i am no longer a bank teller as of 2.5 hours ago. sooo now i am officially unemployeed. i have enough money to cover my bills for this month, but next month i dont think so.

so am i upset? yeah a little. had a very stable income that paid off my monthly bills and gave me enough extra money to have a good weekend.

then again im about 8,000 dollars in debt. so im in a pretty shittysituation right now. i have a few options, but for now im going to take a week or two, and kind of reflect. i havent been unemployeed since i was 16 (22 now) so this will be an experience no matter what. i just gotta stay positive, even tho i bought a pack of cigs today for the first time in 5-6 months lol.  if its one thing this site has tought me, its to stay positive in times like this, and also in times like this, is where i will grow and become an even better person then i am right now. the xp i got while at the bank was invaluable, both financially and socially. but its time to find another job, and probably a different lifestyle. this will kind of give me the excuse ive needed and wanted come to think of it. 

what is it they say "an ending is just a new begenning"

how wil this effect my game? well i guess im going to find out. but i havent gotten laid since 2008, so i guess it cant get much worse :p

Dude I worked since 03. september 09 till 20. January this year at the revenue. I hated it that much that I quit and in maybe one month I can join the army for 9 months and save a bit money then I will move to the best city in this country. I am 19 and will be at most for 3 months out of work.  I can´t buy that much but fuck it.  I live in a 20m² appartment and have one laptop to watch dvds and one mattress to sleep on it. Fight club style^^^


It is a new beginning because you will start a new job meet new people make new experiences.

If I would be you I would join the police. I can´t because I see to bad otherwise I would do it.

It will only affect your game if you let it.

So youre in the same boat Im in.   Lemme tell you, Im having shit luck with these jobs. Theres just too much competition. Not to mention the bullshit that comes from the recruiters/companies themselves.   I hope you havebetter luck than me  but now.. Its just like fuck it for me. The hiring process.. its just so damn primative, so damn soul draining. I wish I could do something else..

Good luck, hope everything works out for you.

 I hear ya man, I'm 19 and have probably handed out about 30-40 CVs this year (nothing yet, got a week's work in my dad's office over easter though). Due to the price of my accommodation, my bank not giving students an overdraft (I'm thinking of changing banks, but I'd need to re-do my student finance for it to have much effect, so I'll have to wait till September for an overdraft), £200 I owed from mid-2009 pre-university, not having a holiday job or a job at all over the summer holidays before uni, and neither me or my parents wanting me to rely on my parents for money (it's come to it once or twice), I can really relate to this. Good luck finding a job, you'll hopefully look back at this as the start of something great!

My game is pretty sucky right now but if anything, going through the process of barely knowing where your next meal is going to come from and somehow always finding a way (because there always is) has made me a little more confident (or it could just be a coincidence) due to the fact that if I can handle borderline poverty and financial collapse, I can handle just about anything wink

what'd you get fired for? just downsizing or your behavior/you?

I still see the same girls from like 1-2 years ago working at my local bank.

 I got fired from my summer camp job for my PUA tendencies... I was too upsetting to the AMOGs at camp and my partying lifestyle was too intimidating for the company as a liability.  One night i missed a curfew and i got fired.

It sounds funny now... and it really IS funny... but back then, when i was separated from friends and my kids who were very much attached to me as their role model...

It was really tough dude.  but I laugh back at it now because I now that it really helped me grow in the long run.

I've been homeless twice in the past 10 years, and worked a mere 3 months out of the last 18 months. I still have $6,000 of credit card debt although last year it was as high as $17,000. I live in a 20 sq.m. room in a boarding house.

For many years my sense of self worth was tied up with becoming a financial success. Because I lost everything through a failed business, I thought I could never find a girlfriend again. So I just didn't go out, and instead became a recluse for seven years. It affected my health to the point where I almost died on two separate occasions.

You're lucky to have the community at an early age, and to know that there is no connection. You can still find a woman even if you're nobody. It doesn't matter.

My best advice? Learn to manage your money, this will stand you in good stead for a lifetime. Get rid of ALL credit cards, they cost too much. Minimize the "stuff" you buy so you can remain mobile and seek out new opportunities. Take any job you can get, save a few grand and buy a house at foreclosure auction. I've seen blocks of apartments in the USA going for $10k, man. You can become financially independent in a matter of a few years, and never have to pay rent again. I've said this before, but I'll reiterate - anyone who can't make it in the USA in the current economy is an idiot.

BTW I'm glad you stayed on the forum, sounds like you'll be needing some buddy support until you get back on track. Hang in there.
