Gator Posted July 23, 2016 Share Posted July 23, 2016 so a few weeks ago, i checked my work schedule to see how many days i'd have the following week. 4 in a row. i wasn't looking forward to that; usually i have a couple of days off in between and no more than 3 days in a row at a time. but you know, whatever, i've done it before. the following week, my schedule gets updated again, so i check to see what goes on after the 4-day week. it always goes 4 days in one week, then 3 days the next, and so on, but i don't know which days are work/off days until the schedule gets updated (which happens once a week). so i go see... and there are no days off scheduled between the 4 days in a row of one week and the 3 days in a row of the next. it's technically still 4-then-3, but they're back to back and i find this shitty job and the shitty people who work there to be really damn exhausting. 3 days in a row is more than enough for me, yo. what makes it more tiring is knowing that i don't get 7 days off in a row afterward to make up for it (they cleverly slapped a single day in the middle of what would otherwise have been 7 days off just to make sure of it), but while i'm working those 7 days, the other maintenance guy does. the bastard. tbh i'm kind of clinging to the tiny little hope that he'll take off one of my work days the following week since i took one of his a couple of weeks ago. on the one hand, an extra day of money is good. on the other hand, 8 days off is also good. BUT EITHER WAY i'm tired, my body is sore, it's hot and i have to wear long pants, i hate most of my managers and coworkers, and i have no idea what to bring for lunch because i don't want to cook. i don't have time to do much of anything on work days, i've been lonely because the SO has been out of town for a month, my feet hurt, and i really need to do laundry but i don't have enough dirty clothes aside from my work uniform so i've just been switching out the shirts and hoping that'll be good enough until the week is out. 4 days down, 3 left someone come do my job for me and i don't wanna hear no "my grandpappy worked 7 days a week every week, barefoot in the snow, just to feed his 38 kids", either. i'm tired all the time and this isn't helping, so shut up and let me whine. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
