Work Woes Open Thread

Come commiserate with me! Whinge or whine, rant and rave! I’ll lend an ear and offer to burn with fire and bury the bodies for you.

I’m feeling sorry for myself because I have to work today and Monday, so no such thing as a three day weekend for me. All the while every customer wishes me a great weekend and I just have to smile and say “you too!” While I wonder what special planet they live on where every person gets to take the long weekend AND stores and restaurants stay open.

I’ve also been at this new gig for a month and am just now realizing how fucked up it is that they require me to work weekend shifts (9 hours each) with no lunch break. We’re “allowed” to eat at our desk instead. I wonder what would happen if I took a lunch break anyway.
