I went and applied at a telemarketing company today... Gods I must be getting desperate. After that I got 3 calls from telemarketers... Ugh, if I get the job I'm gonna kick my OWN ass.

May the flame on your balls not be too hot

well this wasn't recent but two years ago I started working for the government....now I realise just how bad the system can be and I have also realised there is not a damn thing I can do about it.

Ahhh we all think we can change the system until we are in it...then it is too late to back out.

My most recent dumb decision was to look after my parents house for two weeks...not only will I not be able to smoke for two weeks (yes my parents do not know I smoke so I have to give up so their house won't smell like cigarettes) but they also have a psychotic dog that likes biting my ankles...:rolleyes: not my brightest idea.

And you'd be right!!!
I'm working on an assistance phone platform for the summer and it's hell. The people who work there permanently just go crazy, they all seem so weird, and alone, and in their own world of loneliness. And anyway being on the phone with people and trying to sell them things you despise is just the worst thing ever to do!! You get mad people who yell at you, people that hang the phone on your pre-written dumb introducing speech, or old people talking hours long of their life and you can't get your work done. Really don't accept this kind of job! simple friendly warning.

mine happens just about every weekend, i go out and say "im going to have a couple of drinks (good idea) about 4 hours and ALOT of drinks latter, i feel like censored (gone bad)

{off topic} if you think being a working in telemarketing makes you crazy, try being a bill collector......

You can't avoid pain by fencing yourself from it.
Some times you need the help of others more than anything else
But you have to let them close enough to help......
People want to be needed, I found that out too

It all went wrong when i got busted for pulling a sickey and get sacked cos i'd only just started and was still on probation. ubbangel

since when did you go out every weekend for a few drinks?

Once in a while you get shown the light
in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
