previous >>264658


You know, I was enjoying working from my apartment…so naturally my bosses (succubi at that) pressured me to come into the office…just for a fucking potluck. I ain't even bringing shit.

I swear this world gets more retarded by the day.


This is what codemonkeys deserve.


Yes, Sopranos returns! It really isn't the same without it. Was hoping for WW3 with the poland incident but life disappoints again, back to work.


Thew jews own the World and are steering it into Brave New World.

Nothing is gonna happen, and there's nothing we can do. The jews won. There is no God


*the jews


Yet I work for a fucking bank. I just take calls from the comfort of my apartment…or at least I did until today.

I might be getting fired from my nightshift gas station job, some teenagers came in and bought cigarettes with a stolen card and head office is itching to fire me over it. I got a good 20k AUD saved up but I don't really give a shit, money is basically worthless anyway, I mostly only work so I can get some sort of routine and discipline while making my parents proud. I'm gonna try to get a job in a warehouse if I get fired and wait till I finally get the balls to end it. I don't even really have any message to this post, just screaming into the void like most others here.


Anyone ever work 12-hour shifts? How hellish are they?


It's okay if it's 4 on, 4 off, some people actually prefer that because they get extended weekends and more off days in a row.

The novelty wears off very fast if you're doing them 5 days a week. You basically lose your entire weekends to the TV as you need to recover. You maybe get the energy to have a proper weekend once a month and get shit done. You often can end up drinking a lot.

The advantage is that because you're too fucked from work, you start stacking up money. You blink and three months are gone and you have $10,000 sitting in your savings account.


Ship wiz, worked 12 consecutive hours a day 7 days a week for a few months at a time. Being on a ship is certainly way different than land but I didn’t mind 12 hours. It certainly doesn’t leave any time for anything else though, I had 1-2 hours max per day and that’s without a commute cause I lived where I worked. The time of day quickly stops mattering. It’s exhausting and it was one of the few situations I regularly drink coffee. I never slept so soundly as after a 12 hr shift, though I’m not sure whether that was the work or the ship.

I'm gonna have to wageslave again after almost 14 years of being a NEET. Just kill me already.


Sorry for your loss, wiz. Though I must say, I envy the fact that you got to enjoy over a decade of uninterrupted NEETdom. Such a streak is very rare.


I work 911 operator. Shit is draining as fuck but whatever. Bad pay, long hours, body hurts from sitting all day.


I second this, everything is a learning experience.

What kinds of stories do you get? I imagine it quickly becomes stressful to continually have to bandage our rotten society. Try pranayama (breath magick), it sounds odd but it could help with the tension and for enhancing your concentration, among other things.

Around canadians never relax.


I got a masters degree and mountains of debt, still unemployed, but thats all i ever wanted (and cant get)


> Bad pay, long hours, body hurts from sitting all day.

same as any other wageslavery, just change "sitting" for something else . In my case it's staying in the sun/rain for hours, with no place to even eat a meal properly (civil work).


$20 hourly is like the market cap for entry level unskilled labor. Not actually based

I was laying there under the project rewiring some shit for the 8th fucking time because they keep changing the configuration and just thought to myself
>Wow, there's people out there who didn't get memed into an Engineering degree
>People sitting in their cozy home office submitting tickets every once in a while
>Who don't have to commute or work in a fucking lab 9 hours a day


You wouldn't be happy if you did that either


switch to computers and get paid to loaf and eat at the company cafe

First day on the job


Remote work is great but you get used to it like everything else and find new shit to complain about. Having said that, I did just finish a two hour nap in the middle of the work day and no one noticed I was gone. Think I'm gonna do a couple easy tickets and watch the World Cup matches now.

Nice one gary you absolute mong, now the old bills gonna do me for that bodge weld job sticking a motor crane off yer dropside van. We're both gonna miss the footie now


I'll look into the breathing techniques, I like esoteric things. Story wise, it's a mixed bag. People dying sucks and is never a story I like to tell to people, but it's mostly domestic violence. Best call I got was a dude methed up talking about when he died years ago and how he is going to hell, it was funny

Yeah wageslaves all got something in common. I used to to labor work and actually prefer it because at least your learning an applicable skill


Does anyone else avoid anything to do with factories?

The worst of the worst scum work there and it's extremely dirty and chaotic too.


Any wizzies here know how to effectively negotiate for higher pay when starting a new job? I'm currently working at a warehouse for $15/hour, 50 hours per week. It's not all bad, but the hours are starting to have a major impact on my health. I want to find something new with less hours, but I don't think I can justify it to my parents unless I can get a comparable salary. It could also work out if I can find something that seems less 'dead-end.'


it's all about leverage. if you're the one guy in the world that can do a job, you can pick your own salary. at the lower end of jobs, there's not much you can do since the market is working against you, plenty of people can pick up boxes and carry them from A to B, so if you're asking for too much, they'll just get the guy that's willing to work for cheaper. sometimes you can twist their hand if they really need someone pronto but that's rare.

long term you should just learn a specialized skill if you want to make more money with less hours and stress. less people that can do what you do, the more negotiating power you have when it comes salary and working conditions.


I don't wanna work

14 hour shifts
only in america


>Dartford, Kent.


I wonder if he wouldn't have died if people weren't such shithead drivers.
The added stress definitely contributed.


there's got to be more to this story. Very few people get a heart attack at 46 even with long work hours


He was probably jabbed.


that's what I'm thinking too


i had three heart attacks at 30, you just need to be extremely uptight and anxious/high energy


He was probably jabbed.>>268598
That's true as well. That's awful though. Three heart attacks and you're still alive? I'm guessing they were mild/minor heart attacks then? Not saying a heart attack is anything to dismiss, but they must not've been mild. What were your experiences like if you don't mind me asking? I'm also very anxious and uptight, or at least used to be really bad until I forced myself to go on an SSRI for a year to calm myself down (and it worked!) But I'm pretty sure I had a mild heart attack at one point (maybe even two), I went to the ER when it happened and they said it was fine by I'm willing to bet if they did an MRI they'd find scar tissue. I've never felt the same physically since then. Get winded easier, can't laugh or cry as hard as I run out of breath. It's a lot to explain and I don't want to hog the thread but I know what you're saying and have lived it.




well, in my case i was smoking a lot, very depressed and I got into a screaming argument with a stranger. i had an extreme adrenaline/cardiovascular response, ie my heart rate went to a very high BPM and next thing i knew i was losing control of my hands and feet, gradually moving up my limbs - pins and needles spreading out into a rumbling/shaking electrical sensation which then gradually traveled up to my elbows.

pretty soon after i lost all fine motor control…worse was that i was driving, but luckily managed to pull over before going immobile. i've have had plenty of panic attacks growing up but this was obviously in another league, imagine your whole torso, legs/feet and arms all gradually going numb, extreme feeling of immobility, unsure how to breathe, etc. i talked to myself like a bored EMT, "you're fine, just breathe, etc" , mind over matter counts in these situations i guess.

the first two were 15 minutes, and i almost thought it could be nothing, but a week or so later i had a final event and it lasted a full hour. this one was bad enough that the police came because i was pulled over in a bad spot… the cop thought my hand was in my pocket because i had a gun x_x, i had to explain i could barely move. i told him not to call an ambulance because i couldn't pay the bill…he was more interested in if i had drugs in my car.

each time afterwards i was drenched in cold sweat, dazed and extremely tired, traumatized to be honest, the electrical rumbling sensation along with numbness is truly terrible to remember, whenever i get a brief memory of the sensation i start to feel nauseous.

i should mention this all happened a few months after i had a very bad case of CHINA FLU aka covid, so i'm guessing i had lingering myocarditis, likely aggravated by my anger attacks. oh well, each time it happened i was sure death was near, in fact i remember each time feeling a strong sense of fate, ie it was happening at that time and place for an unavoidable reason. i mostly blame it on that virus, i think the vaccines cause heart problems but based on my experience covid itself is capable of leaving your heart dangerously inflamed as well. goddamn chinese peasants…

https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/social-media/mm7035e5_MyocarditisCOVID_IMAGE_31Aug21_1200x675_1-medium.jpg?_=08423 if you believe the CDC anyway.

pretty strange feeling, not to mention having your whole body gradually turn into body pins and needles, escalating into violent vibrations and numbness, being unsure if moving your body a bit will end your life, it just makes me hope my real death will be quick and not a repeat of that struggle.

>you should just learn a specialized skill
That's what I was afraid of. I don't really have any skills like that, nor do I have time to attend a college/trade school with my 50-hour weeks. The only thing I might have going for me is that with my health issues slowly growing, combined with my deteriorated mental state, I might be able to just barely meet the mark for NEETbux. Of course, it's probably going to take a near-death situation to actually work, since my parents don't believe in taking government handouts, even though they both know full-well that the government bleeds us all dry as much as possible. You know, the thought of suicide actually lost its appeal for me for a short time, but over the past week or so it's been tempting me all over again.


holy shit im grateful that i just get arm and chest pain when i cough after the china flu. glad you're not dead wizzie


What is the real,bare truth about Investing?
99% a scam? what preparations do I need? assuming I dont expect to be super rich,but to be able to live comfortably using the internets and without working.


proles are to work as much as required


i'm assuming you still live with your parents and share expenses? why not ask to go to school or some specialized program? most degrees are expensive and don't guarantee a job without social connections, but you learn to code with a bootcamp or 3d modeling or graphics design or video editing or an IT course so you can fix computers for boomers.

since you're working at a warehouse, you could also look into driving one of those forklifts. i hear you can finish a course on that and a license pretty quickly, but probably pays a lot more than just regular box mover.


There are free courses to learn coding, I use Odin Project and Full Stack Open, that should be enough to get a codemonkey job.

The thing is….when you're working you lack time and to learn this shit you need time, my recommendation would be to save enough money to be able to NEET for like 6 months and do all kinds of courses to get into a tech job.


I have been giving a fair amount of thought to getting some kind of schooling. For some quick context about my situation, my dad has a tendency to make things more difficult and painful than they need to be, and he holds onto a lot of boomer notions about how wonderful it is to work and hold employment. Plus, the shitty job I have now is the job he recommended to me, so justifying my departure from that job wont be easy. That being said, he also prattles on about 'getting an education', so if I can get a decent plan laid out, I can probably convince him that leaving my job in pursuit of school is a good move. Another thing to consider, however, is that I'm 30 and most of the world expects me to already have an education and career, and I don't know how many people are willing to hire a 30-year-old man for what will likely be an entry-level position. I guess if I knew my odds were at least decent, I'd go for it, otherwise it's the grave for me.

Also, as far as the forklift suggestions goes: I'm not strictly against the idea, but my department never uses the forklifts, so I would have to go well out of my way to learn it, and if I'm already going out of my way then I'd rather learn a skill that appeals to me a bit more.


what kind of education you choose to get is very very important. Do not just walk into school thinking you will figure it out after several thousand and a year sunk in


>I use Odin Project and Full Stack Open, that should be enough to get a codemonkey job.
tell me you never actually applied for a programming or web dev job without telling me


dismissive and rude comment. why not share some extra tips for a wiz then.


Oh sorry I forgot the part of getting into some very expensive bootcamp or creating 500 open source projects.

read this book, it will teach you the basics of sound investment principles. It was written by the guy who created the first index fund and started the Vanguard Group, so you know he knows his shit.


>Do not just walk into school thinking you will figure it out
That's actually what I did years ago. I felt like I just needed to do anything, so I dove right in (granted, the people at the school were pretty pushy about getting me in there) without much thought. Funnily enough, I chose to do programming and realized that although I was fairly decent at it, I wasn't really in love with it. I ultimately ended up with an unused associate's degree and a lot of debt. Fortunately, I recently received an e-mail from the department of education informing me that my loans were discharged due to the schools bad business practices, so now my debt is gone entirely which is why I've been thinking about getting more education.

I'm going to take some time to figure out what I want to do this time. 3D modeling and graphics design sound pretty appealing, video editing might not be bad either, so I will probably look into those a bit. I also like writing, but here in the US most courses in that category are poisoned by modern 'activist' nonsense.

A final note: I will be seeing a doctor some time this week about my recent health issues. If they're about as bad as they seem, I may be able to quit my job and collect disability while using my free time for school. Then again, I'm probably not lucky enough to make the cut, but I really do miss being a NEET. Wish me luck, wizzies.


> I recently received an e-mail from the department of education informing me that my loans were discharged due to the schools bad business practices
Lucky bastard, when is this going to happen to me?


A special fuck-you to the dumbfuck bus driver who took over an hour to get from point A to point B, which would normally take 20min, thus singlehandedly ruining my entire schedule for the rest of the day, and my sleep schedule too.



A fourty minute delay fucked your sleep schedule? How?


you should have complained to the bus manager, karen


I get you. Neurotypicals don't understand how much unexpected events anger us autists.



Manbaby doesn't know how to drive, so he has to rely on other people to pick him up, then he has to deal with normals on the bus.


Your kind aren't welcome on this site, you faggot bus driver.


American public transport is the absolute worst


do u guise talk to coworkers and have buddies an stuff
coz whenever I work i never talk to anyone


I used to occasionally do small talk with people but they all left and now i'm just some creepy old guy people avoid. Everything is as it should be.


Ever have those bosses that regardless of how much you've succeeded within the company they still find some reason to bitch, gripe, and moan? Because those are mine right now. Assholes. The lot of them.


I only speak when spoken to, and they normally only speak to me when there's an actual need to do so.


I thought that working from home would be paradise but it isn't, my work has increased a lot since my boss thinks that I have complete availability and I can't even relax after work ends because I get retarded teams messages asking me to do shit.

It seems that the only option is to suffer regardless of what I do.


just sign out of any messaging apps immediately after work ends. whatever it is, it can't wait for tomorrow. if someone gives you shit for it, tell them you had errands to run and you're not obligated to be on call.


And again…got called into a meeting to be told how much I suck. Wooooooo. Fuck this job.


T. Literal nigger


i started a new job and like cockwork i become the guy whos the only one that doesnt talk to anyone, out of the loop, alone during breaks, all the rest




sounds awesome


I just finished a 16 hour shift yesterday (Fri) out in the cold with sub zero temp with wind chill. My head hurts and my body is sore. I definitely can tell how someone could die doing this consecutively. This was a one of thing though thankfully. Normally it's just typical 8 to 5.


16 hours? Are you working in an amazon warehouse or wearing scrubs?
