Yup. I'll be leaving my McDonalds position very soon, in fact.

I watched the other bartender get yelled at tonight by a 9-year-old girl demanding food menus. I want to live in a world where that's not okay.



First: LOVE your name... :) Used to love those books as a kid.

Secondly, sadly, there is no part of the world where yelling at your server is not ok. Bad world.

I gave my notice last week and man are people acting shady. Kind of like the "you are dead to us now" mentality. Oh well, more confirmation that I'm making the right move.

So miserable that I actually didn't care if it made my credit score go down since my PLUS loan for next year was already approved...bleh.

I actually reduced my hours from full-time to part-time because I'm terrified of how depressed my job is making me. Being homesick in addition to that does not help. Right now I'm trying to just keep my head above water and keep everything as simple as possible until I'm out of this purgatory. I really need July to get here so I can see my family(haven't been home in over a year, have not seen my parents, friends, etc), relax, detoxify myself of my job and feel better already. I try so hard to feel OK these days, but it's like my job is a 50-pound weight that keeps making me sink deeper and deeper into my depression all over again on Monday mornings, no matter how much I struggle.

But I'll soldier on. That's all I've got. It helps to know that there are people out there who know my pain.


Sorry. Remember, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. A bright expensive light.

Are they at least giving you less work? I actually started getting more work and responsibilities when I let my supervisor know I was leaving.


Definintely less work. More like no work. LOL.

Same with me. I let them know I was leaving on Tuesday. But I haven't had much work for a while anyways.

I'm here another 9 weeks or so. I like this place a lot and might try to come back here with my JD, but it's hard not to check out a little when you get admitted ED in December and don't leave town until the following August.

I'm an associate at an accounting firm and let one of the partners know I'm going to law school yesterday and would need to be gone by July 1. I was almost hoping to get walked immediately or told to leave sooner, but no and I've still got to work for five weeks...ugh. Unexpectedly, everyone's being super nice to me now. I think they see potential future referral source written all over me.

Good luck with that...since my replacement showed up a week ago training her has been ROUGH! She's totally lost, turns out she lied about her background and qualifications on her resume, and to cap it all off she's making $3/hr more than me when I was refused a raise due to a company pay freeze. Oh. And I'm not allowed to use the rest of my vacation time. Sooo looking forward to being done in a week.

40 more days, not counting the weekends and the week vacation I am taking. I was sad about leaving my job, but I just got a passive aggressive email about accidentally leaving my water bottle in the front office and about me being at work sick this week even though everyone in the office knows I have tons of work to get done before I leave. I am just thankful I sit in a corner by myself.

The corporate office culture in a nutshell:

Neither hard work is rewarded nor sloppy work punished. All events that occur or decisions that are made are products of a random, emotional, and irrational bureaucracy whose authority may not and can not be challenged. Outside of this, the only thing to do is kiss ass and wait your turn.

oh, hard work is rewarded alright...with more work that is significantly above one's pay grade (with no raise or promotion, obviously).


If I could only get work that is at my pay grade, rather than below. My manager is so out of it. She gives me these menial busywork assignments and expects them to take me two weeks to complete, and I can get them done in two hours. It's been over a year here since I've worked on an actual, meaningful project.
