From Russian Blue:
So, I have to work Thanksgiving Day.
At Red Crafts.
AT 4 PM. I specifically volunteered for the 10PM-4AM shift in order to spend some time with both families in my life. (My boyfriend and I plan to get married in the summer, and this is the last chance for some of his out of state relatives to meet me before that happens.) WHO THE HELL NEEDS SOMETHING FROM RED CRAFTS AT 4 PM ON THE DAY YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE?!?!
I have a manger that revenge-schedules me, too. When I asked her to not schedule me during church, where I already had that time marked as "UNAVAILABLE" in our scheduling system, my hours dropped drastically. I have less than ten hours a week, and it's more stress than it's worth.
My parents are guilting me into keeping this job right now and I'm taking so many credits at a well-known and very difficult university next semester that I had to petition for an overload. I'm going to keep this job till after this semester, get lower-than-usual grades, and hopefully get their blessing to take out a small student loan to support my few expenses next semester. My soon-to-be-husband has already agreed to support me through my last year of college, so I can start translating to get a portfolio. I hope to get out of Retail Hell forever. I'm just so tired, guys, and my scholarship depends on my grades.
Happy Black Fucking Thursday! Let's all join in the middle-fingered solidarity salute....
