Storytime: Quitting My First Job
Literally just before I started writing this blog I quit my first real life job.
I did it over email because honestly I’m wayy to pussy to do it face to face or over the phone… lol.
I would cry and stutter and probably have a panic attack if I did it in person and when I tried to do it this morning I ended up just saying “I’m not coming into work today” …which doesn’t really qualify as me quitting, so I thought the only option is email.
I feel bad because I didn’t give any notice or anything but, I just felt really miserable waking up at 6am every morning, working the best I could while getting yelled at because “I’m too slow”, or because I did something wrong.
I also couldn’t stand embarrassing myself in front of customers because I can’t control the way my body reacts to the smell of Clorox. (I gag, like full on GAG)
I hated that I couldn’t get acrylics for the first time and especially hated that my $30 worth of piercing and pain was slowly going away because I couldn’t wear earring and I’d always forget to put them in when I got off of work. (I’m pretty surprised my ear hasn’t caught an infection yet from my piercings closing and reopening every week)
Although there are a lot of negative than positives with this job I still am thankful I went though it because now I know that:
I want to go back to school and get a career because I never want to work a job like that ever again.
I’m a really slow person. (I feel like I’m going fast but according to another reality I’m moving in slow motion.)
I’m always the target person everyone wants to bully. (yep lol)
I can’t do math in my head. (Customers stop giving me coins late and expecting me to have a huge mathematical brain to calculate all that shit, like tell me before I open the draw!!!!!)
I can now communicate with people better I have people skills! YAY!! That’s probably the best thing that came out of that job
… and the free food. lol
Anyways I’m taking the rest of my summer off because I’m going to school next semester and cannot deal with the stress of not having a break. I mean I already lose my mind after having a break now imagine not having one. I’d probably be rocking back and forth with a cup of Starbucks coffee hissing at anyone who comes near me. lol
So yeah anyways thanks for reading,
How’s your summer going so far? Any first job stories?
P.S. and yes I fucking used the shit outta those meme faces! hashtag no regrats !!
