Training is straight from Hell.

I don't know if I will make it. I'm going into the store today to see if I can cashier.

Don't you dare give up on that HD job. It is called work for a reason, not play. This is too good an opportunity for you to mess up, so you just buckle down and take whatever gets thrown at you. Training is hard. It's hard work to train, to learn the basic process and be prepared to handle unexpected situations.

You can not run from this opportunity, this responsibility just because it seems tough. If you want hell, volunteer in Thailand, Indonesia, or Sri Lanka. No excuses, Wild, you are lucky to have this chance and you would be a fool to treat it as just another chapter in your life book. Home Depot has the potential to turn into a late life career, and you are running out of time for lucky breaks.

Who hopes you were just expressing hyperbole but can not tolerate the idea of you throwing away the best opportunity to come your way since I have known you...
