I think I like the second one.
I hope you're okay Nyx
Today was a day of mixed-ness. So Rosie seemed to know we were going, waiting at the gate. Then I took her out into the next paddock with the crazy grey and Rosie was pretty freaked. She walked straight onto the float though, brilliant, but then was so nervous that the grey mare was coming up behind her she kept twisting around trying to see behind her, and almost got jammed in the float. Anyway, got going and she was great when we got there, so much calmer and happier, just rolling in the dirt and lazing in the sun. I am so glad we moved!
Then my new job called and asked me to work Thursday and Friday which I was super happy about, actually a job I want in a field somewhat relevant.
Then the badness, I went to pick up my work pay and saw in the roster that they had rostered me on for Thursday and Saturday, for 8+ hour shifts, and then no shifts at all next weekend. Now just recently I specifically asked my manager not to put me on for such long shifts. 8 hours standing up with no breaks and no sitting down and an awful manager yelling at your for things that are literally his mistake is completely unbearable. It's also illegal (as far as breaks are concerned). I've just been here a few weeks but in the past when I have told her I am busy weekdays she said not to write it down because I am just a relief, my work is on weekends. So now she's rostered me on two days before a weekday with two days notice (roster comes out today). Which obviously I can't do.
Anyway I thought about it and spoke to my mother and we agreed this job isn't right for me, and i'm not desperate for the money, so I sent a message (not the best form of communication but the only way this place seems to do it) saying that 8 hour shifts with no breaks are no good for me and that I had prior obligations on Thursday, she says that she needs me to work Thursday, and I say no and that I don't want to work there anymore.
I felt bad not giving her more notice but I would have worked the weekend if she asked, and if she would have actually given me notice (more than two days) then I wouldn't have taken this shift for my other job. If she'd at least offered me a break, just half an hour at a quiet time, I'd have tried to do something for her.
But I can't work 8 hours standing up. Maybe I'm just weak. But I think people should have breaks, and I've had two or three shifts, I'm practically new, they just threw me in, didn't show me anything, then yelled a lot at everyone (not just me) and I don't know. Just awful.
So now she sends me a text about how this this has like disrupted her business and how all hospitality people have to work 8+ hour shifts.
I get that, and I've worked in places with 8 hour days and that was fine but it was at this place completely awful.
But now I feel rotten.
