Working life

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  A week from tomorrow I will be free of my old chains.

I knew when I left this retail job I wouldn't want to get into another one.  I'm still going to be working with people, but it will be via phone.  I know that no job is perfect, but I have high hopes that this one will be better.  I have felt for a long time that I don't want to be working a face position with the public.  I have to put on a fake smile and laugh at dumb comments.  I have almost no faith in humanity.  People are so greedy.  The people I work with are really greedy.  I hate being in sales, because I don't do well.  I'm not going to sell an elderly person text messaging or something equally as useless to them to make an extra $2.  The other people in this store are feeling the crunch of that right now. They put features on people's accounts who didn't ask for them last month.  This month, they are calling customer service and having the feature removed.  It is also removed from their commission earnings if it is less than six months.  One of the people I work with has a $400 deficit.  I think I'm the only one who has a positive commission dollar amount.  It will be nice answering questions about something other that wireless phones and services.  I'll get an insurance license to fall back on.  I still want to go back to school when we return to Maine, but it will be nice to have something solid to fall back on if necessary.

I can recommend night school. I did a lot of it for the same motivation. You need a piece of paper to get ahead. It's a sorry truth, but there it is.
