My calling is to be the undesirable person in ‘before’ photos that gets swapped out for a more attractive ‘after.’
And the bad part is it FEELS like a discovery/understanding period.
I can’t remember the last time I was this angry with myself. I had my shot, man, my fucking shot.
I had finally reconnected with Aerotek and got a trial work day scheduled and I’m like “work? Fuck yeah nigga I’m the baddest worker that ever moved to workville.” That doesn’t mean I underestimated what I was up against, definitely not. But I work so hard, day in, day out, I have drive, I have work ethic, and I have motivation, how could I not be ready for a measly 8 hour work day?
I really needed this one too, Aerotek is THE ONLY way to get hired on by Toyota, and it’s an instant $4 pay raise from Vuteq, who is ready to fire me any second now. This day was a career shot. I had a chance to have my pay scale go up and up and up for like 10 fucking years. Career opportunity.
First couple hours went fine, great even, I’d even say I was soaring with flying colors. Then we get to the weight wall and I’m like “pff weight wall doesn’t scare me I’m a logistics motherfucking badass, all I DO is lift!”
But I don’t fucking know what happened.
-1 hour goes by and I’m ok, little shaky and back hurts but fine, needing water.
-1 hour 15 mins, I notice my stomach starting to feel sick, and I really want water.
-1 hour 30 mins go by I’m feeling really sick, and I’m dying for water.
Finally ask to go grab a drink of water cause then I can work the rest of this off just fine, BUT INSTEAD I TAKE TWO STEPS AND PROJECTILE VOMIT EVERYWHERE FOR LIKE A REALLY AWKWARD AMOUNT OF TIME WITH AEROTEK PEOPLE JUST WIDE EYED LIKE I JUST GAVE BIRTH TO JESUS FROM MY MOUTH IN 2014.
"yeaaahh you can go ahead and go home."
I hate fucking everything.
You don’t look like you could take a joke.
You look for the fresh prints.
it’s a shame they’ll never meet.
Then they call me ugly and poor.
