Yeah, this is a rant, and craigslist didn't feel appropriate.
My work hired me at the end of July. It was more of just something to do so I wouldn't get too sick of working from home all the time. They then informed me they hired me to basically be in charge when the manager went into labor and her vacation time after. I then informed them that maybe they should hire someone else since I didn't really need the job (I have a pretty steady web design business) and would be leaving immediately after to go to my better job at the ski shop.
Anyway, they asked me to stay and said they would pay me more. So I figured ok, it would look good on my resume in the future.
Well, both of my managers went on vacation since the lady went into labor (my 2 mangers are engaged and just had their baby). They were supposed to hire someone before they left. They did not. They were supposed to take care of everyones health insurance before they left. They didn't. So I got left with doing tons of paperwork for everyones insurance and was short a person leaving me working over 48 hours a week + full time business classes + my web design business. I had only agreed to 3 days a work. I was doing 6.
What makes it worse is they just hired someone. I was there during the wage discussion. Turns out the fucking lied to me about my wage and said I was getting $1.50 an hour more than the regular staff. LIES! I was getting the exact same wage as everyone else and doing way more work.
Then... 3 weeks ago I requested today, friday, and saturday off. I always have friday's and saturdays off so it should have been no big deal.
I was planning on staying up till around 2 am studying, getting some loving from my current guy, then waking up at 11 or so, driving 5 hours to LA and taking my midterm at school tonight.
Last night someone calls in sick and they inform me that I have no choice in the matter and need to work this morning at 7am since im the "manager"
I was absolutely infuriated, canceled on my guy (I now haven't seen him for a week and a half and wont see him for another 5 days) didn't get in the studying time I wanted because I had to be in bed by 11 so that I could be functioning today. I didn't sleep at all because I took a nap after work yesterday and was expecting to stay up late.
Then I woke up went outside to put my stuff in my car. My dog sees another dog and chases after it. Sadly this was a homeless dog and my dog chased it for about 5 blocks with me running after it in a tshirt in awesome 20 degree weather.
I did get to study this morning though,but now I'm going to be exhausted while driving 5 hours and will probably be even more tired when I take my midterm which will totally affect my performance.
So yeah, I'm quitting when I get back. Does that seem extreme?
Cliff notes: Found out my job has been lying to me about me making more than everyone else and been giving me way more work and responsibility. Because of it it totally wrecked my night and my mood and now I'm going to do worse on my midterm today because of it.
Just needed to get that out of my system.
