Every day, I come to the office. I’m required to — but there’s no reason for it. I commute several hours to get the office (each way), climb the stairs, sit at my desk, do my job, and talk to nobody. My work does not require me to interact with anybody at the office, nor would my work be improved if I did. I often retreat to a small room in the basement to get away from the noise.

But I’m required to be here. If I’m not, I get in trouble. If I don’t work when I’m sick, I get in trouble.

This is pointless, and it makes my life feel pointless.

  • Don’t stay somewhere that makes you miserable, I know because of the world we live in, were constantly required to make sacrifices, we go after things that will get us through, we live for the jobs, the money, we just try live. But sometimes we have to go after things that make us happy, and if it doesn’t work out then it’ll be alright, we go back to our miserable lives, but at least we tried.

  • Is there another job closer you can go too? I’d be looking for a new job in a heartbeat.. I was that way driving 2 hrs to work, and 4 hrs back home due to traffic feeling dead.. I decided to find a new job that actually was closer in a way but worth the drive.. I hope you can find a better job that treats you well!

  • Speak to HR about telecommuting.

  • If you go through an annual review it would be a great time to bring it up. Do some research on the benefits to the company for having you telecommute; maybe offer declining raises for six months or so as a trial to prove your work ethic won’t be affected. I’m lucky to have the option to work from home – my boss would agree that i get more done at home than in the office
