I recently got a part time job at an office supply store. I been working for them for about four weeks now and I was taken off the schedule this week due to my productivity being so low.I enjoy the job but I suffer from a slight learning disability as well as a physical disability that prevents me from joining the military (the physical disability not the learning disability). I possess more of an introvert personality. I cannot explain things very well in person but I can write very well. I was hired on as a cashier and I guess they received several customer complaints on me even though I don't feel I did anything to provoke those complaints. I tried to be friendly to the customers and did everything I could to ensure they received the customer service they rightfully deserved. I've been told that I either look mad or tired all the time so that may have something to do with it.
The whole reason I wanted to get into retail is so I can become more outgoing and not be the quiet and shy person I used to be. Due to my introvert personality that might be easier said than done. Sales is definitely not something I could do for a career unless it involves firearms which I am pretty knowledgeable about.
I lost several other jobs in the past due to my physical limitations and/or my slowed ability to learn new tasks. On just about every job interview I've gone through my mind has gone blank, and I know for a fact I think and talk better in writing. I been brainstorming ideas on how I can utilize my strong writing skills to make money but haven't figured it out yet.
At this point I am running out of options. All the jobs I am qualified to do I am usually physically unable to do them or the manager(s) feel I am too slow at grasping new tasks and I end up getting let go. I was born with cerebral palsy, but I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I am going back to school to be a medical biller and coder so I can hopefully get the hip replacement I will eventually need without paying an insane amount for it then I'd like to pursue a career in law enforcement.
I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me but I'm lost at this point. I did recently start going back to church for some spiritual support since I've lost my trust and faith in mankind and I've become a more positive individual. I just feel like I'm not being given the chance sometimes. Anyway sorry for the long post, that's all I had to say.
