Wagecucking honestly ruined my life. I started working early so I have to wake up at 6 and I go to bed at midnight and I have no energy. Even when I went to bed early I had no energy. Doing simple things like taking my cat outside or working on personal projects, it all seems like a waste of time. The influx and outflow of money seems as natural as breathing to me now (even though I live with mommy to save). I read a book and think "wow who was paying for all this he better get that overtime to make up for all the days of work he missed during his adventure!" I became a full antinatalist instead of partial antinatalist. I don't care for the future much and my soul feels dead, mostly from sleep deprivation. Started working full-time after a year of NEETing and only part-time work before that, in November 2019. I remember falling asleep standing up while watching a machine run. Around June 2020 I noticed I was definitely feeling more dissociated from reality. Continued until now. Time keeps flying and Im going nowhere.

I start an overnight stocker job for Walmart in a couple of days. They're paying $17.50 an hour, 8-hours a night from 10/11pm-6/7am (not sure exactly, will figure that out on friday, which is orientation).

From what I hear, the overnight teams are so busy, you more or less stay in your own lane and just get the work done, and I'm pretty sure the Walmarts aren't 24/7 anymore, so I won't have to deal with customers wandering around.

It seems like I'll just haul a pallet of product from the backroom to a designated aisle, unbox product, place product, make sure shelves look neat, toss boxes, then get new pallet. Idk.

I'm sorry for making the post, I'm just really happy.

For the first time in like a year, I'm actually happy and feeling good with myself. I enjoyed building sheds at work with the other workers. I've been a miserable NEET for years and I'm happy the repetitive thoughts have stopped long enough for me to get out and about.

I am currently job searching and my parents forcibly try to get me employed.
I want to work part time but my mom's boss informed her on a job opportunity and he has connections. It's a fulltime job and i applied for it today with my mother

I seriously don't want this job, it's hard labour and it's in freezing temperatures (refrigerators)
Still i just want a parttime job, i'll quit after a few weeks if they do employ me, they're going to call me today to work next week as a test run. I already know it's going to be a disaster

Some roastie broke down crying at my job today. They wanted her to train people even though she barely knows what she's doing herself. I actually felt a bit bad for her, despite her embarrassing outburst. She started going on to her friend how she never has time, too tired, no one there talks to her, etc etc etc. Dumb normie concerns but I can sympathize if I substitute my hobbies for social activities. Either way, don't really give a fuck, but I figured it might be interesting as a soundbite for a concert album I've wanted to make, a bunch of post rock instrumentals with little voice recordings at the beginning of people's misery. I have a few written out. Having some succubus on it would sort of ruin it though.

 No.244011

>>244005
Neurotypicals are social animals so that's not really surprising. And it's not something I would mock a person for, be they male or female.

For them there is no separating daily work life from leisure time or "real life", anything happening at the job is just as real as anything happening at an amusement park or at home. They can't tune it off.

If someone is antisocial towards them or does not pay attention to them at work, they might very well quit the job because of it.
I don't say it's good or bad, they just live strongly through emotion and interacting with other humans.

As a non-NT I can function perfectly well at my job even if 5000 normies told me to kill myself every day and threw tiny rocks at me.
I'd just brush off the altercation and keep working.

I work in a factory so usually a random normie insults me about 2 or 3 times a week.
It doesn't mean anything to me or affect my performance in any way. I've actually been promoted twice, to equipment manager now.

I just became a wageslave. They want me to write a "request for proposal". I dunno what the fuck that is and they didn't tell me. Apparently I'm in a team but there's no-one else. I guess I'll just play video games until someone tells me what the fuck to do

 No.244031

Recently I've been becoming more and more introverted, even more so than before, to the point where I just want to live in the forest alone forever. But whenever I talk to someone at my minimum wage job about movies we like, or something, I can't help but feel better. Maybe that's unwizardly, and it never goes beyond discussing movies or something.

 No.244056

>>244011
I guess I'm very different then. I think if some normie insulted me for real I would be pissed and would probably find a passive aggressive revenge. I also hate most of them for no good reason because I hate the job, even though they are all nice to me, I am just misanthropic and judgmental. But as soon as I leave work I stop thinking about them. They've invited me out a few times but I've always said I'm too busy and eventually they stop asking.

What job? Sounds like work from home. I'm interested in any details as I'm trying to get one myself. I hate wasting an hour driving every day and not being able to do what I want in downtime.

 No.244097

>>244057
It is work from home, I'm working in risk management although I still don't know what that even means. I may be making a hasty judgment but it feels like one of those jobs that only exists to give the cogs in the machine something to do. Was put on to it by the benefits people. I had hoped I wouldn't get the job, I never even got a response from any of the entry level shit I applied to up until now, not even the ones I had applied to in earnest. I still have some years of NEETing before my situation comes anywhere near warranting a full-time job, but oh well. My first day consisted of me doing nothing at all so I imagine it won't be long until I'm back on the jobsearch.
>I hate wasting an hour driving every day and not being able to do what I want in downtime.
I feel I don't even get this benefit because the role is 25 hours a week, but they're having me work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. So I'm working "full time" but only barely, for shit pay and shit hours no breaks and doing it every damn day. My shift even starts right in the middle of the day just to be as inconvenient as possible. I haven't been able to find any job postings that aren't like this so I suppose this is the standard workweek, but it's so fucking asinine. Is working 8 hours a day a thing of the past or something? Maybe I've just been looking in the wrong places. I don't want to have this shitty job looming over my head throughout the week. I hate it already, they've got me doing homework as if I'm right back in school, writing up meaningless drivel for reasons unknown. My parents also have been overjoyed to see me give up my freedom, which just makes me hate it even more.

I honestly feel like I made a mistake looking for work from home roles. It's nice not to have to go anywhere but at the same time I already spend all my time sitting at my desk and I can feel the effect on my body and my mind. And now it will become mandatory.

Working in general is shit. Does it pay well at least? Do you have a degree? Are you American? Any info would be helpful, as I'm trying to find the quickest path to wfh I can find.

 No.244104

If there are any NEETs here, don't feel bad for being NEET, feel bad for wasting your time. I finally realized this after so many years. I spent 5 years wasting my time in college, going into debt, doing stuff I didn't want to do because I thought it was necessary. Then I graduated with my CS (AHHHH) degree, which I mainly picked because of the the job prospects, only to realize that I hate computers and pretty much all modern technology. Now i work at the same tech support job that I got my senior year. Even though my boss expects me to quit because I'm so overqualified, I probably won't because I've no desire to enhance my skills or apply for jobs, because it is all pointless nonsense that makes me want to die. If anything I prefer this job because I can read a book when there's nothing to do. If I got a "better" job I'd be staring at lines of code 8+ hours a day which would be a nightmare. However being inside all the time, in a dull room with no windows does make me start to go insane even if I'm not working. And lately there is more work to do. Sometimes I dream about walking away from it all and doing something crazy, like squatting on some vacant property while growing crops to feed myself and building a little shack to sleep in. There I would not even know what goes on in the rest of the world, it would be paradise. But I'm a coward, I won't do anything like that. I'll just keep going to work, doing everything that's asked of me, acting like an ordinary person, waiting for the day I finally leave this world.

It's minimum wage, and I don't have a degree. I didn't seek out this job so I don't know what I can say that will be helpful. In my country there's a government scheme where - to my understanding - they pay companies grants in return for them offering to hire undesirables with no skills, qualifications or prior experience such as myself. The benefits people send you these job openings and hassle you about applying to them, and if you don't they cut your benefits. I don't know if there's anything similar where you are, but that's how I got this job.

I make $17/hr which is pathetic for my background, but if you're a NEET with nothing you could probably get your A+, Net+ and get the same kind of job (that's waht I was planning to do before my parents coaxed me into uni). Just avoid big companies as they tend to be chronically understaffed so you'll be constantly kept busy.

Although they're harder to find these days, if you find an IT job at a small office it can be very comfy. And if you stick with it for a few years you can become a sys admin and make twice as much. I think it's the best option for a wizard as you're not constantly supervised, you're in control of the company's systems so they treat you like an actual wizard and leave you alone until they actually need something, I know because I take over my boss's role whenever he goes on vacation.

Yeah going to college and becoming a white collar worker is my biggest regret by far. When I was 16-19 my mom forced me to work at the bar she owned, and I would spend all day moving around, carring heavy boxes and kegs, it made me feel alive. And yes it was mindless. While filling buckets of ice or stocking beer I'd just daydream about fantasy worlds I came up with. Much preferred that to emasculating office work, as any sane man would. If it weren't for the loud music and the drunk normalfags at the bar, I would've never left and gone to (((college))).

They put me on produce initially, and on my 5th day the last half of my shift I was put on frozen stuff. It's really crazy how disorganized and chaotic it is at Walmart, there was zero training, and I basically guessed at what I'm doing. We're also not monitored at all, and I've already found ways to semi-disappear. Once the pallets are unloaded and you kinda do some of your work, if you put a stressed out look on your face and wander around the store, no one will question you since the team-leaders are busy and don't really care in the first place. Out of the 40-hour work week, I've already wasted like 4 or 5 hours just walking around not doing anything while listening to a podcast. I like to collect all the empty boxes, then take them to the bailer since it's on the other side of the store, and to pallet it there it takes even longer. I try to time it so other people are there, and I get to wait in line while they crush the boxes.

Produce is kinda hard because it seems like most of the shit I encounter on produce is heavy shit. Like big ass sacks of potatoes, or crates of citrus. Also, produce has a lot of boxes, and opening them over & over has cut up my hands and made the sore. I don't really want to wear gloves though, because I kind want roughed up calloused hands so I have built-in gloves.

Once I make it to 5am when the morning shift comes in, I can sort of shirk my responsibilities and do very little for the last 2 hours.

Crushed my foot on a pallet jack like 3 times already, luckily the think wasn't fully loaded or I would've broke my foot.

The place is really depressing. Old people my parents age are doing the job and seem frail and miserable. The minority employees are all brash and stupidly loud.

I wonder how long it will take for me to get fired. I really want to see how good I can get at not doing anything.

I would never be able to get a job unless I lied on my resume to include a fake company. Otherwise there's a decade-long gap of unemployment.

Any wizzies who found a job after not working for years on end?

It never changes in this industry. Software developers are treated like cattle, they are abused by scrum masters and other management people. They invent a shit ton of metrics, they want to someway measure a work that is volatile, requires creativity and is difficult to predict, so they can squeeze the most of the developers. Speed is all that matters. Are we creating technical debt? are we creating bugs everywhere? will this software blown up in our faces sooner or later? it doesn't matter as long as you, the developer, comply with the time estimates of the sprint and management can get rich by selling trash.

Managers are selfish assholes and scrum is inhuman and demeaning.

Depends on the company. I've found that a good CTO makes all the difference. Our current one is always on the side of the devs. Sales promised something retarded? He yells at them. Product owners aren't listening to the devs? He gets them in line.

I've been in your situation as well though. Had one scrum master who made our roadmap/every sprint viewable to clients, was a fucking nightmare explaining why x wasn't finished.

I'm currently working the till at some pay-to-park BS. I didn't want this job but odd circumstances landed me in this position where if I quit, I get kicked out of where I am currently permitted to sleep, and so maybe does my family who considers this ramshack to be a home. I used to work here part time for cash alongside a relative but since he quit the place has cone under new management and they flipped the shit switch. I am apologizing to elderly people who come, get their picnic stuff out of the car, looking forward to a day out with the grandkids, but then can't afford the $20 (up from $8 last year) I'm now obligated to charge them to be there. The foreigners who own and manage it blame Covid for making the price of gas go up or something, so apparently we need to charge more for parking. They're a documented greedy and arrogant subspecies of human.

So it's dependent on the weather somewhat. Only when it's not a torrential downpour is someone expected to be there. Aside from working the till, I'm also expected to cut grass with machines that can't make left turns, and change garbage bins throughout the path etc. Everything really. But on any day without rain, the hours are from 8AM to 8PM, a full 12 hours on days where I don't need to tend to the trail which takes an additional 2-3 hours. That's 12-15 hours a day, 7 days a week. The original payment plan was that my relative was getting 50% of all proceeds to sit there from what was 5AM to 9PM, a 16 hour shift. However, the owner (the now current manager) would make expenses like signs, grass seed, ads in the phonebook and other shit for his other business. He would divide the money 50/50 after these expenses, so the relative would sometimes come out of a 112 hour work week with $200 to his name. There is no running water, stable electricity, cable, internet, or even a deskfan in this shack so imagine it being legitimately worse than a a light prison sentence. The relative couldn't afford a car and he was too big to walk or ride a bike, and in the same "work here or get kicked out" scenario, he was forced to do this job for years. Now it's my turn. I got off at 8 and have to be up for 4 to shovel dirt but the other live-withs are drunk and tripping on the cat so I don't expect I will get much sleep.

I'm not having it though. I demanded $17/h and they get me down to $15. Fine. Most sales are Mastercard but the cash is recorded informally in a notebook, so I've switched to a burglar class and have been scooping 20s. I've been evaluating it for years and tried to wormtongue my relative in to stealing what he was owed but he never bit. I make sure to only take what won't be noticed. No electricity, no security. No receipts, no record unless I write those records. The manager has been impressed with the sales figures so far, and I've thrown him a virtual bone by not recording some money that I've put in to the till, so he'll see eventually that there's been a miscount but in the good direction.

At least one 20 each day x 30 days in a month = $600, enough to buy a handgun and some diesel. Plus assume $500 a week after these bastards skimp on my pay, that's $2600~ month. I live here for free but frankly I'd rather go back to sleeping in the forest, at least there I didn't have to apologize to the elderly. I'll be working for at least 3 months and be saving hard, so by winter I will combine this $$ with my own saving and sell some things and maybe work a few odd jobs, then I will most definitely not shoot myself and set myself on fire.

The amount of bullshit us delivery drivers have to go through is asinine. I’ve experienced what you mentioned many times. My favorite is waiting 15 minutes in a drive thru only for them to be out of whatever food they ordered so you have to cancel for no money. It’s also fun needing the customer to unlock the front door to their apartment complex while they don’t answer the phone for 10 mins. I really love it when it’s snowing and they haven’t shoveled a path to their door at all and your feet get soaking wet. I’ve even got bit by a dog before lol. Having a car with a broken AC really adds to all all this misery. Besides all that though here’s a cool trick you can use for some easy cash. I don’t know if this works with Uber Eats but it does with DoorDash. If you deliver on holidays where restaurants are closed, most restaurants don’t actually mark themselves as closed. So if you accept an order from one of these stores and they’re closed, you can cancel the order telling DoorDash that they’re closed, (you have to talk with customer service and prove it with a picture), and DoorDash will pay you half of what you were going to get when accepted the order. DoorDash doesn’t actually stop people from ordering at these restaurants even after you tell them they’re closed, so all you have to do is wait out for these and get paid for just going there. I’ve made a lot of money doing this. Hope this helps someone.

Had to cover from 13:00 to 20:00. I fell asleep at the till half an hour in and woke up to rain so I went home.
manager said he'd pay me 40 hours of work from the register, even though there's less than $220 in there. The rest comes from his pocket. That's 52 hours so far plus maybe 12 tomorrow, which could be $950. That would be $1100 with the bux i scooped, followed by $550 is covidbux. $1650 is nbaa for a week of reading manga and driving a utv around, but my god I need sleep. I struggle to get 8 hours a night because I need so much after waking up before actually heading out to cope with the reality of life. Without internet or hydro at the booth I can't do my usual internet routine so I need to hurry through that when I get back. I was doing 24hrs+ without leaving the bed a few months ago and got used to taking naps throughout the day like a cat. This is brutal, but it's the normal and I can only hope to adapt for my own physical well-being. A customer caught me sleeping yesterday and had a laugh but in my daze I gave him back extra change. The owner was supposed to come today and he's a mental wreck who's been phoning me nonstop but I refuse to answer.

This job would be a dream for any wiz coming from hard labor or abusive coworkers because it's pretty easy and solitary, but I'm too much of a sensitive manchild to deal with the few people I need to answer to. I want to NEET. I want to SLEEP!!

probably because you're mentally healthy? after years of fighting myself to get out of bed to go into the office 5 days a week and then being blessed with remote full time work, I'll never go back to the office. My boss didn't ask again after I made that clear, competence helps in that regard.

The main blessing I've received from this mental journey is humility and gratitude.

There is something being done on earth that is pointless. Righteous people suffer for what the wicked do, and wicked people get what the righteous deserve. I say that even this is pointless.

So I commend mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun.

Good on you. Conditions will only get worse if we let these slave drivers push the envelope on what's permissible. One day it's "just come into the office once a week," but by the end of the year it's "back to normal." If your work can be done from home but they still want you in the office, then they only really want you in the office as a means of further control.
