Question work - February 17th 2010, 02:39 AM

I started work at Wendy's a short while ago. I don't know what to do, I've been bugging my parents for ages to let me work, but now that I am, I realize I'm not mature enough or old enough. I never do anything right, and I'm scared it'll soon be too time consuming. I know that if I don't fill out my availibility for 2 weeks in a row I'll be fired, but that doesn't seem right. . . I am scared to tell my parents I'm too young, I've never admitted to being wrong before, what do I say? okay, i kno this is a stupid thread and not important but watev i neeed advicee!!! please?

I wouldn't give up on the job just yet. You aren't all that young to be working there and it'll take a while to adjust, especially to a busy place like Wendy's. No one does everything right, mistakes will happen.

There is nothing bad about admitting you were wrong, in fact it shows maturity to be able TO admit you were wrong, especially to your parents. They'll appreciate you talking to them about it.

I'm also moving this to School/Careers.

I'd agree. Give it some time, and if after you think you should be adjusted and still aren't, then talk to the manager and your parents. I think that would show more maturity.

But in the end, the most important thing to accept is that no matter how alone you feel, how painful it may be, with the help of those around you, you'll get through this too.
