Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I'm so tired of this shit I wanna...

I just got done with a 9 day stretch at my current place of employment with no days off. I racked up at least 12 hours of overtime in that period and I am so glad to have the next couple days off.

What have been your hell days? Have you worked stretches at a time which were beneficial to your monetary status but sucked ass because you were at Best Buy all the time?

Come on motherfuckers, when has your job payed dividends for you in the long run while you sufferd in the short term? I want tales of woe!

And seriously, I am really tired.

    4 days in a row of 9 hours shifts standing behind a counter at the local supermarket.

    Not one gap in customers the whole time.

    Spent the entire time hateful and wishing some death on my fellow shithead human beings

    I had to sleep at work this last weekend because of a blizzard. I got no sort of pay for this, because I get paid salary. Which is bullshit.

    Last I worked a twenty-hour bar shift for a wedding at a hotel, which had a reception of three hundred people, all clamouring for pints of coke because they were cheap bastards who weren't willing to pay hotel prices for real booze. There was a constant stream of customers using up the glasses at a rate our KP's couldn't keep up with, so I ended up serving drinks in Irish coffee mugs. Normally in these types of events I get to wolf down a decent amount of leftover food, but it was a Moroccan themed wedding, and it was all overly-sweet thirst-inducing pap (who the fuck thought it was a good idea to put sultanas in real food?).

    All for five quid an hour and all the comments on the price of drinks I could take.

    I don't have a job this Christmas, so I don't have to work! Which leaves me plenty of time to research my dissertation and find out that I got all the wrong books out of the library before I left uni for the holidays. It's not like I can do anything else, as I have no money and there's nothing to do in this town.

    Yay Christmas!

    Because I have made no worthwhile accomplishments in my life, have no worthwhile life experiences and am 2 years behind the curve regarding anything.

    Oh yeah other people were there so it wasn't so bad. We had me, the chemist, and technicians for both the day and night shift stranded at work. So plenty of other people were there too, plus we got to watch The Dark Knight on a huge projection screen after work on Saturday.

    I guess one time I worked about 90 hours in one week to get some stuff done. The company made Hell of money on it though. And so did I. But goddamn it sucked immensely while I was doing it.

    Fuck off and die.
