>had to serve a customer myself because noone else was available
>massively fucked up their order because I couldn't hear them and they couldn't hear me (covid shield and mask)
>dropped their order
they were a couple from abroad if you read this I'm sorry but fuck you also kinda ;___;
This one time I worked at a tiny furniture outlet. I was homeless at the time, living out of my car because of stalking. It's a lot to explain. My boss took me to lunch and then took me to a really fancy hotel. He literally booked a suite and took me up there alone and I told him to fuck off. Lol e_e
Oh yes and soon afterwards I was fired. I'm fine now though.
how'd you get fired out if interest, also holy shit creepy ass boss
He also showed me how to fire a gun in the showroom. He was a russian guy. Really thick accent and… just fun as hell guy lmao. He fired me after the incident. My mom finally agreed to help me afterwards lol, I'm back on my feet now.

you cannot just drop this and not elaborate, holy fuck
I can't relax on days I don't work because I just dread going back to work.
>have a love-hate relationship with my job
>work long hours but get lots of time off and make enough to live comfortably
>too physically and mentally exhausted to do anything productive with my time off
>coworkers are awesome but they hate the job too
>want to transfer soon but afraid my supervisor will deny it, forcing me to stay or quit
>can’t find a therapist taking new clients with my work’s health insurance
But doesn't that stellar income completely overide all of your life problems? I was told in college your career would be your main source of happiness!?!
While it's nice to be financially independent and not worry too much about finances, my job takes a huge physical and mental toll on me. The con about having disposable income and no one to hold me accountable is a succumb to my vices on too many occasions. Therapy helped but I had stopped seeing my therapist when I relapsed because of shame and now I can't find a new one. I know I'd be happier if I switched specialties but fat chance of that happening with covid right now.
Honestly, sometimes I miss my old job as a barista. I made fraction of the amount I make now, but it was an inconsequential job and the tasks were monotonous but kept me busy without being stressed.
Nurse? I'm in RN School now because I applied before the pandemic, but the healthcare system is so fucked up now that I'm not sure if I want to continue.
I love my current job, but it's minimum wage and I want to support myself
Anon I think she's being sarcastic. It's pretty obvious to any rational person that income doesn't override any mental or physical tools that the job takes on you, or anything outside of it.
I should go to sleep but the sooner I sleep the sooner I have to work
This is the thought process I have
Have any of you done audio transcription? I am good at typing, spelling and grammar.
2/2 to clarify I'm wondering if I should do it, since I hate my current job which requires me to get dressed and leave my blanket fort, exposing myself to harmful daylight (solar radiation)
My work is changing a large portion of my job because they're buying a program that will automate the largest and most time-consuming task that we do, so they're replacing that by giving us tasks that are currently done by another department to lighten their load. However, the task they're automating was one I was super fast and efficient at, so while it took everyone else on my team ~4 hours a day, I was done in 1. Now I'm sad that I might actually gonna have to do work during my workday. Sucks.
When I got hired I thought my boss was gay (he's in a relationship with a man who also works here, it's an open secret in our company) but now I found out that both him and his partner are bisexual. The two have been weirdly friendly towards me and I've even caught both of them checking me out before but I dismissed it as my paranoid imagination. Now I'm pretty sure it was real and they're actually attracted to me. They're not a bad looking couple, but they're both in their mid 40s while I'm 23. I've only been here for a few months and I don't dislike the work I'm doing, but this makes me want to quit so it doesn't escalate.
I want the restaurant I work at to ban Uber Eats and similar apps forever. They clog up the system and our store can't handle having constant huge orders during rushes.
I feel for you.
food service must be absolute hell, especially with online orders now.
I work at a pharmacy chain (like cvs), and it's so much less stressful than a restaurant.
Are the tips at your job that good to keep you staying?
>left NEETdom not long ago
>work 6 days a week
>wake up at 5 in the morning
>have to take public transport because I don't have a car yet (obviously)
Maybe NEETs are right. Becoming a wagie was a big fucking mistake.
Biggest brain move isn't being a wagie, it's being your own boss.
FYI the car market is completely fucked right now due to shipping disruptions caused by covid and chip shortages used in car electrical systems. Used and new car prices are through the roof.
To be your own boss, you need smarts or talents. But I will always be just another cog in the machine. By the way, I came home an hour ago and now I'm going to play vidya for 6 hours straight until it's time to go to bed again. And wake up again. And go to work again. Shit.>>72008
Thanks for letting me know!
>have to transcribe patient charts that look like they were photographed by a daguerreotype camera
>doctors' handwriting looks like hieroglyphics at times
>have to make daily presentations for all the admissions for the past 24h
>residents and post-graduate interns fill out charts incorrectly or incompletely
>60/M with heart failure somehow doesn't have bipedal edema
>43/F with a 4x4 cm thyroid mass on ultrasound somehow doesn't have a palpable or visible neck mass according to the chart
>get yelled at by chief resident during conference next morning for not knowing the patient's physical examination findings despite me literally never having step foot in the hospital because COVID is cockblocking my med school
Why is my dad even paying so much for my tuition?
I don’t get the joke, what is Activision and what does this have to do with Iron Man?
I'm a freelancer and I'm tired of it. I always feel anxious because I don't know if I'll make enough money and I hate having to talk with stupid clients all the time who pretend to know something about what I do. I always need to explain everything like I'm talking with a kid for them to understand.
God, why nobody told me that being a freelancer wasn't as magical as just working from home.
My job is basically my entire social life as of current and it shames me to admit it
From my 7 years in the workforce this seems to be the norm for most adults I've met, especially the older ones.
I'm fully remote so it's even worse. Today I spent time talking to my supervisor about an IRL not work issue I was freaking out about even though she doesn't really "know" me well and it felt kind of embarassing, but she was sweet about it and was asking me to update her and everything.
One of my current coworkers will go out of her way to call and talk on the phone more sometimes and I can tell that's when she's feeling lonely. She's older and lives alone and doesn't have family around so I try to be really social with her
