But not everyone agreed with Anita’s perspective. It seems that some people enjoy working hard at their 9-to-5.

“I want a lazy girl job but I know my adhd brain will go insane,” wrote one person.

“I got the lazy girl job but I’m crying in the inside because I’m a LEO & working hard is what I love to do,” another person said, cautioning people against jobs that don’t challenge them.
