ignored by boss - dream analysis

This dream had a simple message - a dream where she was not enjoying her job reflected her dislike of her new job.

THE DREAM - I got a new job as an overnight security guard at a homeless shelter. I had my uniform on and was working the 8:oo pm to 5:00am shift. I was uncomfortable being there and surrounded by dirty homeless people. I was counting down the minutes until I could leave. My old boss from old job walked in and ignored me. I chased him as he walked out of the shelter and I asked him why he was ignoring me. He stared crying and said that his wife wanted to leave him and that they were going on a break. I told him I was sorry and we sat on a bench for a while.

GUESSWORK The previous day the dreamer met an old friend and they talked a lot about career choices. The dreamer is 3 months into a new job that she doesn't really like.
