    For sure! It's a British company so the bosses are generally very polite and reasonable as compared to some of my previous work with American companies in the same field. The CEO's are both guys not much older than me, so they actually take the time to listen to the employees and explain their policies and things to us generally, as well as join the work chat often to joke around, wish happy birthdays, and welcome new members. It's definitely one of the best companies I have worked for in that regard. I'm just sick and sleepy so it got to me more than usual LOL.

    Cheap dish soap. A little doesn't go a long way. Don't skimp on dish soap. In the end, it doesn't pay.

    The people who live on the floor above me in my apartment complex stomping around, sounding like giants. Scares the crap out of me because it makes loud noises. Freaks my cat out sometimes, too.

    When you receive weekly stat emails saying you are doing amazing, and then you come back from 3 days off to a mandatory phone call with a verbal warning because of a customer complaint, and a railroading about everything you are doing wrong, even though the email you received the DAY BEFORE states you're #3 on the whole team.

    I try to take criticism well, I try to take things like that and make improvements, and I generally do it pretty well I think. This just caught me off guard so much. Then the supervisor proceeded to "listen in" on the rest of my chats before my break and then would butt into chats with suggestions on how to improve (not things I was doing wrong necessarily, just how HE would do it, I made a lot of sales) so the whole morning I was an anxious mess, and then spent my 2 hour break crying in my bathroom and wanting to quit, which is something I struggle with when I feel things are unfair, I get overwhelmed and just shut down and walk away from it. I think it has something to do with my depression, like it's SO HARD TO GET OVER things like that for some reason. But Christmas is coming and bills, so I sucked it up and am just trying to finish my day right now.

    Three more hours to go....

    Double post because I am done with my pity party from yesterday, and am trying to move forward in a positive manner, and do my best.

    Here's to a better day!

    That's all you can do, move forward and try to be positive. I'm super frustrated this week because sales are so low. We've got awful lists right now as we're fishing at the bottom of the barrel until our client gives us new lists. Sales = money, and it's already halfway through the month so I'm pulling my hair out trying to get people on the phone.

    I'd be frustrated as hell if my supervisor did what yours did to you. The great thing in all of this is that mine is supportive even though we're all sucking right now.

    Seems it's a crappy month for all. I'm not in sales but I'm training a new person. It's kind of difficult to do when I'm not receiving trouble tickets to show him how to correct programming errors. This leads me to believe no one is placing orders or creating accounts. No errors for me to fix, usually means low sales. So for now, I'm doing my best to make up examples of shit that can go wrong and teach him with them. Oh and my boss is zero help. I have no idea when I'm supposed to be training and when I'm not. I just walk by the new guys desk and if he's sitting there clueless, I assume I'm supposed to train him on something.

    I'm a hired gun for this band. They asked if I was available for New Years and what they do is quote them for either a 3 piece or 4 piece including keys and female vox (ie ME). They opted for the 3 piece and I missed out on this. FML.
