They expect me to do 3 people's jobs and I'm barely making 22K a year. I didn't go to school to make that little of money. I've been promised a raise and promotion for over a year now. I have worked my ass off trying to get this promotion. I would come in early, work through lunch, and stay late. For over a year I have been doing the work of the higher position a well as my current position but I'm still only making 22K.
Now I'm just sick of it. I barely make enough to cover daycare for my kids. I want to quit and go back to school but I need insurance because I am pregnant. If I wasn't working we would do fine without unemployment but I need insurance through this pregnancy so I need them to fire me.
I called out sick on Weds and Thurs. My son was actually sick on Weds. Thursday I woke up with a bad headache.
It was so hard to drag myself out of bed this morning. I did not want to come in. But I managed to get myself and my boys ready. I was walking out the door 5 mins before I was supposed to be at work. My DH offered to take the kids to school so I wouldn't be late but I declined.
I even took my time at daycare. I talked to the teachers about my new hair cut and the new classroom decorations.
I walked into work 15 minutes late. My boss' number one pet peeve is tardiness. And my stinking boss wasn't even there! He had a meeting outside the office this morning.
Now it seems all of my coworkers are giving me the cold shoulder.
I don't want to piss off my coworkers because I see them outside of work.
But I want to make my boss fire me..
Is there a way to do both?
