I happen to enjoy what i do, altho i don't fear the day i happen to lose my job (however unlikely that actually is...), i can always do something else like teach or research... money is not the beginning or end of anything.
Well, I guess I ought to count my blessings. I'm in one of those "very stable" civil service jobs, but sometimes I fear being stuck in a dead-end job, forever doomed to mediocrity. And I have no talent to do anything else, so jumping ship would not be an option even if I wanted to.
Sorry. Bad day. Just kena shelled by boss lah, that's why.
