I would talk it over with your boss and give it more than 2 days to adjust.
That other job may sound good on paper but how do you know it is.
There are thousands of unemployed teenagers out there.
Getting a job is not that easy these days.
About the distance and the pay you were probably aware of that before you took the job.
I do not mean to be harsh by saying that.
You made a decision to accept the job now you are disappointed. That's acceptable.
How you deal with the disapointment though is very important.
Good luck. Shalom
Yes I knew about the distance and pay of the job before I took the job, but the only reason I took it was because I was afraid I wouldn't find anything else and I felt pressured by my uncle. It looks like I'm just going to stick with it and see what Fall brings me when I have to do another job search. Thanks for your advice.
