Why do people treat employees like shit at retails jobs. You have a job too, pal. We're all human and we're all just trying to make a buck.

Some days you just want to get in the car and drive. You want to feel the sunshine and feel it's warmth. You just want to breathe the air of a new beginning.

I feel directionless! I'm not happy with my job... But no other jobs seem ideal either.

Okay so tomorrow morning before my shift I am giving in my resignation to the job were they treat me horribly and I'm so nervous that they will treat me worse. I still have a little over two weeks left there. I am sick to my stomach and I can't sleep. Been having really bad anxiety about it. Help please!?!?

I'm nervous about the job that I just gave my notice into. I'm not sure how the staff will react. But I'm super excited to be free from all the abuse!!!

Somewhat a love and hate relationship towards my job. It's good in terms of benefits and what we deserve and all.... not sure if it's a career path I want to take forever. The stress is getting to me and my body is reacting to it.

My boss hates me. I've been making all kinds of mistakes at work recently. I can't seem to get her to like me again. We used to be friends.

I'm a teacher. A parent just emailed me at 9pm on a school night to casually say she's concerned her daughter won't be ready for the test at the end of the year. Translation I'm not a good teacher. She's the wife of the board president. Awesome

You guys. The stress from my job is hijacking my life. I'm treating people terribly. I feel so out of control and I'm so ashamed. Help!

I spent months preparing the perfect application for my dream internship and I was just turned down on the first round. I am really upset, and this rejection validates my anxiety about not being smart/good/accomplished enough. I'm trying to stay calm, and not to cry, but I am really disappointed.

My job is not exactly in my line of dream profession for when I get out of college. I stand on my feet all day and I deal with cranky old lady customers and it can get really frustrating at times. And folding clothes for two hours after our store closes is never a fun task. But the feeling I get after finishing a long day of work by coming home and having made it through as a good worker and earning decent money.. That's a really nice feeling.

My coworker and I both have anxiety, but we differ in the ways that it manifests, and I have trouble not putting her down for it. I try to not let my mental illness get in the way of my professionalism, but she has a breakdown and gets irritable a lot because of it. We work in an organization that serves the poor, and I sometimes think when she is rude to our clients because of her anxiety that she needs to suck it up and be calm for the population we work with or find a new line of work. :/

I graduated from college 2 years ago and still haven't been able to find a decent enough job. It's so disheartening & it makes me feel worthless.

I have a job with good benefits but I hate the work I do because it's boring and it's not something I ever imagined myself doing. unfortunately I have no idea what I want to do as a career and it sucks that I am going to be 25 soon but have no idea what I am passionate about.

Right now im freaking insecure. This event job requires wearing a long sleeve but i was too late for work so i have to work for another position as a cashier and that means WEARING A POLO TSHIRT, i dont want that, i cant let people see my scars, this feels so scary. WHY DO I HAVE TO FEEL THIS WAY. Ohh god and i really hate being around so many people right now. I dont want to panic please no panicking right now god.... Maybe i should just skip work? But i need this money... why am i so weak.

I need a better job and there's one I should apply to but it would require moving to a bigger, less safe city and I really don't want to do that

I just started a new job and I already want to quit. Anybody have that feeling of you know where you're supposed to be? I'm not trying to rush anything, I just don't like feeling lower than I am.
