I just don't know what to do any more. My job search has been so fruitless that now I'm being forced by the job centre to apply for retail jobs. I really don't want to do this. It is a horrible work environment and for various reasons (some of which I can't help) I really cannot do customer service. What makes things worse is I cannot think of any work other than what I'm contracted to do that I can move into. I feel completely useless.

I can't cope with this and everything else that's going with me right now. And I can't seem to find someone to talk to about it all...

I'm back again... Sorry.


A box fell off my wardrobe and it broke two of my figures. Really pissed as I won't be able to get replacements for them now.

Redundancy looks like a very real possibility now. I wish senior management would be honest about their plans for our site

I have the same problems in regards to customer service and retail work.

As a retail worker I can't blame you for not wanting to enter the sector. I'm only doing it as long as I need too. Not a minuet more!

My problem... Just finished styling the wig for tomorrow, I hate it, it looks shit. And theres nothing I can do about it now. I'm thinking of scrapping the whole thing, I don't really want to, I worked my procrasinating arse off on the dress yesterday, I don't want it to go to waste.

I agree about what is said about retail work. I had my first ever paid job last Christmas for the rush. It wasnt the customers that got me, but the supervisors. Being the newbie and one of the more polite and modest staff members most of them kept letting their frustrations out at me and generally made my working life unpleasant. At one time the ink for the receipts ran out and told one of them 3 times and got ignored every time (she was obviously listening each time!) then she got stroppy over it when a customer got annoyed (he left the building just as it ran out and left before I could ask if he wanted one).

They all shown a major cba attitude at times while I had to endure a social anxiety disorder and stress (and explained it a few times to the staff and made it clear that I am trying to get over it) that I had managed to hide for most of the time. They always tried to make it look like I was the lazy, disorderly one yet I managed to remain friendly, even smiling, throughout even the busiest times of the day. Unbelievable!

As for the present day, I dont mind hot weather but for the past few weeks it has been draining my energy quite alot.

GAH

ALL the fur fabric I bought is the wrong colour / quantities. EVEN the white is the wrong white and it won't match to what I've already done!

*sobs in a corner*

What have I done cosplay gods! What have I don't to upset you D=?!

*overly dramatic exit*

Iceclimber: if it's a job apply for it. Retail or not, someone has to do it. I never thought I'd succeed selling things, but I did. You just put on a face and work, because that's all it is and it's better than not doing anything.

I have worked worse jobs than retail. At least in retail you don't work in sunless factories with a noise limit just under the maximum safe decibels so the management doesn't have to provide you with ear plugs. Or where in the middle of winter their heating system 'isn't working'. Or where you're told to circumvent the safety on the pneumatic presses in order to use scraps of material and not waste anything.

Perhaps you should thank you're lucky stars they aren't forcing you to do factory work? Although I do get to say I've got experience as a light/heavy machinist lol

Proverbial of course.

I don't know what's worse: People asking stupid question on Expo/ComicCon websites like "Can I bring my working chainsaw as a prop?"* or people answering those stupid questions with "Yes, it's fine. I brought my real shotgun last year and had no problems."*

I have to assume trolling because I can't fathom that level of ignorance.

*=slight exaggeration for comic effect

Still tonsillitis.

I'm tired and want to curl up into a ball but I have cosplays I need to make for Aya.

Ran into some trouble concerning Student finance. Trying to get it resolved asap or else its no Uni for me

Very stressed over it and all I want is a hassle free University life! Havent been able to concentrate on much else lately and way behind schedule with cosplay.

Just general feelings of restlessness, frustration and confusion.

Job search has been crap. Everyone wants mangers... I can't do a management position with my experience. Typical.

Other stuff is just getting me as well.

Starting to get fed up with people questioning why I go to conventions and cosplay. It gets me out the house, I get to socialise and feel normal and it's not hurting anybody while I learn new skills - is that so wrong?


28 Aug 2013 - 20:46106624
Feels like everyone on my newsfeed is going to uni atm, and it's getting me down cause I was suppose to then they cancelled my course

And in a more serious note, my tablets I have to take (cause I'm still ill) are horrible and make me feel sick and make me hurt and give me indigestion and really just feel miserable in general. I'm so done being ill...

Signed in to rant here because this is something that really gets on my forks. People that use mental illnesses as an excuse for being rude. A relation of mine has severe social anxiety and cannot leave the house and never does she act so rude as certain people I have seen online. It really gives people with mental illnesses a bad name. In fact, online, she never mentions it because people do not need to know - only close friends and family who she needs understanding and support from know.

Agreed.

There seems to be a thing online* where people who are merely socially awkward, or antisocial, self diagnose with Aspergers or Autistic Spectrum Disorders as a way to justify their crappy behaviour, and gain some attention.

As well as the reasons you mention, it also annoys me as it means people tend not to believe people who have had proper medical diagnoses of AS/ASD, and assume they are horrible fakers.

*= It's quite prevelant in the American tabletop fantasy roleplaying scene and associated online forums, but this is the first I've heard of it in the UK cosplay community!
