I had a job for two days in february earlier this year and I think I permanently damaged my back while lifting a box, this sucks so much, I thought injuries were from repeated actions, didn't think just one mistake would destroy my body

I left my last job earlier this year because it led to a psychotic break, and now I'm running out of money. I even cashed out my 401k, which I still have to pay taxes on when taxes are due. Now, I can't even seem to find a job at all despite applying everywhere apart from burger mcjobs that would surely drive me to suicide. Why is everyone saying it's so easy to get a job now? Not even food service places will even give me an interview.
I applied to uni just for the hopes of getting student loans, but school doesn't start until June or July and you don't get your money until even later. How are you supposed to pay your course fees then!? or do anything???
I hadn't really intended on dying, but this situation has me considering it.

I'm pretty fucking angry man. All the shit about getting compensated for a vaxx injury is bullshit. They just refuse to diagnose you with anything and just let you fucking suffer. No sick note, no diagnosis beyond "general malaise". Nothing. A nurse told me after I pressured her that they were just covering the negative effects up, and after going what I went through, I believe it. As soon as they ruled out Pericarditis, they just basically biffed me out onto the street and didn't want to hear from me.

People feel so entitled to help that they try to make life hell for the company and me by proxy when refused. Do they seriously expect random people to care and fix the stupid "easy" issues that they have? I've been called names ranging from robot to evil to asshole to all sorts of vulgarities, simply for refusing to give them my time and attention, during work time, outside of the scope of said work.
To be fair, I frequently refuse such requests even outside of work as well.

Having to decipher incoherent word salad and try to deduce what the customer's problem with our service actually is, having to wrangle them to get them to do something simple to help fix their issue (a whole other can of worms, especially when people exclaim "It's urgent and very important!" and then refuse to do anything at all to help me help them), having them go off on how shit our service is and get offended when I interrupt them with "Please calm down and help me work on fixing the issue you're having, then.", all of those I accept as aspects of working to help people with issues.
However, when they go in with absolute certainty that they are entitled to my attention with anything they ask for, is when I draw the line of bullshit I am willing to put up with. They can't take "No" for an answer and their reaction is barely short of a fucking retarded childish sperg-out.

This happened enough times by now that I started wanting to look for a job that wouldn't require me to talk to customers at all, even if the pay is lower. I guess it's my own fault, getting a job doing something I'm actually qualified to do, that led to this in the first place.

Some people only need 4 hours of sleep. Depends how you feel. If you're hitting fewer REM cycles it makes you feel less real, more dissociated. I feel that way and I can't tell if it's because I might have minor hearing loss, or because of the lack of sleep, or because since I started waging I go to the same florescent-light prison every day.

Just got fired from my wageslave job. I have mixed feelings. On one hand I'm glad that I'll have some time off to NEET around my house, but on the other hand I don't know what I'm going to do once that NEET period is up. I barely have any work experience and have basically no money saved up.

If you have autism, there's nothing for you career wise in the normie world. Having a job and "making it" doesn't improve your life significantly, and the happiest autistics just work part time as a janitor or something by themselves or on NEETbux.

Even when an aspie "makes it" and becomes a techbro, he still lives the same as he did as a NEET. There's no real difference, the money doesn't make you neurotypical. There's fucking no point to any extra income, it doesn't make you happier.

There's something nefarious about working in tech and I can't work out what it is.

On paper it seems like the perfect industry. It's in demand, they make absurdly high wages and they have amazing job security. Yet every person that works that job over time becomes a reclusive shut in and a constant whiner. Maybe it's anecdotal, but it's happened to everyone I've known that's got one of those jobs, especially with men, it seems like a beeline to being a porn or video game addicted shut in loser that never does anything in life.

What is there about this job I'm not seeing? You don't get fired, you clearly spend half the day doing nothing. What's so stressful and bad? I actually avoided getting into CompSci myself because I was worried the same sort of disease that happened to people I know that got into it would happen to me.

>my mother is forcing me

why are wizzies so afraid of saying no to their parents? between taking experimental vaccines, going to weddings and taking up loans for expensive yet worthless degrees, how the fuck do you FORCE an adult man to do something he doesn't want to do?

at least i can understand that one wizzie that got a frickin nintendo switch for taking his booster shot. are you even getting paid for this gig? you could always just slack off or do some passive aggressive shit if you're too much of a wuss to confront your mother directly. maybe if she sees how useless you are in that environment, she'll tell you to go home lol

>>251596
>every person that works that job over time becomes a reclusive shut in and a constant whiner.

being a whiner is just part of the cope of being a wageslave (example: this thread), but i'm not sure what you're talking about with the first thing. all the people i work with are either family men or normalfags that go outside and do normalfag shit. maybe recently due to covid restrictions, people stay inside more, but your observations are not a general pattern i've found to be true.

a person that might be inclined towards having a reclusive shut-in personality is more likely to find the introverted, abstract work in computer science rewarding or at least tolerable. but not everyone that works in tech is recluse or becomes one, there's too many normalfags, overwhelmingly so.

I am conflicted about whether or not to be NEET. Being a NEET 22 years old who receives a Disability Pension (autism bux) in Australia living with my parents. THE boredom and loneliness(?) is constant. Some people boast about being a NEET. But I don't know if I can stand being like this for any longer.

Some people would say, but you must be a 'comfy' circumstance, enjoying the 18,000$ moneys you earn per year(800$ a f/n) not working. You have all the time to attend to your hobbies and interests. You have all oppurtunity to play. I envy you.

Though I don't think I can be like this. I think I need some employment. But some people dread employment apparently. Am I stuck in feeling dread?

I think if I would be doing menial tasks outside of a small enclosed space I would then be improving my circumstance. Where I would be commuting to and from. Being in a small enclosed space 24/7 is just sickening for me. Sometimes I seek to just wonder in some park for therapy but there is no park in walkable distance.

New Zealand wizzie here. They let us earn a certain amount on top of autism buxx here to keep, and after that amount ($160) they deduct it from the base benefit. I'm sure it's the same in Aussie.

You don't have to get a full time job. Just go to WINZ and say you want something part time and get a comfy nightshift thing that's like 4 hours a night 2-3 nights a week. They'll understand and help you get it. Just don't let them bully you into working more hours.

Depends on where you work I think. I worked in a warehouse for years and they would work the absolute piss out of you and try to squeeze what little life you had left afterwards. I think if you are in an environment that is really going to push you to meet certain quotas then it may become too stressful. If not, then it may be worth trying. Warehouses have an insane turnaround rate anyway.

tech is too broad of a term, hell even just 'IT' or 'Software dev' is too broad of a term. theres a distinct difference between the regular 'code shoveling' jobs, industry boomer filled 'software janitor' jobs and the fruity uptown startup tech ventures.

Just a friendly reminder to my fellow wagies, to never teach everything you know. I spent a month training some bitch to help me do my job. As a result I was moved to another department and they have her another suckubus to keep her company. Now when I go over there I am given the stink eye and today told I'm not helpful at all when I go over there. Well that's what I get for trying to mentor a coworker. They want me because I know how to program these machines and I will definitely not be helping them anymore if they do run into something. But they haven't needed me in months. That's fine I suppose. But just a reminder, NEVER SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE. At least, not all of it.

I'm just confused. I can't discern how dangerous covid actually is. I can't discern how safe and effective the vaccines are. I may as well not think about, I have to be jabbed by the 31st before being unemployed so I don't have an option. I'm fat and in poor health.

I don't know what to do.

I was thinking about quitting my job, getting a different place to live, moving to a new city and trying to land a similar job to what I have now.

I feel trapped. What if I end up with a job I hate? What if I end up in a place I hate to live?

The whole situation fills me up with anxiety. I feel like crying and I was before. It feels like there's a hole in my chest and it hurts.

This decision could determine if I kill myself or not. If I can bear to go on living. I don't know if I can make the leap. I don't know what to do.

You know that normie saying, "the grass is greener on the other side"? Here's the thing, you might end up doing all those things you said, quitting your job, moving somewhere else entirely, but still end up in the same position you are now after a while. Bored and unsatisfied with your life. I always think its better to make small changes first and see how it helps your situation, maybe instead of moving to a new city, move to a new neighborhood in your current city first and see how you handle the change. Get a different apartment. Instead of leaving your job, see if you can transfer to another department or try a different line of work if you're able to. Maybe change your routine and see how you feel. People like to think making drastic changes will suddenly improve their lives, but oftentimes they may just end up in the same position where they started. Figure out what's really bothering you about your current situation and go from there.

i work at a walmart as a cart pusher.
i came by to say that ive worked at 10+ different corporations and numerous positions, and i can safely say that cart pushing is the easiest and best for a wizard by far and i recommend you all try.

let me quell some fears you may have:
-you wont be speaking to anybody at all except for saying "thanks have a good day" to people throwing carts at you, which happens maybe 10 times a day. none of these people have ever engaged me in conversation.
-you will never ever see a manager. i dont even know my manager's name. they dont bother coming outside. it's like a self-run anarchist situation with the cart pushers. as long as you do your job (which means keeping at least 10 carts in the cart area, that's all) then a manager will never have any reason to come outside.
-the exercise strain is minimal. you walk about 12 miles a day but it's not even noticeable after 2 weeks. you don't have to run and you'll never have to use your hands because you have a tractor to push the carts for you. i havent pushed carts by hand since my first day on the job.
-they will never ever ask to promote you. cart pushers stay cart pushers forever. you wont be harassed to be crosstrained. (stay the fuck far away from the deli/produce/meat sections especially. all three of these departments are now considered one department, so you will have to be trained in all 3 at the same time. ive never heard of anything this fucked up before and im surprised people arent rioting about this. deli alone is the hardest department in the store, so i dont know why they thought it was a good idea to force 2 more departments onto their workload. STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM DELI/PRODUCE/MEAT. if that's the only position they have open for you then just walk out.)
-bums will leave you alone because they know cart pushers are broke.
-you can use your phone and take breaks whenever the fuck you want. nobody is there to stop you and nobody will complain as long as there's carts in the cart bay. i have disappeared for 2 hours on a 4 hour shift and nobody even noticed because i had carts in the bay.
-you can choose your hours and if they give you a schedule you dislike then you can talk to them and they'll fix it immediately.
-you can wear whatever the fuck you want. Cart boys have zero dress code. You can show up to work with a mohawk, tattoos, and facial body mods and nobody will say anything. they directly said so during my interview.

some cons:
-if your walmart is in the ghetto then you need to buy a gun with your first paycheck. personally for me, i have already seen a car have its window broken and a bum jumped in and stole it and ive only been here for a month. bums sleep in electric wheelchairs and piss in jugs and throw them in bushes. bums scream and shout and beat the shit out of each other and pull scams on normalfags.
They've only ever directly talked to me maybe 3 times, but you never know with these people and i'd rather be safe than sorry. get a fucking gun ASAP if you're in a drug infested part of town. you can get a .380 ACP for under $200 and it'll get the job done. i personally bought a Glock 27.
-most walmarts only have 4 cart pushers on the schedule. Actually getting the job may be the hardest part of it all. the department will probably already be at max capacity and it wont even give you the option to apply.
Basically the only way to get fired from this job is to no call no show or walk out during a shift, so it's rare that someone is terminated. All of the guys in my department have been here 4+ years and have no plans to leave.
-the equipment is from ~1980 and it can be fucky sometimes. my tractor malfunctioned once and drove into a guy's car and smashed it so good that his back door was caved in 2 feet deep and scratched like wolverine claws. It was stressful and shitty but you can learn the problems and learn to avoid them. The managers didnt give a fuck that i did that at all and gave them a settlement and then told me im good to get back to work. It happens often.
-you will need to buy a Lot of clothes you normally wouldnt because the weather conditions are fucked. the soles of your shoes will melt in the summer, you'll have to hide your phone somewhere inside when it's raining because it will get soaked if you leave it in your pants and you'll probably get pneumonia, cart pushers lose consciousness from the heat in the summer all the time etc. Buy lots of cheap boots, buy a full rain coat, buy a hat with an attachment that covers your neck from the sun, buy sunglasses, etc. If you don't, you WILL be fucked and hard.
-im fat and the job makes me hungry all day long because of the walking
-your coworkers may talk to you when it's slow. results may vary. all they ever discuss with me is work related stuff and they mostly dont have time to really explore my psyche or share about themselves. i usually answer with "yes" and "no" to avoid autism meltdowns. it's been alright, but maybe you wont be so lucky. Most cart guys are special needs retards so they're pretty harmless. this is maybe something that should go into the pro section.
-if you dont have a visual imagination, you might be so bored that you'll want to kill yourself. Working with the tractor is so repetitive that it eventually becomes like a part of your body and the job then requires zero focus. it's akin to working in a factory. therefore i think it's necessary to have an imagination so you can play with your imaginary friends and karate chop people and stuff while you're doing soulless manual labor for hours.

I had pushed carts for sam's club, and it was somewhat a mirror of your experience. The difference is that the cart machine was ALWAYS broken, which I didn't really mind since I tend to favor athleticism so I found mushing an ungodly amount of carts a fairly fun feat of strength. We also never had enough shopping carts, so on busy days you would really have to bust some ass to keep up from getting yelled at. Maybe it's just the difference between the two institutions, but my managers were always on everyone like a hawk. I was able to fly under their radar because they thought I enjoyed working hard for them, but that's not how I viewed it.
Considering that people buy a lot of furniture and bulky groceries, people always wanted help loading things, and since most of the people that shop there are old, they would almost always tip.
But yes, do not move inside. It will absolutely not be a promotion. I only did because I was starting to tire of the heat of the summer, and wearing only long sleeves/pants to prevent sunburn just made things worse. Like you say, boots are a must as well. Otherwise you may end up with a broken toe or something, and they're good for the rainy season as well.

You know, you can always transfer within the company to a warehouse as well. I was dumb enough to do it for the pay and fewer worked days, but the walmart warehouse in particular that I transferred to was absolutely horrendous. Tons of pressure, and really political for a life dropout tier job. Maybe if you can find output statistics and determine if it's a low output distribution center, then maybe it would be worth it. But bear in mind they would rather hire bums off the street rather than inside of the company.
I no longer work there since I was very sick of the menial labor day in and out, abuse from managers, and the physical pains the work brought upon me. It was essentially impossible to get fired, I had not shown up in a month and when I returned I got a "Welcome back". I quit a couple weeks after.

Where the hell are you guys from? There is no cart machines where I live and I had no idea such a thing existed, I assume it pushes carts.

That's the same in even the most developed Canada, but at least big chains like Wal-Mart have a motorized assist thing that offloads muscle work so they even get the eldery workers to push trains of 50+ carts across the parking lot. Being a simple "door greeter" as an elderly is just a legend now, a fairy tale from a better time. Such a job is reserved for the completely mentally retarded now. The companies put these drooling wheelchair'd downies inside the doors as a decoration to show how inclusive they are. 89 year-old Gary who got conned out of his pension because the company he worked for over 30 years didn't file the right paperwork… He has to push carts, restock shelves, tell every bumbling ididoth where every item in the store is, and wipe toilets, and he'll be doing it until he dies.

im now feeling the effects of this as the day after New Year's they transferred me to loss prevention without even asking me. they did the transfer while i wasnt even at work.

i walked out. i might show up tomorrow and explain to them i have schizophrenia and that i can't have a face to face customer service job, especially one where verbal and physical confrontations are expected, and see if they'll let me stay on carts.

Pretty comfy and you can tell random grocery shoppers “oh I don’t work here.”

I dunno about how it is now, but my first job over 2 decades ago was as a 'courtesy clerk' at a grocery store. It was the entry-level job where you basically did all the bitch tasks at the grocery store that no one else wanted to do. Bagging, cart pushing, cleaning, and restocking the shit that people left at the cash register was pretty much all I did. I would often just fuck around outside for half of my shift so I didn't have to interact with customers, though.

I started as L2 support and moved to different projects when a chance presented itself. There was a lot of luck involved for me to end up where I am now, since most of the time you don't really know how good a project is at first glance.
From my observation I can safely say that most L2 support wagies tend to move to a better place within 3-4 years. If you can't find an L2 position with no experience you can work for like a year in L1 to get something worth putting on your CV, but be prepared to hate it (tedious, schematic, lots of human contact).
