Retail jobs will suck the life force out of a zombie.
My job sucks too. I work part-time for a party rental store. I deliver chairs, tables, tents, and the like, and keep up the warehouses and rental equipment, and maintenance on the delivery trucks. I make a pretty decent hourly rate for what the job is, but believe me, i have earned it. we run a small crew of about 2-4 guys depending on the need. for some reason, only morons are attracted to this place and i get stuck with some real lazy SOBs, so i end up doing most of the work anyways.
i think maybe the worst part, to me, is delivering and setting up all this crap for these super rich folks, and getting treated like garbage the whole time. i was asked to leave a customers house once by the butler bc my work shirt had a small hole it and a bleach stain.
Im 23, working on my bachelors degree in biology since my AS in comp. aided drafting/design didn't aid in finding a career. oh well. I like to work, and am grateful to have a job, but some decent coworkers would be nice. hopefully only a couple more years of this junk.
anyways, to all:
be grateful for your job, and take advantage of any opportunities for learning skills at your job(s). Work hard and be safe.
