Quitting the new job

well as I mentioned in another thread, I am quitting the new job I just started last week. There are many things I don't like about it, such as, being radio dispated, driving in Boston a lot, working with idiots (they like to not tell me the full address of the place I have to go, so I have to ask them for the whole address). Last week they told me to drop stuff off at the wrong airline, then I had to go back just after I left to take it back and bring it to the right one (I was worried about that becuase I didn't wanna get screwed because of doing something wrong with cargo at an international airport).

The money is good but being happy just plain sucks and I won't do that again (did it for a year and pretty much hated life). Autozone says I can come back (never fully quit and I wasn't taken off ful time in the system yet anyway). Plus they said I can still have the promotion they were thinking of giving me when I took the new job.




and for anyone wondering, the money is building in the bank account towards a new bike.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

at autozone I pick orders in the morning to be sent to other stores (and prepare the paperwork to go with those orders). Send out parts to other stores across the country, stock shelves, deliver parts to local shops and rarely drive the routes to deilver parts to other stores. New position is basically the same but more money and I'll be considered a manager (I already have a managers password in the computer).


the other job is driving a straight truck delivering stuff. can be pretty much anything as long as its not hazardous. Deliver a lot of large wooden crates, go to Gillette and pick up a few boxes (sometimes it can be more I guess but the most I've done was 5 boxes) and deliver them to another Gillette building up the street (not sure how they make money on that. seems to me they could do that themselves and just call us when they have a bunch of stuff). Its pretty much just pick this stuff up here and take it here.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Quitting the new job

I might be following your lead but going to another new job doing the same type of work just more money (in MA. tho ) and no non-paid trips for work.

Not getting paid for milage/tolls sux!

Re: Quitting the new job

Oh i was just wondering cause My GF Sunny used to deliver car parts for Pep Boys and it seemed like a crappy job... she had to use her own pickup truck (my pickup truck) and pay for her own gas. put alot of miles on the truck went through lots of gas and did not get paid to well for it... so she quit..

Another perspective: I *wish* that were the most inconvient thing I had to deal with in my job.

I like to think of work like this: "We *all* have to do a little bit of **** work. As long as the majority of it is cool, then we have a deal and I won't complain (too much) about the little bit of **** work that I have to tolerate."

Still yet another perspective: If it was fun, they wouldn't call it work.

Yet another: If it wasn't a hassle you wouldn't get paid (well) for it.

Some days this statement is literal for me.

I know a guy that works at a strange chemical company here in town. One day he walked into a building he'd never been in before and saw one guy sitting in front of a scale. All the way down the bench were rows of turds in weigh boats. At least you don't have that job...

Yeah, being one of those weigh boats would be pretty shitty.

No offense man, but you're not good. At some point you're going to have to get off mom and dad's teat, and stand on your own two feet.

To do that, you will need a real income. And the ability to work a **** job when you need to.

With this, will come new stress, less disposable income, and tons of well earned self confidence.

Nothing personal, but you have no clue what real job stress is...

Or the jobs or your coworkers/friends. Or the hundreds/thousands of employees the auto manufacturers are laying off. Etc etc.
