the thing with shit jobs is you have to put your foot down. its tough cause youre afraid of getting fired, but theyre usually bluffing. ive worked for a grocery store for over 4 years. i used to bust my ass: no call ins, worked holidays, came in early, stayed late...and thats what they came to expect, they WILL take advantage of you. after wondering how my incompetant coworkers kept their jobs, i realized i was wasting my energy. i have since told them i make my own schedule, i do enough work so im one of the better employees but thats it.
ice, i know you cant go from ole dependable to slacker without drawing attention, but start picking your battles man. if youre sick you have the final say pull out the old projectile diarrhea trick and he'll beg you to stay home.
