Work hate thread. Talk about your job and how much stress it brings you!

Everything I have to complain about is admittedly pretty small, but I'll still complain!

Today I was left making drinks for the drive through AND handling the drive through window alone during the busiest time of day. I was mismanaging payment, handing out food, giving them drink I didn't have time to make, and constantly running out of stuff that I barely had time to restock. Yay!

Also wrestling with the half broken shake machine. We literally have to punch it to make it work.
  
Man, service industry sucks. I'm glad I'm doing something else this summer, but I feel for all of y'all who have to put up with that shit
  
I hate when people ask how much something is and when I can't remember off the top of my head it's "free".
Commence fake laugh.
I don't even fake laugh anymore. I just deadpan stare at them and say the water is free. Would you like a cup?
  
I used to work in retail and when things won't scan or are missing tags people would do that.

Recently, I was trying to buy this cheap batman boogie board at home depot and clearly they didn't tag the product properly and the guy couldn't find it in the system by the SKU. He was working really hard for something that was like 8 bucks. So, for the first time in my life I joked about something being free and he was like "honestly who cares" and just let us take it. Once in a lifetime response to that joke.
  
My work has ended for the summer so now I'm poor, lmao.

I work security at my university. Most of the time I'm walking around entire buildings for hours on end, gaining like 20,000 steps in four hours according to my watch. Although that's not even the worst part. I have to write logs on where I checked, when, and what happened although 99% of the time there was nothing. I still have to type like a full paragraph about what happened in each location even when there's nothing going on.

I also work from around 23:00 to 03:30 so my level of alertness doesn't help that.
  
handshake on the work over + broke summer.

my college job is... highly selective and mildly prestigious so i know i should be grateful, but i just absolutely cannot stand it. i find my coworkers obnoxious, my duties difficult and demanding, and honestly it's a lot more work than i get paid for (minimum wage, with no shifts long enough to warrant a paid break and a LOT of unpaid work). all in all i should be glad to not be doing it over the summer, BUT i'm having trouble finding seasonal work. i've been getting a lot of emails that led nowhere. i finally got a call-back for a job, but i missed the call by like 30 seconds and the number they left didn't work, so even though i called the recruiting company back promptly i think they hired someone else.
  
I'm a forklift operator. It's always just the same old, same old. It's very monotonous and I often find myself counting down the minutes until I can leave. I always dread going to work and feel great when I come back. Thank goodness I only have to keep this up for 2 and a half more years.
  
At least you can say you're forklift certified. Basically a superhero in disguise.
