I fucking hate working full time but i fucking hate the weekends more. NEETS dont know what the pain is.

Saturday is terrible day.

Your day the sleep in and some cunt starts mowing is lawn at 8 am, your whole family is in the kitchen, mum is yelling at you to do chores. Your free day and you can even do what you want.

Any wagies know these feels, also does anyone have a job where they work a day on the weekend and then get a day off during the week.

I would love that


I try and put away at least 500 a week.

Torn apart by bullshit but I can make 1 more week, 1 more 500. Can't go on forever but I'm out of debt and just cracked 20k.

hippies I hang out with always giving me shit, trying to get me fucked up on weeknights, party till 4am work at 8 kind of shit. "Why you do it anon, stay and chill with ussssss?"

Don't know how to raise the idea with them that we're now 2 years into my new job. They're still sitting on the couch talking about what they want go to uni and do journalism or some shit. Haven't reminded them that they all told me I couldn't make it when I started, that if I was feeling anxious then I should give up.

I'm gearing up to start my own business and they're still waiting to be saved by someone else. I get to send money home to my parents and buy a case of whatever whenever, they still gotta pool money between 6 for rat piss and talk about how they could totally make money if they tried.

Anyway, it never ends but whatever, fuck the day, fuck the hippies, are you better today than you were yesterday? a couple of steps further? cunts will always try make you feel bad for rejecting their weaknesses.



oh and check it out tuesday - saturday 1/3 of the time. today I have a day off. gotta spend most of it going to different business hours only places like the council to do paperwork. 1 days every 3 weeks is an admin day so it's still a shitty writeoff of a day off.


If you're working 40 hour weeks how can you not afford your own place?



Oh ho ho ho, hello Mr 55 year old. It's not the 1970s any longer.



Nigga I'm 22 and have my own place.



Lots of variables mate. Where you live and house prices for one. You gotta really push yourself to own a house these days without being absolutely crippled with a mortgage.


>wake up at 4:30am five days a week

>want to sleep in the other two but my body won't let me sleep in past 5:30

Got a day off today which is nice but it'll probably just make me more depressed tomorrow


>Work 3:30am to 2:30pm

>Saturdays work 3:30am to 11:30am

>63hr weeks

>Get paid handsomely


>tfw NEET but want to be a wagie

Autismbux isn't enough money.


Can any of you wagies hook me up with a job? I've had a couple of jobs, but I can't find shit at the moment. On one hand, I regret leaving my last job because it paid so damn well. But on the other hand, I was completely burned out.



try and get into software testing. if you can outsmart a keyboard, you can test software.



>most of the same problems but I am also poor like NEETs

Truly the worst of both worlds. If I were a deadbeat who did not give a fuck about marks and never showed up then I could live like a pseudo-neet but I get anxious about shit and sperg out until everything is perfect.


When I was working 40-50 hour weeks I could not afford my own place. I might have been able to scrape by but then nothing would have been going into savings and the whole exercise would have been wasted. That was a shitty hospitality job though, if I had something more substantial like $40/hr or more then sure I could rent no problem.


Poor Waggies.



I can but why?

>sydney property prices are the most inflated in the world

>places i can afford will be inner city or apartment, no peace and quiet possibly worse

>live in a good suburb anyway, would literally need to pay $600 a week to find a place in a better location


>Finished uni end of 2015

>Got rid of my fast food job halfway through 2016

>Found a job pushing trolleys at airport

>Solid 75% of the employees there are African refugees or Muslim overseas students (seen some of the most retarded shit)

>Been there for about 8 months

>Casual rate $24, working full 38 hour week

>Busy period is ending so have to go full time to keep hours ($20 an hour)

Holy fuck if I wasn't able to leech off mummy and daddy It would be impossible to save. I pay $100 in board a week plus other living expenses. Just saving while I can.



Perfectionism at uni? That was probably my biggest problem. You have to let it all go at some point and just make sure you're doing the things that will get you marks.



>living in sydney

There's your problem.

Mate if you get into Security full time, You often work 3 nights then have 3 nights off. in a never-ending cycle.

I myself do something similar, I do own my own house however and every fortnight I get 3 nights off during the week. Every second weekend I get off. and I never work for more than 3 nights in a row.



File: d066652ba63f7c8⋯.png (19.66 KB, 559x451, 559:451, yay.png)


nice, very nice

also in the news recently they brought up 4 day working weeks.



> 4 day working weeks

You know they'd just increase the amount of time worked during the 4 days. The '8 hour' work day would be extended to 11 or 12 hours.


I work in hospitality so yeah, odd hours, odd days, work weekends. It's a shitfight to get any day on the roster off without pissing off either your boss or your work colleagues. I used to think 9-5 Monday to Friday was a curse. Now I think it's a privilege. Don't take it for granted m8.



Pity you do not work with someone like me.

>someone wants a shift off

>volunteer for it instantly

Always wanted extra hours.

Of course by the end I was working open to close every day, 50 hours a week.



Employing desperate uni students and young people is great for this reason. So naturally the government kikes the youth by enabling 457 workers and making it easy for 60 year olds to maintain a "career" in retail, etc

I don't work at the moment (doing full-time TAFE retard IT networking study) but was previously employed full-time. 8:30am to 6pm. Shit was so cash except the middle boss was a fucking cunt whom everyone hated and a lobotomite as he had a brain tumor previously. Didn't help him be a not-cunt but thats the way of it. During my 5 years there had manage to save up enough to move out and live quite comfy(saved over $20k) but I though it would be great to live with a childhood friend who was also looking to live elsewhere. Fuck my life I should not of done that. What a fucked choice I made.

She couldn't find full time work (even though she said she HAD work) so I had ended up paying for most of the shit and she ended up being a complete dump of a young woman who couldn't stop being a drunk and druggo. In the end I kinda forced her to become a stripper cause I was bleeding money fast paying for bills and food and shit but it wasn't enough. Killed the friendship, my savings and my job as she kept coming home at 3am in the morning (even work nights) fucked off her head and wanting to chat about the old times, which she usually ended up crying hysterically over as she though "No one understands me.. yadda yadda yadda" got sick of that shit real quick but that didn't stop her from doing it 3 years straight.

Now I'm back living with mum….

Who, when she was married to my dad, they only paid $50,000 for the place in the 80's. Now because of cocksucker bankers and their equally foul real-estate speculators, prices in my Sydney suburb are over a fucking million bucks. THESE ARE A MILLION BUCK HOMES!!!

I'm never gonna own shit here until someone dies. Fuck this city and fuck the Boomers, fags and everyone else who gentrifies areas. Fucking Cancer!!!!!

/end rant.



>saved over 20k

Were you employed full-time during that 5 year period you mentioned? If so, 20k doesn't seem like a whole lot worth of savings. Were you at least fucking that stripper/housemate/former-friend of yours?

Was paying rent and bills and such before I moved in to the new place with her.

No, I wasn't fucking her but was fucking her girlfriends, which was fun.

But yeah, ~20k ain't shit in Sydney.

If I had my time again, would do it all completely differently.

Bouncer work is good money but absolutely horseshit work.

Get yourself work at Construction Sites or Commercial buildings and sit on your hands for 12 hours and shitpost.

I'm actually starting a Security Company if you're genuinely interested in a job and willing to relocate.



I don't know if anyone else has noticed it, but there's this weird double speak with contracts against what HR and bosses think. Your contract might say 37.5 hours (not including lunch), but really you get in at 8am, leave at 5:30pm having a 30 minute lunch break at most.

Then as part of my job I will be randomly sent to a random mine-site for like a month in a row. I get days off supposedly for all the weekends/public holidays I miss, but in practice you get guilt tripped whenever you want to actually use them.

I have worked for a few different companies, but some have really bullshit work-cultures.



If you a salary basically tough shit.

You can do the bare minimum but you'll get the boot and won't be a "team player"

If casual just take your hours and breaks and fuck off.

I'm full time casual. Zero fucks given. I miss my schedules breaks all the time but still take the full amount of break time every day.


Salary Man here.

tl;dr In the space of two years I have transformed from a six foot blonde of strong anglo stock, into a japanese wage slave moments away from Karoshi.



Yeah this

Im full time casual and work like everyday is going to be my last shift


Man corporations are fucking pieces of shit, you should always act in your best interest and always remember that your company does not give a fuck about you. Get your work done and then the bare minimum.

Check your contact about the hours, maybe you should be getting an hour lunch instead of hour. If you are meant to have an hour and get half just leave half an hour early. if your manager says shit just aks what the contract says. Be careful i pulled this off once, companies collect so much info via computer watching these days they'll fired you for looking at a sluts favebook



Just imagine if you applied that drive to something else

Na but for real onya man.

Keep the big picture in mind, if you are earning heaps, invest it well and you'll be retired in 5 years.

u in property?



Nothing wrong with hard work by people who are capable of it. Keep being successful, invest your money and create your own dynasty.

>You can do the bare minimum but you'll get the boot and won't be a "team player"

says who?

almost every company I've worked for has had at least 1 lazy fuck that has coasted by for years doing the absolute bare minimum required of them

these people rarely get fired because they know to toe the line just enough that employers have no legal basis to get rid of them without causing a huge shitstorm and possibly getting sued for illegal dismissmal


Any wagie in WA willing to train and employ me?

So is it even worth doing work placement / experience or should I just kill myself already



Get comfy APS job. Work your 8 hour day, with half hour lunch break, just like everyone else in the office. No one complains about you 'being lazy' and you get ridiculous super.



Do the work placement. You never know where it could lead. Even if it helps narrow down what you DON'T want to do, it gets you out of the house, up in the morning, sets a routine.

Routine is something that makes you mentally healthy, and doing a job placement throws you in with others who are in the same position, baby steps to setting up your own network of friends.

When in doubt about what to do with life, do something….ANYTHING, just get the momentum started and you will be rolling along without realising it. Believe it or not, there are a lot of bosses out there that do look at volunteers and wfd as possible hires, Just have to find the right ones, and the only way to do that is get out of the house and participate.

Thank you based anon. A morale boost like that deserves a very rare Pepe.


How's it wagies. Unifag here.

Here's my day.

>early morning start because of lab work I need to do would take half a day and I had an afternoon class

>finally leaving uni around 1730

>see a braless girl and try to get some nice view

>classmate comes and talks to me instead

>at central see an asian girl in a short skirt doing a photoshoot

Seemed like my day was going to end lame but all in all that was pretty good. i just need to find a copy of that photoshoot



I almost regret not missing my train. Would have been good to watch it more.

I thought it might have been an exhibitionism photoshoot but I saw that she was wearing undershorts/spats. Unless she would take them off later…




Having a full time job is overrated




How crazy that a hot girl can just make your day

I know those feels

Its neat that this thread gets bumped, with i took another sick day today.


Apprenticefag here, working hard 70+ hour weeks, taking home ~$1500 a fortnight.

Get me off this wild ride.


I'm a NEET but I feel for wagies, dont worry maybe you will become a NEET in the future too


You blokes seem to have your heads screwed on.

Not him but i recently started security work, I only get like one shift a fortnight though, where about are you?



What kind of public servant and what do you actually have to do and what qualifications do you need? I have thought about doing this.



>What kind of public servant and what do you actually have to do

No specifics, but my remit involves managing a team of 15 staff in providing SME support to the department to assist in achieving their goals.

>what qualifications do you need

Depends on what job you're going for in the APS. For my position I have two undergrad degrees, some post graduate work, and dilpomas/certificates coming out the ass.

Really though to start out you don't need anything much. You can get in at a low level (APS2/3) with barely any qualifications (basically just year 12) and work your way up.



Mate cheers for this ill look into the APS.

I have a degree, so that will help do they look at marks and such. I only really care about earning potential. Should i do masters and in what?



I'm almost 23 and I'm only on $40,000, could be worse, mate.



> do they look at marks and such

As long as you passed no one gives a shit. No need for a Masters, and depending on your field of work and how good you are/how much you boss loves you there's the potential to have whichever department you end up in to pay for it.


>New female co-worker

>Already am fantasizing about dating/marrying and having kids with her

I'm so desperately lonely it's beyond a joke. The only gratification I get from work is seeing the balance of my savings account grow each week.

It hurts, bro. I feel your pain


Started uni this semester at a TAFE, like the other anon, and I'm just burnt out.

Might be because I'm fresh out of HS, but everything just feels like a slog.

>wake up at 5am

>3 days a week

>plus all the hours on work they don't tell you is due until the day before

I have no fucking time to get my Ps, have no time to get a part-time job, especially since I live somewhat rural without a car and I feel like I'm letting down my folks as I can't help out much due to study.

NEETdom was dull as fuck for the 6 months I was out of education; can't imagine that for a lifetime.

I only hope I can end up half as "successful" as the wagies posting here over the months. I don't want much, just a family, house and not be in debt.

Do an accountant course at TAFE; learn payroll systems and move to a rural town, 3-4 Bedroom Houses in rural NSW go for 100-200k; Payroll Accountants make 60-65k a year; stable work



It's engineering, and I don't think I could manage accounting as I already do that as a volunteer and its mind numbing.

Rural living is the plan, but I'm from Vic.

Anyone that wants a job in Vic (not sure about other states), go apply for corrections (prisons). Good pay, casual or fulltime etc. Mate makes 6 figures with no quals working 4 days a week casually.

They are beyond desperate for work and its my backup plan.



Hows the business coming along? Recently lost my job and need a new one, used to be in security some years ago.



> in Vic (not sure about other states), go apply for corrections (prisons). Good pay, casual or fulltime etc. Mate makes 6 figures with no quals working 4 days a week casually.

Are you sure your mate isn't exaggerating? Prison work here in NSW rural pays an absolute pittance compared to that. I realise different areas etc but still, mother of god!


I work two weeks on, two weeks off. The Monday after I get home the missus fucks off to work, drops the boy off at daycare on the way and I have the house to myself.

I've honestly teared up once or twice it feels that good


I'm having a hard time guys. Been living the dream working 13 hour weeks as a music tutor in Sydney the last couple years ($60/hour). Have come down with major hearing damage from the job. (Hyperacusis , Tinnitus) Will probably have to quit teaching for good. I'll have to find a QUIET wagecuck job pretty quick. Any suggestions?
