    if you get your CPA you will have no problem finding a job but I think your going to hate it with a passion.

    Well I did the Public accounting route. The work isn't too bad, it's actually fairly interesting, it's the hours I hated. I'm trying to get into government accounting or private. I think I was bored where I was because it didn't require me to think too much. But anyways yea.

    Maybe while your collecting unemployment or what not you can do some volunteer work. Help at a soup kitchen or something. Then at least you'll be doing something rewarding and not sitting around feeling sorry for yourself.

    This is one of the things that is wrong with this country. Unemployment is supposed to be for people who get laid off or otherwise unemployed THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. I have seen so many people get away with abusing the system in this regard it makes me sick to think that my tax/unemployment dollars are going to stiffs who value work so little they fall asleep at their job, and in effect, laugh it off.

    should never have opened this damn thread while at the tables it tilts me so much.

  14. doubt I'm eligible, though my recruiter said to fill it out. I'll check back with you.

  15. As I recall, you were bitching about not being able to surf the internets when you got this new job due to the fact that your desk/workstation was out in the open amidst everyone, so how the fuck do you just fall asleep in that spot. I'm sure your mother is real proud of you son. tsk tsk

    Yea I know I'm an idiot etc etc. Like I said, the power of boredom was too powerful.

    I'd be very surprised if he were eligible for it. From what i've seen, people that are fired with cause generally are not able to get it. It is supposed to be for people who, like you said, are laid of through no cause of their own. While I'm sure there are people who abuse the system, it is supposed to be for the people that genuinely need it, not those that just happen to fuck up.

I'm gonna continue to study for the CPA and hopefully that government job will come through but like i said CA is in a huge financial hole right now so yea we'll see, it probably won't be there any time soon. In the mean time, I'm gonna talk to my recruiter tomorrow to see what I can do. Really appreciate the advice. You OT guys make me humble.

    lol

    I wish I had sick skills in poker. But alas I don't, and I also just withdrew 90% of my br on Full Tilt last night leaving me with like 180 dollars, so I really can't grind either.

  22. Don't feel too hard on yourself. If the job wasn't right for you then its best you get out early before you invest time and feel horrible as a person. Life is about being happy and nothing should come ahead of that goal. Jobs in finance/accounting aren't for everyone due to the hours and being ordered to do things like a slave.

    I would look to work in a smaller firm where you have more control over your daily activities. Working at a high pressure environment like PIMCO, which has hundreds of billions under management, might not be right for you.

    So don't feel bad for yourself and don't take the shit that your parents give you. It only makes you feel worse. Figure out what you want to do. I'm sure you can get a recommendation from an employee at PIMCO who liked you.

    I mean, I don't mind getting fired, I deserve it. But what bothers me is my long term prospects of employment and my mom is sad about it even though she knew I was a temp. And although I didn't plan on staying there long, I liked it better when I had the say on when I left. Anyways there are some positives but right now the negatives outweigh the positives at this moment right now. Hopefully things will change soon.

  25. Man. All the edits. even the title of the thread and responses point to one thing...

    You really need to see a therapist. There's something wrong in your head to be so self-loathing and woe is me.

    Yea, what's the cure for a guy who can't accept what's given to him and bitches and complains when he should be thankful for what he has? I deserve all the flames man, probably more for fucking royally like this. I know a lot of Oters would've gladly switch places with me over where I worked and the pay I was receiving. Now I have to try to find another job that pays decently with this situation on me now. Thankfully I have plenty of savings, but my mom is more concerned about work instead of money. I guess that's why I come here, you guys are sorta like my therapists. I mean I know I should seek professional help but you guys are real people with a wide contrast of life experiences, who give me a lot of different angles and viewpoints which I greatly appreciate, something 1 therapist cannot give me. Anyways I need to go see my recruiter in the morning, going to sleep now, will check on this later hopefully will update with good news/vibes after the meeting.
