back when I was a youngn I was working this part time job after school to buy a necklace for this girl. PB&J sandwiches everyday for lunch since I always paid for my own stuff, paying for gas in spare change.. haha it was an experience.

For me, definitely my doctorate degree as it was quite a struggle for me to get it. I just had a lazy mindset and was totally unsure about what I wanted to do my thesis on. It took me quite a long time to earn it, and I finally have it. It was a long excursion there as I had been working and trying to put up with the limited memory the computers at my university have, but I did get it in the end.

I work hard for everything...it just that some tactics work, while others do not work. I only use effective tactics/strategies in order to put my hard work to good use.

I have done factory work to keep my family in heat for the winter, cold for the summer, entertainment/education for their minds, and food for their bellies. Those who know, know. Those who don't, don't if you can help it. One does what one must, and I'm grateful for the opportunities I was given, but I'll never forget the heat and the pain. There was this one lazy bastard who did half the work of everyone else, and I was terrified I'd get fired because I couldn't make up his lazy fucking work volume. I was scared my family would freeze and starve, that Christmas would be devoid of gifts, that my loans would fall into default, that everyone I cared about would suffer because of this fuckhead. Thank God management was smart enough to pick up on his bullshit and fired HIM instead of me. They LOVED me. Said I was the best they'd ever had. I am honored by the compliment.


I worked in a factory too. I feel your pain too. The one I worked at would not let me have time off. I don't mean vacation. they made me work every day for 3 months straight and denied time off. Until I got in a car accident on my way to work and got a broken back from it. I called my contractor since I'm not a permanent employee. they fired me from my job because I could not return to work in 2 weeks from my injury. The place is called Flextronics anyway. Its in Texas. Not a place you want to work at. They are known to hire the most people in Austin and lay off the most people in Austin

I worked at a far more reputable institution than those which keep themselves entirely staffed with temps, firing anyone who experiences a run of bad luck (as you did) or those who are getting too close to becoming a full employee with benefits, wages, and rights temps don't get (which it sounds like Flextronics does). The labor was hard, the hours were difficult and left me both isolated and virtually devoid of time off (meaning I was exhausted all the time), the environment (while mostly safe) was difficult to work in due to extreme temperatures, dust, and vapors, but the job was a good one as factory work goes. The management, while lofty in their demands and firm in their expectations, were all reasonable people who checked in on everyone from time to time to make sure morale was still up, and there was a general sense of camaraderie among the laborers. I'm glad to have moved on (no one wants to stay in factory work forever), but there are worse lots than the one I drew at the time.
