Some drama happened at work today. I was mistreated at the last straw with unequal work rights. If I leave before mid July I will lose the work contest that I could win a free paid vacation with hotel room and money. I'm going to stick it out and if I don't win that competition either way It's a win win because I got to stick my chest out and be the adult that I am and face it.
LIFE IS NOT POWER x POWER. IT IS COMPETENCE VS COMPETENCE, BE COMPETENT.
I waste way too many hours of my day, i could be doing so much but i'm just laid down or half assedly working on something. why don't i care enough to work? i'm 22 and a guy. lately i've been making schedules but even those are hard to mantain. they kinda work tho but it's still so hard. how come some people are just super productive like casey neistat? i don't drink coffee at all, ever. am i missing out?
I fucked up a lot... I got accepted to my dream job, which was really necessary since I'm currently jobless. I had to fill out some forms and was supposed to send them in - until tomorrow. I knew this for a few weeks, but just forgot about it. I send them out today, but there's a very small chance that they'll make it there by tomorrow. So basically I might lose my job because I was too forgetful to send some shitty forms in... I hate myself so much.
My co worker said the most derogatory thing that I never thought would come out her mouth. She said "Bruce Jenner has all the $ in the world so he does the gender change." I responded. " First of all its Caitlyn. If you don't accept someone it's ok you don't have to agree because it doesn't apply to you. but you can respect." It's like I really feel bad that I have to teach her that when she's almost 60 years old 😂.....I'm not even transgender, a Christian Etc but I still respect that those things exist! You got to be that dumb huh?
A little while ago I posted about I was soon going to hear from a possible job, well it ended up not being a simple yes or no but another hurtle to jump. But today I have successfully jumped every hurtle and I an honestly say I finally have a career!
I'm seriously afraid of failing. I'm doing my best and learning French while having a part time job so I can go to university. There I have to take a class in Latin so I can fully study. I'd love to major in education preferably in chemistry and English. but I'm so afraid what if I fail. what should I do then. I don't want a dead end job I am turning 25 next month and I'm so afraid of life. I mean what if I pass all exams and just sit there and think that the job is shit. though I'm way more afraid of failing .... plus I have to fight with symptoms like fatigue and depression due to my hypothyroidism. I'm just afraid that I can't make it. ..
Not long after I broke up with my ex boyfriend, I finally got a job offer after months of searching without any luck. It was a seasonal job and I still talked to my ex boyfriend some to try and stay friends. After the seasonal job ended and I cut off contact from my ex, I got an even better job offer. It was my first full time job and the pay was amazing. The training class started on what would've been my mom's 46th birthday. It could be a coincidence, but I choose to believe that was a sign from God or my mom's spirit. I met my fiance in that training class. That job got me off of food stamps and out of government assisted housing. It gave me financial stability and got me out of rock bottom. Meeting my fiance and having the experience from that job led us to moving out of state together a year and a half later. Everything happens for a reason.
I was on the phone at work, talking to a customer. The girl behind me starts telling a story and shouting "I'm pissed! I'm pissed!". I put my phone on mute while the customer's talking and tell the girl behind me "I'm on a call. Watch the language". She says back "No one's cussing". I said "I don't want my member hearing you're pissed, thanks" and get back to talking to my customer. The girl behind me said (with a rude tone) "You could've asked nicer, thanks". Here's the thing though, that this girl should've known, if quality hears someone on my side cursing or saying anything inappropriate, I get a major quality infraction which could get me fired. Doesn't matter if they know it's not my voice, doesn't matter if they know exactly who said it, I still take all the heat for it. I don't have time to politely make up a BS excuse to put my customer on hold so I can take the time to be polite when I ask someone to not cuss and risk my job. The polite thing to do is not cuss on the production floor when people are on the phones in the first place. I've heard it debated before on whether pissed (in the context of being angry) is considered cussing. I think it is. Quality and my customers might agree with me too. Luckily my old team leader Amanda was standing right there to talk to the girl about it right after it happened. I knew Amanda would agree with me and knows I never raise my voice or get a tone with anyone. If she wasn't standing right there I probably would've gone to her after clocking out or told my current team leader next time I see him.
I work for a vacation exchange company. I heard a coworker say the panhandle of Florida is "the bottom part" and wouldn't listen when another coworker tried to politely tell her where the panhandle is. You need to know. If you say 'the bottom part of Florida" I'm going to think you mean Miami. The panhandle is that strip of land north of the Gulf of Mexico and connects to Georgia. I don't expect perfection because I'm far from perfect and ask dumb questions a lot, but you need to know basic geography in our work.
