I need to vent...
    #3569195 - 01/01/05 11:39 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have two jobs.  I spent the entirety of December and half of November working double shifts and 9 day weeks.  I make decent money, I pay my rent on time and I usually have enough left over at the end of the month to buy a few DVDs or a new pair of shoes if I want.

Job #1 just cut back my hours due to the fact that the retail industry suffers in the months following Christmas.  I can deal with that.  I have #2 to keep me busy, right?  Nope.  They called me tonite too. 

"We're taking on a new bartender, and we are taking away one of your shifts for a couple of months...I hope this is okay with you..."

So now I still have two jobs, but I'm only going to be working 20-25 hours a week.  :frown:

I'm okay with that for January because I really need a bit of a break, and I still have some cash to fall back on, but after I pay off my bills this month, I'm going to be FUCKED.

So I guess I'll be looking for something else...again.  I hate shift work.  Why can't I find a decent paying normal job in this town?  Why does it seem that I keep bouncing from one extreme (overworked and underpaid) to the next....(bored silly)?

I can go take a course and try and get involved with something that I actually want to do, but no one wants to hire anyone in January.

ARGH!  When does it get easier?!  Why do I suck so much?!
:thumbdown: :sad: :thumbdown:

Relax and enjoy your break from working so much. I'm sure you'll get your hours back eventually, they are just cut back for now. I think you could use the break anyway, it sounds like you work a lot. So sit back, light up a bowl, and enjoy your extra free time. :smile:

Hey there. I'm quite sure you'll find something - perhaps better than what's going on now - in the near future. Just be patient and seek out what is yours.

Maybe you guys are right...maybe what I really need is chill out and sit back for a while. I guess I am having problems doing that cuz I'm on "Go!Go!Go!" mode.

Oh! Maybe what is happening is that I'm dealing with this post-holiday yuckiness that I hear so much about. I am a victim of the consumers holiday. Who can I sue?

/me writes a prescription for chill.

Maybe you should look for a different kind of job, if you can. Some change might be nice.

I believe life is full of ups and downs, but in the end if your endure through the hard times the good times make up for it 100 fold.  That's my theory on life anyways.  Keep up the good work.  :thumbup:

Think of it this way. You could be homeless, pennyless, hungry, diseased, and all your loved ones are dead.

But that's not the case! Few. Quite a relief, eh? :smile:

I feel ya, man. I work in retail (Kmart:thumbdown: ) and they just cut my hours hardcore since it's right after the holidays. I only have this one job, so I can't afford to be going from 35-40 hours a week to 16-20 hours. I'm on a vacation week right now and I'll be starting the job hunt tomorrow. But like you said, not to many people are hiring in January so soon after the holidays. I have too many bills to pay to be working so few hours. Life's a bitch.
