Today, my company is doing so bad that I had to take down my symbolic first dollar so that I could buy a roll of crackers for dinner. FML

Don't give up OP it'll get better eventually.

Every success story usually starts out like this. A piece of advice: tell everyone, and I mean everyone, what you do and why they should hire you. Be shameless about it. Networking is the key to any successful business.

If this is YOUR business, then keep trying! Facebook didn't happen overnight! If you're just an employee to a different company... Yeah go ahead and switch jobs like #2 said

^You both made me think of the movie "The Pursuit of Happiness." OP, if you want it badly enough and try with everything you've got, it will happen. Keep your head up :-).

Jobs started in a garage. as long as there breath in your lungs never give up because giving up means means throwing away your dreams and then what will you have

Sorry OP, I say it's time to look for a new job. (:

op, the best thing about hitting rock bottom is that you can't go much lower, it's only uphill from here so just stay positive

Optimism: the only real-life weapon with unlimited ammo...

Is nobody else concerned why OP bought a roll of crackers with their last dollar, when they coulda had a weeks worth of Ramon?

Maybe it's time to switch jobs. Sorry OP, that's terrible

I agree with #2. Just as symbolic putting in the first dollar is, the same is true for taking it out. Maybe time for some introspection and a rethink if you haven't already. Whatever it is.. Don't give up, just be pragmatic about the "way" to achieve your goals

Or... OP started their own company.

@2, completely unrelated; but how did you find out your hair as well as cheetos are flammable? You don't have to answer here, but I encourage a follow-up!

@40 I posted a follow up comment that should explain it for the most part (:

Maybe it's time to look for other means of getting money?

Hang in there. I am sure things will start looking up

Those crackers of desperation always leave the worst aftertaste.

I'm gonna assume that your company isn't a restaurant...

Who are you? Mr. Krabs?

thats really rude

Not really. He was simply referencing the episode of Spongebob where it is revealed that Mr. Krabs kept his first dollar hanging on the wall.

Keep at it OP. Hard work pays off eventually, even if it doesn't seem it just now. Good luck!

Hopefully your company will get itself where it needs to be. Sorry OP...things get worse before they get better! I wish you the best of luck:)
