For the past few months, I've had the misfortune of having to work three jobs to keep my head above water financially. This is getting increasingly harder to do now that one job is done for the summer season and the remaining two are constantly cutting back on hours. I've worked almost 50 hours a week sometimes working two jobs a day for three months. But now I find myself barely working twenty hours combined for the last two weeks. How am I supposed to pay bills and rent when my jobs are taking hours away due to "budget cuts" but are hiring new employees every week? One job refuses to turn the AC on past 70 degrees. Hello, that's warm air you have blowing in the store. It only gets worse because the front door is constantly opening, letting in the hot air from outside, making it almost unbearable to stand there without getting a headache or feeling faint. Then add the amount of bodies in the store at any given time only adds to the muggy feeling in the store. No matter how many people complain about how warm and uncomfortable the store is the store manager refuses to turn the AC down a few degrees.
This same store manager told me he couldn't give me the vacation time I requested to go to a family reunion in Maryland. Okay, I was upset but I accepted it. That's until I look at my schedule and realize he gave me four out of the six vacation days I requested. WTF!!!!!! Which means not only do I miss the reunion because I'm working the days I need to travel to Maryland but now I have the week off from work. I can't stand this place!
This place is concerned about the most trivial things except for taking care of their employees. I wish I could mention the store's name but I don't want to risk getting in trouble. One thing I can say: if I didn't need the little money I'm making I would've told the store to kiss my ass as I walked out the door.
I'm frustrated and angry that this is where my life is at this point in time. I'm stressing so hard because I haven't made enough money to pay my rent for July. What am I to do? I don't want to ask my mom because she has her hands full already with my dad who's been sick on and off for the past few years. I don't want to move back home but I don't want to get evicted either because my jobs suck ass! I've already placed applications at new places and are hoping to hear back soon.
I would like things to work out for me just once this year. I need a save and I need it soon!
