Unhappy I hate my job.

I work at McDonalds. Never have they EVER given me the hours I've requested, and now all of a sudden because a key employee went on vacation, they've been working me monday-friday (i have other duties on the weekend). And honestly? I'm just tired. The customers, the owner of the place, the unfair management under one manager.

Funny thing? They all know that I loathe working there. It's become more a laugh for them then most things. I make my hatred of that place blatantly known. I love my co-workers, but I hate food service with the intensity of 1,000 suns. I get away with a lot there too, because I am a good employee (most the time), like dying my bangs purple - people have gotten yelled at for less than that - wearing obnoxious rocker jewelry - and even giving the owner a hard time. Let's not get started on my sailor's mouth when I'm there. I can say something completely inappropriate, and they erupt in laughter. I'm glad at least I can entertain someone with my lack of enthusiasm for the job I work.

Mom's leaving on Sunday to visit my grandmother in Florida. I have to hold down the fort because our old vacay horse-sitters sold their barn, and I really didn't trust anyone else with them.

They already have the schedules out for next week, but I am seriously considering finding replacements for at least two days so I can have a REAL day off! Feed the horses, turn them out, and sit on my butt until it's time to bring them in. I need some time for me, and by God I will have it! No clients, no customers, no parents on my back, no schedule and time management.. I just need to chill the heck out, because I am so close to an emotional break down that it's not even funny.

I'm cramped up inside, when I'm usually outside, riding, and getting all the therapy I need. Boy are they going to be ticked this summer when I've got horses to fit for show, and I'll be able to only work mornings and weekdays. -sigh- I'm just going sofa kinging crazy.

The only thing I can say is quit. I worked at a place during the summer where my "boss" (really the person under the boss) made my whole summer miserable. I usually never say I hate someone, but I hated her. Everyday I would dread going to work and then when I got there all I wanted to do was go home. The money was by no means worth it.

Try getting a job at your barn or with horses. I work at a boarding/rescue stable and I love my work. I actually look forward to getting up at six. My boss's are very cool, they give me freedom, I get to pick my own hours, I get to work with horses all day, and I just down right love it~

Try looking for another job.

I don't have any suggestions, but I do feel your pain. I know the economy sucks but have you tried looking for another job?

Being a responsible adult sucks.....

Have you looked for a different job? Or is it too much fun to make these people miserable?

I worked food service as a manager for years. If I were your boss, you'd have been out of a job a long time ago.

Your attitude stinks, you don't follow the rules, and you have no respect for authority.

Even if you're just being a typical, snotty, rebellious teen, I have no sympathy for you. If you're an adult with this nasty attitude, good luck finding any work in the future.

I'm an accountant by trade, but I had to work food service for a number of years in order to make ends meet. I wouldn't go back to it, but I sure as heck wouldn't bad mouth people who kept me on the payroll.

All of us who have horses at home and work full time do the same thing you do every day of the year, but without the complaining, complaining, and crappy attitude.

Horses are a luxury, not a necessity. If you want to rest on your days off, either get rid of them or board them.

You can say what you want speed racer, but that place will make anyone want to shoot themselves with their ridiculous policies. At 7.25 an hour, this place treats everyone like first graders. Never did I say that I was doing it for the horses, did I? No, I didn't - so I don't know how you made that assumption. Either way, I would need money - with or without the equines, so you ma'am, need to re-read the post. I have other cash gigs on the weekend, not just regular, everyday chores, FYI.

I have tried looking for a job, but alas the only 'real' city is 45 minutes away, but I am going to go job hunting there soon. We have a Walmart, I had an interview there and the interviewer never showed up. It's super hard finding work around here, and each town is 16 miles or more away from me. That's the price you pay for living in the middle of nowhere.

WhiteFoot - I don't have a barn I board at. My horses are kept at home, unless they're in training.

Speed Racer is just brutally honest. Honesty sucks sometimes. I like the way she is honest, sometimes people just need to have thicker skin D; I literally live in-the-middle-of-no-where, seriously. On top of living near no civilization I still live a mile or two back from the "main" road.

I like living in the middle of no where though. I'm definitely not one of those that likes to live in neighborhoods. Confined spaces and areas make me crazy. I enjoy looking out and seeing nothing but trees and the occasional deer. We have neighbors, but because of the trees and the land we have, we never see them unless they're driving down the road - and we live on a dead end road. I love how quiet it is.

I used to work at Maccas - I liked it much, much more than my current job. At maccas at least you are moving around, doing things, and they have enough staff that it's easy to cover a shift you can't work. Try working in an office, stuck behind a computer all day, and not getting along with anyone you work with.

I'm 100% with speedracer.

if I could afford to keep ym horses, my car, and my livelihood on that wage I would be back there in an instant. Don't generalise.
