I am doing sort of an internship currently, doesn't matter how I call it, the situation is: I got offered a job for three weeks, don't have any experience in this field at all, get payed minimum wage and the job description said that I have to put products on shelfs and help costumers when they ask where a certain product is. So, my first day was yesterday and it went okay. But today, they ordered me to do a cashier's job. And I sucked at it, badly. I don't seem to get it, I don't want to do it, and if they had told me from the start that this is what I'm supposed to do, I wouldn't have accepted the job at all. But now, I don't really know what to do. I don't need the money, so it wouldn't matter if I lost the job - but I don't really want to quit (long story, it boils down to: quitting could affect my future badly). I am going to ask them to never send me to do this again, but if they say no, I'm fucked. Then it's either: quit and possibly have some bad effects in the future, or do it and spend the next three weeks hating my life. OR, and that's what I'm not sure about, tell them that the job description said something else and that they CAN'T make me do it. But that will be a whole lot of reading laws and such...
My inconsiderate boss just got fired. It's so sudden that I don't know what to feel. I am somehow thankful that I can finally work with a peace of mind because she's not there anymore and at the same time I also feel sad and worried about her.
I am starting a new job in 5min. I am standing outside and am too afraid to go in. I mean, I will go inside eventually, but the fear is overwhelming. I'm a little afraid that I'll break down crying out of stress any second.
My biggest drive in doing well at my new department is that I want to tell my old team lead, who I only knew for a month, that she was wrong. She didn't believe I could do this. Anyone who may have secretly thought I don't have it in me to do this job, but was too polite to actually say it, I want to surprise them. My favorite former team lead, who I knew for a year and she believed in me, I want to make her proud. I've got it in me, I just needed the right support and guidance to make it. I take personal offense to being told I can't do something, or what I'm doing isn't good enough. All I need is the right guidance and resources to help me. And a little bit of spite.
Maybe I am too young to be on here since I am only ten but something really bad happened to me yesterday. My parents are far away right now and aren’t coming back for another week. Because of this my cousin who is 19 is staying at our house to take care of me and my brother who is 12. And I’m a boy too by the way. All day yesterday my cousin said I was misbehaving and that if I didn’t stop misbehaving he would punish me. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong but he kept saying I was being bad. Then later when I spilled water on the table by accident that’s when he really went crazy. He said he had enough and took me to the basement and told me to stay there until he told me to come out. So I stayed in the basement for a really really really long time. Like for an hour. And when I couldn’t take it anymore I came out. When he saw me he started screaming saying that I wasn’t supposed to come out until he said so. I said sorry but he dragged me back to the basement by my hair and I was crying and I kept saying I was sorry. Then in the basement he tied me up to this pipe with a metal wire to make sure I wouldn’t come out this time. It hurt a lot and the wire was sharp and it cut me and made my wrists drip blood. Then he was screaming about how I’m stupid and a lot of other stuff I’m not allowed to say. He started spanking me so hard that it gave me bruises and I started crying even harder. And I never cry when other people spank me. Then he unzipped his pants and he started doing something weird. I don’t know what he was doing but when he finished he started peeing on me but it was weird because it wasn’t like normal pee. It was different. It was so gross I seriously wished I wasn’t alive anymore. Then he left and didn’t come back until the next morning. And I only know it was the next morning because after he untied me and took me upstairs the clock on the microwave said 10 am. So yeah. And he said to just forget about everything that happened and to never talk about it to anyone. I am really really mad and I hate him for doing that but I am more afraid than mad. And he is not letting me call my parents on the phone. He hit me when I tried calling. He has started being mean to my brother too but not as bad as he was with me. I am so scared he will go crazy like that again and have no idea what I should do. I don’t want to stay with this person for a entire week. I had no idea he was so scary.
It's kind of gross when I hear someone at work use the bathroom but not wash their hands. The sink, soap, paper towels, and hand sanitizer are all automatic and make noise when you use them. If there's only two of us in there, I can plainly hear you doing your business and walking straight out. I get it when you need to get back to work asap and don't have time to wash your hands, but at least get hand sanitizer. It takes a second to use.
I've been a loner for years. I'm used to it and don't even want to connect with others. I have a feeling I should though, because my social skills aren't good and everyone keeps talking about how important networking is in the professional world. But wouldn't it be insincere to try to make friends with someone when you're not interested in them in the slightest?
I always run into my boss in the least appropriate moments. One time, I called in sick for a week. In the middle of this week, it was a Saturday evening, I was standing at a bus stop when he suddenly drove by me in his car (he saw me). I had run out of tea and didn't want to spend all Sunday without tea, so I had decided that a quick trip to the store would maybe even be good for my sickness. But for my boss it probably looked like I was driving to a party or something. I didn't talk to him about it because I figured it would sound like a fake story. Then, another time, just after arriving at work, I noticed I had forgotten my keys at home. Since my wife is home in the morning when I'm at work, but is at work later when I come home, my coworker (higher rank than me) allowed me to quickly go back home. Of course, just when I came back, I ran into my boss, for whom it looked like I had come almost an hour late to work. But we couldn't explain to him what actually happened because my coworker didn't want to get into trouble for sending me home, which he actually isn't allowed to do. After the third incident, I'm now almost sure that it's no coincidence, but that the universe must hate me. We all have a key for the office, where my boss keeps his personal stuff as well as expensive tools and machines and such. We are meant to use the keys during work when we need one of those, but of course aren't meant to just freely walk in any time we want. One time, I had forgotton my wallet in there, so I went back late in the evening to fetch it. I had even tried to call my boss to inform him, but he hadn't picked up. It was already dark and I couldn't find the light switch (I later found out it was outside, not inside of the room), so I went to my bosse's desk and switched on the desk lamp. My boss apparently had just left and saw the light from outside, so he came back in. He walked in right when I leaned over his desk to switch off the light. This time, I was able to explain what was going on, but I guess in combination with the other incidents, it just made me look bad anyways.
I want to do something ordinary like cleaning for a living. A simple life is a happy life for me.
I got booked for a job last minute and had to send the signed working contract to another city (where the company boss is). They were supposed to send it back to me, signed, but it didn't arrive yet. Without a formal contract, I won't get payed. Problem is that the job was on a weekend, means I couldn't call anyone to ask whether I should go to work or not - so I just went, worked all day (10 hrs) without even knowing if I'm getting payed for it. Also, in case I'm not, it was illegal to work and I could get sued (probably not, but could happen).
