Jobs are for brains that can make plans and stick with them. Jobs are for people who can go with the flow, and not just be pretending to.
My new job is working in retail. I am a visual merchandising assistant. I make a little above minimum wage, but that’s not the problem..
..the problem is that I work with young, backstabbing, vain, horrible, non professional people. These are the kind of people that make cliques and make everyone else who isn’t in it feel like outsiders. They are really fake and mean to people whom they don’t deem fashionable enough.
The other day I got sent in the office for a talk because I had ask for my boss’s boss opinion on a project I was doing. She helped me and was really okay about it, but then turned around and told my boss that I didn’t know what I was doing, and that he must not be training me right! She got all of that from me asking her advice! My bosses told me to never talk to her again because she just acts like that about everything. Basically, she is out to get me. THEN they told me that I need to calm down because I am just an assistant and that my enthusiasm was too much!!
Too much?? Too much?? If they only knew how much I needed and wanted a job! How much effort it takes me to keep something because of my mental illness! It shocked me!
Now, I’m sitting in-between a rock and a hard place because I need and like what I do, but the people are not my cup of tea.
How can I overcome this??
