Hi there 4chan, its ya boi again.

I hate to come and ask you about my bs problems again, but I need to vent, and you guys seem to be wise in the ways of things.

I work as a merchandiser for a particular soft drink manufacturer. What this means is I'm responsible for going into stores, and stocking the shelves with soft drinks. In recent months ive been trying to get back to my old contract, where I did one major store, and several smaller stores. This was organized by means of verbal contract (i know, i should have got it in writing, i am the dumb). I had enough of them not resolving it, so I launched a formal complaint. This was their response

"Hi [Comunist Poptart]

The below is a recap of our MS Teams conversation Thursday 21/10/2021. Yourself, [Manager 1], [Manager 2] and Myself attended. [Manager 2] will arrange a catch up with you next week, to go through the call planner and align on in store expectations/time limits and how you went over the next three call days.

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us on Tuesday. To be successful in your role, you will need to have open, honest & timely communication with your manager, [Manager 1], or in his absence, [Manager 2], myself or the local TSM. We all operate as team, working with our customers, to grow our businesses and deliver a quality product to our consumers.

To simplify the process, I have grouped your concerns into the below sections & will answer each one individually. If it any point in the future you find yourself unsure of a work related situation, I encourage you to refer to this email, or contact one of the team members listed above, or a fellow merchandiser in your region.

Service Level Agreements with customers
You have asked for clarification on our contractual terms with Pak N Saves regarding filling
• There is no such contract
• There is no rule that a store must fill a certain amount of product for us
• I have attached the email sent to you on the 5th of October 2021 that addresses Customer Support & Stock Organisation

I'm here. Well first of all thank corporate fascism for having HUGE HR departments so they can screw little guys like you. Hell, they worry more about the customer than their own. Anyways, continue with what you seek advice on. Fuck HR they literally have no other role than to screw everything and everyone. Except trannies and poc. They shower them
>>
>>25151557
Yeh, this came straight from the managers
>>
>>25151536
What I get from your somewhat garbled posting is that you were hired to serve the stores that needed serving each day, but your manager told you informally that it would probably be PakNSave most of the time. Now, for whatever reasons, they've discovered you are more needed elsewhere, and are sending you to the stores that need serving.

That's right. You work for them. They serve the customer stores. Your job is to help them do their job. It is NOT their job to give you the assignment you'd prefer. So what is your complaint?

Man. I feel guilty but I don't know if I should, someone weigh in?

>speaking a lot to this chick, all the red flags are there, divorced parents, sent me nudes after less than a day of speaking, gave me a blowjob in the car after knowing me less than a week
>she really wants me to take her on a date and spend money on her (probably so she doesn't feel like too much of a whore)
>hate dates because they're expensive and in my experience nothing good ever comes of them
>fuck it, take her on a date
>meet up with my friends in the club after, she spends most of the night flirting with my friend, dancing next to (on) him
>already deflated, we move on to the next club
>oh of course my ex is there hooking up with someone, whilst my date is busy dancing with everyone except me
>save myself the embarrassment and leave, get a taxi home alone
>wake up to a bunch of missed calls, she's upset because I left her and she had to walk home alone
>tell her if she wants to be treated like a lady she should act like one
>she tells me to fuck off

Not sure if I'm being a jealous retard but I've never felt so cucked in my life, between watching my ex hook up with some dude and my date (who I actually kind of liked even given the red flags) not paying any mind to me.

It seems you did the right thing. If she was worth the effort, I suppose you could have warned her but that's a minor point.
At best she has awful boundaries. At worst, she was fucking with you or oblivious. It sounds like you made the right call.
The ex thing, well that sucks, but shoukd have been irrelevant. I can see where it saddened you. Word to the wise: get over it she's your ex, and be grateful for that.

Regardless of how bad a date goes - and yours doesn't sound all that bad - you take her home and ghost her later if you want.

When awaiting results how do you stay in a positive mind state? I've got exams this week, and am hoping to graduate by March 2022 but my uni is fucking me about. I received an email from the head of my course almost three weeks ago stating that I might have to come back for a single subject in semester one (March - June) and a single subject in semester two (August - November) of 2022. They haven't given me any more clarification since then and despite calling the uni, writing emails to all sorts of people, and generally freaking the fuck out, I've been given no further clarification. What do? How do I stay positive?

I would have to return for a compulsory placement and a core that is only compulsory for a handful of lucky souls like myself. I cannot take the core or the placement outside of the time they are run at the university. Even though I have an internship this summer that was originally organised through a different university placement subject, apparently this won't satisfy them.

I also cannot begin working in my field of choice, or even using my degree, until I have graduated and completed four months of additional training. The additional training cannot be started until I graduate. I just want to be done and finally live my life. What do I do?

The only way this could happen is if you somehow missed the right time or sequence to take those missing courses. Accept the results of your own errors.
>>
>>25153164
Genuinely not my fault. I am doing a fast tracked version of the course and they changed the structure during my degree. In previous years I would have completed the core this semester but it was unavailable. Future and current students in the regular program do not even have to do the core. The placement would usually occur at the student's convenience during semester, one, two, summer, or winter break. This is no longer the case and it is only taught in semester two next year. I had originally planned on applying for prior credit as I have already done two placements through the uni. Or I was going to apply to do it this summer. It usually runs during the summer.

I just checked and in previous years the core was run during the summer, semester one, and semester two as well. Not during winter though. This current break will be the summer break btw.
>>
Ok, man take control of things. Call them twice daily, or vetter yet, show up and let them know you are upset abiut the lack of communication. Politely refuse to leave until they either help you or a uniformed guard physically comes up to you and asks you to leave. I really can't overstate that you need to be firm and polite. Think boyscout/astronaut. Astronauts don't tske no for an answer, anon. There's like 1 million applications for 1 job.
>>
>>25153188
The college is closed due to COVID until next year. Otherwise I'd already be complaining in person and trying to force someone to sort my shit out. Whenever I call they tell me to contact the head of the course yet they haven't responded in three weeks. I'm thinking the university might be waiting until the course transfer date passes, just to force me to stay, and give me no options. I have no evidence of this but they have never been this level of unhelpful before. I really do love rhe idea of being a boyscout astronaut but I'm really lost. I have managed to have multiple different members of faculty and admin staff CC or individually email the course coordinator but to no avail.

>Initially tell her nothing, but then own up.
>Was embarrassed when I said I kind of like it when she "does that thing" which she then laughs at asking "what?"
>Tell her "you know what." Which makes her laugh harder saying she will do it next time


Wtf did she do to me why did cumming without her scent directly under my nose feel so shit? and why did she make me ask her when she knows exactly what I was talking about and what she didn't do this time that made the sex different.

OK then you will need to consume a lot of calories as well as caffeine throughout the shift. id bring 2 small redbulls and 2 diet mt dews. granola bars, string cheese, raisins, cranberries, chips, crackers. keep yourself fueled.

honestly though you are facing one of the most unpleasant days of your life. the desire to crash will be extremely potent all day. your concentration will be gone. your anxiety will be higher. you will have bad moods the whole time. you can do it but its gonna suck so fucking bad. this is how people get meth addictions.

I don't know what it is about me, maybe it's my gaze, maybe my posture, my anxiety, or the way I dress but I make the people around me uncomfortable. In turn, that makes me uncomfortable. So, it's this negative feedback loop that just keeps yearning for seclusion whenever possible. How do I become normal and break out of this cycle?

This is hard to give advice for when we don't know anything about what makes you weird
Try learning a bit about basic grooming, dressing well (don't need to be peak fashion, just know how to choose things that fit), managing anxiety, body language, social skills. There are books about the last few, the only one I know offhand is How to Win Friends and Influence People

Idk mate ask some random why

But can you describe yourself? How do you dress, what do you act like?

You need to find what vibe suits you. If nothing works to make people feel comfortable, flaunt being uncomfortable and become an absolute weirdo badass.

The way you dress definitely changes things from a distance, if you look like you've crawled out of a garbage can or look like a comic book villan you'll scare people. However, if you've got a friendly comfortable vibe then you can pull off anything.

So I'm basically homeless right now.

Living in a tent in a forest shit.

Barely affording BK rodeo burgers. I'm eating those because they're a dollar and nobody gives a fuck at BK so you're like a ghost while you charge your phone and batteries.

Used to download hella coupons and shit off /b/ and was pretty good at forging swords.

Anyone have any secrets/app secrets/etc. to get free shit?

In general or from specific corporations. Like, the magic words to receive free food with a piece of paper? Attending a shareholder event or some stupid shit like that. Anyone got any files?

your priorities are fucked up. Reexamine them. You've just objectively stated you're not homeless and you have an expensive car that doesn't work or make your life better.

>Just trying to eat until I get 2 paychecks under my belt.

Nutritionally speaking, hot food is basically going to be a luxury if its that tight. peanuts and nuts in general are your friend for energy protein and shutting up your stomach. It may sound weird, but apples and avocados (if under $1 each) are your friend too. Dollar menus aren't bad either, and order kids meals if you need variety, try to avoid making a meal more than $3 if you can.

Gas stations have microwaves or some kind of convection microwave-like oven often times. Their prices on frozen stuff sucks, but I see day laborers in the morning heaving up their own tupperware all the time(though they are polite enough to get out of my way if they see me buying something i'm nuking)

Since you haven't replied to my question of where you are in the world, try food banks. You can also get free food on your birthday. At the end of the day often places will give out mark out food. I've worked places that would chuck out massive amounts of food. I once saw this guy walk out of domino's with 30+ pizzas, he couldn't carry them all so chucked them out.

It'd be a long game but you could make friends with a store, order food online under a fake name from a public computer and never pick it up, resulting in a marked out item, and go in there at the end of the day asking for markouts
>>
>>25153020
I should've explained the birthday thing better
Make a fake identity, enter it into the website on several places where you can get free food on your birthday and just cycle through the locations. E.g. There's a cafe chain here that does free muffins on your birthday.

If you're a girl, it's much easier as you can chat up guys. In my bad times I'd get guys to buy me 100+ dollars of alcohol and food then ditch them. If you're a guy just be a non intimidating and sane friendly dude.

Otherwise, buy very large bags of soup mix/ramen/pasta and cook it in a parent's room microwave, or drink lots of milk.
