I don't want this job, but feel intimidated and despondent Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just really would like to hear other peoples opinions on my current situation.

    I am turning 23 in a couple of months and have been out of work nearly a year now, I did the University thing- pointless, done some temporary jobs etc.

    I applied for this job and got offered it, the problem is that its 45 minute to a 1 hour drive away and I hate driving as it is, secondly I thought the job was completely different to how it turned out to be on my trial day! I have to drive a big carrier van. and I will only be slightly better off than if I got a job full time in a retail shop!

    I am in no way saying that I don't accept that I have to work in my life, but now I feel guilty for not wanting to take it and find something else instead of driving around in these recent hellish conditions!

    Secondly my brother keeps saying I am sponging off my parents, when I do always help out at home, but because he has a good job and is moving out soon he keeps making me feel so low, and his girlfriend has recently started moaning about it to me, I just feel like telling them to **** off and mind their own business and stick to their own lives.

    Thirdly I see no incentive as my social life is crap, in this generation I wont ever be able to move out anyway and have my own place, and I am more happy to just look for a little job locally and spend my days 'lazing' around.

    Opinions wanted on if you can understand how I feel, and what you think of the fact my brother and his girlfriend nose in on my life, and finally what you would do in my situation and would you take the job (working with adults with severe learning difficulties)

    Cheers James
