Lacey, you should be able to collect unemployment due to your losing your job of no fault of your own. Please look into that if they have indeed let you go.

I got a serving job that I start Wednesday. It seems decent enough. At least I have income and it doesn't seem like it will go out of business lol. I'm actually kind of excited because I really like my apartment, and I want to start getting it together and making it look how I want it to look.

havent heard a peep from my now former job...

I'm so tired. Mentally, physically, emotionally I don't care about this job. I really don't. Truthfully- and I'm aware this is the wrong answer- if it wasn't for the guy, I would quit the job- effective tonight, and just go back to my home state and forget all of this. Seriously.

Lacey, I would just keep the job and look for other employment too. As I said, you should be able to draw unemployment since you lost your prior job of no fault of your own.

If you need a break, take a break.

Sending you a big hug.

So far no schedule from my "job." No one is answering my texts. I feel set up.

i simply cannot but a car while I am home without an answer. I can't take the chance. I'm going to be so pissed if I don't have a car STILL. And even more pissed if I don't have a job.

In my heart I just don't trust them. If I didn't have a record and I had other options, I wouldn't even give these people the time of day.

So I'm here. My mom picked a fight with me. I'm 100% not getting a car now. There was some scary potential rapist freak hanging out on the train platform the last time I left work late at night and I'm so sick knowing I have to go back and wait there in the dark, indefinitely.

my "job" is playing all kinds of games and I can't rely on them at all. I'm so close to telling them to go **** in their hat and just waiting tables until something else comes through. It's like breaking up with a person and getting back together with them. Then like five minutes into the new relationship you realized why you broke up with the person in the first place.

if I had any other options, I wouldn't even be entertaining this ********.

Ok it has to end because I'm about to make th decision for them. Now I'm relapsing into my eating disorder and this is going to stop TODAY.

It shouldn't be this hard. And, like I said, if it is, I will make the decision for them. I cannot live in limbo indefinitely. I can't take this anymore. They need to just tell me and be done with it. I'm fully prepared to just serve food until something else comes up. I can't live like this.

Lacey, why don't you get yourself together and go pay them a visit today and try to figure out what the issue is. Sometimes it's just an administrative mess that causes delays.

You are right however, nothing is worth your health. Take care of YOU.

There is no administrative mess because there is no administration.

i have to do whatever they want or worry about getting attacked on a train platform because I can't afford a car.
