I watched my son go through the same.  


One shit job after another...  I watched his soul die a little, he worked hard..  each job, then he was let go.


He was depressed.  I offered my help, he kept refusing.


Eventually, he let me assist.


We shotgunned 200 resumes out.  


it took 3 months, and a boat load of interviews, but now he works at his dream company.  Not the job he wants in the end, but he is advancing.  Last week they offered to pay for him to go to school for his next higher degree.  


Bottom line, its out there, and dont loose faith or hope.  If you like, I can review your resume as well. 


Dont give up!

Lol. I would like to put you down as a reference, but I think they normally just want Supervisors and Managers that I worked with on the list.

My main problem with being socially awkward is trying to be funny, until realizing what I actually said had no humor behind it whatsoever. People just stare at me like I said something offensive, then it haunts me for about a week until I have the confidence to get back out of my house again.


AMEN!  I know this feeling well

i will say that I do bite my tongue until asked for my opinion.. about 90% of the time.  The other 10% I end up muttering my opinion to myself.

I understand recognizing hard work.  Really.  My issue is with the folks that are ok with doing a half assed job, and others (ok..  me) have to either fix or finish the job.  Pay is the same.  But the half assers are also the first to complain on any issue.

I say this is an isolated incident, but it's a daily occurrence.  I hate to group it..  but it's also the same age group I started this thread about.  

I guess its just different work ethics.  But it really pisses me off that I have to continually help people out that don't give 2 shits about the work they do..  then bitch at me for not helping sooner.

Ok..  I admit it..  I am old.  (50 is getting close...)


However, the people I work with (25 and younger) just don't seem to give a crap about the job. 


I am not "in charge".  


For example, I work on switch gear, programmed automation, generator systems, logic controls and such.  Another "tech" calls me up, and says "G..  the push-button to test the system dosen't test the system.  Can you come look at it?"  I drive across town, turn the key from "manual to automatic" and boom..  system works as advertised.  I could not even get the kid to look up from his phone long enough to show him what was wrong.


Is there no pride in your work anymore?


Do I expect too much?


Should I say no?  Stop helping?


Please..  any feedback is good..  what hair is have left is falling out.


Thank you.
