    As if my day couldn't have gotten any shittier,

    instead of making it home from the office, I end up at the tire shop with a flat. Cherry on top: there's a Hooters directly across from here, with no way to get to it except 8 lanes of highway and a crosswalk about 1/2 a mile away. FML

    We are always short staffed at work

    because I have a coworker who ALWAYS calls in. I actually wonder why they keep her here. She calls in almost every other day. And we work twelve hour shifts. So we work two days and then are off two days....so that is a lot of missed work. Sometimes I wonder how she even pays...

    I tend to trust people all the time.

    Sometimes I tend to want them to like me and it doesn't always turn out that way.I befriended my supervisor which at the time sounded like a good idea I needed somebody to lean on and really just a friend. I have just started working on another shift after I received a promotion...

    I have many and potential pipelines.

    I could have really many potential deals. But I sucks when I can't create urgency and I am really afraid I am too pushy when collecting payments from my client. All this fears I have makes me even stress that I will burst my deal eventually by not following just because I fear...

    I really hate my job

    but I've been with this company for 10 years and have no clue where I'd even look for a different one or what I'd like to do, plus I doubt I'd get paid as much anywhere else and can't afford to earn less.
