Getting up really fucking early in hope that a certain someone would actually follow through with said plans of doing something today just to find out they don't even want to hang out til turned fucking 9pm. I'm actually fuming. :x

Also there is an annoying sales man knocking on the door but I refuse to answer it. :finger:

Thanks to some spacktard of a stores monkey, a fairly important order I put in back in March has apparently ended up going to a different department 3 counties away. So now I have to order the bloody things again.

Damn pay review.

I have just got a promotion but because they did not put my pay review in time I have a small pay rise so I am getting paid the same as the people I am in charge of. I'm not saying I am above them. Far from it. They are all my mates and I love looking after them, but I work twice as hard now in this new job, more things to do, less free time and no extra pay. They said it will be a year before I get my pay ride for the new job.

Starting to think why I bother.

I am good at my job and try hard so why don't they appreciate that?

I praise my team, reward them out of my own pocket and try to help them where I can. Their scores have improved dramatically and I have only been doing this a month.

Oh well.

Better get back to work!

I try my best...sometimes for you spelling nazis that is not enough

Don't do that, it will be a viscious circle.

I got pissed off at a job. Called them to ask questions about a vacancy, but was told they had filled it last week. Why bother continueing advertising it then?

Didn't get the job that I had an interview for yesterday. :(

Back to square 1. Finding my first proper job is extremly difficult.

Know what you mean mate, took me a while too.

Go to an agency saying you'll do factory/warehouse work anything, grin and bear it for a short while and hopefully you'll build up sufficient references for a more decent job.

Start work at 10. 8 hour shift. Haven't slept. Saturday = very very busy, very very stressful day.

Ouch.

I'm gonna nip the shop and buy lucozade tablets (probably taking the whole pack at once), fags, and I'm going to drink my bodyweight in black coffee.





I hate insomnia.

And be prepared for blunt posts drifting around this forum for the next half hour. Not in the mood for anything, I'm exhausted.

Getting that first proper job is always hard! Just keep applying and practice your interview technique. Don't agree with the doing anything just for the sake of it though, having lots of references from warehouses won't make any difference if you're going for a professional job...depends what kind of job you're looking for I guess!
