and she said she wants Saturdays off but her manager won’t let her. Her only hours in that department are Saturday and Sunday; when she signed up for that department, she agreed to work THOSE hours specifically. She works 3-4 hour shifts Monday and Wednesday in my department. Her commute to school is twenty minutes and she has Tuesdays completely off classes. She has a horse she feeds and trains for competitions daily
And I guess I’m just pissed off that she can afford to have time off, even though she has to house and tend to a horse which is thousands a month, so she feels like it’s her right to have time off. Now that my bill has totaled up at school, I can’t afford to take any time off; if I take more than one shift off work a MONTH, I won’t be able to afford driving or food. Monday to Friday, I drive about an hour and twenty minutes down in traffic at 6am and I drive back in about an hour at 11am or 3pm. I’m estimately roughly $100 a week just on gas. I’m up from 5 to 10 almost every single day, and I’m not okay with it, but where can I get off the ride?
She talks about being tired and being stressed out and ‘deserving’ time off. Fucking christ girl we all deserve time off. In a perfect world, no one would work. Work is the most horrifying experience of a person’s life; literally, working a job is traumatic and defies our most basic needs as animals. But you are a rich little girl who literally works to afford her Starbucks every single day. Your parents pay for school, for your car, for your horse. Look at things from the perspective of someone who has to pay for everything on their own with no help. Even I have it better than most people. I at least have a supportive mother and work environment.
I know I’m just venting really badly, but still, college isn’t meant to be easy. If everyone could just focus on higher education and not on bills, more people would appreciate and enjoy college. But alas, some of us need to get by, and we have to grind through every single day and just hope for the best.
