My dumpster fire "job" had the nerve to tell me that it is putting me on involuntary Leave of Absence. It said that if a doctor writes a note that says that my back pain is better, then I do Lot Attendant without accommodations. If my back pain is getting worse, then Involuntary Reclassification to a job without heavy lifting, if a job is open. She said that the only job without heavy lifting is Cashier. Otherwise, Constructive Dismissal. Home Depot has a sign on it that says "hiring". Home Depot has also been cutting part timers' hours lately. It's like it's trying to get rid of you, without making you redundant.

It is only reasonable to apply for jobs for so many hours a day. No "friends", "family", $$$, or car. Zero job skills. Don't like anything. Not good @ anything. What is there to do during spare time? Exhausted all the time and always have to be close to a litterbox.

The past four consecutive days, no work.

The only things I did:
gastroenterologist
pharmacist
safeway twice
trader joe's twice
cvs
library 3x
pulled weeds on three days
two naps
a lot of time on the internet
emotional overeating

Sick, tired, and bored, of myself, everyone else, and everything else. For many years, I had no job (just a couple volunteer jobs). Long gaps in work history, make it really hard to get a job. Also, zero job skills, autism, and weirdfuck personality.

exhausted all the time

have to be close to a litterbox @ all time

wasting a lot of time in the litterbox

zero goals, hobbies, "friends". pretty soon, home depot might have the nerve to make my worthless corpse redundant. really do not wanna panhandle (social anxiety). but i've been applying for jobs for a longfuck time. plenty of jobs. restaurant, retail sales. minimum wage. unskilled labor. going nowhere. i would loiter outside home depot with the day laborers, but they keep screaming "Chino!" @ me, like that's my name or something. if i had the nerve to scream "mexican", "latino", "chicano", or "hispanic" @ them, i could get made redundant. ("at will" employer). home depot takes "unity and diversity" very seriously. (even though plenty of employees have the nerve to mispronounce my non-English name, and a manager had the nerve to tell an employee to throw away her fish b/c it "stinks"). racial diversity, yes. not Myers Briggs Personality Type diversity, no.

no $$$ or energy to do s**t with.

bored when i do nothing.

ahedonia

masochism

dissociated

detached

In my opinion that's a LOT of stuff accomplished in four days.
I doubt I'd do that much in four weeks. Actually, probably not in four months.

Are you still working?
I'm trying to follow what happened with your 50 lbs accommodation.
It seems like you were redundant or put on leave.
Somewhere else you said you're working tomorrow.

I hope everything will work out OK with Home Depot.

I would stay in touch with Home Depot and let them know that you are interested and available for the cashier job. Good luck with everything.

Isabella:

Almost everyone I interact with, appears to be energetic and require much less sleep than me, and they accomplish a lot more than me.

June 4, human resources told me that I would start Leave of Absence on June 18. However, human resources still continued to schedule me for work. The following week, I asked human resources if I go to work on June 18, b/c I was scheduled for that day. She said, come to work every day you are scheduled until she told me I was taking too long. Right now, the schedule has me scheduled to work through July 28.

The doctor filled out the form. I followed the instructions and faxed the form to the number on the form. That was two weeks ago. Human resources has not told me that Corporate (1) made me redundant (2) made me a cashier (3) is letting me be Lot Attendant until December 2024.
