I need some advice because "the system" is driving me insane atm. I have no problem with an honest days work for an honest days pay, but it's
totally obvious to me that the current system is not fair. First up, there's a near absence of any jobs other than generic shop assistant where I
live, so that's the only jobs open to me atm. Doing mindless repetitive customer focused work day in and day out for a pitiful minimum wage, watching
people around me make work the centre of their existence to the point where they become obsessed about it, HELLO! This is not a free human race, its
economic slavery. At least in the past, the slave owners were honest about their intentions. These days the powerful make a big show of how we are
"free", but they've rigged it all so that if you don't play ball, you have nothing (no home no food). At work I'm expected to acknowledge a
customer as being superior to me, apologize to them if they make a mistake and say it was my fault, agree with everything they say, and basically be a
slave/servant. In return, my work pay me the absolute minimum they can without breaking the law. Almost everyone there puts work at the centre of
their existence, and hate me because I put a higher value on my leisure time. They sometimes say to me that on the days I am not working, I should
really be working because "it's not like your busy doing anything else". Yes I am doing something else! It's called having a life away from a dead
end job. They think that I exist solely to work.
It is horrible for me, knowing that the entire system is deliberately made this way to make us helpless, and dependent, it's a totally pointless
system that doesn't need to be this way. But I'm called selfish because I don't want to waste my life away making an arrogant CEO rich. Every day I
feel I'm a hair length away from quitting, but then I'd have no money, so I'd need to find something else. But then I think I'd just run into the
same problem. So much time is spent on work that we are forgetting what's really important in life. How can I cope with this?
