Ehh stress

5 posts in this topic

I just got a full time job at a web design company for school portals, yay. I had assumed the job would be...well... web design but it turns out they have their own way of doing shit so for something that would normally take me 1 min takes me hours to do. I guess I have about a month to learn their system....at least I hope I do. If I cant figure it out by the end of the month I'll probably cry.

I feel pretty stressed with this alone but sure enough other shit has come up. First on my way home from work I noticed my steering wheel was getting harder to turn. I also could hear some grinding noises every time I turned the wheel so I decided to drop it off at the local mechanic shop for the night so they could fix it the next day. I was thinking it was just something small like the steering hose popped out or something but as soon as I pulled into their parking lot I noticed my driving wheel freeze up to the point where I could no longer turn it :/.

Today I got a call from the mechanic saying the power steering hose needed to be replaced, C/S Brake lines where leaking and needed to be replaced, rear brake hose needed to be replaced, wheel cylinder brake lines needed to be replaced...it turned into a mess. It came out to like $644 after using discounts. There goes almost all of my first pay check :(.

So I pick up my jeep after work, thanks to my dad driving me. I start it up and start backing up. I notice right away the brake light comes on but figured it was because they bleed the lines and there was probably some air pockets that was causing it to come on. So I started driving home pressing the brake every so often to make the brake light indicator go on and off. I noticed right off the bat it felt like I was stepping on air when pressing the brake peddle. I have to press almost all the way to the floor to make it slow down. When I got home I also noticed some leaking slowly coming from the bottom of my jeep again :(. My dad said it could be left over fluid from when they bleed the brakes before hand so I wasn't to worried. I had him drive my jeep around the block and he too noticed the brake peddle didn't have the normal hard feeling you get when pressing it.

So the logical thing to do would be to bring it back ASAP but since I just started working for a major company I cant take any days off yet. The place I took it too closes at 6 which makes it almost impossible for me to get their before closing since I get out at 5 and it takes me about 40 mins to get there. errr it frustrates me so much. Why don't they test these fucken things before giving them back to people.

My dad suggested I call them tomorrow from work and tell them that my brake light indicator keeps coming on and that the brake peddle goes pretty far down to the floor when pressing it. Then tell them your dropping it off on the weekend so they can check it.

The last thing that happened is something I'm not sure if I should be happy or not about. I'm still doing freelance web design and programming work on the side and the guy I get contracts through ended up sending me a lot of work this month. Since I just got into a full time job I'm not sure if I can handle taking on big projects while trying to cope with stress from work and my damn Jeep. The up side is I'll make the money back that I just spent on my jeep but the down side is I'll be working as soon as I get home from work for the next month. :(

My days feel long boring and the same. I get up at 7am, go to work for 9 hours, get home at 6pm, do more work till 9pm watch 1 or 2 eps of anime while eating, Then go to bed at 12:00AM. Some times I don't even get to watch anime :(. Blaaaa I'm so stressed. I wish weekends where considered 3 days long by major company's.

I'd defiantly call the shop in the morning and make arrangements to drop it off.

I know it sux but if you can shoulder a big work load it will help with debt.

Good luck with the new job I'm sure you'll get the hang of it quick :)

Dude, hang in there! I look up to Hentai to get me through stressful tiresome days, or a comedy series, or just belt in under everything with a depressing mode - depressing anime/ music. Look at it this way, at least you're getting to fix all this now versus doing it next to 10 inches of snow!


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

Thanks guys! I stopped by after work right before they where closing. They noticed the tube that they put in came undone so they replaced it with a new one and a better clamp. Brakes work again but the Brake light still comes on :(. They're not sure why it wont reset but said it will probably go away after a day or two. If it doesn't then to come back in. I'll probably take a look at my Jeep manual and see what to do. This used to happen with my ABS light.

lol Godgrave I'd fall asleep if I even attempted to masturbate, thats how bad it is for me right now lol. Also my dad doesn't have a job and doesn't go to bed till late so I never get the chance to look at porn anymore :(. Thats probably another reason I'm so stressed XD.

Work was pretty good today. I figured out how to do a few more things but ended up getting a call saying the site I was working on needed to get finished soon :(. I'm new and barely know what I'm doing and they're already pushing me to finish things :/.

I'm hopping things work out for me. I feel like I'm gonna burn out soon.

Damn man, I feel your stress. Hang in there and just be glad you don't have kids to add to all that. :meh:

If you feel you have too much, lighten your load a bit. You don't want to push yourself over an edge. Congrats on the new job btw! If that job is something that will last a long time tho, stick with it and focus more on it that your side jobs. Maybe finish up what you're already signed on for and then tell your job supplier buddy you have a more limited schedule?

O_O I'm not going to lie, that sounds dangerous as hell. A brake line job is extremely costly for a reason, it has to be done right. It doesn't sound like they did yours right. You probably have air in your master cylinder, I'd take it back and complain until they fix it so the light doesn't come on.
