You're right. I don't deserve to deal with ppl, not even coworkers. Therefore, I'm considering work from home jobs. Unfortunately, they all seem to require higher than a high school diploma : (.
Good luck with your hunt, DD. You seem like a decent person with a problem you are working on. I hope you conquer the problem...and I hope you find a short term solution to your work situation.
You're gonna make it. You are on the right track.
The problem can be conquered or at least made manageable.
I have a similar problem. I got it under control.
oops i prolly failed to mention in my last post that both technical competence (work performance) and soft skills (ppl skills) are needed to succeed at any job in the long run. If you suck at either one, you're out. In this case, I suck at the ppl skills part lol. Therefore, I completely deserve what I got.
DD: I understand. You seem to be a good person. I think you'll do fine as you learn more about how to manage that anger. Even if you don't ever do front line retail, there's plenty other type of work for you at which you'll excell. Don't feel defeated, as this is ONLY a temp setback. This embarassment will pass...just forgive yourself. Out of curiosity, what do you parents say about this?
have you ever considered doing some volunteer work, like helping at a food bank, no pressure to stay, leave if you want, but in a volunteer environment you would be surrounded by people who want to be there, this would give you exposure to working with people in a positive environment, combined with therapy this might be a good way to develop better people skills
my parents actually kinda saw it coming a few days b4 I got canned. They told me how urgent my situation was the day I had a fight with my coworker. Then as the four days passed, they kept acting like I'm totally screwed. So the day I got canned, they didn't tear my head off. We were all simply just disappointed as a family.
currently considering that actually. in fact, it could help my resume.
