I was going to be a bartender. But I got Plantar Faciitis and really can't stand for long periods.
A week ago I got a phone call from the Exxon station, a place that I had applied to a few months ago. The woman, Blanca, asked if I was still interested. It's the graveyard shift, so I will be making $8.00 an hour to start. She said that in two weeks, I will take another class and get a $.25 raise. She is also going to work it out that I get another big raise after three months. I also have the option of working weekends. I will be training next week for two full days.
She told me I could nap and I should bring stuff to keep me occupied, as it will be a very easy job. I will be sitting in this very small building all night, no pc. I will be working 16 hours straight three days/nights a week. I usually only get four hours of sleep every night, so I may as well make money during these hours. It is pretty safe, I will be locked in and the manager told me that they have only been robbed during the day (strange, huh?).
My other option is to leave the office that I've been working in for 13 years to go for a higher paying job in the district. If the gas station attendant job doesn't work out, that will be my next step. I really hate to do it, but I can't go any further in my department and I want mo money!
This means I won't be able to come here as often, but I want you all to know that I appreciate every one of you and am glad for every minute I can come here.
Edited to add: Two men interviewed me last Friday for this job. They looked at my boobs and one said, "She will be better than Barbara." hahahahahha
