jesus christ its 2007 back home so either i was born in their 1988, or I’m like…12
if i could go back to being twelve while keeping what i know now holy shit i’d love that
I really, really, really appreciate my job
but the fact that 2 of my bosses- one a scheduling manager- assured me that i would be easily scheduled 25 hours on a bare minimum to ensure enough money for my monthly bills, and understood that i couldn’t handle a major cut in my hours for even a week because of said bills, and agreed to not do that upon my multiple interviews on getting the job…
but then turned around and cut my hours from 25-27, to 18
pissed me hella off. of course, it was just a thing that happens when sales are shitty, so i kindly reminded my bosses of the expenses i am responsible for (including the amount my parents are paying just to make sure my message goes through) and they kinda got it and said they’d do what they can… i got 20.5 hours this week.
so now i’m training on register and line and everything else so that i can get these fucking hours back
and now they’re doing this thing, where they’re giving me an extra day off, and then scheduling me 10am-10pm the next day
this is literally a step in the right and wrong direction
and i feel like i wouldn’t be so frustrated if i didn’t know of people hired after me that are getting more hours than me, or others that are getting twice as many hours as me who literally just blow their money in the wind and think its a serious deal to buy new guns & new ammo.
and succeed in getting more hours for that
but i gotta step back and let seniority take its course
but its sooo frustrating
and i see others that have such a shitty attitude at work, and do their bare minimum job, and THEY get 34 fucking hours
either way i’m still known to be hard working and super happy and i got the store an official compliment or two, a couple enthusiastic customers, and hella tips, so there’s gotta be some momentum
im just running in quicksand
Remember Wendy Davis?
You know, the badass democrat who fillibustered for 11 hours straight to conserve women’s rights in Texas?
Well, this wonderful and amazing woman has announced her campaign for Texas governor!
Let’s show her some goddamn support!
Her opponent, Greg Abbott, is all about “traditional values.”
What fucking good have “traditional values” ever done for anyone?
Not a goddamn thing, that’s what. Vote for Wendy Davis.
It really makes my heart swell how hateful my mom’s not being and it really makes me ask myself why the fuck did i let everything get this bad. this is such a good/shitty feeling because on one had i’ve cursed myself into such a shitty situation, yet on the other hand the amount of relief i got from telling my fam and all is ridiculous
