I have a problem, guys...

Speaking of problems... I turned in my two-week notice at work today sad.gif

I made it clear at the interview that I needed consistent scheduling because of my disibilities. Also, I can't work late very often, but I can when there's an emergency (like whoever's supposed to close calls in sick or whatever). So they took it to mean catering to my needs to start, then trying to "ease me in" to oher schedules. Including future plans to work until 11 or so.

First of all, that's not what we agreed on when I was hired. Second, because of my stress levels, I can't do that. Third, I can't drive. To get to and from work, my only option is to be driven by my mom. She goes to bed at nine. She can't stay up late. And to pick me up at 11 would render her unable to get to sleep afterwards.

Also, some of my coworkers who were supposed to help train me in weren't doing a very good job. And some were too strict, sometimes two supervisors would give conflicting messages, so in the end, my stress levels couldn't handle it.

I keep having to remind myself that I'm not to blame here, and I shouldn't feel guilty for leaving. I just couldn't do what they were asking me. I still feel like I disappointed my boss, though, and he's really nice, and I hate the thought of that...

It's so hard to find a consistent schedule anywhere anymore. Retail is close to impossible.

That's why I never really wanted to work in retail like that, but I was getting a bit desperate. I do have some options lined up now, though smile.gif

So at work today, I went to use the restroom, and got to listen to two older ladies come in, and one was telling the other something like: "Just in time! I always seem to be doing okay until I get to the door, and then it's a struggle to make it to the toilet in time!"

Gee, thanks for the info, random stranger...

For the time it was released, the effects were really good, it's just that today's standards have changed. It's not the movie's fault, not by any means wink.gif

They just let me go a week early. I wasn't supposed to be done with work until next week. Then I got called into the office for the last 10 minutes of my shift to hear "You turned in your two-week notice, right? We've decided to do what we normally do with our employees and have tonight be your last day. You don't have to come in next week."

They ditched me. Thanks, Hobby Lobby... dry.gif

Though it might have been 16 to 18 years ago, I think it's far from outdated. A lot of recent movies can learn something from it. Funny thing is, effects never outdate me, they still have the same effect on me from the first time I ever saw it no matter how old the movie is.

For me it kinda depends on the scene. Legolas fighting? Rad. Gandolf going over a cliff? Not so much tongue.gif

But I will say, it does do a pretty dang good job holding up after all this time, probably always will wink.gif

So either everyone's been super busy, or my posting of that video scared everyone off tongue.gif

In other news, both my mom and I are out of work, almost broke, and getting jobs in this economy is not easy...

And why is it that job aplications want so much personal information? Like, "Before we even look at it we want personal history and blood samples of every person who's ever been in a five mile radius of you sense you were conceived" then "Oh, we changed our minds about hiring anyone, so you gave us all that information for nothing."

Like, it's a cashier position, not a nanny...

Also, one of my close friends got to see Hamilton, so she's all gushing about it, which is fine because I have lots of questions about it laugh.gif

Namely, how can people afford those ticket prices?.. hmm.bmp

I know exactly what you mean. The applications I filled in mostly say they want to keep your information for at least two years in their databanks. I usually don't care, while indeed they're not their business.

It's a long story and it's been two months now but I got screwed over in my cleaning job. So about two months ago I went to a client who was not at home at the time, so I called the company to ask what I had to do. They told me to contact the client and to wait 15 minutes for a reply. If I didn't got a reply then, I should call them back. So I did. 15 minutes later, I called the company back and they said, it was too bad for me and they didn't know about anything either and since they didn't had any replacements for me, they told me to go home. Again so I did.

Two days later I hear the RVA (the Belgian version of the national employment service) is looking for me to make sure I was actually at work. The day before they said they came to my client from Tuesdays to control me. I didn't hear no bell but I was there. The company I worked with told me this they were looking for me and they said they would come and see me the next day with my other client. By the time I was finishing up there, they came to see me. Frankly, I was going nuts because I was going to get controlled and if everything is not in order you might risk losing your wellfare. I thought that was it, that it was over. In the end it turned out to be a mere formality. It was: "Hi, how are you? Can I see your papers that proves your working here? Mind if I take a picture of that? OK, thanks, bye."

But then… when the company told me I could expect control from the employment service, they also told me that despite fairly postive reactions that I was indeed lacking experience (something that wasn't needed according the job offer) and that it might be better for me if I followed some sort of training. I was like: "fine, whatever you say." They said the VDAB (Flemish employment service) provides trainings for work, but not while you're at work, well it can but then you have to pay. If you're unemployed, the trainings are for free. So they told me they would let me go with a mutual agreement, meaning both parties take distance of their rights while ending the cooperation. So they didn't had to pay me and I ended up losing everything I had any rights to because I signed an agreement that said I left the company willingly to follow a training. Only the RVA doesn't like that because I was also living off of wellfare. This was a part-time job. Only 16 hours a week.

Yet, after I signed this, I began to wonder what it meant for my wellfare, so I went to my union and explained what happened. They were like: "ooh, RVA is not going to like this." Without realizing I signed my death sentence, in matter of speech. Then it turns out, my file was totally incomplete, papers the company should've filled in and delivered didn't happen, that my payment of September wasn't done and that I didn't got my resignation letter. The result of course was that I no longer had any right on my wellfare, that I had to go to the Public Centre for Social Wellfare and that I had to find a job within a matter of three weeks or so of the same amount of hours or more.

In the meantime the whole paper mill seems to have settled down and I no longer need to go to the public centre for social wellfare. Yet, I've sat there to start a file, which is confronting though. But I felt that lack of wellfare support and I see my accounts coloring deeper and deeper red. I live in an apartment that is way too expensive for what it is. I can pay the rent for maybe another or two months but after that I'm really at my wits end. So I really need to find a job, that can get me at least through the winter because the thoughts that have crossed my mind since the whole affair… There But For The Grace has been crossing my mind so many times, that I'm falling through the so-called safety net and that I would end up like Doc on the streets. It's not exactly a comforting thought, so I try not to think about it but I gotta face reality here.

I haven't worked since I crashed and burned-out four years ago. That wasn't exactly according to plan, but nothing ever did go according to plan since 2012 and I had to deal with everything on my own ever since. It took me four years to actively start looking for a job in a new sector after years of guidance and counseling and I ended up being screwed over. So now I'm seriously reconsidering of going back to sales and I found some interesting job offers but I also want things done on my terms now and not just go in the direction you're expected to go into. That's why I already decided against two jobs, even if I contacted them first because I can't see or feel it or that I have to adjust my life too much for it. Maybe that's not a good thing but I didn't took care enough for myself last time and the result is a burn-out that has been lasting four years now.

This can either go two ways: either I find a job now or in that next few weeks that I can keep for a while so 2020 can become a good year, that I can move to something cheaper and I can forget about everything that has happened in the past seven years so I don't have to carry that into the new decade or I go totally broke with a very real chance that I end up in the streets. Sometimes I can't help but think: "What if that needs to happen?"

Sorry this is getting long but this pretty much my story so far.

Burnout is a tough hole to climb out of. In my job, it usually hits 3 times in a 25 year period. Most often, sometime between year 15 and 20, it hits and doesn't go away. You just learn to keep pushing until the end.

Yeah, especially when you got no one to go to.

It's so crazy actually that burn-out was mentioned in MacGyver twice: Obsessed and Early Retirement. It goes back all the way to 1987-1988 and only now in the past seven years or so there has been this outbreak of burn-out.

I don't know the situation in the United States but in Belgium it's bad. There are so many twenty-something people fresh out of high school or college who burn up at hardly the age of 25. I was 28 when I crashed, I'm 33 now. At this point the past four years feels kind of wasted. And then there is the nay-sayers and the not understanding of others. It's not something you choose, it just happens if you don't take of yourself.

It's a long sad story but when personal matters and job related matters become untenable, you'll eventually crash if the situation never changes. That's what I've been through. Your body says: "Stop," and he means it and that's when you got learn to listen again with your heart instead of your head.

Anyway: I got a job interview in the morning and the interim office is not exactly close by. Strange, because the job is in the town where I live. Guess, I'll be taking the bus then.

That's putting it a little mild.

Anyway I've got another job interview on Friday. The one today was merely an interim office I had to go to. They wanted my information and would make contact with the store the job offer came from and they would notify me in case I can go to the interview. Meanwhile I'm registred at their office at the same time. Shrewd way of getting people too, I might add.

@macgyvergod Yeah, I have a tendency to either overstate or understate everything...

@barry Happy Thanksgiving biggrin.gif

So the wifi went down for a couple of hours, and I got bored, so I opened an Avatar Maker app (dog edition) and started messing around. My mom thinks there's something wrong with me...
