Yall are a bunch of wankers!

Are you guys tired of my posts?

I seem to be offending some people with my posts about my experiences.  I will stop if you would like.  Thought you at least would get some entertainment value out of it even if you do not have advice to give or your own experiences to share. 

There used to be many posts here and on JOS by people who would share their experiences and discuss their dysfunctional work environment and that rarely happens anymore.

Is there anyone left here that still works for a living or do you all have jobs you are happy with?  I have noticed that very few will post about your own experiences....and apparently more than a few people have left this forum.

No, keep posting. However, can you throw in a few discussion about retirement and stock trading? Some financial topics would be fun like how to make money selling Amway.

I'm OK with my job. Am I supper happy? No. There are days that I want to do something else. Is the money OK? It's decent enough comparing to the average career fields out there.

Are my bosses bad? No. I work for a mom & pop business. It isn't too bad. However, there will be more turbulent in the near future. Am I going to go find another job? No. My future job would be working from home or I won't take it. Anything else you want to ask?

I'm currently testing such a systematic strategy on my Interactive Brokers paper trading account. If the auto-trading engine fires, I'm manually verifying the order to figure out if it makes sense, then shut down Trader Workstation in paper trading mode, restart it in live mode after passing login verification challenge, open the options blotter, manually select the options forming the strategy and press send order.

Not exactly high frequency. And I've noticed even the auto trading engine oftentimes fails to get the executions since the market has already moved since the marketdata looked allright to trigger.

So I may have to look into the latency issue. Perhaps install it on an US server, but with Interactive Brokers that's problematic since they don't really have a server side app. It's a GUI client that is restarted daily and needs manual login afterwards.

Nah
Although the grass may not be greener for you elsewhere.

I've had many jobs in software and they all have some level of BS you need to deal with. Honestly, I think this BS is just the cost of human interaction and communication overhead.

Your posts are super annoying, but if you stopped posting I would miss you a lot. You asking for advice and Bored saying you're a pussy and you saying he's mean is a highlight of my week.

So I vote stay.

I go back and forth from being semi-content to wanting to GTFO. 

> Are my bosses bad? No. I work for a mom & pop business. It isn't too bad. However, there will be more turbulent in the near future. Am I going to go find another job? No. My future job would be working from home or I won't take it. Anything else you want to ask?

Working for home would be ideal.

Ever work for a toxic boss or in a dysfunctional work environment?

LOL

Although I do sense some hostility from certain posters, maybe I bring back bad memories from people who have dealt with the same type of shit.

Don't think that hasn't crossed my mind that I'd be moving from one shithole to another.

My options are to:

- Torpedo my personal life and move to another city to try and find a better job 

- Take on a crushing commute in order to work for another company

- Continue on at the current place and wait for things to get better again. 

Not really good options, just different kinds of bad.

LOL, glad you at least get some entertainment value out of it.  As for Bored, I always liked reading the guy's rants about the industry but he seems hate me for whatever reason.  Maybe he doesn't like to be reminded of all of that dysfunctional bullshit since he has had to deal with his share of it.

I never ask for advice at work btw.

You moron, Bored is your friend not your enemy.

Friends are real with you. Enemies will lie to your face to gain your trust.

Most everyone here is your enemy.

I got no beef with Bored.  I appreciate his insight.

> Friends are real with you. Enemies will lie to your face to gain your trust.

So the people that smile at you at work are not always your friends?  j/k

> Most everyone here is your enemy.

Most of the people here seem pretty cool.  Seems that things are slowing down here though. :(

> Me and Bored though, we are real with your dumb ass.

I am a dumb ass and you create a new thread about me calling me an idiot under a different username?  Are you not the guy that used to call yourself idiot? :)

Yeah I'm not that guy. I've never used random names or changed alts to insult people. I use my nick RC here almost exclusively. The exceptions are when I post as "Citation Bot" to include a link without comment to something someone referenced without citing. However I am not the only person to provide Citation Bot services, nor was I the first. It's just a board tradition a lot of people participate in.
