You lucky, lucky bastard.

Maybe you do hate your job - but some of us don't even have that much.

What you need is something to look forward to, like your next shag.

How long are you on crutches for?

Martini
10-04-2005, 23:35:43
They said a week. i think its fine now but walking on it is still a challenge. i am going to work on Thurs nite tho,dont care if i have to hop behind the bar, this place is driving me fucking insane.

Cruddy
10-04-2005, 23:37:00
Couldn't you "borrow" a wheelchair from casualty and zip about on that?

Martini
10-04-2005, 23:39:04
:lol: i wish

As for the job, this is the first time ive been properly employed. And thanks to my wonderful caring friend im prob going to have to leave it cos i wont have a place to stay in liverpool :(

Martini
10-04-2005, 23:43:22
meh, its worth a try but they barely know me, would be v weird.

why the fcuk didnt i get a degree????the twats here cant even take care of themselves but the government is giving them massive handouts just to pester me for drinks all night.

One piece of advice alsie - dont drop out. and dont think casual sex is the way to go. and dont leave home on a whim, you need a family.

I'm trying for a degree as a mature student through the Open University.

There's hope for you yet.

Didn't have the chance as a young man - but I'm not quitting.

Youth hostels might be the way to go? Not sure if they work the same way there as here, but it'd do shortterm until you could figure something else out.

alsieboo
10-04-2005, 23:47:01
So if you're not staying in Liverpool, where will you go?

protein
10-04-2005, 23:47:54
I was left to fend for myself at 18 and ended up serving drinks to over-privileged student twats for a living too. I sympathise.

Martini
10-04-2005, 23:55:29
thanx protein, glad to know other ppl have to put up with this crap too.

alsie, i wouldnt worry bout the future :lol: I was constantly on the move when I first started posting here, there are plenty of floors out there for someone willing to look :)

Its the loss of job that bothers me cos for a few months i actually had a purpose. but nevermind.

JM^3

Asking for help is a vital skill when you are down on your arse. Ask, the worst they can say is "no".

And they might just say "yes". At least for a couple of weeks till you find your own spot.

There are other jobs, don't get too dispirited

Jon Miller

u really want to know? nothing, nowt whatsoever.

not exaggerating. i would like some parents that gave a shit, a friend that didnt blame me for dumb internet escapades, blahblahblah.

i have no qualifications beyond a levels.

the one good thing is im still young so, as some have said, there is still hope. youth is precious right? im soooo enjoyign the 'best years of my life':rolleyes:

Cruddy
11-04-2005, 00:02:58
Then the only way is up, right?

If I was you, I'd concentrate on finding your own spot.

Always build on a solid foundation... but it's your call.

Don't think being homeless is all bad either. It sucks, yes, but it's not all bad.

Martini
11-04-2005, 00:04:16
It is. Ive been officially homeless since I was 16, its crap.

Greg W
11-04-2005, 00:04:16
It's funny, one day I guarantee you'll be able to look back on these times and smile. Heck, I did some silly things when I was young, got very down and depressed, and then I got older, and did sillier things, and got even more down and depressed.

Hmm, I am sure there was a point to this post, but danged if I can remember it now. :p

everybody said about how great highschool was and how I might think it sucked but would look back at it fondly

well, it has been ~7 years, and I still hate that place, and have no wish to remember it ever

it was probably one of themost terrible set of years in my life

now my current time, despite the frustrations and troubles, I will probably look back at as being good same with college)

very productive.

Cruddy
11-04-2005, 00:10:25
Couple other things you could do ;-

1) Get on the housing list

2) Get signed up at every housing association you can find.

You're in a hold bro. It's up to you do dig yourself out.

hmm.. I bet you have been developing freindships even if you aren't consciously thinking about it

crying is only good if you are making art of some type

dont' know much about working.. except that working in a cannery sucks, and working as a TA, while not fun, is alright

Martini - try going to an employment center. I presume they have them in the UK anyway. I guarantee there's a heap of jobs out there that you could do, ragardless of your level of education. Jeese, go work for a council, heaven knows in Australia they're known for being brainless.

Cruddy
11-04-2005, 00:18:48
They are called jokeshops in the UK. Especially in Liverpool.

Does no harm to try though.

Greg W
11-04-2005, 00:28:19
Buy a paper that advertises jobs. Go see a temp agency and see if there's anything you would be able to do. Heck, when I quit IT, I got work as a casual labourer for 6 months. Paid the bills at least, and being different, it was interesting. There'd have to be a female equivalent out there somewhere.

Basically, I am sure there's options out there for you. I just can't really tell you what they are, cos things are a little different down under.

Cruddy
11-04-2005, 00:29:58
The guys on crutches - how the hell is he going labouring for 6 months...

Best way to get a labouring job in the UK is to go to the sites and ask. I would think that's true for most countries with shit worker protection laws.

Martini
11-04-2005, 00:32:01
The guy is a girl!

and it was only due to a blister that got infected and...well yeah, ill spare you the details.

*Cruddy grovels

I apologise. I'm really, really sorry.

Would you consider a move to Nottingham? Or don't you have a bullet proof vest?

Qaj the Fuzzy Love Worm
11-04-2005, 00:33:19
:eek: They let you work IT?

Hiring on at a temp agency is a good idea if you've got some basic office skills (or think you might have - a little lie goes a long way). You'd end up with a sit down job behind a desk, be good for your feet.

It took me three months to find work here in California when I first got my work permit. Registering at a bunch of temp agencies was one of the first things I did. I went from contract programmer (highly paid!) to scrounging for admin clerking positions.

If it putrs food on the table and pays rent, it's a fabulous foundation from which to start.

Of course, now I work for the local County govt., which is great. I do tech support for people who help people find jobs. So the next lesson would be - Don't stop looking for something better! And don't be afraid to exaggerate the things you know you can do anyway.

11-04-2005, 00:33:52
The crutches are temporary because of blisters. Haven't you been keeping with the program? Give it a couple of weeks, and they won't be an issue. :hmm:

We actually have pretty good worker protection laws due to strong unions. Another reason I really can't say much, cos things are obviously different in the UK.

A-levels isn't bad qualifications wise, it's a lot more than a lot of people.

As for jobs, I don't know what it's like in Liverpool but loads of full time bar jobs in Reading come with free accomodation. Which could be an option.

Martini, good luck! The first job is always the hardest to get. Now you have things like "experience" and "transferable skills"

I dont know what either of those are but apparently you get them after losing your job.
