No Work/Life Balance
Prioritising work over wellbeing (SometimesConsistent)
Urgh I hate this so much. I’d say a good 20% of the people in my office have a flu at the moment, which I’ve so far managed to avoid. I walked into the kitchen the other morning to find one of the receptionists unloading all the mugs and crockery from the dishwasher whilst coughing and spluttering. I had to go have a word with one of the directors, along the lines of ” I can’t be the only one who has a problem with this!?” (timaaay)
Beyond Your Means
You see that car that you definitely can’t afford on your income? You should definitely get it (Afanadord)
I’ve been told I should just take that vacation because, “what are credit cards for?” (spicytacoo)
Overworking ourselves. The number of people I see at school bragging about how little they slept or how much work they have due the next day is incredibly worrying. (not_athletic)
It may be a great time to be alive, but that doesn’t mean Western civilization isn’t without problems. We should stop doing these bad, detrimental behaviors.
