I should be happy , I have great kids , a great husband & a roof over my head but I can’t help to say my job makes me so miserable. I can’t ever take time off to spend with family , my family is going to Texas in August & I can’t even get off due to the fact everyone keeps quitting along with one of my shift leads. Being a manager is absolutely draining & if I could redo my decision I would. I do this for my kids so they have what they need. I’m trying to push through school but my motivation comes & goes. My 2 days off I get bothered all day about work , I just need a damn break 😩so over being short staffed & it all being on my shoulders since I’m the manager .. rant over
I know the feeling of can’t getting the time off when you need it. Sucks that you might miss that family vacation. August is still 2 months out so hopefully things might become steady and you’re able to go. Those family moments are important, maybe you can get at least a three day weekend undisturbed. Take sick days if you must. Continue pushing through with school, it’s going to pay off. You’ll eventually get a different job that makes you less miserable and is more rewarding. Sending you added motivation. I’m sure your family appreciates and understands the sacrifices you’re making. However, you deserve a break. Your job will survive without you for a few days.
Sadly , I don’t get sick days being a manager at my job. They don’t care if you are sick you’re sick expected to come in & worth the rush & if your crew can’t survive without you then you must work your whole shift. Every time I get caught ahead I get thrown 10 steps back. Now with losing one of my shift leads who opens the store when I’m not here makes it hard.. 😩trying to keep my head up!
