Confession: I work minimum wage jobs because...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I find them interesting. I've never done it because I needed money. It actually kind of sucks, because I'll never know what most people are going through. Im a trust fund baby and so is my husband. I went to college because I had nothing better to do. I will get these jobs and work until
I'm bored then move on. Being a SAHM is okay but there just has to be more to life than being the royal buttwiper.

Alrighty.

I can think of much more interesting shit to do with my time, if I had no money worries.

I guess consider yourself lucky that you do it for fun, and not truly trying to support yourself and kids.

I can understand that. I'm a SAHM. My kids are in school. I'm burned out on volunteering at school so I work retail. I keep the job until they can't give me the days off I need and then I move on or not. I'm not working now because I refuse to work the week of thanksgiving

If I could write worth a damn I'd have plenty to expose.

Actually you're wrong. I've thought of writing a book like Barbara Eihrenreich(sp), who does exactly what I'm doing for the purpose of exposing corrupt practices and unlivable wages. Im just not political enough. It feels like im working on a tv show or something.



Quoting mamakat070812:

Lol. Nobody works minimum wage jobs because they find them interesting. Im smelling some rotten bologna.

Then she's not doing it just because she finds them interesting.

She's doing it to expose corruption and poor treatment.

The flexibility is really nice. And i will work for people last minute to help them out, so it's not all selfish.

I don't see what the big deal is. I've been living off my band funded student allowance, and I am so scared of working once I'm done my degree...but I'm going into teaching, so at least I'm working towards what I'm aspiring to do with my life. 

I think people just want to bitch about anything on here. I think you're pretty cool to work jobs because they interest you. Better than working a job because you HAVE TO.

I wish money was any kind of incentive for me. Are you a nurse?

I don't think a lot of people understand where I'm coming from in terms of it being interesting. If they sit back and watch the people around them it's something to see. So many complex interactions every day.

Do you ever get used to wiping strangers? I was a hospital volunteer and I used to shudder at the thought of the wrinkly balls and old vaginas the nurses would mention, and the lack of self care. Just ew.
