There comes a time in every womans life deep inside your brain says forget it but you dont act upon it immediately to be sure there is a plan b. After several weeks of 5-10 hour weeks my boss gave me 20 hours. This 20 hours still isnt enough to pay gas to make it to work. My boss lectured me saying i didn’t get enough Ollies reward cards he plans to cut my hours nothing personal business is business.
I told him when you take money from my paycheck it take food out of my mouth. That helps me stop from being homeless you can call it what you want but it sounds pretty damn personal to me! I told him call it what you want sure i will get your damn Ollies reward cards. He felt accomplished like he really got to me. He said it was a great motivator. Little did he know it motivated me to get job applications in to a company who appreciates me enough to give me hours. After all business is business. My lips are already chapped kissing his ass anyway.
I have 2 college degrees. I thought that would open doors for me. I didnt know those doors are mininum wage jobs i am supposed to be overqualified for. I dont think i am overqualified the people who i go to job interviews think i am. I appreciate any job that helps me not starve. Ollies isnt helping me from not starving. I been making about $400 a month rent is $275. Things are simply not adding up! My husband wants to know why cant i help him pay the bills when most my paycheck goes to groceries.
I am not begging for hours anymore not from Ollies a minimum wage job. I know i deserve better so on my day off i am going to start putting in job applications. I refuse to settle for less. When i get a new job i will simply use the quote..” No offense to you but business is business” to my boss as i walk out the door.. I feel sorry for my boss. He never tried to do better. He just settled. I however am not that person. Job applications than new chapter of my life. Lets see where i go from here.
