I work as a software engineer. I hate my job. No, it’s not because of my boss and no it’s not because the pay is not good. It is not because of the many reasons why most people hate their job. I hate my job because it makes me fat.
Do not laugh. This is a serious problem for me. My job is a prison whose sole purpose is to make me morbidly fat.
Now, when I say that I hate my job, I do not mean that everything about my job is bad. Actually, many of the things in my job are quite good and that is why I cannot contemplate leaving my job. Number one, I love being a software engineer and I am very good at it. Since I am very good, I also get a very good salary. But as I will explain, this tends to work against me.
Since I am very good in my job, I have risen to a managerial position. In my kind of work, being a manager means that you do not have to do much of the donkey work. I only deal with the escalated tough issues which I deal with quite fast since as I said… I am quite good at my job. But again this works against me.
The biggest blow that my employment deals me however is the company cafeteria that is situated on the lower floor right below my office. The cafeteria is notorious for frying very aromatic foods and baking pastries whose sweet tantalizing scent is pure torture for me upstairs.
Being that I am often not very busy and my mind is thus not always fully engaged in my work, I often find myself envisaging myself munching on the delicacies below. When this happens, my whole body acts up against me. My belly rumbles like a famished elephant and my mouth salivates endlessly. At such times, I cannot focus my mind on anything else but the food cooking below. Eventually I have to order.
The cafeteria has excellent cooks who cook excellent food. Subsequently, their prices are also quite pricey. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have a job that pays me very well and the prices are affordable. For a manager such as myself, ordering for anything from the cafeteria only requires a phone call and the food is delivered right to my office. I do not have to even leave my office!
This is why I hate my job. No matter how much I would want to have a trim body, my working environment is always working against me. I have tried taking all kinds of recommended solutions to help me with my weight gain to no avail. I have tried taking white tea instead of coffee but still my intake of loads of bad calories could not be subdued.
I have tried taking food supplements that help in weight loss by diminishing appetite, but I guess my appetite defies all odds. Exercising is something that I hate and would want to avoid at all costs but I guess I have to succumb and join a gym. Or maybe I need to another job elsewhere.
