Work now says no Laptops?
    #385934 - 03/18/10 05:32 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Well no more laptops at work.  Not sure how lax our night lead will be, I'll have to wait and see if she brings hers in.  If she does I'm calling it clear and bringing it in, but I mean I just spent a crapton last week on a high-end gaming laptop for a job that until just last week has been allowing laptops to work for 'educational reasons.'
Not sure how I'll keep myself busy, or what I'll do to make up the lost money, as I can't really return it, and now I'm stuck with a laptop I'm not even going to be using that much apparently.  Kind of a sucky situation.  It's a really nice laptop, I was going to use it to do some game design while at work, and sharpen my skills in Maya and 3d Studio Max.  I really wanted to take some classes and study for them, because the job requires me to sit around for about 13 minutes and walk the additional 2 of a 15 minute round, every 15 minutes for 8 hours.  So basically I do jack shit.
I work 11pm-7am, so I'm going to have some difficulty keeping awake, as I've pretty much burned out playing with an iPhone.  There's only so much you can do even on a jail-broken iphone before you get terribly bored of the fucking thing.  Unfortunately I'm at the point where I'm terribly fucking bored with my iphone, I just spent all my money on a PC and can't afford to buy books (Yeah pinching money wooh) and my sleep schedule's messed up so, I'm probably just going to sleep at work for awhile...  Not sure how that will go over.

But I want to use my laptop and I have no money.  I feel like I'm going to lose my job soon.  I mean it was too good to be true.  Gonna see if I can hit up student loans and just go to school.  Gotta quit smoking then. :frown:

Sounds like a sick job, what is it exactly?  Good luck with keeping the job and keeping your laptop at the job.  Does anybody know a legit way to make money by doing shit online?  That sounds like what you need.  I get emails occasionally (through school email so it is not a scam) asking me to take surveys for money but they charge like $30 fee to get started and I already have a job so I have not tried it.

It's an Asus gaming laptop with a Core2Duo 2.53GHz P8700 and a GTX 260M NVidia card.  I'd have prefered a Quad X9800 and the crossfired mobile 5870 setup, but that was like 2 grand more than I paid, lol.

LOL anything that wants to charge you money before you can make money is a scam dude. And just because it lands in your school mailbox doesn't make it legit. I send spam for a living so i know the system well, those survey offers are not legit brah, don't do it.
