I hate September.

[Rant=ON]

For the past month I've been trying to get a job transfer to move to the greater Phoenix area without success. I've also applied to about 20 jobs without any kind of return call(I always had to call). I haven't had a "weekend" off in almost two months, and haven't been able to see my girlfriend in the same time. She understands, and it's a difficult month for her to get any time off as well because of these promotions and events she has to manage. Even if I did get a weekend off, I might be able to spend 8hrs with her.

So I had to call the apartment complex I was planning on moving into and tell them that I wasn't going to be able to move by my planned date. I didn't sign a lease yet, so no harm there, but I hate making any kind of commitment and not being able to go through with it. They were cool and appreciated the notice, but it's almost like I had everything ready and then at the last minute it went to $hit.

And to top it off, I keep getting text messeges from my friends saying, "There is a party at so-and-so's place, you going to be there?" Nope I have to fawking work, because the asshats I work with keep getting "sick" and are going around my supervisor to get days off without us knowing before it's too late.

Did I mention I hate retail now? I've been in retail for the past 7 years, and am pretty much sick of it. Not only the general public, but the stupid ass numbers games that businesses play. I'm just done, and need something new.

My parents are also driving me literally mad. I can't stand to be around them for more than a few hours at a time. With my dad's constant narrations and my mother's mood swings from depression and whatever else it's a little more than just irritating. I take the dogs on more walks than they care to go on.

I need a damn vacation and October can't get here soon enough! I requested the 4th through the 10th off as I was planning on moving that week... things changed... guess I'll use the time to party it up.

Starting to feel like I'm stuck in this god for saken, boring ass, hick-town.



Sorry

Thanks for sharing. I appreciate you sharing your grips (no, really) and going the healthy route and getting it off your chest.

Speaking from the cowards chair I occupy (as I've never done what I'm about to recommend myself) maybe it's time to throw caution to the wind and just go. Dump the job, grab your stuff and just go.

Or, you could just stick around and let us all reply with other "helpful" advice...

Either way, I hope it all works out for you!

I'd love to just go. But with the uncertainty of employment, I'm a little afraid to. I have close to $3000 in my savings account and a little more than half that in my checking. I could get by for a little while, but without a job, it wouldn't be worth it.

Hopefully things turn around for the better, but it always seems like the gods have a grudge against me for some reason.

How's your resume? Is it really well polished and without all the overused phrases that turn off hiring managers? Short and to the point? So-so resumes are a dime a dozen, really good resumes get more responses. Are you including a cover letter custom made for each opportunity that shows your interest in that particular company, that you've done your homework on them and you are specific on what you can do for them?

Good luck man, I've been in your situation where responses to job inquiries are far and few between.
