How did you manage that? They laying people off? Good luck finding a new one - how's that german job market? Rough as everywhere else?
What you call love was invented by guys like me, to sell nylons. You're born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one.

Well, I've just started a new job. It's customer service, as you can imagine not very ideal in terms of pay or shift pattern but I've been unemployed for a few months and I really need some cash.

Right now I am sitting on the computer at 3AM, sipping on strawberry milk and farting.

If I wasn't getting paid I'm sure I could put my job title as a privileged bum.

Right now I work for a company that specialise in one to one support for people with dementia. I am mainly working one to one with a client with dementia in a nursing home.
It's rather stressful as I get twelve bells knocked into me on a semi regular basis. But can also be really enjoyable.

My experience and knowledge is with learning disabilities though and thats the area of care I wanna get back into as it's what my personality is really well suited for.

And as it turned out, I got that Autozone job. And eventually, I ended up work nearly full before I left a few weeks ago. :help: Right now I'm a unemployed full-time college student living off student loans. :mrgreen:

I worked at autozone when I was 18. I hated every minute of it. It actually wasnt that bad of a job, but I didn't care much about cars and I cared even less about dealing with customers. Since I didn't like talking to people I just ended up spending most of my time in the back organizing stuff and doing inventory. Since I was the only guy there who paid attention to the math I learned in high school and college, I managed to maximize shelf space in the back and created a super efficient way to track the inventory. After a short while they just put me in charge of the money in the store and I even did some of those stupid phone teleconferences that the manager had to do with the regional.... guy. After a few months they tried to promote me to assistant manager or something like that. I had a 'Waiting...' moment where I visualized myself being like the manager in 10 years still working that shitty job, possibly becoming a fat black lady. My response to that was the same as it was in the movie: "Screw you and this job, I quit."

Of course I still worked for the rest of the day because I had an hourly wage and I wanted those extra dollars on my last paycheck, but I didn't bother to come back after that.
