You meet with your siblings, (or other family members) and everything goes great until you find out that one of them has scheduled an interview or something without your express or prior consent, at a workplace which is completely out of your way. What the hell?
They tell you all about the work, how it’s done and what you’ll be doing there, however they already know (after you told them numerous times!) that you have a part/full time job.
They get angry and seemingly aggressive when explaining you already have a job (or two), and claim ‘well, you cannot afford anything, your rent/mortgage is behind, your bills are way over your head, you can’t budget and you are about to go bankrupt’, when their situation does not match yours at all.
Funny thing is, I know how to budget, save up. Bills aren’t way over my head. They’re paid each month, on time. Rent is always paid (certainly isn’t $1500/month!), Basic living expenses are managed accordingly, entertainment is allocated based on available funds.
I don’t drive a vehicle, I bike. Therefore don’t need to pay $500 + $800 for a car loan/lease payment per month, or $150-$200 for a tank of gas every few days, (your expenses, bills, etc. may be different). They just don’t get the fact that nobody’s situation is the exact same as theirs. They don’t respect anyone’s wishes.
If you encounter the same methods they used on me, just go to the job interview (as they purposely scheduled it, unless your work schedules you to work that day, don’t bother going to that interview), explain to the hiring manager, boss or management that you already work full time elsewhere and somebody was hounding you to apply. Thank them, walk out. Tell them you’ll just wait until the phone call comes, and let it go as that.
It’s the exact method i’ll be using, and I won’t by applying. I certainly do not wish to quit my job, only to no even last a week in an extremely fast-paced environment which has numerous slip hazards. I’m just not cut out for it. I tried it, got let go. Nearly injured myself skating across a greasy floor despite having the proper footware.
Unless I am in dire need for work, am in debt over my head and have a fucking horribly out of control budget, sorry, I will not apply for more work. I need time for myself to relax, exercise and get away from the chaos faced every day.
Thanks for reading.
