I got too big of a library fine they conned me said if I return a movie they would take I’d off then lied .. I didn’t bother going to back to argue with these rip off artists . I don’t support crooked library’s ..
If you got a fine, then it isn't the fault of the library.

You don't have a computer, they do. Figure it out. Stop making excuses, you really do sound like a child when you do this over and over and over.

You asked for help, this is how you do it. You take responsibility for yourself and your actions. At this point, it is clear from your postings that you absolutely have no interest in a desk job or any job at all, because you don't want any responsibility at all. If you have access to disability, you definitely should take it, because your parents, I promise you, want your butt out of their house. If you are 18+ and doing nothing but sitting around all day playing on your phone, then you are a waste of their space.

If you know how to type reasonably well and own just one suit, go to a temp agency and apply to be a receptionist or similar. You have to make sure you are able to present yourself like an adult, which I think may not be something you comprehend. Get up, clean yourself up, and go actually apply for and get a job.

Had no idea PCs used were so cheap I just haven’t had any luck every model I had went defective and charge port died or gpu in one .
Sadly I got no income so no pc ..
You don't need a library card to go into the library and use their computers. They don't stop and frisk you on the way through the door.

I just have to find a way to beat insomnia, tbh and I can’t use that library pc because they stop it after $10 fine , no they conned me said if I returned the movie I had no idea it was overdue and they would get rid of the $30 fine and they were line con artist ‍..
i’ll just have to apply to places on something else.
This ear pain I’m in dealing with and have no answer for is more debilitating then any of those poor excuses I had , and it’s real but not enough to consider slave trade disability.
This week I have been unable to sleep till five or 6 AM on average.
And I can’t stay awake on no sleep or I pull all nighter to try to fix it.
Could always work afternoon shift!!!

I'm in the Engineering field...trust me, pay rates are not the issue!
While I am sure this is true, we are at a point where the bottom $ may not be enough to get good employees.

Employers must start looking at other perks, the company culture, and willingness for Flexible Work Arrangements. If your company won't allow for flexible work for engineers, another company will and they will get the employees.

Insurance that isn't garbage is another thing companies call a perk. I can't imagine how much of a pain it is to deal with bulk insurance purchasing. Crazy thing is, the size of the company doesn't even matter. I've worked for companies with over 1/4 million employees and had garbage insurance. I've worked with tiny companies that have excellent insurance. Everywhere in between too.

Companies not having work from home options for jobs that don't deal with face to face customers will start to see a decline in worker quality. People don't put up with that anymore. It looks like a lot of people are finally realizing companies can't exist without good staff, and they are the staff.

There are a ton of good places to work, it's just very difficult finding one.

Good points, I absolutely consider my insurance to be just as important as my pay check.

I have luckily had excellent insurance with every job. I kind of suspect that good insurance goes along with the territory for my field, as I have worked in industry and hazardous areas exclusively.

It's a rather interesting climate in the tech market. The demand for workers still appears to be there, but I keep seeing articles on the exodus of many workers. Developers have long been saddled with unrealistic deadlines and long hours (with no overtime pay if salaried). There is a growing push for recognition of what they contribute to the company, along with more reasonable work demands and better opportunities for advancement. Your points are very well taken.

We're lucky to have a lot of very good software firms in London (Canada) like Digital Extremes, CarFax , Big Blue Bubble, Red Rhino and Info-Tech Research Group. These are mid-sized companies that tend to have a much better work environment compared to the big players.

I've been working from home, with ZERO pressure to return to the office since march of 2020 when the office originally shut down for COVID. I work for a company with 50K employees around the world, so they have the pulse on what is happening worldwide and the safety of their employees is priority. This pandemic has shown how most folks can work remotely and still produce, sometimes MORE than at the office. The trend lately has been that the labor force available hasn't grown...and it is aging out. So, when you try and hire folks, there is no new blood and this is a serious problem. We aren't the only company in this position in our field. There is more work than folks available.

In this current climate, it is hard to establish "culture" when no one is interacting in the office...this has been lost to a certain degree because of the pandemic. We used to have all sorts of activities throughout the year where we interacted with our peers, and it was genuinely FUN.

Agreed on all points!

Skilled labor is certain a scarce commodity.

While I do somewhat miss the "office culture" I don't miss the drama.

I haven't worked in an office in over 5 years, and I never plan to again. I have almost zero work stress and can get everything done that I need to. I'm not giving that up until I can retire.

You should start a Youtube channel if you're good at talking and influencing people. If you are disable you should go on disability and pick up a side hustle, i.e., Uber, Lyft, etc. Have various streams of income if you can. Get out of debt and lower your cost of living. Getting on the hamster wheel and/or the drudgery of a job might have passed you by. Don't buy a car unless you can pay cash and then don't spend too much, invest if you can so you can have some passive income.
