Time Off!

For the past month and a half I’ve been busting my butt working like crazy between my two jobs. I work at a care home (I’ve been trained in three departments: food services, laundry, and housekeeping), and I work at the Superstore Photolab. Needless to say, these four departments keep me pretty friggin busy. And I’ve had it up to HERE with bad scheduling from Superstore. They always screw me over and schedule me on days that I’m already working at the care home, which has resulted in days where I have worked up to thirteen hours in one day! That is insanity. I’m not a machine, and I know if I keep this up I’m going to physically break down. My body is screaming from lack of rest….everything hurts! Plus it’s just downright frustrating that Superstore agreed to work around my schedule at the care home and now they haven’t been doing that for the past three weeks. They even schedule me for shifts that directly conflict with my other job. I’ve had it! Starting tomorrow, I’m finished with the Stupidstore. There’s no way I’m going to run my body into the ground just to make a few extra dollars.

So in about two weeks I’ll be on the hunt for a new job. I need something for the fall in order to save up money for my trip to Sweden. Anyone have any job leads? :) If you do, let me know: it would be so much appreciated!

    YES!
    You definately don’t want to ruin your health for a few mesely dollars. Besides, there’s gotta be something better out there in terms of work. Congrats to sticking it to the people who don’t listen to you!
