    Let's hope your boss doesn't see you reading this.

    1. Suddenly there comes a day where all signs seem to point toward quitting your job.

    2. You’ve mentally calculated the exact number of minutes you’ll have to sit through every day.

    Once you take out breaks, eating, and blinking, it's really only about an hour...

    3. You daily compose your "I QUIT!" speech in your head to calm yourself down.

    You even have the hand gestures planned out — one finger in particular.

    4. You’re irrationally angry at everything while at work.

    7. You just smile when your boss yells at you now.

    Nothing you say hurts me. Nothing can hurt me. I’m untouchable.

    8. You try to calculate if the money you're making really matters.

    9. Your new catchphrase is, “If they don’t like it, then they can just fire me!”

    They don't even ask how your day was anymore. They know: It's always bad.

    11. You will do anything that gets you out of the office, even if just for a few minutes.

    You're always the one up for a coffee run. Your ten-minute breaks have stretched to more like 30.

    12. You’ve lost all will to be exceptional.

    They should be happy you even showed up today, tbh.

    You and your BWF (best work friend) often do it behind their back during meetings.

    15. You know the Craigslist jobs posting page like a personal diary.

    16. You're passing your resumé out like a flyer.
