Ehhm I have a different experience in the friendzone. More of a
"Sir, your application is remarkable and you meet all our qualifications, but I'm not really sure if we're hiring or not"
"You literally have fired and re hired the same employee like 4 times in the last year"
"Look, we value you as our best, most reliable customer, but I'm not sure if we're ready to hire you"
"You've already told me I'd be an amazing employee"
"Yeah but that was like... Hypothetical."
"Just give me a shot, you won't be disappointed"
"Fine you can be an unpaid intern"
"That one employee came back and is pissed that we took you in, you have to leave now"
"Well fvck you then."
"Bye we'll miss you a lot you were a great customer"
"No you won't. Shut up."
Sorry for the long post but this is my experience
@icantfindmyfamily, I would just stop shopping at that store. Then maybe they'll realize how valuable you are and hire you.
@icantfindmyfamily, why would you shop at a store like that? Everyone should have a store like HEB. HEB is such a nice store.
@TheMathemagician, I tried that, worked less than you'd think. that was a while ago though. I've decided I'd rather be unemployed than taunted by a store that's overpriced anyway. Maybe their payroll is too high because they've had too many employees
@JaH1995, or just grow all your own appliances. I have a full functional microwave tree, I don't need stores anymore!
@icantfindmyfamily, Best decision there. The right store that fits your qualifications will present itself in time.
@icantfindmyfamily, I'm not siding with the store, but I think you're looking at it from the wrong perspective. It's obvious that this store in question truley values its customer, and feels like your skillset would be idea for their open position. However, there are a few things at play that prevents you from getting hired. A, do they have the kind of budget for such a good employee? Surley someone with your skillset and commitment would deserve more than just minimum wage, which, while it might seem like a lot for this other employee, and even the store istelf, what that store is paying the other guy isnt really what they should be paying you once hired. Another aspect; do you have the right /style/ that the store is trying to appeal to? You might be Old Navy's star model but I think the GAP is looking for a different angle. Not nessecarily better, just different. In conclusion, you might also want to consider what the store thinks it's market value is worth. If it's a
@icantfindmyfamily, flashy superstore with all the bells and whistles, but it thinks that it cant compete with the run down discount mart across the street, do you really think that it is in any position to make an effective and intelligent executive desision to hire you for the well being of its future? No, it's focused on the current trends and styles and its continuing to fall behind which is not your fault as a loyal customer that you can appreciate what the store's soul is made of rather than what it sells. You just need to understand that the store is not in a good place for it to accept you, and if it did it will only end in ruddy shifts, bounced paychecks and random and unjustifiable writeups for minor infractions. Let the stores upper management figure out whats best for the future of the company before trying to become a part of the staff. Give it time, and in the mean time, maybe go window shopping, some other store is bound to notice your hard working attitude.
@niffler, the store inuendoes are real.
@icantfindmyfamily, dude Im so sorry brah
@icantfindmyfamily, "You're very qualified for the position, but unfortunately we are going to hire someone less motivated and less reliable. We will however call you from time to time and complain about the individual we hired instead of you."
@1NutParking, too true
So relatable, just got friend zoned by my local department store
Man: " I've been working here for three years what do you mean I'm not hired"
@Vakidis, I think that works better for friends with benefits
@Vakidis, "I'm going to come and stay in your store everyday and there's nothing you can do about it".
This is how the friendzone works...30% of the time.
@Ajunta Pall, 60% of the time it's how guys paint it, and 10% of the time girls do it on purpose to make guys jealous. (Source: experience and eavesdropping)
@Ajunta Pall, 10% of the time, every 100% everytime.
@Ajunta Pall, I'd give it more than 30% of the time, I've seen this happen fairly often. I know it's not 100% and people definitely take advantage of people's feelings and string them along, but I'd say those things happen at least equally. Source: I'm a woman who has talked to plenty of both men and women about and have experienced both friendzoning and being friendzoned
@Ajunta Pall, that store sounds like a slût tbh
@Ajunta Pall, 10% luck, 20% skill...
Why not just Fvck the store without permission then?
@KaijuKoitus, this is why we can't have nice things
@KaijuKoitus, Thanks for advocating rape 👍
@KaijuKoitus, *tumblr bust through wall like kool-aid man*
"Check your privilege. Rape culture. Men a pigs. This is what I'm talking about. Kill all men."
@Star Wars Qoutes , OH YEAH
Do some guys overreact about getting rejected. Yes. Do some guys continue to put their energy towards courting said spurned love interest. Yes. This is their own damn fault. HOWEVER. When women fully and consciously abuse a man's emotions for the perks (attention, bills being paid, food, casual sex and companionship) then they are no better than the men that break girls lying to get in their pants. "Oh yeah, of course I can get you that modeling contact" be humans to each other.
Should've asked for a manager
I've been under the impression the friendzone is when you DO make it clear you like them, but they reject you and stay friends. You know, "the dog died, but you can keep it". Frankly, if you're spending time with your crush and never make a move, you're being a pvssy. Not being friendzoned, not unrealistic expectations, you're just not trying. I believe this because I'm currently in the friendzone with someone I've barred my soul to, and now we're worse off than when we first met. We practically ignore each other, but we're still "friends".
I'm kinda bitter about this.
"You've been looking for workers to fill positions!" If you know what I mean.
At what point do you realize that they don't want to fvck you and you should just leave them alone?
Maybe, just maybe a person can like another person but not be sexually attracted to them. I don't know about anyone else but an intimate relationship usually involves sexual activity.
I know, I know...how dare they not be attracted to me! They should be able to get past that! They're just shallow and selfish!
Man the strawman is strong here
Oh c'mon don't sit here and tell me that the girls have no idea the guy likes them. They are not that innocent
Not all analogies are apt.
I literally laughed to hard at this
Filling positions you say?
Why is it man/employee and not customer/employee?
I still think this is how jobs should work.. Yeah, experience and qualifications are necessary things, but it really is a pain trying to have 30 years of experience to show off to everybody when you just graduated high school yesterday.. Whether the skills be in that field or just plain old social skills. Standards really are too high these days and it's ruining the futures of those with no one to turn to for advice, aid, etc. This whole American "make your own path" and "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" thing isn't working anymore.
Less like you're not hired, more like unpaid internship.
