I basically had a shouting match with my manager the other day. Yeah I fuck up at work, but it's one month into the job and I'm already being sent out by myself. I know at this level of menial work I'm more functional than most of the cunts they get off the street, so just get off my back.

Why are managers like this? Of course when you start a new job it takes a few months to have all the processes memorized and know where things go/are stored. I'm not going to be proficient any faster just because you repeat the same shit six times in the most annoying way possible.

For the life of me I can't understand why teenagers aren't warned about workplace bullying as they enter the workforce. For all the talk of high school bullying, which is overstated (most bullying happens before or after high school), workplace bullying gets no mention. I was insulated from it as a young adult, but after stepping into other jobs in my late twenties, I see middle aged normalfaggots just being treated like offal by their managers. It's clearly taking a toll on them, because they're so lifeless and listless.

I've seen in play out with the young fellas I've lived with too. Young, eager kids get exploited hard out by vindictive failed normies, one after the other. You'd think other adults would pick up on this and warn their kids it's coming, but none do. I've seen normalfag kids break down into being NEETs for a few years due to it, I lived with one that didn't leave his room for like a year after some psycho insulator pulled a knife on him.

What does everyone here think about the coming so-called 'recession?' I've seen some very well educated people claim that the stock market is due for a very large drop as well as predicting that meme currencies are going to basically crash. I know people have been saying that stuff like Bitcoin was a bubble since it literally existed. But I take this more seriously because it aligns with the current economy and the person making these predictions also predicted the housing market collapse (Michael Burry.)

Burry is a genius and doesn't really seem like the type to let bias get in the way of judgements. He showed some graphs in some of his responses that resembled exactly past stock market crashes. Now I don't know if there will be a crash. But I can tell you all that hiring has slowed down in my industry (tech.) On a popular remote job site its down 33%. There have also been posts on Hacker News about people who were dropped from onboarding processes because companies suddenly decided not to hire any new people. Y Combinator has also issued a new set of guidelines to founders about managing capital due to the economic conditions. They said that if you're raising now you may be raising funds in the height of the recession which is quite bad.

Have any of you encountered anything to suggest less job openings? I got fired from my last job and have been neeting on savings. I didn't really give a fuck about working too much (as I have a few months left) but now I'm starting to wonder if I should bite the bullet and start looking now. IDK, let me know what you think fellow wagies.

I think the recession is likely to be the worst one since the Great Depression, mainly because unlike the 1970s when we had the exact same shit happening (oil shortages and high gas prices, russian sanctions, high inflation and high unemployment), there's no political willpower to actually solve the problems. The way out is obvious, raise the OCR, deal with inflation first and then austerity. Like the Great Depression, we'll probably have an FDR tier solution that'll make the solution worse, wage controls, price fixing, public works, more public spending. We won't have a Volker shock, we won't have austerity. The Trumpbuxx are becoming a standard thing, and here in New Zealand we're getting another round of Jacindabux this coming august due to the recession. Certain government departments have bloated significantly over the Covid crisis, and are jealous of their newfound wealth and prerogative. The problem is basically unsolvable without a major political reorientation, inflation is here to stay. They'll tepidly sneak OCR rates up a little, but be bullied into slipping them back down to keep employment up.

There's been delusional level euphoria even before covid hit. I was told I was stupid for saying gas prices will go back up and that natural gas still has a major roll to play in the world economy, and that people were getting ahead of themselves with renewables. Now here we are, one and a half years later, and gas prices have tripled and there's an OPEC tier crisis due to the russian war. That level of delusion and euphoria basically matches the Great Depression stock market, where everyone thought that due to technological advancement these gains were "just the way things are".

>Have any of you encountered anything to suggest less job openings?


No but I'm not a codegarch, nor do I have a career, I'm a menial wagie and it's been basically the golden age for menial wagies finding work. Every second business is staffed by temp workers from temp agencies. People at the lower level are increasingly giving up on life and living as NEETs, or exploiting all the free higher education being offered by the government due to covid. Maybe the broken clock is right and techshit has been in a bubble, and the bubble is bursting. Certainly people have been claiming that over the last 10 years. I've seen many posts about downsizing and layoffs and they're all relating to tech, not accounting, not the trades, just tech.

I'm miserable lately. First my car broke down and I haven't been able to fix it. Also I bought a washing machine and a dryer but they ended up not working, I haven't been able to fix them. I accidentally dropped a 45lb weight on the tip of my penis (sounds like a joke but its not. The pain was so intense. The tip was bleeding and completely purple from bruising. Even now 2 weeks later it hurts if I touch it even slightly.
6 days ago, I was so stressed out I decided to sit down and play some video games on my PC to relax a little bit. Well lightning struck and I smelled burning rubber. Well now my PC is fried. This all happened within less than 2 weeks. I feel like I'm cursed.

Same anon from the last post. Yes I absolutely rely on drugs. I dont even know the last time I went longer than 36 hours sober. Currently I cycle between phenibut, a (sort of) legal tramadol analogue, alcohol, and kratom, although usually I am using some mixture of them on any given day. It doesnt help much anymore because if you use daily like I have been, your tolerance quickly skyrockets and it becomes unsustainable. The positive effects start to fade and the negative effects begin to increase in both intensity and duration.

 No.259702

>>259697
honestly dude, that sounds like hell. im not an expert on those particular drugs but from what little i know: i know there is RAPID tolerance to phenibut, and the withdrawal from kratom + phenibut is known to be fucking horrible.

i think that whatever effect you're affect would honestly be possible to accomplish with traditional psych meds. like if you want to be less depressed and anxious? then SSRIs. if you want to forget about your troubles: legal cannabis. if you want an altered state of consciousness: mushrooms. if you want a dopamine rush (thats less damaging): then gabapentin (it will be light but at least it wont fuck your whole brain. bonus is that gabapentin has positive effects on sleep and also treats 'restless leg syndrome' which many people have and dont know it.)

i would caution wizards to be more selective about this drug use. i know not everyone has the luxury. but failing to be cautions can easily mean digging a deeper hole.

You might enjoy this story then. Out of the blue I was contacted by this recruiter for a small 2 - 3 person startup. They were fresh out of Y Combinator and probably had enough to hire a dev or so for a year.

I talk to the founder of this company and he's very young. A lot of these tech guys are. But his companies goals were lofty as hell and I always wonder how people manage to get such unrealistic ideas funded. Anyway, he's interviewing me and I'm being open about my abilities and short comings.

He asks me a very curious question: 'what do you think about working weekends?' lmfao, like this guy was obviously fishing for an engineer who was willing to be exploited by the company. Zero work-life balance. I told him that obviously founders are expected to work as much as possible for the company but it would be unusual for employees (with less at stake) to be expected to work weekends too, unless properly compensated. But I got the distinct impression this answer was not what he was looking for. Lmao, slave driver.

Also, he asked me about my age. As I'm almost 30 he joked about burn out. Like it probably wasn't even legal for him to ask me my age. I don't think an experienced tech interviewer would ask such a question since it would open plausible grounds for the company to be sued for age-based discrimination but he went there.

Anyway, long story short: he ghosted me. I think though that I dodged a bullet. Hope you find some solid work soon wizzie. Steer clear of clowns in this circus world.

It's honestly piss easy to get a job.

Literally send in resumes and people will throw jobs at you. That is if you aren't a manbaby with 8 years of work gaps of being NEET, but still there are companies that will give jobs to anyone because everyone is short staffed right now.

The McDonalds and the Burger Kings can't even staff enough people, now think of all those comfy jobs that can't fill up their positions. They're literally sitting out there because almost every company that I know of is short staffed right now.

You know, this is just a tangential thing but recently in my country the Arabian Nights got a translation directly from the original manuscripts instead of second-hand translations from the french version. The book was a modest success and the translator (Lebanese guy but lived here since he was 3) gave a lot of interviews on TV talking about the work and his experience visiting the Muslim/Arab world for research and it's amazing how he had nothing good to talk about those places.

You are correct. Thankfully I have managed to use phenibut only sparingly for the last 3 or 4 months. I have very strict rules for phenibut and phenibut only.

Never more than 2 times in the same week, and only if its 4 - 5 days apart. However usually I have only used once every 2 weeks, or even less. I also take quite low doses of it, for example I have never surpassed 1000mg. As a result I've had no issues with it.

Kratom I think is more risky, but I can't be sure how bad it is because I never go more than 3 days without using it. My reasoning at the beginning was that its better to be addicted to Kratom than any harder opiods, in both a safety and a more pragmatic sense. It's easier to access due to legality and it has a better safety profile. Before I began using it extensively, I was using tramadol daily which was far less sustainable.

That being said I am beginning to encounter the issues that come from using kratom so much. I use nearly 100 grams a week, which is becoming increasingly expensive

Also I have noticed my emotional state becoming less stable, especially during the hours I'm sober. I've become quicker to anger, and get frustrated far too easily.

I envy those who can enjoy weed. It's probably one of the least harmful drugs to use every day. Unfortunately it is nothing good for me. Small amounts give me traumatic flashbacks and medium - large amounts cause outright psychosis.

It sucks because I still sort of experience the good aspects of the substance, such as music sounding better or pleasing bodily sensations. But the negative aspects completely overpower them. I've tried probably close to a hundred times over the years and it always ends bad.

I don't know. Maybe to make the day less boring or so it goes by faster. I tried one of those legal delta 8 edibles last night just to test it out again. The first hour was surprisingly good. I went for a very long walk. However after I got back home things went south where I got intensely anxious and paranoid (as always), it's like I was reliving all the suffering from my past all over again.

That being said I dont regret the experience. I think it showed me a lot of things that I wasn't consciously aware of.

I've been having an extended talk after an interview I did with this company. I think I screwed it up after the interview because apparently, they were asking if I was still interested. Regardless, I'm going to keep on honing my skills and reaching out to other employers just in case. The more experience I get in doing these interviews the better and the more skills I get, the less nervous I'll get. Even if I never get a job, I can still be happy knowing I have the skills to have gotten one, and that I'll continue learning more and more. I'll just need to shed my programming to make myself not depressed. The fact that society can do this to a man because he doesn't have a job is crazy in its own right. You're expected to work and contribute to the economy and your country, but if you're unable to for some reason, whether from mental illness, unluckiness, or a bad economy, you'll feel bad for yourself. Without others to support you, which is becoming harder and harder with changing mindsets with regards to work (get a job to support yourself with a house/apartment) and the economy/society not having enough jobs/resources (cheap housing, food, etc.), it becomes harder to support yourself anyways. Also working sucks and you shouldn't have to stand for your entire shift for most jobs. Also hospitals should staff more nurses. Fuck hospitals.

I would like to ask more experienced wizards for advice. I currently work at a job that is almost exclusively staffed by succubi. In my department there is only 1 other male. Every work day I am surrounded by succubi.

None of them mistreat me or anything like that, however for reasons I imagine you understand, I find it to be rather exhausting. I dont think anyone respects me at all.

Besides that, the job itself involves a lot of customer service, talking to people over the phone, sending emails, as well as lots of face to face interactions with customers. It's very draining and entirely contrary to my natural inclinations.

I am feeling my soul dying from this job, and I constantly contemplate leaving for something else. However I have no skills or education or qualifications and this job pays me more than anything else I can find, also it has benefits which I never had a job with benefits before this. I want to leave but also it seems foolish to shoot myself in the foot. Basically it would be an illogical, emotion based decision if I were to quit only to take a job that pays me worse etc…

Does anyone have insight or experience in a similar situation?

As someone who used to work a “masculine” job, it won’t make you feel masculine. You’ll look at the people around you and just feel out of place, and that they secretly think you’re a faggot.

Or at least that’s what I’m envious of and it sounds like you have it.

Dear wagies, I know life can seem horribly empty when you have to spend so much time working. Honestly I feel like over-thinking can be dangerous. It probably seems materialistic but people normally build wealth as they age and that wealth can make life easier. Try find a high paying job and buy cheap property somewhere even if its in the middle of no where.

I still think wizards should not be so quick to disregard tech jobs. Believe me, its not a meme but it does require hard work. Most of you would make a shit load and be very comfy working in tech. If I were a wiz trying to get ahead in the world I would:

1. Learn programming by learning Python.
2. Read more about tech and find an area that interests you. It may be security, AI, blockchain ledgers, data science, or so on.
3. Find something you hate about it. Make an open source project that goes towards making said thing a little less shitty.
4. Now you can apply to jobs on angel list, work at a startup, stackoverflow jobs, or any of the remote job sites.

It DOES work. It takes about 1 - 2 months of applying to jobs to get good offers (or any if you're new) but possibly much much less. For example, I have had multiple jobs that I got just by reaching out to the CEO or CTO and:

1. Describing my interest in the company
2. My understanding of what the company does
3. Most importantly: how I can help (with reference to what I've done in the past)

Fuck any neckbeards who try put you down learning this shit. My IQ is average and I taught myself everything. The only secret is coffee and hard work.

No, 259863 is right. Not enough people have a high enough IQ to do programming for a living.

I live in a small country and a radio station said a country of this size (a few million people) has an available pool of coders that is permanently around 2000-3000 people.

They need to have certain characteristics (not just high IQ but systematic, slightly autistic brains and a brain structure that supports repetitive tasks and analysis, high capability for mathematics, very good memory etc.)

"Become a coder" is a stupid meme targeted towards introverts or neets.

Programming is an ELITE job. Yes, the people who are good at it are quirky and weird, but socioeconomically many of them are todays elite, especially in Silicon Valley.

Programming is still a worthwhile wizcareer if you have the mind for it. I've been programming since I was 12 so at this point the work is mostly second nature and it's easy to get into flow and lose hours working on complicated things.

However, as the years go by, I'm becoming increasingly aware that technical skills alone won't take you very far. As a wizard that can't sufficiently blend in, you will get passed up for promotions, you will be overlooked by your superiors and in general you will suffer in any area other than purely just "coding". For me, talking to clients and doing presentations of any kind is still a nightmare experience, so in any team setting I just let the more outgoing normalfags take the spotlight while I just focus on implementing things, probably at a 10x rate than anyone else. As a result, no one notices you and until you get hit by a bus one day, your impact won't become obvious until things start slowing down to a crawl or breaking down. "We don't know, Anon was the guy that handled stuff like that".

You can still work in this industry without "soft" skills, but in a lot of ways you're going to be limited and your career path will be slower, no matter the hard work you put in.

That is normal. It's very hard at the beginning until your brain adapts to that kind of thinking.

You are on the right track. Just build a bunch of small apps and scripts that you love and use for minor tasks every day and keep in mind that is going to take at least 3 years of constant programing until you start to become "fluent" on a programing language just like it takes to learn German or French or whatever. It takes years of practice, keep at it.

If you make it fun and useful by building small games (on of my first ones was a space invader clone), small apps (I build a calculator like the one windows has but with a couple of mods that I wanted) and small scripts (you can do things with them like mass rename your movies/series collection so it's all nice and standard) you can spend hours and hours programing and you won't even realize it.

My advice is this: don't be one of those people who declare 'they're not smart enough' to be a programmer. If a book introduces a new concept like what an 'if statement' is then you can bet you're going to go around in circles struggling to figure it out initially.

You'll have to play around with syntax a lot to truly learn how things work. Put your knowledge into practice right away. For example, maybe it says that 'if an expression resolves to true then an if condition executes' well play around with it and see what happens. Type:
if True:
print("wizzie")

into a prompt and see what happens. You have to learn the basics like. Learn the basics like: variables, if / else, while, for, and functions. You can do a shit load with just that. Just know that struggling to learn it is normal. tbhh.

It's true that software engineers have a 'higher than average' IQ but that doesn't mean you need a higher than average IQ to be a software engineer. My IQ is only average and I am a very capable engineer.

IMO, we need to discuss psychology here because I think its highly relevant to whether or not someone will become a software engineer. There are people who believe their minds are 'static.' That any short-comings must be evidence of some innate barrier that can never be overcome. These are the kinds of people who won't put in the hours to learn coding because they think they can't.

Then there are the people with a 'growth mindset.' People with growth mindsets believe that the brain is plastic and they are capable of learning new skills. A person with such a mindset is not going to take initial struggles as a sign of their inherent inability to progress but rather as a temporary barrier to be over-come. If you want to teach yourself a large, complex, systematic skillset, then at the very least you need to believe you're capable of doing so. If you don't then you're not going to put in the hours and it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It may be that a person really is worse-than-average at a task. But without belief in yourself and motivation, even a person who starts off at a disadvantage is going to do better than a person with a 'fixed' mindset. I see many examples of people with such mindsets in this thread. It's a common theme on Wizchan. Start with yourself tbh.

I never stepped foot in a university or class room for programming. My journey probably started with an o'reilly book called 'PHP in a nutshell.'

Honestly, it was a good book wizzie. It literally taught me server-side programming from scratch. I learned logical reasoning. I learned how to develop complex string processing algorithms. I later went on and ported some of the PHP-specific functions (like explode – every PHP developer will know about explode) to C because I was so used to them.

At the time I was working a low paid job so every night I would read some more of my PHP in a nutshell while drinking insane amounts of coffee. I got almost no sleep, but learning how to manipulate the machine like that was exhilarating. That book had actual spells in it, I swear wizzie. But PHP isn't a very well-designed language. It's good for hacking out quick scripts that run on a server but not many people are like "WOW, lets build our software in PHP." You don't build desktop software in it or mobile (though you could)

People apparently have different styles for how they learn. Some like audio lectures, some like video, others like myself like books. Find what works for you and don't be afraid to try more than one source if a particular source isn't working for you.

Most things you learn by doing them, programming is no different. You'll get the fastest results if you jump into making something as soon as possible. I started with C++ by watching youtube tutorials because I heard you could make games with it, immediately started making tic-tac-toe because it was the simplest game possible and failed for awhile, wrote terrible code but making it work was continual motivation.

I think tackling progressively larger projects (that you are actually interested in) is the best way to learn. That way you stay engaged with what you're doing but also you're not biting off more than you can chew. Also, you'll learn things in context by applying it to a real problem you have which makes it stick more easily. Personally I think that's better than the university approach that just throws algorithms and sterile, abstract problems from a textbook.

If you need ideas for projects, try to find the /g/ programming challenges list, there's over a 100 in there color coded by difficulty.

Once you have the baseline competency in core concepts. Then once you've seen through enough random github projects. The average project. Not super popular ones that have millions of eyes on it making it into flawless code. Not code dumps nobody looked at but the author. I'm talking about the middling projects have some moderate level of activity. It's in those average projects you publicly see how absolute shit the average coder can be.

Hell you can even look at old revisions of popular projects to find some atrocities. The thing is coders have such high standards for themselves and others.

I think another issue is the elitist code golfing. Noobs get scared away when they see the showoffs solving complicated contrived problems in 5 lines of code in one sitting. The type of solutions which takes the average person time and brain power to deconstruct themselves. Which they could never solved themselves without having seen a solution before. But nobody wants to admit this. That's what all those testing problems are anyways. You have to have seen enough of those puzzle questions before such that your brain (sub)consciously pattern matches a known solution. Everyone is fronting an image. Too scared to be the guy who outs themselves as a code monkey. Everyone nods along to fit in among the crowd of sophisticated algorithmic wizards. Cause that's what we all are right… Right? When in actuality everyone are code monkeys.

Those who are deriving novel solutions to academic questions are exactly that. They are in academia. Either that or they're in deep research labs of the big companies. That's out of scope for anyone here anyways.

Also yeah. If you don't have soft skills you're fucked. Programming is just a job like any other. Most average coders are normies who like comic books and star wars. These days that just the typical normie. Their soft skills are more than fine but they think because nerds were once unfashionable that means they're the same as the mental cases who cannot into soft skills.

The interesting thing about the brain is that different skills mature at different rates. You say you failed at 7th grade math. You would have been quite young when that occurred. Did you know that basic arithmetic skills peak at age 50. So up until that age people are continuingly developing a more fertile neurological basis for doing math (this is simplified but also true – the average age of Nobel prize winners is 59 – the idea that mathematics is a young persons game seems false, imo.)

Basically, all of the evidence is adding up to say that if you failed at learning maths early on in your life then it would be well worth trying again later on when your brain has matured more.

Honestly I wouldn't recommend learning web dev. The thing about web dev is its a grocery list of ugly technologies that have been added over time to 'improve' the way the simple web worked in 2000s.

the amount of technologies you'll have to learn to be useful as a web dev are astronomical. UI frameworks, MULTIPLE types of databases, javascript, backend… and you still wont be able to make pretty websites because that is an artistic skill and it cant really be learned. the pay off for your efforts is you'll be able to build complex websites. But the world is increasingly just about mobile (and sometimes desktop software.)

The best web devs are said to be 'full stack.' This means they can write code on the server and the client. Startups want full stack devs because they can hire one engineer that 'does it all' so its cheaper for them. but it takes a tremendous amount of time to really learn all the skills needed to be a good modern full stack dev. Now you might think there is some gold at the end of the rainbow for doing all the work to become a full stack dev but theres really not. Full stacks are now remarkably common and web devs as a whole are paid fucking terribly in the world of software.

What you want to do instead is learn Python. Learn the basics of software engineering. Then specialize in something so you don't have to compete with all the web dev code monkeys.

I have recently been taking broad spectrum (little to no THC) CBD oil and it has helped me somewhat noticeably. Normally I'm freaking out when having to go to work, but it dulls me out enough to where the anxiety is easily pushed through allowing me to actually show up. It doesn't fix social problems or anything like that but it does help when I try to force myself to continue working, even though I would much rather sleep at home until thrown out for not paying bills.

Sorry to say but I very much doubt anyone here understands web3. I say this because even among 'tech experts' and neckbeards on places like Hacker News the opinion is overwhelmingly negative. They usually like to compare web3 apps directly to web2.

But what people seem to miss is the blockchain wasn't invented so that people could host shitty web apps and pay for storing generic state. It was created so that someone could build a fucking currency that no one in the world could shut down, censor, or control. A currency that allowed for open participation and (quite decent) privacy.

The blockchain essentially created a new corporate structure that is run entirely by algorithms. Anyone can work for this corporation and be paid for their work. The quality of work is also verified by algorithms. Nothing like this existed before the blockchain. The reason why web3 looks like such a mind fuck is because of people laughing companies that are only tangentially related to the benefits of the blockchain. For example: a reddit-like website that rewards coins for contributing.

Yes, the blockchain is useful for far more than just currencies. But its also not magic and has drawbacks. If you're only comparing web3 systems with few (if any) benefits from using the blockchain then of course they're going to look fucking ridiculous. Because that was never the point of the system to begin with. Those who make these arguments almost always are knocking over strawmen. They never focus on solid crypto projects or use-cases because they're outsiders who don't know shit about the space. How could they know about all the technological developments like MimbleWimble and flash loans as outsiders? So instead they just pick on the surface shit that gets covered in news articles. Often hacks to fucking ridiculous projects run by boarder-line scammers.

Those who want to understand the blockchain industry would do well to study its history. Read the actual Bitcoin white paper. Research what smart contracts do. Perhaps read some of Szabo's essays. Think about the impact of smart contracts of various business processes. Think about the role of trust in transactions and how innovative smart contracts truly are. Protip: there are many ways to manipulate trust in contracts that are generic enough to be used for all kinds of contracts. You won't hear any of this in 'web3 critiques.' Again, so-called 'tech experts' think they automatically should be able to comment on blockchain projects but they lack the economic, cryptographic, and intersectoral background to understand what any of this shit means.

They're so incredibly self-absorbed and just can't help but want to humble brag about their body count score to people who probably don't even care. And the whole body count score thing itself is also extremely silly once you ideologically step outside of normalfaggotry. They probably derive more pleasure from the dopamine shot of adding another point to their body score than the actual sex act itself. They definitely seem to care a lot more about the former than the latter, which is completely irrational. It's one thing to want more pleasure, but it's another to sacrifice it for a number to brag to others.

Now imagine if society and the way it distributes pizza and cheese cakes were different, and people instead were walking around bragging about their pizza or cheese cake count to pizza and cheese cake virgins. Then someone like me would make this exact same comment with pizza and cheese cake instead of body count and finish it off with a hypothetical example about it being as silly as if people bragged about their sex body count. (I recommend Shintaro Kago's ero-guro manga. He has a capacity to transmit to your intuition the fundamental arbitrariness of all societal values and norms, which we all already know in intellectual abstraction.)

Anyway, I'm probably rambling like an idiot, but I blame all the wizards that are off at the club. To conclude, I hope he gets monkeypox at an orgy and looks like a scarred leper for the rest of his life. He and all normalfags who care about that nonsense deserve it.

Gay guy strikes again. He had to go to another town for some reason (wasn't listening to hear why), and indirectly asked if I could cover his shift on Tuesday to do so. I flat out refused to, before he directly asked. I would have worked six nights in a row, so fuck that.

It's really not that complicated. After levels of debt in the overall economy become too large it will cause a crash. The Fed will try to increase the amount of money in the system by increasing the amount of loans issued by dropping interest rates, but once they're out of room to drop interest rates, the only thing that can happen is a crash because this policy only increases the amount of debt in the economy and makes the underlying instability in the economy even greater. They literally can't lower the rates anymore because of massive inflation and the fact that they were already pretty much at 0%, that means there will be a crash. The only reason this hasn't happened already is because the fed is intervening and pumping more liquidity into the markets. This has caused inflation which is basically like a tax that affects everyone and benefits only the wealthy who own assets which are inflated. They can keep going with inflation or they can crash it, but their mandate is all about inflation, so by law they will have to raise rates and crash it.

Honestly the fed is the reason why we have really bad crashes every 10 years or so. If they didn't exist we would have crashes much more often but each one would be less severe. They've been painting themselves into a corner my entire life. They just doubled down on inflating the bubble after 08 but like I said that only makes the underlying problem worse. We are set for a great depression and have been set for one since before 08. I view the Fed as the primary agent of class warfare for the wealthy against everyone else. They have made income inequality way worse.

My comfy dev job has a habit of suddenly shifting gears and making me an anxious and suicidal mess. Apparently out of the blue I now have a new role at work so I have to attend several Teams meetings every week, coordinating with lots of people on a new project and my stomach has been in knots. I think I've made myself clear that I'm just not that kind of guy that can handle all that communication and professional bullshit but my boss doesn't give a shit and just threw me in the deep end of the pool. Give me any kind of technical problem and I'll power through, but dealing with people? I've already been getting concerned messages about whether everything is OK on my end due to my complete radio fucking silence. Already called in sick once to avoid going to a real life meet up, but even the online shit is making me dread waking up in the morning.

I've been considering quitting with zero notice or just hanging myself, but I know it's just fantasy escape and that's not really an option. It was stupid of me to think I could just get by while keeping my head down and doing my work but eventually the normalfags expect you to be fucking normal.

Anyone ever dealt with this kind of, uh, professional challenge? Does anyone ever come out of this kind of thing a better person than they were?

I need an advice.

I've been working in super market as a retailer for 6 months. I've went there, because they've had a vacancy for a night shift. When I was at interview, they've warned me that they don't have enough workers to make a night shift for the shop and for now I could just work during day shifts. I thought it won't take long for them to get more workers and so I agreed, I didn't had much choice either way and my parents were forcing me to get a job. I was getting very weary from the work and a few workers dislike me for being anti-social and for language barrier (although I couldn't give a single fuck about it after third month), but I pressed on in hope night shift will be just around the corner. 6 months passed and I've lost any hope for that to happen. A lot of people come and go here, because conditions are pretty meh and payment is pretty bad so even if they somehow manage to get enough workers for night shift work, it will most likely won't last for long. I wanted to leave this job at 5th month, but manager begged me to stay for I'm somewhat competent worker that has already learned how to work as a cashier, retailer, logistic and other small things that usual worker don't usually do. I've stated that I don't believe there will be night shift work that I came for in the first place, but manager claimed that I should have more hope (I won't).

Reason why I wanted this job so badly in the first place is because where I live we barely have any night time shift jobs unless it's in a night-life sphere (or I'm just bad at searching). I've worked previously as a security and even have a certificate for it, but we've no night shift security jobs at remote areas either and I'm not eager to come back for day time ones. I can't find a proper comfy job either, because I've language barrier problems in where I live.

My goal is to have a comfy job that won't tire me out so that I could continue on my practicing in drawing so I could live off of that (or at least attempt to), sadly I can't just quit job at the moment and NEET off the money I've saved from working, because parents are forcing me to work no matter what. I still can switch jobs no problem, but I've worked on so many jobs and none of them were comfy so I'm running out of ideas what kind of jobs I could work that has minimum social interactions and it won't completely tire me off. Am I fucked? Is there a loophole out of this situation besides selling my soul to slavery to save money for living solo and NEET for at least half a year?

Any feedback is welcome.

My issue is that my anxiety basically makes me drop 50 IQ points. I can be fine in text chat, but the minute I'm in a voice call with 10 strangers, I have trouble hearing and understanding people and I can barely string together a couple sentences. My mind goes blank and it's like there are no words to say so I turn into a mute.

I don't know why these people insist on so many meetings, everything could be said in a one paragraph text message. I guess they have to justify the existence of all these "project managers" and QA shitters that sit on their ass all day. if you're not in a meeting, are you even doing any real work at all?

On top of all that, another colleague is going on a week long vacation so I have to handle all his shit this week too, which means more meetings and basically replacing him on another project I have zero involvement in.

I enjoy this job when it's just me and my code. Any time there's a meeting like this I can't concentrate on any work until it's over. It just completely disrupts me and obviously I embarrass myself like an idiot every time.

Even if I quit and go through the trouble of another round of HR interviews and techbros questioning my intelligence, it will still be the same shit over again. Eventually I have to "evolve" into what the job requires but no amount of epic hacker skills is going to help if my brain just isn't wired for a normalfag environment.

Made it through a couple hell days. I was pretty stressed the first day and I couldn't focus on doing any real work, which stresses me out even more. I've been trying to lay pretty low in the meetings as I always do. So far I didn't need to talk much since it's full of managers and managers of managers and managers that are "shadowing" another manager because he is moving on to something else.

I had to get out a webcam, a mic and dress in business attire while reading off scripted answers I wrote.

Now I have another interview with a live person. Why does it have to be this hard? I don't remember it being this fucking hard to get a job. All I used to have to do was shake the recruiting guys hand and they would offer me a job, but now they're making me jump through hoops.

Middle manager succubi in retail are actually something else. The happier you are, the more they're cunts, it's like they're actually offended that you're in a good mood. They're like blackholes of misery, and they set out each day to feel smug and superior over anyone they can. And like, for what? They're a $25NZ per hour wagies shitting on a $21NZ an hour wagies. I've worked at supermarkets before and noticed these people are universally miserable. The one I know IRL that does the job is addled up on anti-depressants despite being a normie with a husband and kids. You'd literally have to psyche-drug yourself up to handle being around those cunts.

It's funny, because I can chat up the engineers, accountants, sys-admins and the like at other jobs and have a good laugh. I really like professional people and they seem a hell of a lot nicer than what I have to deal with.

Had pretty similar experiences working in a kitchen about a decade ago. Sometimes it felt like they would tell me I wasn't cleaning well enough, purely so they could stay late and then say "look what you made me do!" It's like they NEED drama and conflict to avoid boredom. About professional wagies, it is somewhat more civilised but the problems become more about bureaucracy and paperwork than concrete tasks, which gets draining in its own right, it depends on your personal BS tolerance probably.

I empathize, now and then I'll remember an old job I had with this small fat angry succubi. She used to tell me to do certain tasks and when I did them she would kick up a fuss and ask why I did it, I'd be so confused in the moment that I wasn't even sure what to say. Like I didn't know if she was lying or what was going on
She'd often tell me off for doing something wrong, which I'd believe in the moment, I would then double check the price for the item I allocated and the price I'd selected was actually right

to this day I still dunno if she was fucking with me or if she had a screw loose, probably a bit of both. I think what another poster said is kinda true, that a lot of succubi try to create conflict out of nowhere and I think that played a big part too. Like in her eyes in the exact moment she felt she had valid criticism, without taking into account it was her orders in the first place or without taking into account that she may be wrong about something. I just wanted to do my job right and then get out of there but that kind of self sabotaging middle-management made my life at the time way harder than it needed to be

im a retard but i was thinking, i live in cali, and everything here is retardedly expensive, so i should just get as high of a paying job i can here, and then save up as much as i can (since i live with my parents, it should be easy), then just move to a state with a very low-cost of living where i can get a house for like 200k or maybe less, then i can just kinda coast through the rest of my miserable existence
does that sound like a good 5 year plan?

 No.260546

>>260541
Depends on if the actual math checks out i.e. are you able to reach a particular financial goal in 5 years and if that sum is enough to buy a house and be able to live reasonably well for the rest of your life. When you account for yearly inflation and the housing market going to shit, it will take a lot more than 5 years of working, even if it's 100K per year which I doubt. And then in the end you have some shitty, empty house in the middle of nowhere, where you have to drive 5 miles to buy a pack of cigarettes.

The housing market appears to be crashing (along with everything else), so provided you can beat inflation and the government crashing this nation with no survivors, this is a good plan. However, consider moving out of the US entirely when you've got a financial nest egg secured. No matter how cheap you can find a place in the states, it's guaranteed you can find something infinitely cheaper in some other country and live like a king. I've heard many calidogs are fleeing into Mexico lately, maybe think about doing so as well.

Is anyone else afraid of needing to support your parents for the rest of your fucking life?

I finally found an easy remote job and planned to finally move out of my mom's house. But both she and my step dad started their own business 2-3 years ago that has yet to be profitable and I'm afraid they are drowning in debt from the businesses and money they waste on vacations and remodeling of the house. At least my mom got a side job after the pandemic, but it's in real estate so it's probably about to go under. THEN my dad got laid off his manufacturing job and is now starting his own business too, and he also has a lot of debt. My sister with lots of kids ALSO started her own business that I can already tell is a horrible idea. My one brother is working a dead-end job while he has kids. Me and my childless brother are probably the only ones with more income than liabilities.

If you can, talk to you dad's friend and ask what's the interview is like so you can prep for it.

The rule is to ask you a bunch of stuff out of leetcode.com, so practice there doing as many coding exercise as you can and/or read the book "Cracking the Coding Interview" that is the industry standard for interviews. Check what technologies they are asking for candidates online in their website and in sites like LinkedIn or Indeed.com and study those technologies. For example, in Java they may ask you for a framework called Spring, study the main modules (just look for common interview questions so you can answer basic stuff and program a very small project using the same tech stack to get familiar with it).

If it's for java, read the basic interview questions only that are out of the certification. For example, you need to understand all the theory behind classes and interfaces or about list, trees and sets, that kind of stuff. There is plenty of material only and even many multiple choice apps to practice on your phone. I imagine that it's similar for python.

Only jobs I've found are security and custodians.

However, finding a nice security position is really hard. There are a lot of grunt security positions that are absolutely shitty, like working hotels, apartment complexes, gate attendant, event security, armored truck security, warehouse security, hospital security, etc.

The best security positions you can find is working 3rd shift for corporate security for a large company, at one of their small facilities or offices.

Some custodian positions (custodians are also paid decently, if you find the right position) are also wizard friendly. You specifically want to look for 3rd shift custodian work, preferably an office of some sort.

Working 3rd shift not only has the benefit of possibly getting paid more, but 3rd shift also offers you refuge from the normie world, as you will be going to work when all the normies are at home with their families.

The guy asked for jobs where you're practically alone, with logging you basically spend all day sitting in a forwarder or a harvester with no one around, in fact no one is even allowed to be nearby.
