What I'm really afraid of is that I will get a new job and the same thing will happen all over again -- I'll get screwed over financially and ostracized socially. Seems the only thing I can really control is that the actual work interests me. If I like what I'm doing I will tolerate the other crap.
My job before this was a union cashier job and it bothered my social radar that I was a low thing, there were 16-yr-olds still in high school with the same job. Also bothered my self-pres, I knew my brain was not being challenged and occupied properly. Also, my husband reminds me of what I so easily forget -- that I came home and complained about the idiotic customers every day, from big fat toothless women saying "HHHEEEEEHHHHHHH?" to me when they couldn't hear what I said, to these snooty girls with 5-inch-long elaborately manicured nails chatting away on their cell phones and being really picky about how I bagged their stuff -- then they would pull out a food stamp card to pay their bill. I wondered how they could afford the manicures and cell phones and still be on welfare. I still can't afford regular manicures and always seem to forget to get the cell phone the few times a year I have xtra money.
