    I'd choose the tedious job hands down. I can't handle emotionally toxic environments, but I can tolerate tediousness -- I've been a housewife for the better part of 18 years, after all.

    Frankly, a dependable job in a pleasant environment with ten years worth of guaranteed job security sounds pretty darn nice to me. I'm going to want exactly that in about five years.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I had a job 2 years ago that was interesting work at a negative place. I lasted about 6 months, and I was REALLY excited about the work when I started.

    So, I guess I'm going to have to go with tedious job at a positive place since I know the other one doesn't work for me.

    i worked at a seemingly positive workplace, but it was quite negative
    big egos, endless under-the-table-jerking-off sessions in meetings.
    the work was i guess 'interesting' never the same day once.

    but i take it with a grain of salt, more challenges faced, more
    managerial mistakes witnessed---i think it's all good learning.
    i've learned the most in shitty companies with shittier bosses
    and colleagues. i'm so easily amused by nature, happy happy
    can make me complacent...
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    The job I have now seems to be becoming more of a negative environment, because many people who have worked there say 2 months ago want to quit already because the job has become so ridiculously demanding for such little pay, and the punishments are a little ridiculous too. I got written up yesterday because I sent a kid with water shoes on down the slide and I didn't notice. Hey, the other water park doesn't give a damn if you wear shoes or not, so why are you putting me closer to suspension for it?

    Sorry, just a rant. It's become negative and demanding...I guess I had a less demanding job but still a negative environment for the most part (what else do you expect at McDonald's?)

    Need to find a new job.
