Yeah I always think about how my quality of work and efficiency affects the rest of the team I'm with. I hate feeling like I've made something harder for the next guy to deal with. It ends up creating resentment beween members and just simply sucks. I'm about to hit my second year mark at this job on the 13th of October here. Hard to believe. It went by smoothly. I feel like a higher grade job might open up soon. A couple guys are talking about moving departments which will leave their spots vacant. It's a bit more challenging with added responsibility but that's kind of the point in moving to it. I want to learn and grow opportunities as I see them. Just have to watch and wait for mow.
Heh, my last day I came in unscheduled because a manager asked me to and another manager was talking about shoes and bags for like an hour so I called her out on it. She got upset and threatened to send me home. The other manager told her she couldn't make me leave and I spent the next four hours getting paid to do absolutely nothing. It was hilarious.
I never worked front counter, so any negativity directed at me was from coworkers. I used to be a lot nicer, McDonald's made me hateful towards everything and everyone. Fortunately I found MLP and that tempered my anger and hatred. Quiting put me on the right path i wish I'd done it sooner. As for future plans, I'm not the management type. Hands on work is my passion. I'd like to get into the high end welding, structures and stuff. Those jobs make more than enough for me to be content in life. I'd like to see myself making between 75,000 and 100,000 a year.
Yeah there were moments like that at mine too. Idiots didn't even maintain a proper first aid kit. No burn cream or band aids in the entire store. But they had tampons and shaving cream cause that was more important somehow. I broke out in hives once and they still wouldn't let me leave early. I worked a whole overnight, and when the Store manager got there I told her I was leaving and she got pissed because one fucking tray wasn't cleaned. I told her to go to hell. Three weeks later I was gone. I've been welding for as a job for a little over a year now.
That's a hell of a way to need a new job. I'm not so much patient as I am stubborn. Which has led to me not becoming aware of how bad a situation has gotten beforr I need to abandon it. I worked at a McDonald's for over three years because I was too stubborn to quit. I felt like leaving meant that it had beaten me. They make me feel like I wouldn't succeed anywhere else and I hadn't seen just how badly it was destroying me.
Welding happened to be one of the only things in school that I was naturally good at. I live Near the Mississippi River and Interstate 80. We've got the Hon/Allsteel HQ, John Deere, and the Rock Island Arsenal for Big manufacturers, plus tons of smaller places strewn everywhere between. Only problem is I need a weld certification to move up in my field. I am working on that though. Just need money and time.
I got the Atlas ending, but not the center of the galaxy ending. The Atlas ending is pretty disappointing. I wanted something to happen after all that effort, not some high-falootin' "there is no story" nonsense.
