RE: Show off your employment
I work in the service department of a car dealership. I'm not a car guy, never have been. I could give a shit. So I get to be the middle man between overworked and pissed off technicians and customers who are pissed off because their vehicular is broken and they gotta pay a lot of goddamn money to get it fixed. Again, I could give a shit, but I don't. I suppose it's why I'm good at customer service, I understand you're angry, and I signed up to be the punching bag but I don't give a shit so you punch away and I'll wait until you're done and politely give you your options. It just makes for one hell of a headache at the end of each ten hour day, but I guess that's why god created bourbon.

Although, I've been there for a bit over a year and so far I've been able to get myself a nice reliable car for once in my life and we just bought a fucking house. So I can't say it's not working out for me or anything.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm a Senior Business Analyst for a Health Insurance company.

It's a fancy title for guy that sits in meetings all day long and works on spreadsheets.

RE: Show off your employment
I work at a pizza place for limited hours and minimal wage.....I kind of wish I was still working for 11.20 at my previous job but working here is a lot less stressful and I like the work MUCH much more.

So whatever, getting paid about half as much but like the work itself twice as much.

...just kind of wish retail would fucking hire me but they don't want me for some stupid reason.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

I'm looking for a translation of this one but I think the picture tells the tale.

From my limited German:

First line:

"Here are the emergency updates for the onboard navigation system."

Second line:

"No understanding of business opportunities and implications"

(And no I didn't use google translate except to find an alternative meaning of auswirkungen because 'effects' didn't seem entirely appropriate)

RE: Show off your employment
I'm just glad there aren't any gigolos working here. Nobody really wants to see their place of employment waved around this early in the day.....
