Lets Talk About Our Lives

Did it once. Realized job was not going to work out mostly because they expected me to work 12 hour shifts 6 days a week, bakery factory job, and had another opportunity i had to take fast. I do regret it because that place could have been a great place to work and was at one point. My mom had worked there more than 30 years but fucking covid wrecked shit.
 
I'm making the most reckless decision of my life: resigning my current before I had a next job.

My psychiatrist is already tripling the meds she give me, and I'm not doing any better.

I just hope I can find a job before my 3 month's prior notice hit.
So uh what do you do and why are you quitting If you don't mind me asking?

I'm an Engineer working in the manufacturing industry.

I worked 5 years in the same company, and see no future of myself.

The last Factory Manager resigned over "family issues", and the new Manager is a 30-year veteran of the company...

But he's a workaholic perfectionist micromanaging OCD that "led by example". He would work 2~3 hours overtime without pay and expects his subordinates to do the same. And he demanded all weekly or monthly reports be updated daily, and any faults would be pointed out by him with email, at midnight, as he expects you to correct it first thing in the morning. Then he demands everyone to multitask at 120% capability, just as he did. And every day, a "30-minute shift-end meeting" became a two hour berating session because "we weren't showing enough improvement".

Officially, I resign because I said I am facing depression, work pressure, no personal life, and seeing no future of myself.

The new manager's response: Depression and pressure? you shouldn't depend on medications, have you try Yoga? Personal Life? Is 1.5 days per week not enough, what do you want more?


I manage to negotiate that I extend my work for 12 more months, in exchange he keep his promise that he keep his "30-min meeting" to really 30 minutes.

You sure he wasn't replaced by a Japanese pod people? Holy guacamole.
 
Why do people like Jordan Peterson and why does my mother want to talk politics on the way to work?
she made enough poor life choices that she needs idiots like Peterson whom talk above his station for cash to lull herself awareness back to sleep
 
So the family thought that since I hate a lot of Zack Snyder shit but I like to watch bad movies, we should watch that first part of Rebel Moon.



It is like how those parody movies turned into a jumbled mess of "you remember this thing from that place, right? Well... here you go! LAUGH!"

The cinematography is normally good (never play a drinking game about when there is slo-mo), but the story is shit despite being shamelessly stolen, characters are actually caricatures with zero depth, and conversations are 90% exposition.

The guy can turn out some half-decent stuff when closely controlled, but the more control he has the more it can only appeal to delusional Snyder Bros.

His books are admittedly dull as dirt, but he is a great conversationalist and very clear with his message.

or she for the first time found someone that is saying what she had been saying all those years. "Clean up your room!"
What mother would not resonate with that?
