I just feel worthless...

I've blown 3 jobs in the last 2 years, since I've been with SO. Before that, I blew countless jobs. But in the last 2 years I've been a dishwasher, got fired after 2 days because I apparently wasn't doing what I should have been doing.

I've been a worker at Papa Murphy's. I got fired because I told them I needed at least 20 hours a week and they said they couldn't give me that much.

And I've been a waitress at a local restaurant called The Remedy and I got fired when I was pregnant because I refused to do upstairs tables.

What the fuck is wrong with me? For real. And we live in a small town, so the places I've worked in the past couple years are pretty much the only places I could have worked. I can't work at a gas station or McDonalds because I have a retail theft charge on my record and I can't work at Walgreens or a bank because I don't have my diploma.

Stop telling your bosses what you will/won't do, and just do what you are supposed to do.

Be a better employee : )  Maybe housekeeping?  A different restaurant?  Stocking or working the floor at a store instead of working the register?  Secretarial work?  Cafeteria at a home, rehab, school?  Maybe work for the city?  Good luck.

Sometimes you got to suck it up and do what you got to do. You may not like some things your boss tells you to do, but that's life.

I blew a housekeeping job when I was 16 :(

I am definitely applying at different restaurants but a lot of them aren't hiring. Most places around here don't hire until around summertime.

I know it's stupid but it was my first time being pregnant. I was terrified of falling down the stairs.

You need good credit for most banks as well, and duh a bank won't hire you because of a record. what is wrong with you? Really... Stop demanding things from your employers and acting entitled. Do your job.
