Is it OK to quit a job, is any job a good job? What ever happened to suitable employment? What ever happened to 80 %?

It gauls me that I continue to see the same contractor, looking to hire an estimator/project manager, when I quit him because he was a jerk. And of coarse the money factored in too. He is offering more money now, does that mean it's ok to treat your employees like mushrooms?

It makes me mad as hell, you can't quit a job, you have to starve to prove a point. I'm getting better physically all the time, I did have a devistating injury, and I'll strive to get back to 5-minutes before I fell off the bridge.

Every phone call, e-mail, job interview comes off like a sting to prove I'm not looking for work. I put out about 10 contacts a day, I don't like to use the telephone, or go in person, because I know the reaction I'll get before I get there, need more experience, more schooling, your a dirt bag that's trying to take advantage of the system.

I lost more earning potential than most, and I enjoyed my work more than most, I'd like to get back the same kind of satisfaction, I had 5-minutes before I fell off the bridge.

Some of my job search, my computer got a virus, so I lost a lot, I had about 970 different contacts, a stack of coverletters about 5-1/2 inches high, over 100 different letters of thanks but no thanks. I do have some of this on disk, but am affraid to open them.
