Can only imagine how many people have terrible jobs. Or worse, no job.

I used to think I was over working at restaurants, until I started working at a 7-4 office job that was a call center as well, a help desk position where people call in and need help fixing whatever problem they're having with their computer.

I fucking hated it and quit after 3 months. The main parts about the job that I didn't like were the getting up early, hours feeling long, being stuck at a desk where your exact time is monitored and staring at a screen all day.

Gone back to restaurants for now and I don't take it for granted, I'm working around 30 hours a week making more than I was working full time at the office and I sleep in/stay up late every day. But the subtle part about it I like the most is that you can actually talk to people around you and don't have to sit down all day. Shit was starting to make my back hurt more with their garbage old chairs and was giving me anxiety when you stare at something and focus on it all day then snap back into the real world.

I have no idea how you guys do that shit at work.

I'll have Treasury on my ass for missing uploading a file in time. 

Lose focus for a second and Accounting will break your legs for misplacing a dollar.

Worst of all, I actually enjoy working in corporate. The fuck is going on, here?

I tried the corporate route in accounting and it just wasnít for me. Maybe it was the company I worked for but I was just miserable there. I switched to governmental accounting and I couldnít be happier. I had to take a pay cut, but it was completely worth it because of the work/life balance and benefits they offer. 

Actually I think one of the toughest jobs Iíve ever had was FedEx

Yeah, I worked in a factory 11 hours a day before, was waaaay more stressful than corporate. At my company there are great opportunities to advance, so I'm happy here.

Damn supervisors always got their eyes on me. I'm a mailman so the majority of my working day is spent outdoors and away from the bosses which is great, but I also have a dumb barcode scanner on me that tracks all my movements. If the scanner doesn't move for 10 minutes the supervisors get an alert back at the office. I get two 15s and one 30 minute break. The 30 minute one is lunch and is automatically deducted from the hours worked after 6 hours on the clock regardless if the the break is actually taken. It's common there is not enough time to deliver everything and be back at the prescribed hour if the breaks were to be taken. Besides those "breaks", if there are legitimate reasons why my scanner's GPS shows I didn't move for a while, and there often are, I will be questioned as to why it didn't move every fucking time. If I'm ahead of schedule on my route I have to walk around aimlessly or take a drive around the area so that the scanner doesn't report that it's idle. No down time at the ol' post office. Good thing is no bosses are actually physically looking at or talking to me the vast majority of the time.

Damn, some of you guys having monitored work days seems rough. I think i spend 70% of my day alone, wasting time and up until a year ago i was fine with it, now i have to show up 6 days a week (still here alone), waste an even greater amount of time and i hate it, but i'm too stuck in my slack off ways to take the offers i get here and there.

Are you a union member? Talk to them about it because if you finish ahead of schedule you shouldn't be penalised for efficiency.

Yea straight up, my parents are mail carriers and they go home once they're done, regardless of time left, and aren't really allowed to waste time.

Yes, I'm a union member. I don't get penalized for finishing a route early, but every route is timed to be 8 hours. In reality route times are wildly inaccurate. Like +/- 2 hours inaccurate. If I don't take the entirety of the 8 hours it can lead to changes in the route.


Your parents are career carriers which is a different position than mine. I'm what's called a CCA which is what you have to be before you become career. Most career people are on what is called Work Assignment wherein all they have to do is their own route and leave whenever they're finished. I, on the other hand, can be made to take more mail out or help other carriers if I come back too soon. I'll also probably be given more work to be done the following days on top of the full route that I'm already doing. We're all guaranteed at least 8 hours for a full route no matter how light or heavy the mail is. If a carrier is leaving before the 8 hours on the clock is up then they're doing it of their own volition. Therefore it is always in my interest to do at least 8 hours. If that means driving around the block in circles every hour, then that's what I'll do. I'll have to come up with some bullshit to explain myself, but as long as I don't go into overtime because of excessive breaks, then there is no real problem. If I misjudge my timing and come back to the office 30 minutes late then I'm at risk of punishment.

Damn okay then,pretty strict!

Unless you happen to spot a supervisor on your route I'd say you're good with the time killer plan you run with.

I was a CCA once for the post office too.  Those bar scanners used to drive me nuts. If I forgot to scan it my supervisor would call and bitch at me, and Im like cmon dude just let me work. I would also get yelled at everyday for not delivering all the packages, which was tough at times because itís hard to remember every street and house number for each package i got. I would try to write them down before I would start my route but my supervisor would just yell at me for wasting time.  I also didnít have a legit work schedule. I was on call every morning so Iíd have to wake up and wait between 6 and 9 oíclock just to see if they would call me.  Some weeks I would work 6 days other weeks just 1 or no days at all, which fucking sucked.
After working at fedex, UPS, AND the post office I got tired of that and once I finished school I just went my separate ways.

I sniff my own butthole all the time
