  • (This is referring to the place that offered me a job)

    Seeing as I don't have that job I really need at this point, I might as well share my thoughts on my recent treatment. How dare you place all the blame on me. You said you would send me a letter with all the information, you never did. I left a message out of courtesy to inform you of what I was doing, which somehow didn't reach you. I get a phone call telling me there's two dates for the induction, one for last Friday and one for next Friday. Then when I turn up to confirm about this Friday, you tell me there was only one induction date. So why tell me there's two? You tell me you were trying to call me, I didn't get ANY phone calls from you.

    So how dare you sit there and tell me I'm in the wrong and accuse me of deliberately putting the phone down when in fact I came in THAT SAME DAY to leave a message. I'd have thought that one message would be enough, but no, and don't you dare talk to me like I'm nothing and then have me shuffled out the rear entrance of the building. I don't consider myself an emotional person but right now I feel emotionally drained, frustrated and panicked. I don't know what I'm going to do. A lot of you reading this might think 'Oh, it's just a job' but it's not 'just a job', it's something I desperately need. For everyone who bothered to read this, I'm sorry.

    And actually, just remembered this. When I got the phone call, I was asked about my depression since I had listed that as something I suffer from on my medical forms. Over the phone, she was really understanding, telling me they'll help me out and be there to support me if I need it. Then when I go in today, the same person turns round and uses it AGAINST me, saying I would be high maintenance and that it's not their concern. That's what bothered me too. Just feel incredibly worthless right now. In fact, the whole process was unprofessional. Was told I would be called back on a certain day, didn't get the call back until almost a full week later. My phone runs out of credit halfway through the call and I'm accused of deliberately putting the phone down. I couldn't believe it when they said that to me about my depression. All nice and supportive over the phone, then turn round and use it against me at this meeting. I kept it civil though, didn't cause a fuss but christ, I don't know how I managed to make it home without breaking down. I came so close to just breaking down in the middle of the street.

    I had two different people telling me two different things, so that confused me. A letter I was told they were sending with all the information on it, which never came. I check the post every day. My phone ran out of credit midway through the call, so I decided to go in the same day to leave a message, which...never got relayed to either of them, even though I gave their names, my full name and my contact number. So they accused me of not being committed. I even said that I've been feeling rather down as of late, which you know is related to what I listed on my medical forms - 'depression'. Something they used against me more or less, saying the exact opposite of what was said to me over the phone.

    I was sick that day, yet I still came in later that same day when I was feeling well enough. I wasn't well for the next few days, but nope, I'm not coming across as committed to them. The person I gave the message to NEVER passed it along to either of them. So, over the phone I was told by one manager, 'We got two times to do an induction, either tomorrow or next Friday'. So I called up when I was unwell, said 'Would it be okay to rebook for next Friday?', I leave a message the same day since my phone disconnected me. That was never passed along, so I went in on Thursday (today) and they told me I can't be offered a job as I missed the induction, BUT YOU TOLD ME THERE WERE TWO OPPORTUNITIES FOR AN INDUCTION. And so they invited me up, sat me down and then pretty much berated me. What used to be 'Oh we'll support you, it's alright' about my depression, was turned into a reason not to hire me. 'We're going to be really busy, can't have someone who's high maintenence'.

    I don't like to talk about such things but I felt like getting it out of my system.

    • Fuck em. Sleep for a bit and try to stay cool.

      S'what I do. Doesn't always work, but it does help a bit.

      • Work all around seems like bullshit lately. I understand people are only human, but get your management and shit together; telling you two dates was their fault. Sounds like a bunch of egotistical pricks Spence, who fucked up and are trying to shove it onto you. Don't feel down or worthless, since even you realize, this is them clearly being unprofessional. Do not feel worthless at all. Your last two oppertunities were the fault of well, reverse sexism and unprofessional blowhards that would suck to work for anyway. You don't need 'em. =) Just rest awhile.

        • After ye rest go watch something funny on Youtube for about 30 minutes. That does actually work with me, but it has to be something that makes you actually laugh, So no Ray William Johnson,Shane Dawson, or Fred.

          • So, a few days ago I broke my my big toe on my right foot. This is awkward for me because, due to my shitty left knee, I have to put a lot of my weight on my right foot whenever I walk or stand. It also throws my back (freshly diagnosed with mechanical damage last year) out of whack, causing that to hurt and seize, which in turn fucks up even more of my right leg because the swelling in my back essentially shuts down my right leg if it's bad enough. Apparently, I've lost all reflexes in that leg forever thanks to this.

            But I'm a big boy. I use over the counter pain killers rather than prescription strength (because otherwise I'd have been taking painkillers everyday for 12 years and would be needing a kidney/liver transplant in the next few years), and even those I use rarely, but they're strong enough that I can't take them for more than three days without seeing a doctor and I had to stop using them yesterday. They're codeine based, which is addictive, but my toe has recovered to a point where it just really, really hurts to move without actually stopping me moving. I just keep my weight on the ball of my foot, which is awkward, but it works.

            So of course I get a muscle cramp in the night - in the back of my right leg. Which, for those of you who've had those, means that my foot is being pulled in such a way that it's trying to put all the weight on the front - on the broken toe. Which means I'm back to hobbling and staring longingly at pain killers. I might actually have to go see a doctor now, which I really wanted to avoid because it's awkward getting there but with both legs and my lower back in pain, I need pain killers and paracetemol doesn't cut it. Unless you grind it up and snort it.

            Some days, I really feel like my body just hates me. Most annoying is it's made it impossible to continue physio and exercise. So I'm stuck for now.

            • That's not good. Good luck with the doctor.

              • Recommend cottage cheese for night time leg cramps . You don't have to eat much but take a little before you sleep, don't know how it works but it just does.

                • So I bought Biohazard Chronicles HD selection for the PS3 from Playasia in Japan. However I did it through Ebay. Anyway the item arrivied todayand they are asking for £13.12 customs charge. My dad is a retired postman so I asked him what this is. He basically said that they are charging me £13.12 because they had to look through my packet probably searching for drugs. Lol They are charging me to search through my belongings!! Unbelieveable. Anyway I am not paying this they can send it back. I know some people on here buy alot from Japan have you ever encountered this? What did you do about it? I messaged the seller and told him I refuse to pay for it and am going to have it sent back and want a refund unless he can cover the charges. Unbelieveable.

                    • Im in a foul mood right now. My mum went to court recently to dispute a road accident claim. basically a pikey on a moped crashed into the rear right side of my mums car as she was pulling out of a mini round about. yes true this would normally be her fault if the moped hadnt passed around a bus that was half way through pulling out of a bus stop, therefore my mum couldnt have seen this 16 year old riding a moped coming. well since the accident my mum decided to fight the 4 point and 500 quid she was being charged. she was told she had a good chance of winning. unfortunately the judge was a poor excuse for human flesh and decided not to listen to a word my mother said. the judge treated my mum like shit. our solicitor even said she had seen people accused of rape treated more fairly than my mum. all in all i am currently disgusted with the uk "justice" system and would like to give the judge of that hearing a serious punch in the face. this has cost us ten fucking grand, and my parents are also currently trying to put me through uni. oh did i mention the kid on the mo ped was basically pikey scum?

                      • Pikey?

                        • It's a slang term for the kinda poor people who sit on benefits and don't want to work or do anything other than get pissed and such. Don't use it around travellers and gypsies - it's essentially the same as using the N word to a black person, as far as they're concerned, and most people find having some teeth left helps in life.

                          • Is this trend still applies to the fact showing our anger towards something? If so...
                            Well I'm angry towards the libel provision in the newly applied law in the Philippines, the Cybercrime Law, which everyone should have heard right now. If not, well it's normally supposed to be a law meant to do good such as prohibit “cybersex", online child pornography, illegal access to computer systems or hacking, online identity theft, and spamming. But with the libel, the public will not have the right to criticize a politician, government or what not. If they do so, well you have the choice of paying a fine of $1.000.000 or 12 years of imprisonment. The worst part is if you "like" or "retweet" the comment or post that criticizes the politician/government, you'll be fined as well!
                            This is considered by many as the E-Martial Law of the country. And it is a bad view for the country since years ago, we fought to remove the Martial Law set up by the late ex-President Ferdinand Marcos.

                            • Yeah I've been reading some about this totalitarian bullshit. Lots of governments are trying to get shit like this passed because the internet is 'dangerous'.

                              I'd complain about it more...but don't want to be extradited for voicing my objection as shit like that happens in this day and age.

                              On another note, my hard drive died this week, so I was down to my back up hard drive using Linux.I didnt back up any of my work(was just going to purchase an external HD this week too, funny how life says "Nice try bitch!") so I purchased a new power supply(old one was like 5 years or so old I found out) and a new Hard drive and yesterday my second hard drive(I had two before I purchased my new one) died as well. What are the chances both Hard drives die within a few days of eachother?

                              So I lost all my unfinished toons(including Bio-Hazardous EP6), most of my scripts, misc software I've been downloading back, Steam, TF2, L4d, L4d2 and a lot of audio files I've gathered up over the years.Its the lost sound effects I'm annoyed at, finding decent audio SFX online is never easy.

                              But I"m back up with my new Hard drive, will get an external one next paycheck and gonan have to re-download another batch of lost software....dreading DL'ing the Left4dead games as they're like 30 and 50 gigs each and my connection is crap.

                              • Chavez won again in my country (Venezuela). My uncle was one of the people sending data to the CNE (national electoral council). He that Chavez must have done something in the night because Capriles was winning and then everything that came was just people voting for Chavez.
