Being pushed into something I need to quit... - August 25th 2014, 05:32 PM

Ok so at the time I seemed a good idea I was really looking forward to having a small job etc then one of my family members became really bad over the weekend. That they need help being cared for and with me I put family first. So before all this I attended a body shop party and told the woman I was really interested she filled the form out with me and such added her on Facebook and she just wanted me to have a starter party with the next 2 weeks! Then my family member has became bad and I told her the situation which she told me I can still do the catalogues. But no I can't family comes first... She pushed me into doing the catalogues and having a party no matter what... When I told her I just want to quit.. Now I'm stuck with something I really need to quit but she doesn't want me too.
Has anyone ever worked as a body shop host and quit it what did you do to quit. Thanks

Hi Jodie.

I'm going to move this across to the Education and Careers forum, since I think you'll have a better chance at getting relevant answers there.

I'd firstly like to extend my sympathy that a member of your family has been taken ill - I do wish them the best of luck, and as swift a recovery as possible.

If you feel that it's not going to be possible for you to continue working for the Body Shop, or hosting a party, I'd suggest that you firmly but politely discuss this with your boss. It's understandable, perhaps, that she wants you to continue working (since that's probably helpful for her) however it's also unfair to make you do things you don't wish to when you've got other things on your mind. You can perhaps offer to host in the future; for now, though, get in touch and explain that you're sorry, but are unable to host the party or do any other work for them at the minute - stick to your guns, and try not to be intimidated if your position is found disagreeable.

Good luck, and I hope your family member can be restored to good health as soon as possible.

Skittlify me up...

I would tell her no and if she persists, tell her you do not appreciate it. Then block her if she does not stop. Look at it this way, she doesn't care about you. She cares about your money.
