I feel like I've reached some sort of critical mass w/r/t firing people (er, sorry, "releasing"), where if I have to do it ever again, I'll have irreparably damaged my soul. Today was one of the most stressful days I've had in a very long time, and left m vaguely wondering whether auto-defenestration isn't maybe a good idea. BUT HEY, AT LEAST I GOT A FIFTY DOLLAR BONUS

You know, it gets damn disheartening when you greet every customer with a friendly hello and a good half of them don't even respond, because, I dunno, you're sitting behind a counter and therefore not really a human being? I know this is minor as customer service compaints go, and not everyone wants to talk while they're getting a movie, but man, it is straight up rude to just ignore someone who has said hi to you.

I am very poor at present, but fuck working in retail ever again in my time on this earth.

Ugh, hugs to both of you. Retail is the worst. I did it in high school and college and have been running the fuck away ever since.

oh my god I have the next eleven days off.  you know that feeling where you've been tense for so long that the realization that you no longer need to be tense makes you feel like you're going to drop to the floor like a marionette?  yeah, that's happening right now.

Goddamn, where do I get a job that gives 2 weeks off for holidays? I have Monday off and was pretty excited a few days ago when they decided they'd give us Jan. 2nd off as well.

Next week is always the busiest week of the year, and we have off Monday. And I had to take a half day Tuesday for a doctor visit.bI took a half day today anyway, so now I won't be at work from 12:30pm today until 12:30 Tuesday and that rules. Except for the part where I'll have to manufacture 30 devices in three and a half days. OVERTIME!

Sorry to hear that. I'd go round the twist if I didn't get the odd break from it. I am very fortunate though - I get 40 days plus public holidays per year. But if it's any consolation, you probably earn 2 or 3 times what I do.

This is all we get off, but I'm using the last of my vacation time to take off Tuesday and Wednesday as well, so I get a nice five day weekend followed by a two day week followed by another three day weekend.

Two weeks sounds pretty rad, though I imagine I'd start to settle into that whole routine where I never bother changing out of my pajamas or showering or leaving the house that I get into whenever I go a while without working.

Hot damn, I thought my 15 days plus holidays (which is just the one day of the holiday, generally) was pretty decent. Next you're going to tell me that you get a wage increase every once in awhile!

Because Christmas is on a Sunday, mon and tues are both public holidays (yay, Boxing Day!) which means that my one day a week job which is usually on Tuesday is on Thursday this week. The bloke has from today until after new years. Yay govt jobs. And that's the US govt. So Jeb, there's your answer. Get a govt job and your holidays are pretty sweet.

Well, yes, there is that I guess...but *apart* from that, it's a good plan, right?

Not having temp assignments in too long is driving me up a wall! I got to the final two (but no farther) in a few too many jobs for my tastes last year, and it's been so discouraging. I interviewed for two temp, maybe temp-hire positions yesterday, and hopefully one of those will pan out into something meaningful, because I really, really, really want to be gainfully employed. My self-esteem is not handling this process well.

Sorry to hear it, Lucy! Temping is no fun at all, but waiting around for temp assignments in the worst.  Much Love

I don't mind the temping itself, somewhat miraculously, but the limbo is the absolute worst. I'm ready for a perm spot now, for sure.

Back in the dotcom boom, my wife wrote a piece about Temp Slave, a zine of dissatisfaction and time-theft that sort of picked up where a similar SF zine of the 80s and early 90s, Processed World, left off.

Not sure if there's anything like that around these days, but they can be fun to read & contribute to. Writing or sketching about your experiences under an alias (a form PW published as "Tales of Toil") can be a good way to exercise that self-esteem. I speak from experience!  Cool
