Internship Update:
I am slowly breaking down.
I have to endure all of that stress.
Both physically and psychically.
I keep cutting myself without wanting it.
I am not attempting suicide lol.
I applied as an IT person.
What I am doing has almost barely to do with IT tho.
I am most of the time busy carrying heavy stuff like refrigerators, placing new washing machines, setting TVs by building them and putting them on the shelves. The shelves are hard to reach. At the same height as my head.
Fuck that shit already. I am not going to miss that place.

    First of all, I hope you can get those cuts properly desinfected and taken care of, because they look nasty and painful. And: that sounds nothing like an IT position, what are your reasons for doing this internship? if it's for getting work experience, I'd say quit, because this isn't getting you any, and you seem to be risking your physical and mental health. Stay strong!

    @CoffeeNcode It is a requirement of my technical college where I am about to get my college degree in IT.
    I have to endure another 2 weeks.

    Please cancel your internship, for the sake of your health!!!

    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- do yourself a favor and report those working conditions to your college. you are walking proof that that is not a safe working environment you're in

    If it was for the work experience I would have quit at the first day, but since I have to do it, I will have to stay stable.
    I even talked to the deparment chief about it and he was like I am going to ask the "real" IT department and let you know. This was last week. He did not tell me anything. Thus I decided to go and take a look myself. I went to the department. Asked the team leader and told him about the current situation. He was like I will talk to your department chief about it or come and have a chat with him personally. I left that building sadly, because that was not a good sign. If there was a position for me, he would have been more positive and more chatty with me. He came to the store and I was smiling, because that could have been the chance of me switching positions. Nope. He deeply dissapointed me. He came in, waited for my department chief, and talked about how the shipment of a machine to his house will be and fucked off.
    Seems like there will be no switching.

    I will talk to the store department chief tomorrow and tell him that I can not do all of that anymore. He should just let me sit infront of the PC and do my thing.
    I really start missing the excel tasks he gave me at my first day.

    Depending on your country, it could be illegal

    @elcore I am from the same country as you

    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- okay, that sucks. at least ask for protective wear so you don't injure yourself more. I mean, they can't expect you to get hurt at work. and if they refuse, remind them there are worker's rights in place for a reason (at least I hope you live in a country with decent ones). and keep on ranting here and try doing things that relax you in your free time. we got your back here!
  • 4
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- Then it's definitely illegal
  • 4
    @CoffeeNcode thanks a lot!
    I will just tell him to stop giving me such tasks. And that the coworkers should stop giving me tasks as well.

    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- good idea. keep us posted please!

    Why did you feel the need to post a FRESH cut without a trigger warning?

    You don't know what kind of damage you are doing by posting a picture of a FRESH cut. Do you realize that you could be triggering someone?

    Was this done out of self harm? If so, please stop before you get addicted.
  • 5
    I'm so sorry. My commented sounded rude. I was just kind of angry that there wasn't a trigger warning or anything.

    I'm sorry you have to deal with this at your job. I hope things end well for you.
  • 3
    Wow what a shitty place
  • 2
    i hope you're ok now bro. that cut is bad and so your internship.
  • 4
    Do talk to your school about this, and ask if they can get you an internship somewhere else entirely. That company is pure poison to your mental health. If they wanted you as an IT intern, they should've let you apply at the "real IT department" (what the hell does that even mean) in the first place. So yeah. 2 weeks at this rate isn't going to be worth the risk of a mental breakdown. If you have to start all over somewhere else, so be it. But get away from there at all costs! Your health is more important than silly pieces of paper saying "certified as having been an intern at place foo".

    Sorry to hear that. You should consider getting a pair of safety gloves.

    Get it treated and wear watch or some band on your wrists, then contemplate what you should do next.

    @Michelle it is fine.
    I forgot that you had such a thing against blood.
    I am sorry.
  • 1
    @Condor I will do so if the department chief rejects my "just let me sit infront of the pc" offer.
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT-
    I don't have anything against blood. As a matter of fact, I love blood.

    I'm just worried you could be triggering someone. :)
  • 1
    Nice cuts, but you should stop. There's no point in applying for any jobs if you're just going to destroy your body.
  • 1
    @Michelle you love blood? What are you?
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere
    Not in a weird way or anything. I just think it's cool.
  • 1
    @Michelle I can't wrap my head around that.
    To me, it's an annoyance. I can understand people who can't see blood, but how is it cool?
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere
    You wouldn't understand.
  • 1
    @Michelle but I want to. I'm just curious
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere
    Trust me. You wouldn't understand if I explained it to you. The sight of blood is almost thrilling in a way.
  • 1
    @Michelle I think you're mutating into a vampire.
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere
    Vampires feel hungry around blood, not thrilled lol.
  • 1
    @Michelle have you read "the strain" by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan? In the book, the process of mutating into a vampire is described in a very detailed way. The first stage is not hunger for blood, but rather a thrill when blood is seen and some other symptoms (like throat ache and neck stiffness) that seem to become weaker when in contact with blood.

    @RantSomeWhere
    Well fuck. I don't know what to say then lol.

    @Michelle good thing that you don't know where I live :P
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere
    I already know ehere you live.
    Miller's Planet :P
  • 1
    @Michelle heh, I don't think that vampires will be invading Miller's Planet anytime soon. It's yet to be colonized by humans :P
    (you're actually the first one to address that reference)

    I know where @rantsomewhere lives.
    If you give me some of that "Red Ice", I will tell you where he lives, @Michelle.

    @Michelle he lives close to my town
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- so it was a Detroit reference. I thought it was something else.
  • 2
  • 2
    @Michelle ok... ok... he lives about 60 kms away from me.
    That should clear it out.
  • 1
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- 60? Much less. You're from the city that does not exist, right?
    (Btw, I feel ashamed of not having heard of Detroit until two weeks ago. What a masterpiece)
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere I just saw it in the memes first. Did not make sense to me and I could not care less about looking it up.
    Then I saw pewds playing it. Well... that got me hooked up hella fast ma boi haha
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere oh... uhmmm... I am not really from within that non-existent city. I am not sure if you know Minden. What is the partner city of Minden? Now you have it.
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere But you are in a city with the first letters of it being "Güt" afaik. Now let me make the calc.
    "Fahrroute beträgt 66.29 km"
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- I have no idea what the partner city of Minden is.

    Also, I live in the city southwest from the city you mentioned
    ;)
  • 1
    @RantSomeWhere you know Lübeck", right?
    What is the almost same city with the almost same name?
    Do not say it. Just blink, if you know it.
  • 1
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- oh. That place.
    I thought you were talking about a twin city, so I was surprised to see a city next to Berlin on Wikipedia.
