3 1/2 hours was all I could bear in that sweatshop. I just walked right the f*#k outta there. I came home soaked head to toe in sweat and filth smelling like beer and Pepsi and stink. I took a shower and when I got out I became fully aware of how woozy and sick I was feeling. Did a quick Google search to confirm what I already knew was dehydration.

After lying down for about 10 minutes and feeling like I was about to fall asleep, I tried to get up twice a few minutes in between to make some toast and had to go lie back down because I thought I was gonna hurl. A few hours later here I am feeling better after guzzling many bottles of water and a 32oz Gatorade. Had some toast and realized I haven't peed in probably 7+ hours and I don't feel like any is coming on either.

My body aches and I can't even begin to fathom the idea of working at this recycling plant for any longer than I did, never mind 90 days +/- before the company actually hired me.

I feel kind of defeated. I was really unprepared mentally for what I thought would be a simple job based on what I was told. The guys that work there full time have my full respect because I can't figure out why on Earth any person in their right mind would want to subject them self to that madness on a daily basis for shit pay.

McDonald's workers think they don't make enough? Try slavery for a few hours at not much more than minimum wage and then tell me you're the ones that have something to complain about. Fskepftr

Anyways, that's how my late afternoon/night has gone. Back to be unemployed for the time being. Anon

Yeah, I've done that once in my life too.

Your first instinct is usually best.

I did that too once on a job. Lasted into the 2nd day - walked off the job in the middle of the day, and never regretted it. Don't ever sell your soul for money - didn't know what I would do after quitting that at the time, but somehow I survived and now many years later doing just fine

Sorry to hear that didn't work out for you.

Hopefully something far better will come along for you!

There is this wonderful new invention that if you use it properly, you would be able to work a full day, probably a full week, and maybe a full month.

Its called water

also, a little pride doesn't hurt either

I would feel defeated too if I gave up in such a short time. In the future if you get a job that has you sweat heavily then make sure you intake 128oz or more of water throughout the day. When I worked in a warehouse for the summer I was drinking 240oz of water in 10-12 hours.

I quit a job once after three hours of work. I had just started working on a sod farm stacking rolls of sod on pallets for $3/hr. It had rained the night before and the rolls of sod (grass, roots and dirt) were very heavy. Back breaking work. It wasn't worth it.

I use to work my ass off in the heat as a mechanic. Try leaning over a hot engine all day or under a car with a hot exhaust. No AC 100 degrees outside and 100% humidity. Also did the opposite end of the scale working at a truck stop in Minnesota. go outside in 20 below temps to fill up 18 wheelers, add oil, change tires, etc.

That was all my fault. The thing is nobody else was having anything because nobody stopped working at all. I was really trying to make a good impression and really sort of overworked myself real quick without thinking ahead. I didn't want to seem like I was weak or couldn't handle tough conditions like everyone else. Really I know better but this is how I operate naturally at a subconscious level.

I also am aware that how hard I worked did not affect my pay, and that's when I started to slow down but I soon realized it was too late for that. Usually I would have worked until I was passed out or dead, but something told me it was best to just get out.

There really are two sides to me. One that knows better and one that ignores the side that knows better. chuckle

I worked at a plastics factory once for a week on a temporary job.
It was harsh. Felt like 150 in the room, sweat all day.
2 five minute breaks and 20 minute lunch.
And I was in my 20's.
Never wanted to do that again!!

Lmao
You will find better.

I've worked outside in subzero weather many winters. I know what it's like to feel like you're frozen stiff, not being able to pick up a hammer because your hands are so numb you can't use them.

I know about the heat too. I've done roofing in the dead of Summer and I once had to work inside a commercial building where the heat was blasting because the HVAC guys had f**ked something up on one of the hottest days of the year.

What's your point?
