I have a guilty conscious. I worked at a customer service center, and the department I worked in for a long time transferred to another customer service center, and had to leave the program three months ago. The location I worked, tried to put me in another department, but it wasn't a fit for me, so I left. I tried to work doing something else, but I am used to customer service. I applied to the location, where the department I worked at relocated. They called me right away. I told them immediately that I used to work at a program that relocated there. They were fine with that and put me back in that program. I am training in my program, that I have worked in for over two years. My class doesn't know it because I still have to be trained by the company's standards. I don't know if my trainer knows or not. One of the people who is directly from the program didn't remember me right away, but I remembered her. I reminded her, and then she remembered me. I told her while the class and the trainer was in the room. The trainer walked in as I was leaving, and the trainer asked me if there was any thing wrong. I said no, that I was talking to the manager from the program about the company, and left. I didn't want to say anymore. The trainer may know or she may not know, but what matters is that those that hired me knew. The guilt that I have, is that I have an advantage in my training class. I feel that it is the hiring department's job to tell the trainer about my experience in the program. I almost wanted to tell her, but kept my mouth shut. I had to tell the program manager, because there may be an document or information with my name on it in past records. My name is an unusual name, so questions may be raised. I felt I told the right people (the hiring department, and the program manager). So, I am going to continue the training, as requested by the company. Whoever reads this, what is your opinion? Would you feel guilty? Would you have told the training class that you already worked in a department, or would you just sit back, get retrained and not let anyone know your previous experience?
I wish it was mandatory for people to work in retail or customer service at least once in life. Maybe something like a mandatory internship in school. Since I worked in that field, I see everyone providing any kind of service for me with such different eyes, and I've never been the kind to blame the cashier for the prices - unlike some assholes.
I met a guy a few weeks ago, just randomly at work. We instantly clicked, but because I was at work, I didn't ask him for his number or anything else personal. When I was home later that day, I realized that I couldn't stop thinking about him. And even now, weeks later, I can't get him out of my mind. All information I have about him is his first name, and not even the full one, just his nickname (which could lead to two possible first names). I've tried finding him on the internet for hours. It's like an obsession. I don't even know if he's single or if he even liked me, and I wouldn't be sad if not, it's just... not KNOWING if there could possibly be something, somehow drives me crazy. I have never obsessed over someone like this before. I don't know if this behaviour is okay or if I've gone insane...
A year ago, I started to feel demotivated with my job. I used to be good at it but then, out of nowhere, I started to feel unmotivated. The best way to explain it is that I felt like the only reason why I'm working is because I need it for my family. Unlike before were I used to enjoy what I'm doing.I also started feeling so stressed and sad all the time because of our financial status ,my parents pressuring me to work abroad, and I don't have time for myself anymore because I still have to take care of my son when i get home and do some chores.This resulted me to not being able to meet deadlines at work. Eventually, it got worse when our OIC left the company and she was replaced by another coworker. (I don't have any problems with the new OIC and we're actually friends to this day) The first thing she did was to reassign our tasks. At first, I was okay with it but because the tasks are new to me and I always tend to submit or finish reports and tasks late, she removed some of it and assigned it to a different coworker. And instead of being able to solve the problem, this made me even more unmotivated and unproductive as I felt that it was an insukt to me and I am not good enough for the tasks assigned to me. I ended up having only 2 remaining major tasks for the team and I still can't finish them on time. I am well aware that my actions might affect our team's reputation and I felt guilty about it. But as I felt more guilty, my productivity got worser. The company and my team are just so nice that they haven't fired me yet. But I always felt like I'm unwanted and they talk behind my back eventhough I don't hear anyone saying that around me. A week ago, I submitted my resignation because I don't feel like staying anymore. I know that it's best for them if I leave. I hope I was able to explain it well. I'm aware that it's my fault that I'm feeling this way but I just needed to vent out because i havent told anyone about what im feeling for the past year.
My boyfriend came to live with me on June 24th 2019. Since then he has quit 2 jobs. He plays video games on an average, 6 to 12 hours a day. The other hours are on YouTube or on his phone about 2-3 hours. When I met him, he was living with a longtime friend and was a manager at a restaurant working 8-12 hours a day. I just!?!?!?@#&!*
Is there someone here who's in Saudi right now? I'm a filipino that wants to work there as a nurse in the near future. However, due to the recent missile attacks there, my family is discouraging me to continue my application. I need to know if it's still safe to work there after the attacks because I still want to continue my application.
I can't cope with working 40 hours a week. I just can't. It's too much. Choosing between getting up so early that I want to die and be tired the whole day, or working so long that I can only eat and sleep after work, is too draining. Having two days out of seven to do something I like and relax is not enough. I am constantly feeling like I'm gonna be sick because of all the emotional stress. I'm not made for a 40 hour week. But being unemployed would probably be even worse, so...
i wasn't sure about it at first but im glad i made the decision. getting a husky is a pain in the ass but not only do i have a companion now, i changed my whole lifestyle (for the better) because of him. i was a lazy piece of crap but after getting my husky it taught me alot about patience, discipline and overall tests my endurance. if u have a husky u KNOW how hard it is to train them but it also teaches u a valuable life lesson of, with time, perseverance and effort anything is possible; it just makes the end result all the more worth it
By my company's policy, we can take days off of work without a doctor's note for one day at a time. Basically as many days as we want in total, so in theory, you could skip work every two days every single week. The managers are expected to regulate the frequency, and if they think it's too much, you have to go to the doctor. It's a really nice system, it allows you to rest when you're just having a bad day or feel too unfit to work without having to sit in a waiting room half a day. But our manager takes advantage of that, and it annoys us all. She takes a day off a lot, about once or twice a month, and we pretty much know that she doesn't do it because she's sick. She spends time with her grandkids, takes a short vacation over the weekend, runs errands or sleeps in after a long shift. I wouldn't even call this wrong, we have a hard job and family time is important and all... what's bad about this is that WE aren't allowed to take days off for that. Or even for being sick. Sometimes, yes, but if you try to call in for the third time in a year, she doesn't allow it. Unfortunately, that behaviour is okay by company policy, she isn't required to allow anyone such a day at all, so we can't do anything. It's just unfair.
I told my self, not to be hurt. It's still hurts though, it hurts a little less, her words. Maybe one day, I won't feel it again.
