    It was right in the beginning of the work day and it was the first call, this lady was being personally offensive for reason so I put down the phone. The guy who is normally there in the morning said in other words it was my fault. Now I'm thinking I don't to work somewhere, where they value the clients more Tha their own staff. I wanted to say something but I don't want to lose my job because I need to help my parents out. I'm just so annoyed. And it ruined my whole day. And if it happens again which it will and they keep taking the clients side over mine I'm worried about what its going to do to me mentally.

    Welcome to the working world, absolutely everywhere is like this. Of course they value the clients more than their staff, they’re the ones enabling the business to operate by spending their money. Staff are cheap and easily replaced. You’re not paying the business’s shareholders who are in it for the most profit possible, the clients are.

    If you don't want to work there anymore, why don't you look for another job before quitting? Apparently it's always easier to find a job when you already have one.

    I wouldn't take it personally though - a lot of people get brave and mouthy when they're on the other end of the phone. Just keep your calm, deal with the situation, take five minutes to yourself afterwards and then go back to it. And never, ever take your work home - there's nothing it'll do but wind you up.

    Hey there,

    I'm in two minds. One part of me wants to say (since I'm working to get out of employment for similar reasons) to perhaps look into entrepreneurship. However, it is just the first day. Things happen. From my personal experience, I don't feel employment treats many young people fairly, very much a hierarchal structure. That's why I'm working towards launching a business. That's just me though, you may have just gone through a bad experience. My advice is that if you don't like it, start working towards something else. Don't be passive and accept that is all life is. Find something that is based on your passion. Or maybe this is a stopgap while you are working towards something. If that's the case, endure my friend. It'll be satisfying when you finally leave. But don't just work purely for the money unless you have a bigger goal you're working towards, that's not living. Anyway, I hope this helps.

    Regards
