Would you rather have a job you hate with a really high salary or have a job you love with a below-average salary? :thinking:

  • A job that I hate!
  • Below-average! I want to have fun
  • Idk, I don’t enjoy working at all

I sure could use a high salary job right now (even if I hate it), would love to buy the dip for the coming few years! :sweat_smile:


well done Fergus!!! Last GIF kills me :rofl:


High salary I’d say. It doesn’t say you can’t quite eventually and go work at the “below-average” place :wink:


or even better, quit eventually and go on early retirement! :wink:
