I stack shelves in ASDA (Walmart in the UK). I work 11 hours on night shifts. 9pm - 8am.

Over worked and under paid :roll:

Thanks

John



That doesnt sound very fun. 11 hours is a really long shift to be doing the same thing all night.

Sounds like you're doing way better man😎

I work at fedex ground loading people's packages into delivery trucks. It is not fun at all but pays well for the moment and has decent benefits lol. I'm finishing my computer science degree so I can get a better job lol. I cannot wait to finish school.

At least I'm safe inside my mind

I had to quit that job when I found I had a lil bit of a drinking problem.  I would get wasted by myself every night when it was just me and my 1 yr old at the time.

Ahh I was being kind of facetious after I removed my slightly inebriated rant about the perils of studying linguistics in college.  Although truthfully a bit too much of the sauce at the time led me down that path.  Although my original sober plan of studying biology is not exactly known for high paying jobs with a BS.

I drank my way into the hospital a couple of times so I went out with a bash on July 4th, 2015, and drank as much as I could before leaving my parents annual party, and havent touched it since cuz it ran my life.  I wish I could socially drink with ppl, but I just dont have it in me to stop at like 6 shots, or 10 beers.

Ahh dude you're making me feel like a douche.  I was the same way.  Though I've managed to really reign it in. A DUI 3 years ago really started to put an end to my shenanigans.  Haven't been to a bar since.  Now with the birth of a child a month ago I'm in a new place.  Won't pretend like I'm reborn from the ashes or anything but I'm not drinking at a professional level like I once was.
