I work in a supermarket since 2 weeks ago, only 3 days per week, to save some money for later. The first days I struggled with the cashier's part of the job, and thought about quitting, but then it got a bit better (only few customers) so I decided to stay. Until today. You can feel that Christmas is coming, more people are here, and then there was one really rude customer. And I don't talk about not saying hello or snapping at me or something, he was so rude, I didn't even know that it was humanly possible to be like that. I almost cried right there in front of everyone, but managed to hold back the tears. Until they told me to stay 2 hours longer. When I said that my shift ends earlier, they just said "No, look at the plan we changed it, next time look at it earlier". Like... noone told me that there IS a plan, let alone that I am supposed to look at it. I also made a lot of mistakes today and don't know if I can be sued for that or anything. I'm currently on break, and sit in the locker room trying not to cry (with mediocre success). I "only" have to do 4 more shifts, then my contract ends anyway, but that's too much for me. I'll definitely quit, even though I know how weak I am for doing it, but I don't care. But the thing is, even if I quit, I will have to work one more shift. And I'm really afraid that this will be hell, because then not only the job will suck, but the other employees will hate me.
Is it possible to have really bad social anxiety and work in customer service or as a server? I get bad panic attacks sometimes and I can't breathe half of the time....it becomes so overwhelming especially with people being so demanding
I'm 23 years old, turning 24 next month, and I just spent at least 5 minutes entertaining myself with making fart noises against my hand and arm. I'd keep doing that, but I'm in my car at work. I gotta come back from lunch soon.
I hate my current job so much. I'll only have to do it until Dec 30, so there's no point in quitting. But I hate it so much. I am already completely devastated and full of fear and nervous and basically all bad feelings one can have. I always try to tell myself "only 6 hours, and this only 6 more times", but for me it's simply not "only". It's a lot. I hate this.
anyone ever jumped a train barrier in the uk before? lost my train ticket and i dont have the receipt and i dont know what to do
right now I'm really tired. tired of working with racist and homophobe colleagues, tired of losing friends, tired of being with my boyfriend, tired of life. I'm just so sick of it and I feel like I could cry the whole time. I'm just so stressed out with everything and I can't seem to have a break. I'm losing myself again.
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.
