is a very bad point to be at :(
quit that shit
what will i do for money etc? jobs are hard to come by.
I hear there's good money to be made at the docks.
anyway, your landlord cannot boot you out til your 2 months behind on the rent. that's 60 days to find a new job.
don't sweat it
...looking for a new job? This would help you realise that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
thanks this is all helpful :)
...could you borrow some money off your folks (not friends, that's often a whole can of worms) to tide you over? Embarrassing as that might be, it's better than getting this stressed over a job.
but i think if i'm going to quit etc and so forth, i should probably feel the burn of (temp) poverty so i can appreciate the salvation of a new job that much more
I contemplated getting run over outside so I didn't have to go to work for a few weeks, they would replace me and I could find a better job. I decided against it, and just went in early one morning, collected the shoes under my desk and walked out without saying a word to anyone.
they belonged to one of the sexy girls in the office, and to this day, I still enjoy 'looking' at them.
I left. Took ages to find a new job but totally worth it. Quit please.
and do something about it.
all this job is to me is rent. if i didn't have to worry about that i would fuck off.
I think I am transfering frustrations :D
I understand, seriously- I did it for a while, but just look for something else and see this as rent money, nothing else and know that it won't be forever. Okay? Good.
did you eventually get into something you were interested in?
On a slightly related topic, we had a work experience girl start today. She didn't come back after lunch. After ringing her a couple of times, she finally sent an email saying she was sorry, but felt really out of her comfort zone and hoped we didn't think she was a bitch. She seemed really mature and competent this morning.
People are strange.
Reckons she had a panic attack.
Which is a euphemism for Greeny's cock if ever I've heard one.
actually I would imagine my boss being hit by the car and not me.
However, what I did was give myself a realistic date to quit and then started looking for a job. I promised myself that even if I didn't have a new job by then, I would quit anyway. It wasn't worth my happiness to be that miserable in a job.
this is quality advice + information
At the stage where I wake up with a sense of dread every morning, and it looks as though they are taking my job away and making me do something that's a step back 10 years and something I don't want to do. Not been a good day :(. Going to fight all the way though!
There is always a danger of being trapped forever. I was lucky because my shit job coincided with realising most of my friends were twats, so although I had a living hell, it was a living hell that I got paid for with minimal operating (IE socialising) losses. So I set a time to quit, agonised for 2 months but with the light at the end of the tunnel knowing none of what I did mattered. Then I left the job, four weeks later, left the city, and then four weeks after that, left the country. And I've never regretted any of it or thought I was anything other than fortunate to be able to do this.
I realise not everyone has this option, so my advice might be; is it the job you hate, or the workplace. If it's just the workplace and the work isn't bad, then there must be somewhere you can go where the work is similar to what you do (should be easy to get the job) and you can use a lot of 'my kind of workmate' guff at the interview to sell your human interaction skills.
Or just quit. There are few feelings as awesome as the 5 seconds after you've handed in your notice for a shit job, and before your boss looks at you like you've run over his cat.
It really, really is.
Especially if you know that they've been taking the piss.
When quitting any post, remember to sabotage any processes you have been involved with and steal as much as possible in the lead up to your final day in work.
If you have to work a notice period, slack off as much as possible, it's not as if they can sack you.
Actually love it.
Affecting everything in my life.
that paulo was a cunt anyway, you deserve much better.
The first time getting your heart torn out and ripped apart and trodden on by a man is always the hardest.
Best thing to do is;
a) stripe that cunt so no one else will want him
b) anonymously phone the police and say he's a paedo or drug dealer
c) fuck all his friends and his friends boyfriends
d) phone his parents and out him
In this way, you will be able to move on with your life and find that one real true love, that one person who will respect you and treat you well, the way you deserve to be treated.
And if they fuck you over, just repeat steps a-d as necessary.
I quit it and got an easier and far better paid job.
No, this was a different one. It was in Dorchester too, I'm still not sure what i was thinking
