Had to do a quick sketch because I was just too mad to do anything else reasonable…
Here is the story. My work has constantly given me promises and has also broken every single one. First one was I would get 'x' amount of hours when I was first hired. But, after training, I got 1/3 of those 'promised hours'.
Then, they offered me a new position, but would get 'x+5' hours. I said, heck! that is more than you said I'd get before. Downside was I would lose a 25 cents if it got it. Well, I took the new position since the hours they promised would more than enough to make up what I would lose per hour. Unfortunate, I was only scheduled 1/2 of those promised hours. But that was okay, since I was able to earn enough to pay off most of my bills. It wasn't the best, but it was adequate until I could find a new job.
They next promised me I would get more hours come summer since our business gets dramatically busier. Just a few days ago, I was told that we should expect more hours soon since, guess what, our business has picked up. Well it did, and when I went in to check my schedule today… I'm working 1/2 of what I was working before. Aka, back to where I started in the first position but with a 25 cent cut.
And I'm really mad because of it! I have a ton of bills to pay soon, and some pretty large investments in two conventions. I have to cancel my plans for the others I wanted to go to, but those other two are already booked and half paid for. Now I'm worried I won't have the money to pay the rest off without going into my savings.
But good news about this entire s***storm of a job, I have more time to focus on art. And I am also planning on starting commissions soon. I just need to make the chart of what I can do and the prices. I'll make a post for when that is done.
Overall though, this entire situation sucks…
P.S. Link below is the pic I drew for stress relief. It calmed me down quite a bit.
