How long have you been there? Is it more the work or the people?

The work and two days

Can hope there’s an adjustment period and then gets better. Maybe you come on board at a tough time for them.

Give it three weeks and if you aren’t satisfied with it at the end of that, quit. No reason to stay at a job you hate any longer than necessary. But before you do that, consider your other prospects. I would start applying to other positions as soon as possible. You can keep working at the job you hate while you do that.

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. ~ Spock

Thanks for the advice

The news is so shitty, it’s all bad news bad news bad news. “Oh, look, somebody died! Here’s that for your day!”

Whoever thought this was a good idea should be abacinated.

I really do not appreciate someone starting a PM thread with me to throw accusations, insults, and forum drama from here and elsewhere in my face and then exiting the topic before I can even say one word in response. Total dick move.

I don’t like to broadcast my personal problems around here, (picture a dumpster fire about to go over Niagra Falls) but they require more time of me than dealing with the drama around here. Sorry about that.

For a job that we don’t get paid for, we mods take a lot of crap and abuse you never see.

Sorry you deal with hooligans on what should be a pleasant corner of the internet when life is rough.

Ah that takes me back to Lord Zerome’s thankfully brief stint on here. When he started not one, not two, but three PM threads to insult me, I laughed it off because it was clear from day 1 he’d be banned in no time. I was right.

Your situation sounds like much less of laughing matter. I hope that gets sorted out.

I’m glad I never “met” him. Did read through his post history and found it lacking.

I really just want to know how you got the personal pictures of somebody you’ve never met. Does Zerome know you have his pictures?

Handman, those are clearly two different people.

Anyway, I wanna bitch about how hard it is to make any social connection irl and get a girlfriend. Dunno what to say about it, but there it is, that’s my bitching.

If it’s too hard, you’re either trying too hard or not at all. Keep trying new things and putting yourself out there, but don’t force it and don’t try to be anyone you’re not. That’s the advice I have.

I don’t know if it’ll make you feel any better, but my first crush died a long slow painful death from a car accident when I was 13. That makes relationships hard for me, because most people, when they go on a date, want to make everything as overly happy as possible and pretend that nothing is wrong. Either that, or they get their dating advice from far too many rom-coms. You may be having a hard time getting a girlfriend, but look at the bright side. The only problem you’re facing in romance is just being alone. You don’t have to deal with both loneliness and trauma like I do on most days.

I have altered Lucas’ visions. Pray I don’t alter them any further.

There’s this one Reddit thread I had a lot to say in in a community I spend a lot of time in (Reddit said it was the one I used the most last year) but I couldn’t post anything at all because the OP blocked me. Posted all my comments in another thread because I’ll be damned if this petty fucker’s gonna stop me. Reddit, why are you like this? That’s not how blocking is supposed to work.

In which case it is a blessing that I can never become the president of the United States.
Jokes aside there was only one button, I assume the train driver just had a bad day.

It’s annoying to see people say “Gen Z is cringe”. That’s a straw man right there. The dimwits on TikTok are a vocal minority. The Gen Z’ers (me included) who act sensibly and dislike this behaviour are the silent majority.

Yeah, as a zoomer myself, I definitely agree.

I think one of the biggest problems with our modern online world is that you get to hear the opinions of literally everyone. That might not sound like a bad thing, but “everyone” includes some really stupid people, and unfortunately stupid people tend to be much more noticeable than normal people. I try to avoid the most dimwit-packed places on the internet (TikTok, Twitter, Instagram), but even then I see godawful opinions way too much.
