I took on a sub job at the school where I'll be teaching this fall. The school is an hour's drive for me, so I'm doing it to gain experience in my new school, not for the money. Anyway, I'm feeling awful because I think I'm making myself look bad. I still work nights as a waitress. my boss doesn't seem to "get it." I've told him many times that I can't come in till 4:00 but he still schedules me at 3:00 some days. Since I NEED my waitressing job (subbing pays once a month - if I don't waitress there'll be no gas money), I have had to decline two jobs because my boss had me scheduled for 3:00. Then last week my boyfriend and I were sharing our car because his was in the shop. My BF needed the car for a work meeting, so he took it that day and I had to decline another job. Then today, while I'm outside feeding my dog, the automated subbing line called. They usually call by 6:30, so by 9:00 I thought I was in the clear and left my phone inside. So, there's another job I couldn't take. I'm feeling terrible. From now on I will risk my waitressing job if I have to. I will carry my phone with me everywhere. I will not turn another job again...unless they never call again. Am I being paranoid?? I'm sure it's obvious, but boy, this has me worried.
