Worky Works

How unfulfilled do you have to feel before you decide to quit your job in a bout of massive apathy? My bosses tell me I’m working to help people raise money for programs that are worthy causes, and I suppose that is true in the sense of helping kids play sports and go to camp is generally a good thing. But it also seems absurd that a kid’s sports team needs to fundraise at all, or that a Boy Scout has to pay $500 to go to camp, and all sorts of other things.

But set aside the ‘worthiness’ of the causes, and what am I doing? Convincing people to buy a product so they can sell people mediocre quality products that they either don’t need, or will make them fatter. And doing customer support/technical support for people who are generally very dumb, rude, or greedy. (Yeah, dumb is a bit of an exaggeration, some people are just technologically resistant.)

Sometimes I think that I would have been happier at GameStop still, at least there it was a product I actually cared about. How in the world do I deal with this every. Single. Day? I don’t, that’s how. My apathy skyrockets for this job almost daily, especially since the company’s policies regarding updating the websites actively make my job harder or cost me business.

Man, biographies are really hard to write because sometimes you just don't know what to write about and then you ramble on pointlessly for a while about your hobbies (video games, reading, programming) and end up boring your readers because they expect something witty and insightful (there are only two ways to save money, neither of which involves hookers) and then readership falls off and you cry yourself to sleep.
