Work and fun don't mix, unless you're a clown.
But in seriousness, every job is going to have its pros and cons. I am currently highly conflicted about my job.
I make mighty good money and I barely do anything on my shifts but it comes at a price. I work overseas and I haven't had the chance to see my family in almost two years. This is partly because of Covid and the other part is due to the fact that my company changed ownership and screwed up our visa process. I am now stuck here until that is fixed, and they seem to be in ZERO hurry.
If I quit this job, I will be losing at the very least $20K a year in a paycut working stateside. Then I will have to find an apartment and get a vehicle, added costs that I don't have here. All this while I am footing the bill for all expenses for a (estranged) wife and three children.
I am about to have to spend the bulk of my savings to fly them out here for a one week visit, something I would never, ever, consider doing due to the cost and the amount of money I currently have saved or in credit lines.
The good news is, I have completely cleared the 30K of debt I was in around December. The loans are all paid off and the credit card balances are at less than $50 total. One of my asshole cards took me down from $4000 to $1000 after I paid it off so I have made sure to keep small balances on each and pay them down to $5 or so.
Anyways, I absolutely hate that I am looking into a nuclear option to see them based on something that I cannot control. No one should have to spend so much money out of desperation to see their family.
