Awesome Or Not?

Want to know what's really awesome?

Needing a total of 8 tiles to complete two bathroom renovations, only having 2 and a 1/2 and so when you go to buy more, you find out that your tile has been discontinued.

Having your hours cut at work so that you have to work at the restaurant 2-3 times a week now. I should say the restaurant is really more of a bar that also serves food. People really do go there to get drunk. That's why I work in the morning. Drunk tourists - awesome, drunk locals - not so much.

Working 2 shifts a week there equals only one day off during the week or doing doubles twice a week. This is why I no longer have a life.

The new hours at the store now mean I go in at 5:30 leaving me with about 10 minutes to spend with John. These 10 minutes are usually spent with me standing over the counter cramming dinner into my mouth.

Did I say I work at a bar? Yeah. A bar. Did I also mention that there is a huge AA conference in town this weekend? Yep. And I work at a bar....Awesome.

  1. Well awesome! Hope things really do get awesome for you in the near future. I think you're awesome just in general!

  2. I can understand the frustration with the tile thing, but as for your job, you kind of put yourself in this position. You had a real job that you decided wasn't the best for you and made the choice to take up other employment options. Just a few weeks ago, if I remember correctly, you were talking about how much you loved your new life with your alternative work situations. Don't get me wrong-- everyone gets down and has bad days, but you really have no one to blame but yourself.

  3. Wow, Anonymous, that's harsh. Faith I think what you did about your job was "ballsy" (as that one interviewer put it). How many people do you know would have the guts to leave a "real job" in this work environment, because it made them severly unhappy & was not good for their well-being overall? Not many I am sure. It sucks about your work hours right now, but keep one thing in mind...this unhappiness is only temporary. If you hadn't left your old job, would your unhappiness be temporary? I think not. Keep on trucking, and keep looking for a job that truly makes you happy (if that really exists ;) We all have complaints about our jobs (no matter how much we like them overall) at some point or another. So Faith, go ahead and vent all you want.

    Anyway, where did you get the tile? Home Depot or another chain maybe? Do you have the product number? I could try to find it up here around my parts...

  4. I love Misty's comment, so I'm not sure I could say it better.

    You made a choice for your future, for yourself, not for the good of others. It may hurt right now, and I'm fully aware that it does and it sucks and you have every right to feel that way, but just like Misty said it's temporary.

    You made a great decision! It will pay off.

  5. Ugh, I had that awesome tile situation happen to me too. Luckily, I was able to find enough after driving to 3 different stores in one weekend. Is it a chain store that might have other locations? Or is there a manufacturer you can contact?

    Thanks so much for your vibes and thoughts this week. Much appreciated :)

  6. Gee, it's so surprising that a troll would hide behind an "anonymous" comment, isn't it?
    You have guts my friend and every right to whinge a little. Anyone with sense can see that you are still moving onward under your own steam, bravely facing the challenges.

  7. Thanks everyone! I really was having a bad day when I wrote the post. I'm not regretting the situation I put myself into one bit. Does my newest schedule suck sometimes yes, but I'll deal with it. I know that with my current company my position is going to change and my hours are going to change and it's really not a big deal. I'll manage it. I just needed a little moment to vent as we all do at times.

  8. Faith hang in there. There is a reason you chose to make the changes you did and no one including Anonymous people can judge. I am sure their life is no better they just don't have the guts to put it all out there like you do.

    Also I work in downtown SA near the Alamo and this weekend was crazy and the Anonymous people in town as a collective whole that myself and co-worker came across where not happy people. I watched them yell at people in Subway, yell at cars that had a right to go on Crockett and Alamo, and get pissed at visitor information people for telling them that they are not near there hotels. It was a large group of chaos. I work in the hotel industry so I can only imagine that of working retail and bar industry that I had come from.
