Got sent home from work today

Not one as large as a lab here in my county :frowning:

You have to check with them.I just remember when I moved in 3 years ago they told me I can have a pet and they said I just would have to pay a deposit.

What country are you in?

They shouldn’t have sent you home - you’re new there - they could have spoken to you in private and asked you not to wear them again.

Wow, I would never travel 25 miles to work. That’s too much money to be wasting on gasoline.

I bussed for two hours a day back when I was pre-SZ and that was soul draining. Then again, I trust a bus more than driving b/c I hallucinate too much. Oh well.

@odiledecaray I am so sorry this is happening to you. I bet your uncle is republican, right? I hope you get the new factory job, less stress on you.

Well, I failed the drug test and now have to wait a week for someone to call about my script or something. I’m bummed because I could have started tomorrow.

Are you home already? How are things with your uncle and aunt?

They’re gone at the moment, but I don’t even want to see them when they return.

:confused: Can you hide?

Yeah, I’ll stay in my room.

So, they put me on the phones today. I had no idea what the f**k was going on and majorly freaked out. I went on my break, came back in to turn in my badge and quit.

I only made it through two weeks of training and gave up. I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t multi task, I couldn’t understand anything.

Hopefully I get the factory job after the lab contacts me about my failed drug test and I provide my prescription information.

You’ve done well - I can’t even get as far as an interview.

Oh man! I’m sorry! Do you feel good about your decision? Maybe it’s for the best, I couldn’t handle call centers either, I quit also on training.

How did your family react? They know already?

I do feel it was best for me. I was crying so hard. My aunt is ok with it, but doesn’t understand why I couldn’t handle it because I’m “so smart”.

She’ll tell my uncle that I have another job lined up and hopefully he won’t be furious.

Well it’s a good thing than, if you were so frustrated about it.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed for the factory job.


A factory sounds like way less stress and less multitasking. I would absolutely hate working at a call center too. Side note, if none of your customers see you, why would they throw such a fit over you wearing leggings?

Your new job offer is great news! Fifty miles of driving a day is a serious drain on cash. As for you uncle - he’s a douche, but he’s a douche you have to get along with. Just endure his assininity and keep a place in your mind where he can’t reach you.

Sounds like they’re harassing you, which isn’t a good sign. Why the f*ck would they care anyways if you’re working at a call center? It would be one thing to be strict on dress code if you were interacting with customers face to face…

Wondering if you and your daughter can get on welfare, or ssi/ssdi?
