I quit!

Yes, I quit my job. I had the last straw on Friday. I told my supervisor many times I can't work a split shift and come in on first shift. I didn't have a ride. I told him in a text message because right after we got done working, he took off to his office and I was too tired to chase after him. He said he coerced me into doing the shift. That's when I knew it was over.

Now, I really don't know what to do with myself. It's daytime and I'm wide awake. I'm usually sleeping so, I'm sitting here job hunting. I should take a week off and decompress from what all just happened. I have no quit in me. I am ready to move on to the next chapter in my book of work. That's what I'm calling it.

I'll keep you posted. Good thing the economy is doing so good right now.

Busy Sorry

Hello there!
I haven't forgotten about this blog I started. I just have been busy with work and life lately. Right now it's the busy season at my job. I don't know if I'm going to keep this job or not. My boss demands me to come in when I don't have a ride to work. I don't know how to get a ride because honestly, I can't afford a cab right now. He doesn't listen when I tell him that "I cannot do it!". Maybe he thinks I'll change my mind or something but I have over and over told him when he asks that I simply can't and then I list the reasons. I guess my reasons aren't good enough for him, I don't know. We are simply at an impasse and I feel this is forcing me to quit.

I wish I could look down the road a few years and see where this job I have now is going to lead. I wish I could see if changing jobs is truly the right decision. There is so much fear involved because at my job now, I have a comfort zone. I'm 3rd in seniority in my department. I know my job and responsibilities like the back of my hand.

What if I leave and find something better? What if I find first shift forklift driving? I'm an excellent driver even on a forklift. I can drive through the tightest of spots and I've only been driving it for 4 months.

I have to take a leap of faith. I'm going to leave. I can afford it. There are jobs out there that I'm qualified for. I don't HAVE to stay where I am. I'm really starting to hate 3rd shift anyway. Even right now, I'm sitting here wide awake at 3:30am. THAT'S NOT NORMAL!! Well, not for most people but it is for me.

Ok done venting. Thanks for reading this. Please keep coming back. I'll post more when things slow down.
