Happy new year to anyone that may still be around here including the lurkers. In 2022, it seems I still have a compulsion to post here.

I finally got a job. The title is salesperson but I'm basically a fashion retail hoe. I don't suck dick but I will sell sweaters for cash apparently. I figure I'll give it a go. The company allegedly is a good company to work for so we shall see.

2021 flew by. Isn't there some hypothesis that time is relative or something like that? Or, the classic as one ages time speeds up. Terrifying. I realize aging is inevitable but the degradation of the body is no fun.

amazing u got a job. im honestly shocked. also shocked loco has not sabotaged you before this happen.

my tip for u now is dont do dumb things at the job. dont help some anarchist female friend from AA steal from the store like u did at whole foods or something similar to that. also the moment u start thinking about anti-capitalist themes have a co-worker punch u in the balls.

Having a job in retail probably isn't going to be amazing, but its still better than the alternative of being unemployed doing nothing all week.

I have to give credit where its due.

just make sure it's a real company and not MLM masquerading as reputable

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus Hansen

It's understandable that people get used to their shackles, but goddam I don't think I've ever seen someone try this hard at being a slave.

You teach classes during a math Phd, which counts as a job, though it only pays $30k~ a year. My research is too 'pure' to be useful for the industry but I have done a lot of work on visibility and collision detection problems, which is relevant for high tech industry. There are some good companies out there doing robotics and other high tech research but I imagine they get a huge amount of job applicants.
Worst things worst I could delete all my anarchist posts and go work as a cryptographer for the state spy agency.

But do u have to pay like tuition for the PhD program too? I actually have no idea how it works.

Anyway ru happy with 30k? U are a strange fellow so I don't hold it past u. If I had ur brain I'd be worth millions by now.

You don't have to pay tuition for almost any PhD program. Some masters programs you gotta pay tuition, but those are scams. Many of the people in my last class of undergraduate never had to pay tuition for anything as they had scholarships. I'm fine with $30k a year if it's just for a few years, I have investments from poker winnings that complement it.

True I didn't pay anything for my phd in life experience. Anyway seems like a solid plan.

I think I need some things to look forward to.

I've been wanting to build my own desktop cpu for ages now. I've never done it before. What kind of specs do I need? I really only need stuff to make music and some gaming.

Over/Under on how much I spend on in store fashion in 2022?

It will be more than 0. Mostly because my wardrobe is t-shirts, sweatshirts, and sweat pants.

haha

This happened to me once. Some guy used a mutual acquaintance who I thought was a really solid dude to get me to Panera Bread under the guise that it was an interview for a sales/marketing position and it didn't take him long to start his spiel. He gave me some book by Robert Kiyosaki and I forgot I had it so I had to make a second trip to the Panera Bread to give it back to him and tell him to stop bothering me.

Being unemployed with money is great. Being unemployed with out money is pretty shit. In the former case I think there has to be enough money to do some traveling. Painting is even too expensive in the latter case which is terrible. I can stack internet, guitar, chess, coding but maybe I don't want to do that everyday. That is the worst part. The days when I am sick of it and just want to go hang with friends but I can't even afford gas and food. That is when it is bleak. The bleak NEET life. The bleak NEET life there is all the opportunity in the world if some money was sprinkled on me while I slept. Probably $3k/month to be tolerable. The bleak NEET life where I end up sleeping 15 hours a day and barely have the motivation to get the mail.

I'm sure there would be blow-back from Loco and Baal over the fact that I am selling fashion. It is what it is. And maybe there wouldn't be blow-back because they know how much I needed a job.

Even if it has been rated "One of the top companies to work for since Ancient Greece" I am still skeptical. I am sure I am not going to like some of their practices. But now is a time I must find the grind.

Congrats on the job. Don't let people like Stroggoz disparage you by calling you a slave. If he can't see the difference between voluntarily taking a job in retail and being owned by another person and forced to work against your will then that's his problem, not yours.

I don't care what you are selling. But I do think it's sad if you end up spending a bunch of money in their store. Also I'd probably start losing some weight before I rehauled my wardrobe. Good luck with everything.

Voluntary is one word. Coerced is more accurate.

What if I was selling cigarettes to children? Beef to butchers? Arms to Israel?

I had to have a bit of a laugh about spending my paycheck in store. It is something that I have to stay vigilant with. It is common for addicts to get addicted to buying stuff to grasp at a good feeling. Clothing is a need but obviously not all clothing is a need. It's also easy to rationalize large purchases with the fact that that price can be amortized over years and years of wear. A $500 scarf that one wears 10 times is pretty silly but a pair of jeans can be worn perhaps a thousand or more times. I have thought about the wardrobe re-haul. I can still wear some XL and when I am smaller I can still wear XXL. Pants are the big one. I hate khakis and don't need to wear them for this job so I'll just have a couple of fat jeans that I give to charity hopefully sooner rather than later. There is a Greek place walking distance from the store that has pretty good options. There is also a McDonald's walking distance from the store that is my enemy. My plan is to eat at the Greek place every day if I don't have food I can bring in and put in the fridge.

Overall, it is kind of a crap retail job but better than Whole Foods Market. My managers and co-workers seem cool. It kind of bothers me that the margin on one dress is potentially 2 or 3 times what I make in an hour if not more. There were so many people buying today on just a random Wednesday. I am not really thinking about starting a union yet but who am I kidding the thought has crossed my mind. Sometimes the thought crosses my mind that now everything in my life is work and recovery for work. It's depressing. What am I going to do? There are bills to be paid and bleak NEET life is bleak.
