Yea that, I would be, I was laid off from my last job after having it for just over 3 years, it was a tough job, I worked many nights, weekends etc. without pay(salary job), when it got to be too much all I had to do was think about what it was like to be unemployed and looking for work, that would instantly cure any thoughts of quitting, I was an operations manager managing a team that performed maintenance/upkeep/upgrades on PBX's(inhouse telecom equipment), about 225 sites in all spread out from the Mexican border to WA state and Colorado to the west coast, plus Hawaii, customers were mostly hotel's, hospitals, state/govt agencies etc.,
My wife says 3 years at that job aged me at least 10 years, I think she is right, it ran me into the ground on a regular basis, mentally and physically, but would I still be glad to have it? of course, I have no sympathy for anyone that has a job but refuses to do it unless their demands are met, they must have never been unemployed in the last 10 years, if that's the case, a very rude awakening is in store,
That's when the 20/20 hindsight will kick in, which is always too late,
