TESTEMONAIL:  Right and Discordianism allows room for personal interpretation. You have your theories and I have mine. Unlike Christianity, Discordia allows room for ideas and opinions, and mine is well-informed and based on ancient philosophy and theology, so, my neo-Discordian friends, open your minds to my interpretation and I will open my mind to yours. That's fair enough, right? Just claiming to be discordian should mean that your mind is open and willing to learn and share ideas. You guys are fucking bashing me and your laughing at my theologies and my friends know what's up and are laughing at you and honestly this is my last shot at putting a label on my belief structure and your making me lose all hope of ever finding a ideological group I can relate to because you don't even know what the fuck I'm talking about and everything I have said is based on the founding principals of real Discordianism. Expand your mind.

...and now I can't seem to find the thread it was in. So now I have to start a new thread and I really didn't want to but I really wanted opinions.

*inhaaaaaaaaaale* that was a long sentence

So there's an opening for a training coach at work.
I'll keep my base pay but lose most of my incentive pay which is kind of like a commission and sometimes a considerable amount of money.

Pros-
-- getting off my damn machine and letting some of my back and shoulder problems heal
-- having more "management" experience on my resume
-- the possibility of a greater chance for relocation when they phase us out next year
-- getting to move around, teach people stuff and learn something new
-- GETTING OFF MY MACHINE
-- a sense of purpose

Cons-
-- less pay


Do I sacrifice money for happiness?

I'm sorry, but do you even HAVE to ask that?

We're DISCORDIANS. If you don't know what our answer to that will be, either I need to stop generalizing and presuming, or you're pretty dense.

That was in Apple Talk Bodega, and it was pretty much 100% "yes" from those who answered.

I say it's absolutely worth a pay cut. One can always adapt to a lower income.

You could reorganize your finances.  Adopt some lifestyle changes...you'll already be making changes, the rest of them should just come along for the ride, right?

More or less sad than to keep at a job that stresses you out and causes you physical pain? That stuff adds up quicker and lasts longer than money.

IMO, mental and physical health almost always outweighs money.

yeah true.

i just don't want to have to cut out too much of the little things that make me happy.
like my horrible addiction to this stuff every other weekend or so--

I say do it to save your back alone.  Like was said above, you can adapt to less money.  You only get one back.

Studies show that more money does not mean more happiness.

This is science, do not argue.  :)

BADGE OF HONOR

The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

Dunno, but it probably got shit-canned, Faust killed a bunch of older threads just recently.
