Basically these are my 2 options for a new job, after I quit my last job because the company is going down the pan.

Option 1 - they work ar least 11 hours a day there and it's terribly far away from home + the environment is very stressful

Option 2 - I'd have to turn a blind eye to all sorts of unethical and against-my-principles behaviour (and facilitate such behavior - i.e. manage a restaurant, but a 'hi-class' one where men come with their mistresses and wives are sending paparazzi to take pictures catching them in the act and I'd be supposed to cover s***t like this up) + I'd be on call 24/7 and basically, from what the employer said, 'never rest'.

Option 2 pays better than option 1.

I need to get a job fast, so waiting for option 3 is ... not an option.

I just wanted to vent. What do you guys think? I hate option 2, but option 1 doesn't cover my bills. On the other hand though, common sense tells me that if I throw myself in the mud (option 2) - pigs will eat me up I'm afraid.
