How Many Times Can I Break Til I'm Shattered?

I am absolutely despondent. No matter what, it seems as though I'm entirely incapable of holding down any kind of job position. I am either sick, panicking, or without a capable memory of doing the work required. No matter how hard I try, my general tolerance for my interpersonal skills has a short fuse.

I have literally reached a stage of having NO idea what to do from this point forth. The stress from the illnesses combined with the stress of the job may throw me over the edge.

So disappointed with myself.

Hey babe,
You were the smartest kid in our high school, and you're waaaay too smart for that job, call centers blow, and it was call center catylst that sent me to Asia. Stick it out for another month or so, and then quit when the spring hires for tourist season come around. You're not incapable of holding down a job, it's just not been the right job. You need something more creative and challenging, and if you can't find such a thing, you need to create your own opportunity.

Chin up, it's not a personal failure at all-And alot of great minds quit menial jobs until they found their place in the world.

Have you thought about registering for subsitute teaching? Or putting up flyers around the univeristy offering to tutor or edit papers? I used to make extra money doing that.

I just honestly think that call center work is soul sucking and that you're too good for it.

Thanks for the pick me up Amanda,

Call centers do blow in every way, shape, and form. I had managed to avoid them up until this point in time, but they finally caught up with me. I'm just not up to the whole process of someone bitching me out 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week.

The editing papers thing isn't a bad idea - I swear these days I feel about as intelligent as a crusty old sock.

I do need to create my own opportunity, but in terms of getting anything together? The wheels are spinning but my plans aren't falling in place.

Hopefully I'll be able to stick it out long enough to get a tourist job, but apparently the number one reason that no one who pays above minimum wage will hire me is my incapability to work in customer service for more than a two month period. Oh joy oh bliss.

Anyways, thanks for the pick me up message - I really needed a friendly kick in the ass right about then.

Oh man,
I was totally not wanting that to sound like a kick in the ass, I just wanted you to know that quitting(if, in fact you do quit) doesn't reflect on you as a person at all, but rather how lame call center work can be. Seriously, I'm one hundred percent certain that within a few years you will be rockin some amazing job somewhere.

You are apparently good for my ego/amusement. Explain to me why we don't hang out more when in similar parts of the world??
