The New Job

Recommended Posts

Oh, geez.

 

That's really how I can most appropriately begin describing this new job. 'Oh. Geez'.

 

I expected hard work, I like hard work. I'm fine with that part. I expected rude customers. That's all right too, I've worked in food business before. The two major complaints I have with waitressing in a small town is that I'm working 40 hours a week and I'm bringing home 100 dollars... And the second being I work with too many younger women that think they're the high queen waitress.

 

One tells me I look awful any time my hair starts to frizz. One refuses to even acknowledge me when I speak to her. Another is only nice to me when her 'frizz complaint' friend isn't around... Geez. I feel so abused by the end of the day and I'm hardly able to pay for gas money to even get to the job.

 

The managers are nice. I love the managers. There's one in particular that dotes on me whenever we cross paths, he's so sweet.

 

Ugh. But I mean... I've worked a job before where it was ALL men my age, the only problem there was that I kept getting propositioned every time I went to a quiet area of the restaurant. I think I prefer that to, 'D*** girl! You look like crap!"

 

 

Yeah.

 

I needed to rant. Sigh. In a couple hours I have to go back to the grind stone.

That sucks! Sorry you have to put up with that. I hate that women are so mean to each other.

 

I hope that it gets better. And that the tips are good! Have to have money, not only for gas but for more makeup! :-)

That cannot be fun! Sorry you have to deal with that. But that's how some women are...maybe they will warm up and see what a sweetheart you are and then feel like jerks for being rude!

Hi Era,

 

Sorry to hear the job's turned out to be so unpleasant. You may have to start planning to find another so that you may get yourself out of the awful situation. Colleagues can be such a pain sometimes.

Hang in there, as well as you know of the good amount of work you put into the place, you should give yourself a pat on the back. Never mind people like that, they might have problems that they haven't dealt with, it's not your problem, atleast you tried being nice to them...

I am sorry your job hasn't turned out so great. Hopefully, you can find something else pretty soon or these women will change their horrid attitudes. People can be so rude and hateful sometimes! Posted Image

so sorry about your situation. don't let them get you down, though! i like to think that at the end of the day i can "brush my shoulders off" and be myself again. start exhaling at the door before you leave and leave that crap they give you right there with them. be honest, do you really want these people in your head? no way!

Doh, sorry this happened to you. But usually the first few weeks, people are like a pack of wolves. Hopefully they will accept you soon, other wise it will be an unhealthy work environment.

 

I really do hope it gets better for you! Hang in there. Posted Image

sorry to butt in, but i don't know about her state, but i only got paid $20/shift, no matter how many hours i've worked. servers make way less than min. wage because of trips.

    • Hi there, just looking for advice. I recently bought 2 Huda New Nudes palettes (gifts, not for me unfortunately) They've arrived and I have my suspicions that they are fake, I just wanted to double check before getting a refund! (They were £39 each, so while it's a bargain for legit palettes, it's daylight robbery for fakes!)

    • Koreans are acknowledged globally for their flawless and glowing skin texture. And, they have been generous enough to share their 10-step skincare regime with the world. Here are a few of my favorite products that I can absolutely can't do without: Some By Mi H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream My absolute favourite is the moisturizing cream by ‘Some by Mi.’ It moisturizes your skin deeply with 7- hyaluronic acid molecules and forms a barrier to keep the moisture locked in for longer. Cleanse your face and gently apply the  H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream for soft, smooth, and supple skin. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner Another big name in the Korean skincare industry is of COSRX. COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is an exfoliating fluid that prevents blackheads and whiteheads while effectively eliminating the dead and flaky skin cells. Infused with natural vitamins, it double cleanses your face from deep within. The AHA BHA PHA toner is a blessing for all those who have acne-prone skin. Also check: Cosrx Favorite Set Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum The next Korean skincare product on the list is the miracle serum by Some by Mi. This low pH toner is formulated with several vitamins that heal acne, lighten skin tone, pigmentation, and dark spots. You will start witnessing the change in your skin from the first week itself. Don’t forget to shake Some By Mi Aha Bha Pha 30 Days Miracle Serum well before use as it is a water-oil based toner. Apply a generous amount of it after taking showers. Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch If in this world overnight magic would possibly exist, it would only exist through Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch. Put this patch overnight on your pimple and it would help in reducing the redness and cleaning away the impurities incurred from acne. Its primary asset is that it makes sure that no after-pimple mark remains on your skin. You can read more it through our first-hand review of this product here: Cosrx Pimple Master Patch: Reviews & How to Use It? Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel This Korean skincare product is enriched with aloe and Propolis that help the skin in diverse ways. It soothes texture, fades the scars and brightens the skin Additionally, with aloe being its key ingredient, it helps in reducing the redness of the skin in totality. Aloe is, in fact, a key component even in K Beauty and Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel has plenty of it. You can read more about Aloe Benefits in our blog.
