I just want to let you know you're a precious person, and even though things seem bleak, you'll have an opportunity to escape this stuff soon. If I can help cheer you up in any way, let me know.
You’ve already helped plenty. Messages like this make me close my eyes and imagine i’m leaning on a good friend.
Manager K and J have been fired, and manager T is quitting. All the managers that pretty much prevented me from being fired are now gone. I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye to K and J. For all the crap they put me through, they had their good moments, and I will miss them. T and I managed to say goodbye, and I almost started to cry. He hoped the best for me, and so do I for him.

thank you vince mcmahon this was precious
Your human faves could NEVER.
Just saw your post... that's a lot of pressure you're under honey. Have you thought about working for Disney; specifically, in the parks? Most people get hired with little to no prior work experience (like me). There are pages of ads looking for roommates to fill open rooms and split rent costs, some of which are close enough you wouldn't need a car. The insurance is great. And you'd start out with at least one flesh and blood friend here <3
I applied for the Disney internship twice during my college years and didn’t get accepted - and to be in a place so far away from my family… it is scary. But at the same time, wouldn’t working there be a dream come true? I just doubt it would come so easily for me. But we are going to Disneyworld next month on vacation. at the very least, during my stay, I could try and ask a cast member how they got their start.
thank you so much for talking to me. i’m not feeling better, but i’m not feeling worse.
It's hard, having to rely on your parents for things. I've been unemployed for nearly a year now myself for various reasons. That doesn't mean you're a burden or useless, though. You're a good person and you're trying your best, and that's all anyone can do in the end.
I just wish I didn’t have to rely on them. They have 3 kids out of the house, I’m still around. They deserve better than me. My head won’t let me think I’m anything but waste. But I am sincerely grateful that you’re reaching out to me. I really am beginning to calm down.
That was the first reply I’ve gotten in two years. Two whole years, no one else wanted me. Not even another retail place.
I have no applicable skills, I don’t go on the ‘important’ websites that resumes want, I only speak English, I have a major I only applied for because it was easy, I dropped out of graduate school, I have no talents - I can’t even write anymore, I have no flesh and blood friends I can call and hold, I’m about to be kicked off my parents health insurance, my car is falling apart, the only job I could get is part-time at a maddening mundane retail store that is now looking for the slightest excuse to fire me, and all day almost every day I sit at home alone watching netflix and playing video games so I can try to escape the fact that I am a complete failure at this thing called life.
I wish I was dead. Not that I have the will to harm myself, but that I wish some force would end me so I would stop being a burden on everyone.
