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

Anonymous 65871

Oh yes and soon afterwards I was fired. I'm fine now though.

Anonymous 65872

how'd you get fired out if interest, also holy shit creepy ass boss

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!?!

Anonymous 65976

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

Anonymous 66071

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.

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)

Anonymous 66928

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.

Anonymous 67630

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?

Maybe NEETs are right. Becoming a wagie was a big fucking mistake.

Anonymous 71985

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.

Anonymous 72011

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.

Thanks for letting me know!

I don’t get the joke, what is Activision and what does this have to do with Iron Man?

Anonymous 72295

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

Anonymous 72356

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

There was an enormous amount of sexual harassment happening at a game development company called Activision and they got sued for it. Iron man is just a reaction image.

I work nights at a warehouse. The warehouse gets goods. Those goods are put in their marked spot. Selectors are given orders which guide them on what to put in their pallets. The pallets and made and put onto trucks. Its kinda interesting to see how it works, but its a very poor work environment. I sit in a little command station where I coordinate pallets and give the "selectors" there orders to fill out. Past HR, I'm the only women in the building at ant point, and HR is only there in the day. The job itself isn't too hard, just make sure the moids get their orders and don't put their pallets in the wrong spots. I have a big glass panel I interact with the selectors through, and I like to pretend I'm looking into a moid encloser at the zoo. Generally the are indifferent with a few nice ones who sya please and thank you, but some get angry at me because I don't give them easy jobs. It is all supposed to be random, so I can't do anyone favors. When they get to rough I get to call over the manager. If it didn't pay good I would have left months ago…

Anonymous 94857

Me too, and I don't talk with any of my coworkers outside of work.

Anonymous 94867

I feel your pain. I started my job during the pandemic when we were fully remote. Now we’re hybrid but everyone is in and out on different days so I haven’t got a chance to befriend any of them. Plus we all have separate offices. And obviously my social skills aren’t stellar to begin with. But unfortunately I only have one friend outside of work right now so I wish I could be better friends with my coworkers just so I’d have people to talk to. Maybe even commiserate over work stress together.

Anonymous 94871

I think I messed up big this time. I hope I don’t get fired or sued. And on top of that, I’m probably not going to get a reference from my boss. I’ll probably be blacklisted from the company at this point.

What happened??

Anonymous 94929

This will sound weird but I hate that I don't work all week. I have free weekends and I hate it. I thought having an income would allow me to enjoy more things, but it has been pointless because I have no friends or close relatives.
I've tried going out alone but I don't enjoy it at all, if anything it makes me feel worse.
Tried signing to some classes on the weekends to see if I could make some friends but I didn't achieve anything.
At least i feel appreciated at work. My coworkers are nice to me and I have my mind busy. Anywhere else I feel miserable.
Still, I know my coworkers aren't my friends, they make plans together and I'm never invited, so I know they see me just as a coworker and nothing more. But I won't complain about them because they are the first group of people that makes me feel appreciated since I was a preteen

Anonymous 95479

i hate remote work. I am the only person in my office who works in-person (because of my junior contract) and i fucking despise that my coworkers (as much as i like them) feel some sort of entitlement to me doing everything by myself in person all the goddamn time.

They are always on vacation or business trips or working from home. I bust my ass to get to work every goddamn day with a 13 mile, 1 and a half hour commute total back and forth and god forbid im slightly late to an appointment and they just take a different meeting and have to reschedule with me.

as soon as i get into graduate school I'm going back to my home country for a long needed break for at least a month (and hopefully find a moid to spend the rest of my life with in that time) before I start school again

Anonymous 95563

Why oh why did I get invited to an interview that I’m clearly not going to get the job in the end? I’m qualified on paper but there are many more qualified people vying for this job. Plus I have to do a test and I forgot everything since graduate school … I’m going to fail the test for sure.

Anonymous 96525

same. i think this applies to some of the other ladies in my work place, one of my older colleagues would call up everytime i asked her a simple question like "which address should i be putting for this order" which can be answered in basically 2 seconds on teams but instead she wants to call me up and have a 1/2 hr conversation :/ im now afraid of asking her questions.

id also like to speak more but i think my sense of humour is kind of different from theirs.

i just need friends who are aspie like me but dont show it but only a little bit and we laugh at the same stupid things. i tried bumble before but it's all dog and wine girls. i hate dogs.

Anonymous 96537


Just change companies then. You are clearly an exception because most people hate even the idea of ever going back to an office again.

>I bust my ass to get to work every goddamn day

Cool, no one cares. And no one would care even if you had your coworkers physically around while doing it, either.

>1 and a half hour commute total back and forth

Cool, so you like torturing yourself with needless commute. Well others don't. They're doing what's best for them and you have to do what's best for you.
