Can't do it.

I am ashamed to say this out loud, but I will. I can't do my job. I am physically incapable of doing the job. I am a very hard worker, I know this about myself. But I cannot do this job. It comes down to this: I do the job half ass, taking 'short cuts', doing things the wrong way, the quick way, just to get them done, or I do it right, and not be able to finish the job on my shift. I am a careful worker and doing a good job is important to me. I've found another job. I gave notice last night.

I've never had a job that I couldn't do. Not in my whole life.

I'm sorry, that's a hard thing.

You found it a challenge but kept at it, giving it your best shot.
Honestly there are some things we just can not do no matter how much we tie ourselves inside out.
Don't feel ashamed or guilty, the Universe has something else in mind for you.

Once again, it is your honesty and integrity that shines Deb.
I applaud you for the decision you have made.

I would not have been able to do this job either. Not physically. Perhaps in my youth I could have. But not now. You'll be just fine on the next job. I had one like that once...part-time...and I enjoyed it even during the hectic hours.

It wasn't a good fit for you! You did the right thing and you have another job. Congratulations!

You did your best. You did what you could and gave it your best shot. Let it go and move on. Tomorrow is another day. ((HUGS))

You have to be honest with yourself. And right now, with family and school, you have to be able to pay attention to those priorities and have a job that's a slam dunk. Good for you!

I couldn't do my last job, either. It was a horrible year just getting through it until I could make things right again. I feel for you, and hope that you can find a way to get things done until you can find the right thing for you again.

No shame in seeing that this you and this job are not a good fit. It is excellent that you can identify that, see it for what it is, and get yourself out. That is good for you and the company, as they can find someone that is a good fit. It is better all the way around.

No shame in that. Sounds like wisdom to me.

Kinda relieved to tell you the truth. Been worrying about this job and how it's been knocking you around. Time for a new page, my friend. You are a page-turner if ever there was one!

It is nothing to be ashamed about. You realised it wasn't for you and you did something about it! Hey life's too short to be unhappy!
