    I have no excuse. I simply didn't feel like going in and was thinking about quitting after the first day. I've since realized I made a dumb mistake and want to go back. I don't even know who my supervisor is. Did I blow it? Any advice?

    Yeah there's like a 99% chance you are done.
    If you are really desperate and have no shame you could try going in tomorrow but they will most likely just tell you that you don't work there anymore.

    One thing I've learned as I've gotten older is to not let my feelings dictate my actions so much. A lot of the times you have to do things you don't feel like doing.
    Your feelings are just transient impulses that quickly fade away, they should rarely if ever be your guide for anything.
    If you want to make smart decisions you need to adapt to long-term thinking.

    I don't have any delusions about going places. I took the job because I wanted a physically active job.

    It's a Supply Chain Solutions warehouse. Not package handling.

    It's an entry level, $14.50/hr job. That's pretty easy pay to come by. It's really not that special. I didn't realize I would be told I would have to work several additional hours every day when they hired me. Those few extra hours :censored2: up my day and interfere with my other job.

    Also, the employees are insufferable and snide.

    I didn’t miss a day for the first 17 years and then clowns like this come along. SMH- the younger generation will be the downfall of the USA. Don’t blame the Boomers.
