3rd day of a job.

2 years, 4 months ago

After working for about 4 hours today, the owners girlfriend decides to pull me in the office, FIRST by saying, “Cristin, that is how you say it isn’t it” I was like yeah.. And she was explaining to me as cold heatedly as possible that they pretty much over hired and that they would be letting me and 4 or 5 others go. Well I just kinda got red in the face cause it made me mad, like don’t hire me and then tell me oh, we’ll call you back in the Spring time if we need you.
I guess I should have wore 8 more coats of mascara and eyeliner and straightened my hair everyday and made my boobs pop out and be superficial smiley all the time I wouldn’t have been let go. They are a newly opened business, and I just hope they shut down in a month. Fuck them, bitches, I don’t want to work anywhere ever again I hate people.
GOOD DAY

Hey, hey now…I can see why you’re angry but there’s no need to tilt the scales against you. It already sucks that this crap happened but don’t harbor any ill-will toward them…nothing good ever comes of that.

To be frank, I’m certain you have the skills required to get a far better job than the one you were about to settle for, so perhaps take this situation as a sign that you should invest your time in one of those more fruitful positions.

Also, I just started working at a place with them basically telling me I’ll be let go mid-Jan because they only needed hires for the holiday rush…makes me sad because I was hoping to keep a hold of that job for next year.

@cristinelizabeth, Hey! I completely 100% understand your pain. The exact same thing happened to me with the company that I was working for. After 10 years, they scammed me, and basically told me that they didn’t need me anymore. So I said ‘all this time I have worked for you so you’ve just been using me and now you kick me in the balls’, guess what the guy said?! ‘Yup, tough world!’

People can be right ass holes I know, but please don’t feel bad because of the stupidity of another, you are not at fault and nor should you see it as such. The fact that it pissed you off shows that you had a genuine approach for working there…

I sincerely wish you all the best and that you find a much better suitable job very soon…one where they value your time and effort…

@cristinelizabeth, That sucks. Too bad we don’t live in the time of global equality and instead live in the time of corporate slavery.

But hey, getting mad is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die (thanks Buddha).

And I shouldn’t be talking. My life’s been shitty lately after dropping out of school..been getting very mad. Just makes matters 10x worse.

dude, i really want to start a company that puts people FIRST. I hope that being the case that the people would then make it successful. I firmly believe technology is moving us in that direction, where people are the most important assets :)

@blankey, It just seemed to make me feel better at the time.. still does to wish them not well. I don’t want to go back to school next semester, i’m debating dropping it too. I don’t know what the hell I want. Yes corporate life is the way of means right now. It sucks. I just want to do what I want and fuck everything else but it’s just not built like that anymore :/

Find something you truly have a passion for and just go out there and do it. You’ll find that monetary gain will soon follow.

i just feel like crying, just because what my heart wants and what reality is, is so much different. Its not even about that job anymore, it’s about my life and the time I think I am letting pass by.

@cristinelizabeth, Cry then. Scream. Hit a pillow. Do whatever feels natural. Accept all feelings.
