i'm so stressed i could cry. - May 28th 2009, 04:09 PM

so i've jsut started a new job not long ago at all.
its in fod catering serving pizzas all day.
this week has been my last week of school holidays ever as i leave school for good on monday. and i've spent the whole week working my socks off!
originaly i only asked for 8 hours a week but this holiday i've worked 21. i've worked saturday sunday monday tuesday and thursday. (today) and i wont have a day off tomorow because i got to go back to school for half a day to revise. leaving me only having wednesday off and saturday and sunday coming up. No doubt they will make me work saturday though!

its jus so unfair! i work long 5 hours a day , and i get not break and nothing to eat because i dont have time to eat in the morning!

i tryed talking to them but they said they have to do this to me because its the holidays!

urghh its probably me being stupid but gosh i just want to curl up and cry i'm that exhausted , tyerd and fed up.

okay rant over lol

You don't know about my past, and
I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it's not meant to last,


imi , sophie , me

Hey Sophie,

You're not being stupid at all, this is important. It's unfair of your employer to be asking so much of you when they know of your school obligations. They should have other people work more shifts as well to compensate for holiday times. Right now, it is probably too late to do anything if you do want to keep the job. To prevent anything like this from happening in the future, try to book off days that you are busy in advance, as much as possible. Personally, I would try to find a new job if I could, because I wouldn't want to be treated like that and given additional stress - especially with school obligations as well.

~Hope everything gets better with work and school.

well when they offered you the job if they said it was a certain amount of hours they can't just keep upping your hours as much as they want. do what you agreed and any extra, do if you can, if not, tell them that you can't. some employers are just assholes like that. i mean, i got fired from this shop assistant job for refusing to work over time because i wanted a life.. it was ridiculous.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Have you spoken to someone at school? I mean our head of year told us, any problems with employers and exam times and things, just let me know and Ill soon put them straight, for those of us not quite sure how to approach our employers...

Good luck!

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.
