Well I know that this may be considered spam or whining but really I just need a place to vent. Just to clear the mind really so I'm going to start when things started to turn south.
So about 7-8 months ago I thought things were going all right with the exception of breaking up with my girlfriend. Yeah I made the decision to end it after almost 10 years of being together, engaged, and all that. The last year with her was fine but it opened my eyes to a future I didn't feel comfortable with. Wonderful lady, just not the one. So back on track, We broke up, I stayed in the house (we rented) and with an idiotic notion that I'd be able to pay all the bills.
About a month of living on my own I was told about a job that would be the same position (Warehouse Supervisor) but would pay better. I was making around $19 an hour and this new job would pay $27 an hour. Well it turns out the reason most likely was they were asking me to forge safety documentation on their Pressure testing machine. Needless to say with pressure ratings of 15000 as a mawp and being asked to just simply forge it, I left without the ability to go back to my old job.
So a month goes by looking for a job to pay bills, rent, whichever. Can't find anything so I begrudgingly move back home. I wish I could say it was for the best but the last time I spoke to my father we nearly came to blows. This move was probably the worst choice. The last time I spoke to my father was a few years ago when my sister passed away she was suppose to pick me up for dinner at her place. See, she was going to pick me up but I called here saying I got stuck working overtime so go on without me. Well she got into a car accident and because I told her not to pick me up my father blames me for it and has called me a murderer multiple times for it. So now I deal with hearing those comments on a daily basis.
So about a month and 1/2 later I find another Warehouse Supervisor job. I was pretty stoked about it, hell, I was happy. Shortly in though (around 1 month) I had two close people pass in a car accident and about 3 weeks later a friend committed suicide. Needless to say a pretty hard month. Didn't miss a day of work cause I see this job as my ticket to get out of here.
So I reach my 3 month probation. I was feeling down so I bought myself a gift. The monday after I buy my gift (Feb 3rd) I get pulled to the side for a meeting and it turns out everyone in the building likes the kind of worker I am. Show up early, don't complain about overtime, job, weather, what have you. Turns out they may have hired too many people or so I was told but they like me and no one has had a complaint about my work ethic. So they tell me that if I want to stay I should have a daily log to write my going on through out the day. Done, no problem. That is, till today when my car decided to break down on the way to work. Again, yeah shitty luck but hey, it could be anything I keep telling myself. Turns out even after getting my car a tune-up, oil change, and new winter tires at the end of November my cars engine completely kicks the bucket... So I'm told it'll be around $6000 for a new engine and service and if that's not worse I gotta prove my worth so to speak at a job and somehow get to and from work( Live a half hour out of town).
Welp, that's about it for my whining. Apology's for anyone who wasted their time reading the rambling complaints of a stranger and sorry if this is considered spam. Just needed some time to write and clear the mind. I know for sure others have a lot worse going for them and I should be thankful for what I have. I just feel like I'm going mad and have no one to talk to so why not the users of Giantbomb.
Thanks for letting me vent. Also, please, please don't buy a Pontiac Sunfire. Just don't...
