shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
This literally does not happen
You literally have no concept of the grown-up world.
I need to add my two-cents in on this. I’ve worked in retail for three years now and I cannot even begin to tell you how much disrespect I’ve gotten from business men and woman because I ‘don’t have a real job.’ My dad was one of those men. Vice President of a large company, and hated people in the service industry. He hates door greeters, or people who come up and bother him while he’s shopping. But then when someone doesn’t come to help him, or is going too slow, everyone in the store knows it. I can’t even count anymore how many workers he has made cry. He was like this until I started working in retail. He saw how hard I worked, the pain it caused me to be on my feet for hours at a time everyday, and my emotional well being being compromised from the jerks who treated me the exact way he treated people in my same status. I’m lucky to have changed at least one person’s view on service workers, but unfortunately, to most people in a 9-5 weekday job.. it’s because of them we have a job and without them… we wouldn’t even be here. I’ve had someone say that. I’ve also had a man threaten me… threaten my life, because I had just started and had to ask my manager a question on how to give his discount to him. If you think of people in this field of work like that… I think it’s time to rethink your attitude. Those jeans you’re wearing, that shirt, that hair cut… none of that would be on your persons if it wasn’t for people like us.
If you say you love someone, then there shouldn’t be a list of things so large you want to change about them that you break up with them when you can’t change them. That means you don’t really love them. If you truly love someone, you love them for how they are, sure there are a few things here and there that you’d like to change or something, but NOT so much stuff that you end up breaking up with them. That’s not love. And I guess I was just too blind to see that sooner.
Posted this over a year ago. And for some reason, I still took that sonofabitch back. Not anymore.
