" job. So sales. Period. For less money.

Anyone here ever try hiking trail maintenance? It involves a lot of backpacking around national parks with a saw...
