Don't hate, congratulate!

Ok, I did 101, so I’m not on the probationary period. Maybe that only pertains for a period right after you’ve been approved.

Recap of today, I spent my planned offday from work doing this shit. I put in a solid 6 hours, while drinking apple ale.

Today was loss leader day for me. I probably will earn $15 in 6 or more hours. Comparable to idiotic, but.............I’m looking to spit out numbers and increase the approval rate, which will potentially open up more options in this silly little game.

I’m having trouble walking away from it. It’s like a Tetris or drugs, at least at the moment.

Report it to your Congressman who accepts bribes, cheats on his expense reports and misuses government travel privileges...

Two wrongs don't make a right.  No love loss for politicians here either.

I hear you MF...

 

Just to show you how fucked up our government is, we have a federal facility in Boyers, PA that is the headquarters for all civil service pensions. I visited there a couple of years ago and their automation consists of IBM mainframe computers running COBOL.

 

Yes, 1960s technology processing millions of transactions daily here in 2018... Their phone number is 1-800-321-1080, $25.00 to the first poster that can reach a human on the phone.

I called, I wasn’t motivated by $25, rather I like a challenge. They are closed however the message doesn’t give me the impression it would be hard to speak with a human.

Maybe the message is smoke in mirrors. I won’t remember or be determined to call on Monday.

Wow.  Hard to believe it could even be supported any more if it goes down.

I pulled one, for $1, to come up with a contest idea. I consider myself creative.

The subject....... future of drones idea tournament..........I’m torn to just suck it up.

FUCK that. I returned it. I can’t associate in material related to nerds and creepers, even for $1 straight cash homey. I wouldn’t be able to go to sleep.

OK, I’ve become abrasive, mean, and short with my cohabitants, aka family.

I feel mentally exhausted and could best describe it to the scene in Shawshank Redemption where Andy is teaching the younger inmate so he could get what I assume is a grade or high school equivalency and the guy freaks out with all of the stress.

That is how I feel.

I earned $60, but after all is cleared, maybe $75, and I feel like I’m involved in some sort of mind controlling experiment.

Hopefully I get back to reality tomorrow and balance things better so I don’t come close to this feeling again.

If I could describe how I feel through musical example, the below song is how I feel.

WTF...

I just read some KFC receipt from a year ago. They asked me to basically list the two items purchased and how much they cost... then write in time and date that's on the receipt.

What the fuck is the point of this? :scratch

My first ever job in Silicon Valley when I was still in college was similar to what you guys ( I had to listen to calls and transcribe them to tune voice automation) are doing for slave wages while I got paid $25 per hour in 1999.

Merlin probably does this to be able to afford the finest top drawer expired meat in the Midwest!

Definitely a Trumptard job. Can't believe anyone does this shit.

No wonder they're pissed at Mexicans who get paid decently.

I'll try one tomorrow, pal, but if they're as tedious as this receipt crap... no way I continue. Craziness.

I was like you. I did one like that and said f it. After a little over a month, I have it another shot and almost always have done the surveys, aside from the soccer scores yesterday.

You know once you takes one and you don’t like it, you could return it.

I incorporated using turkopticon this morning.

This is something I could navigate/use.

The hitfinder/scripts thing seems intimidating.

Hits seem slow this morning so maybe I’ll take monkey’s advice to learn something new.

When I’m in the office I won’t be doing this, so things are going to slow down a bit for me. Still, my $5 goal a day is reasonable.

204 approved hits, 98.08% approval 63 pending $63.45 earned, probably 18 hours put in after yesterday’s loss leader marathon session. Also a mental breakdown last night.

I’m good to go now!

Yeah, but once I took it I felt obligated to just go ahead and finish it.
