Do you miss your 9-to-5 job?

Don't you just love it when you hang out with your Nine-to-Fiver friends for the first time in weeks (or months!) because you've been working like a dog, and they throw complaints your way about their job that make you scoff, chuckle or flat out slap them across the face?  With the help of our Facebook friends, we have compiled a short list of the worst Nine-to-Fiver complaints that make all of us realize that they just couldn't hack in production.  

1) Ugh, I had to wake up at 7 a.m. this morning for a meeting!

In the end, don't we all feel a little sorry for our Nine-to-Fiver friends?  They don't get to see the amazing things we do, meet the crew we get to work with, have as much fun as we do, or be as creative as we can be!  We may have instability at times, and our relationships may be hanging by a thread, but we are just too creative to do the Nine-to-Five thing.


Do what you love! We do.
