Work Horse


Job #1 : a temp job working for a not for profit group that does stuff, lasts 1 month
Job #2 : cashiering

A few weeks ago I was 2 days into a temp job I was pretty sure I hated and worried about my finances. Specifically that I had $100 left in the bank and $450 worth of bills to pay. I was desperate so I gave someone a call back about a cashiering job I'd carelessly applied for a month prior.

The wheels were set in motion. First she wanted to hire me for the bakery but loved my personality (what?! I know) so she gave me a cashiering position. Fast forward a week and a half later and my drug results are in and she wants me to come in for orientation.

I liked the temp job a little more at this point, although I still find myself hating it from night to night, but it isn't forever. So I went to orientation. Everything went fine. And money is money so I called back today to get my schedule.

When I applied I went with the anytime availability. You know, because I was DESPERATE. And she said all positions were part time anyway.

Big mistake.

Sunday: 10-2
Monday: 10-2 + 5:30-10:30 at job #2
Tuesday: 7-1 + 5:30-10:30 at job #2
Wednesday: off + 5:30-10:30 at job #2
Thursday: 4-10
Friday: 11:45-9
Saturday: 4-midnight

That's 37 hours and 15 minutes, folks. On my feet. Dealing with PEOPLE. Six days! (Plus 15 more hours at job #2)

What the hell was I thinking?
