gotcha, thanks

the thing i've been doing in therapy lately is trying to realize how warped my worldview is. like my parents are super bougie and i'm trying to be normal

like i genuinely thought everyone did that type of shit [calling off for bullshit]. and if i saw someone else do that i'd be like 'oh lol have fun dude'

similarly - you were the one that recommended me Man's Search for Meaning a while back right? Been reading that lately -- whenever I was in rehab I would think about the part where a man is sobbing because his shoes finally fell apart and he had to report to march in the snow in bare feet for the first time. And I realized probably everyone there would slit my throat for my bedsheets

I totally see what you mean, but for me I like the exercise. And talking to tons of strangers daily does wonders for my social anxiety. And at the actual restaurant my coworkers are/were cool to talk to

Too scared to apply to jobs with upward mobility

Good for you, man. And yeah, I recommended that. In fact, I should read it again myself. I can understand having a warped view on things, it makes sense and I have it to related to other stuff. It's great you're trying to grow to be more like who you want to be

one can actually cook them inside of the chicken prior to their own emergence, which is grotesque and amazing

Instead of the car should have had your parents front you 2 months rent after which you'd be on your own

but kinda agree delivering with a rental would have been stupid

Imagine having parents that could help you with rent and car expenses instead of if having to go the other way around.

Imagine needing a job so little that you can afford to just not go in because you don't feel like it, be explicit about that, and tell your boss to fuck off when he takes issue.

Like, I'm already anti-boss and against the fetishization of "hard work" and "going the extra mile for your boss" and all that dumb shit, but it's only the most well-off people who can afford not to give a shit.

take a day off here and there?

hell paid time off by law is the norm in other developed countries as far as I understand

you're right that I personally can't afford to miss work for example, comrade, but still

I think I misunderstood the fact that you actually listed those reasons for not wanting to go into work. Next time just say you're sick. It's February, it's not that farfetched (I'm sick right now, so sad).

It would be nice if this attitude actually stood a chance of changing a single thing

Problem with being flaky re attendance, though, is that you’re not “sticking it” to mgmt as much as u r “sticking” it to your fellow workers

What we need is organized and uniform bargaining vs mgmt, not to be individually terrible employees
