I hate my job! Or do I?

I'm sure you're boss would be okay, it's nothing personal...just bout money, which I'm sure she would understand. Just make sure you give her enough time to train someone else.

Hmm, I wouldn't be very happy with the ex full time employee either ....

Right now I am getting about 3 to 5 hours a day 3 to 5 times a week.. that DOESNT cut it. I am used to 35 to 40 hours a week. :doh: How do I survive and not hurt anyone's feelings in the process?? :|


Girl you gotta put on you 'bidness' hat and do what is best in the long run for you ... especially if this is kinda an annual event. Steady hours and a stable wage are very good things.

Yes you all are totally right.. I do agree. *sigh* it's just SO hard to get it all out and done without feeling like I've bailed on her. :( But I know something has to be done. It's about time. :roll:

Just my 2 cents worth but isn't she kind of putting her own needs ahead of yours when she gives more hours to her daughter? She doesn't seem to be as concerned about loyalty and your friendship as you are... (Just something to think about.)

Yes.. I see that. But then she comes to me and says how she is trying to give me more hours and how she really needs me.. :? So I feel bad and stick around. I know I know..Im a fool but I feel like I have a fear that she will hate me when I do go. *sigh* It's a long story, so very short version: I worked at a bakery for over 6 years and was extremely close to the owners and when it came down to me finally leaving, mind you I gave them a months notice and they were only without me for 2 weeks before they hired someone else, the owner still went around telling customers and other employees that I left them in a bind and the job was just too much for me.. :shock: which was so not the case. So from there I have this big fear of the same thing happening. Silly I know.. but there none the less.

I guess I just have to put on my big girl pants and get over it!

An update: I talked to my boss today and told her what I was thinking, about getting a new job but keeping this one.
Well to my complete and utter shock she said, that yes I needed to go look for another full time job. That they could not honestly tell me what the future of the chocolate store was. They could not even pay rent and owed the landlord over $8000.00 and the corporate head quarters (the chocolate store is a franchise) wont even give them any more supplies because they owe them thousands. We are also out of milk chocolate and Guitard wont give them anymore. :shock: was my reaction. She said that they were unsure that they would even be open past mid september.

So after a good cry this afternoon I am resigned to the fact that I really do have to find a new job ASAP. I feel like a walking shell of a human being right now. *sigh* So much for loyalty. :?

Ps when was she going to tell me any of this??

But good thing you talked to her when you did, and now you can go for that Hallmark job without feeling guilty about it. :)

Good vibes were sent via USPS; so they will get there shortly :P Besides you need a good job with excellent benefits anyway.

And keep in mind this might be a good thing ! I was working for an attorney as an office monkey and the only way I found out how bad things were was when I got a notice from my bank that my paycheck bounced... the icky lawyer finally came clean after all the return fees killed me :shock: This human piece of poo actually pitched the idea to work for free (AW HE** NO!). This is the thing that spured me to go back and finish a degree :)

Work for free. HAHAHA!!!

Oh, he was serious? Like, out of the goodness of your heart?

bakergirl, I'm glad you can at least go find out about the Hallmark job with a completely clear conscience, even if the chocolate store isn't doing so hot. I hope you get the job and soon!
