I just got 3 days work stuffing envelopes. I have to stuff over 1000 envelopes. On a scale of 1-10, how much am I going to want to blow my brains out by Friday?

Whats the most boring job you've had to do?

Ugh, TQC, can I talk to you about my job/life woes and maybe you'll give me helpful advice?

So, I work at a restaurant right now. I love my restaurant. I love my coworkers and boss and the food we serve, but we're not doing very well at all and unless things pick up dramatically we'll probably be out of business/the business will change hands by the end of the summer at latest. I'm trying to figure out if I should jump ship, and part of me really wants to because money, but a lot of me wants to stay until the bitter end because I'm loyal like that.

At the same time, I'm planning on moving in with my SO in the next six to eight weeks. He works at a company that's doing pretty well and he loves his job, but it's about an hour away from my restaurant, and the town we're planning on moving to, Danbury, is about 45 minutes away from the restaurant (and my current home). I also don't drive (right now - I have my driving test on Thursday and really hope I rock it out so I can drive) so getting up to Danbury for work would be dependent on my SO, who drives through Danbury on his way to work every day. So I could conceivably work lunch service should a restaurant hire me (there would just be a lot of waiting around since a lunch service generally runs from like 10:30 to 4 and my SO works 9-5). Then, once we move up there and I acquire a car, I could shift onto working dinners as well.

Good plan? Bad plan? Feedback in general?

How do you handle rude/bad/noisy neighbors?

I'm not really asking for advice. In the two years I've lived in my place, this is the first time I've had not great neighbors. I'm moving out in about two months and I'm gone most of the day, so I just angry facebook-status about it and make mean faces in their general direction, whatever. Their worst offense is smoking flavored cigars outside my windows- lame because it is definitely windows-open weather here, because I'm asthmatic, and because they smell like shit and grapes. They play very loud music and sometimes, for no discernible reason, they will go outside, clap loudly several times, and go back in. Anyway.

How do you/would you react to bad neighbors? Do you have any good bad neighbors stories?
