Oh god, they treated you like "the help"
Did they tip well? Or at all? Imagine the gall to give someone a list.

I guess somedays you must laugh it off and other days, it must inspire resentment.

It really fucking hurt.

Not healthy Steven. I'd suggest rubbing one out, but at the counter of the betting shop, might have you getting confused with the clientelle. Punching walls can't possibly be satisfying? Can it? What inspired this bout of frustration?

My own frown was gifted to me by my foolishness in volunteering to train with the chief administrator for the cash center I work at. She is due to go on maternity soon and they need someone to fill in for her role for nine months. I'll be in a cold little office on my tod and her work load is insane. keeping track of half a dozen banks, making up orders and a multitude of other, time sensitive tasks. I'm beginning to realise I might not prefer doing this, to my previous duties.

I'm learning some great skills, but I'm not sure they will be relevant for my future work plans :shrug:

I'll have to see how it goes.

It's satisfying in the exact 0.1 seconds that it happens, then it is immediately regretted.

Honestly I just had one of those mornings where everything that can possibly does, and everything that individually would annoy me all happen at once. Just an endless cacophony of annoying frustrating bullshit and absolute wankers.

Aah, I know it well. I had one of those of friday just gone. So I empathise. Do you still enjoy your job?

Perhaps it's worth looking for something else soon. It's a jobseekers market right now. In the south atleast, pay rates are increasing pretty steadily across several sectors. Dunno if its reached your part of the country yet, but alot of people are moving careers down here.

They didn’t give a cent, though I neither expected or needed it. It was the third person talking that was really surreal.

Do you mean, talking about you, while you are right there?

It is very condescending. Implies you are beneath their notice.

Creeps.

Lately I have been seeing a lot of videos where people are keeping big cats like lions and such as pets. They’re quite dangerous and destructive and don’t belong on the couch with you. :(

Have to spend multiple hours today working in a different, worse shop than my regular one, with a co-worker who I abjectly cannot stand being around.
