I shouldn't have quit my job
    #11382011 - 11/04/09 09:24 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

So about 2 months ago I decided to get a new job. Instead of handing out resumes and then quitting when I have a new job, I quit, and then handed out resumes, thinking it wouldn't take me long to get another job.

Jesus christ was I wrong. 2 months and not even a call back. I'm thinking I might have to go back to my old job, which would suck, but I need the money. It sucks to quit, and then have to go back with the same company.

Did you follow up on any of those resumes or just drop them off and hope to get a call back?

Check if UPS or FedEx are hiring part time loaders in your area.

Yeah you really shouldn't bail on gainful employment if you haven't secured alternative income, or at least maintained a decent savings account to live on for up to a year :ashamed:

Fuck a job.  Don't get a job.  Create one.

Its all smoke and mirrors anyway.  Do what you love.  If you felt compelled to quit that job, you did the right thing.  All a job is is stressing someone else's bullshit.  If that person (or corporate entity) is as clumsy and stupid as most people (and corporate entities), fuck them.

It is far better to concentrate your energy on your own passions.  You only have one life.

harass them until they give you a job, it's better than hoping they pick your resume out of a stack of papers!

Did you mention that you might show up tweaked out on a regular basis and that you might steal things from time to time?  :shrug:

Cookie-cutter, factory-made, horseshit job.
Retail.  The front LINE, where the consumer himself reverses roles and becomes the corporate face, standing behind products he doesn't care about (not that they are any good) and quotes policy he doesn't question...and basically sticks it to his fellow consumers in the same way he can not stand when he isn't wearing the corporate mask, but is instead trying to buy some useless garbage and deal with some other generic corporate-mask-wearing schlep.

And so the consumer lives a double life, selling shit he doesn't need so that he can buy shit he doesn't need and losing any sense of individuality in the process, becoming one of Howard Beale's humanoids.

Get out of the box before it becomes a tomb.
