Argghh...!!!!!!!

I apologise for the random nature of this thread, but this is getting to me, and I thought I would share my plight.

It seems like since turning 18 (in May) all I have done if fill out forms. Hundreds of Forms for banks, driving licenses, crappy jobs. And they take hours to fill in! I mean I am currently filling in one for a crummy job, and I have been doing the damned thing for at least 2 hours. It just goes on and on and on and on... Its a never ending form that I am sure will take me to old age.

And whats worse is I know that this is the beginning of the rest of my life, a life of form filling, being turned down (though I already have plenty of expereince of that ;)) and general stupidty on some one elses part, as you stand there in bank after bank talking to inept people who haven't a clue about anything with a brain cavity the size of a pea, yet still their brains manages to rattle about. I wanna be a kid again, its soo much simpler then :)...

Don't worry, Ras. In my estimation you'll always remain 16 years old ;)

I like pushing paper - its one of my joys in life. ;)

You'll get used to it, and you'll become much more proficient at it as time goes on, I'm sure. ;)

Being an adult is tons of fun, or so I hear. You get to work a 9-5 for someone who couldn't do your job and make a meagre 5-figure sum of it every year, so you can afford to hire people to overcharge you to fill out the forms for you! I don't know about you (and I just turned 18 as well, in early June), but I am way excited. :D At least you get government-sponsored healthcare in England (or did you move to California already?) :roll:

9-5 ?!?!?!

I wish it were 9-5. I worked about 85 hours last week and I only have 1 job. Can't complain about the money, but I would take less to work less.

Yeah, filling out forms is annoying. However, now imagine you wouldn´t only have to fill out your own forms, but also sign the forms of 30 to 80 people who need your approval signature for lots of stuff, from a day off to training certificates to being issued equipment.
After signing 95 documents one day, I changed my signature (which was my full name up to then, and it is a longish name) to a simple symbol.

I know quite a few people who have a "work signature" for signing bits and bobs when they can't be bothered to sign their full name.

Forms are a pain to fill in, the really annoying thing is that the questions are never quite the same so you can't have standard answers.

I'm sensing a little bit of frustration. :)

Anyway, forms are one of the more dull things of life. You can spend hours filling them in only to be rejected for whatever it is you're applying for. Luckily, there's the internet now so you can fill in forms on your computer, send them and get your rejection in just a week or two.

Most of the forms are one-time-only shots (that is, when you actually get approved/hired/whatever) so it should end sometime. I hope you'll still have some spirit left after this ordeal. ;)

My name is a pretty long one too so I have a designed a smaller signature (read: blob) so it's easier to get them to look alike.

My advice..go to university, it's great

I'm second year and I still don't have any sense of responsibility.

Also avoid supermarket jobs and positions in kitchens. These jobs are dangerous to a persons mental health. If you want a good job go into security. You get paid to be bored aparently

One thing though, to get into uni you have to fill out alot of forms :mrgreen:

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha wait till you graduate from college or some such nonsense then it is endless cover letters and resumes and more and more forms. These Forms include Leases, Mortgages, Loans of all makes models and types, forms for jobs, w-2's, Insurance of all types and of course applications because not only do jobs want your resume and cover letter but you still need to fill out an application and did I forget contracts why yes I did. Get used to forms they will be with you till you die.

Forms are societies way of keeping everybody in check...so, better get used to them. And when you were not yet legally grown up, somebody else had to fill out those forms on your behalf. How happy do you think are the guardians/parents of all those new grown ups that they can take up the form filling responsibility upon themselves now??

Yuck - I know some guys who worked security, and really, its not good all in all. And really, it is quite boring - which is never good. If you want to be paid to be bored, go work for the government or something - its safer, has better hours, has a pension, and pays better than most other jobs. And if, on the off chance, you are assigned some work, its normally pretty easy and non-stressful stuff. I'm sure there are people out there who disagree with that, and many of them would be right, because you have to find the right department to get that kind of a job. I've found it in two departments myself. Worst experience ever is to have a job where you could not show up for a week and have no one notice you were gone...

Don't get a Job as a Canvasser the hours suck and almost everyone doesn't want to listen to you. Plus you end up sounding like a dirty tree hugging hippie.

My general signature is a random number of up and down lines with a cross where I feel the "t" should be.

The one day you don't bother turning up is the day the boss goes looking for you. It's a law.

Eff that, I just drop off resumes and call them repeatedly. Explains why I've only been declined for two jobs in my life. One, I didn't have enough volunteer experience (who does that?) and two, the guy was a tool I didn't want to work for him.

And I thought I worked a lot.. 60-65 hours per week. :?
Also.. 9-5 is for loonies. Who the hell wants to wake up then? I work midnights and go to bed at 8:00 am. ;)
