Leap of Faith

Well, after months of going round and round with my work about my schedule and it just resulting in "We'll try our best" and nothing being done, I put my 2 week notice in. November 5 will be my last day at Super 1.

Chad and I have been talking about this for about a month or so, but this week was the final straw. I am scheduled for 2 1/2 days this week, that's only 18 hours. We can't live on my only working 18-21 hours a week. My boss asked me what would have to be done for it to make it worth my while to stay, and I told him I HAD to have at least 4 seven hour days. I don't see that as a problem because some other cashiers can and always seem to get 4-5 days a week, where as others of us only get 2-3 days a week, and we have just as much availability as the others.

It wouldn't be so much of a problem if we had someone to help us out, but when my parents live 14 hours away, his dad and step-mom both work, and his mom is 4 hours away, it makes it difficult on just Chad and I. Chad's schedule is pretty set, but he doesn't get off until after the daycare is closed.

I have put my application in at a few places for some desk/clerical work, but I haven't heard back from anyone yet. Hopefully something will become available soon.
