Many thanks for taking the time to reply in such detail.!
I note in the dream that I was with mainly women;-I had to deal with the snail. Why had they picked me, and as your say a "shitty job". However I realised that the snail was indeed plastic, not real.
My thoughts are that the snail represented something about me that these woman did not like. I had to change, get rid of some aspect say of my personality in order to be accepted.
The reality is I work in an office full of women who are simply rotten to each other, bitchiness etc. I loath this, back stabbing type of behaviour. I can't relate to them. I can't understand this sort of behaviour, more fool me!
So I'm thinking that maybe what is ugly and undesireable to them in the dream i.e. the snail, is not. Just a thought. I should say I'm female myself.
Thankfuly leaving this office tomorrow, really sad environment! I'll let them get on with it. Hopefully strange dreams will stop.
Lastly, I had a "premonition/dream" about this job and people, before I started job...
