The Worst Part of Your Day?

    I actually got a job, but now I'm only working 3 1/2 hours a week. It really doesn't even make it seems worth it, I was about to threaten at least 4 any day I'm working or to quit. But my mother thinks some people will quit soon and then I'll have more hours, but at the same time she agrees with me, so... well, I guess I'll stick with it. But I don't think it's worth it at all at this rate, for so little, on both ends.

    Getting food poisoning with violent stomach aches and vomiting, no thanks to cooking and eating chicken breast that sat in my fridge for who knows how long (I'd say a little more than a week). Stupid me just didn't want it to go to waste, thinking it'd still be good, but I won't make that mistake again. Also making soup stock using vegetable scraps I've built up for a couple months in the freezer only for the stock to wind up tasting terrible, because I didn't want to waste fresh vegetables.

    I've been dealing with a few creepy coworkers (thankfully the other was harmless but the major one, one of my coworkers told him to back the hell off) who take me home and I've always had this creeper problem regardless of gender where I'm too much of a nice guy to get them really into trouble or the authorities laugh it off and don't do sh*t like in high school. I just wished I was taught how to get help or to quit being treated like some submissive toy when internally, I got an altitude and especially when I'm super pissed, I get taken seriously.

    Other than that, I've been failing at getting another job (well, I did get interviews but not in my desired field, and I didn't take them). My new manager is also been kind of irritating whereas the person's unprofessional, gets too defensive over something that wasn't targeted towards them, and doesn't listen to me when I need them to. Work's been sucking so much that I dread coming in. The pay is basically minimum wage, my boss is making me leave early, not wanting me to get 7 hours, and we haven't been getting along. I've been trying to get on their good side and bond but out of nowhere, they start nitpicking me and bringing up a mistake I made earlier or the day before with a rude comment like I can't do anything right. I know my coworkers keep telling me to not let a manager treat you badly but I try to stay on good terms and I thought not getting along with a manager would look bad on my record. I just always had this false hope that if I put up with all the initial bad stuff and keep trying to impress them, maybe then they'll like me and treat me better.... even though I know that isn't always true. I should quit whining and land a better job. The "benefits" sure aren't worth it.

    I'd tell your manager how your feeling and ask to sit down and have a proper meeting.

    I'm not happy with my circumstances and told my boss. She's looking into options but I'm not optimistic anything will be done. But she knows that if nothing is done, then I'll go elsewhere.

    I have to work part time at my old job, just to get to work at my new job. Not the one.

    Can someone somewhere give me £50k a week just for waking up already

    Don’t feel well at all today, the stress that comes with school has been getting to me. I have to take a couple of tests today and two of them are finals. It’s crazy, I need a break.

    I have pretty sudden, severe neck pain out of nowhere today. Either it's from [Serebii-friendly negative adjective] job and job training yesterday a the previously mentioned [Serebii-friendly negative adjective] job I work at yesterday, or I'm getting the flu again. I guess we'll see in a day or two here.

    Plus I gathered the courage to call my manager for more hours and she's not in. Guess I'll try for tomorrow.

    I live alone, and I relate to this so much. Well, not so much, because I err on the side of caution, so I've never gotten food poisoning, but I just waste so much food and I hate it. I wish it were easier to buy things in smaller portions so you don't have extra sitting around and spoiling -- or paying a premium to get the smaller size. Threw out probably 2/3rds of a bag of spinach today just because it was too much for one person to reasonably use before expiry (at least it's cheap). Also, it was about a month ago, but my power went out for most of the day, so I ended up throwing out a bunch of frozen meat and stuff just because I didn't want to chance it. This qualifies as the worst part of a day, just not today. I totally contributed to the thread!

    Having to deal with people who change plans with less than 1 days notice every week, which then affects my daily plans. If I have to spend more time on explaining boundaries between personal and professional than actually focusing on carrying out the tasks, I'll get pissed. And I am pissed now. Not sure if the goals are worth this.

    Having another day when you'd just want to argue about some deep and controversial stuff with someone whom you can trust enough to not twist the sensitive parts of it but knowing no pure enough soul to do that. Probably quite small issue compared to all life-threatening concerns in the world but hey, I'm not the right person to tell about worst parts of someone else's day, hehe.

    Still in the midst of work related drama, the few things I am highly addicted to and looking forward to, the Walking Dead Final Season, only 3 days left of releasing episode 2, it's cancelled. All this crap happened in just a couple of hours. My only hope is learning how Clementine's story finishes even if us as fans will never get to see it animated nor in it's full game release. In less than 3 months, it would've been finished thoroughly and not just that, over 250 talented people lost their jobs in a matter of minutes, the other projects cancelled as well. Companies don't care their employees, fans, feelings, nor the amount of heart, sweat, and effort you put in their work. I was hoping this was all just a bad nightmare, hoping these rumors weren't true, and yet, I woke up. Nothing's changed. I haven't felt this immense pain gutted through me in such a long time. My heart goes out to the TTG employees affected by this drastic tragedy.
