I’m thinking about quitting one of my jobs
I have two jobs. I’m a photographer with a school photo company which I love, but it’s seasonal(meaning I work seven weeks in a row in the spring and three months in the fall). I’m also a cashier in a grocery store. I’ve been at the latter for seven years. It was the first job I got when I was sixteen and I’ve never had a serious problem with the job itself or the people I work with until recently.
The issue with the grocery store job is that it’s very unrewarding. People come in, I scan their groceries, they pay, “Thank you, bye.” I’ve learned how to do basically everything at this store from cashiering to grinding ground beef to filling in for managers when they go on vacation. There’s no future for me at that job. On the other hand, I’ve pretty much been promised a full-time position (year round) at the photography job whenever one comes available. There’s a possibility that a position is going to open after our spring photography season, but it’s not a sure thing.
To make matters worse at the grocery job, a girl who has been working at the store for three years has started bad-mouthing me to the management, claiming I’m being lazy when I simply cannot complete the nightly tasks because of last-minute customers at the end of the night. She also refused to pass along a customer’s praise about my customer service to management even though he asked her to.
Every day is getting harder and harder to work at the grocery store. I’ve brought my complaints up to management, however it seems to fall on deaf ears. I’ve gotten to the point SEVERAL times in the past three months of just walking out(which is something I have seriously never thought about doing and honestly consider reprehensible).
I guess I’m just stuck between a rock and a hard place. On one hand, if I quit the store and the photography position doesn’t open up, I need to find another job to take the grocery store’s place in the summer. On the other hand, if I stay at this grocery store much longer I’m worried that I seriously won’t be able to handle the drama that my coworker provokes and the unfulfullingness of the job itself.
Advice or insight would be insanely appreciated.
This is a question I’ve been struggling with for months.
Sorry for the absence.
I’ve been a very busy bee.
I love you. <3 Really, I do, though.
Aww, Thank you, anon. But can we just be friends?
I FORGOT TO TELL YOU GUYS.
My mom got me a gift certificate to a gun range to get my concealed carry license! =D It’s an indoor range. I’m so excited but I have to wait until I have enough time. =[
"Prove You’re Not Racist"
This is the most stupid demand I’ve heard SJ warriors give when the topic of racism comes up. When my post of “I’m a woman and I’m voting for Romney” sign went viral, that was a question that plagued my inbox for several weeks.
As humans, we have no clue what’s really in the hearts and minds of people. We can assume certain things from the actions of others, but unless there is definite proof or an admission of guilt, to assume someone is racist because they are white or conservative is to jump the gun. We are a society that shoots first and never asks questions later. We’re too content of telling people that they need to prove us wrong while we feel we don’t need to defend our position and prove ourselves right. People who get so overly emotional that they can’t think with logic are a lost cause when it comes to debate. When these types of people say, “Well, prove you’re not racist!” they then get pissed when people say, “Well, my best friend is black.” because apparently having friends of a different skin color as you means nothing to the “RACIST” screamers.
If anyone ever tells you to prove you’re not racist, (at least on tumblr) it’s a setup. It’s a game you cant win because there’s really no way (no matter what you say) that you can change the mind of someone who asks these kinds of questions. Don’t fall for it.
You don’t need to go to college and acquire crippling debt from student loans in order to be successful.
You just have to keep your eyes open for opportunity, take those shitty jobs for a while, and work your ass off.
I can’t wait until my boyfriend and I can move.
We live in an apartment above a young couple and their two children. The kids are CONSTANTLY running and when they run, it shakes our floor. Last night, I tried to sleep at 11PM and they were STILL running. Not to mention, the couple has screaming matches at 2AM every few months. We live right next to a vacant, open field yet I’ve never seen the parents take their kids out there to let them run around. Poor kids must be stir crazy.
My sister just had her second baby!
I’m so happy for her! Unfortunately I couldn’t go to st. Louis to greet baby Ben into the world but I can’t wait to meet him! ! :D
