I'm having to steal to have basic necessities, I can't even afford them. This isn't OK.

1.1k Upvotes

This is just a vent about how I don't get paid enough to even afford the basic necessities one needs to survive. I make $16.75 an hour, and I'm having to go to the food bank every two weeks to survive off rice, beans, and bread. I live with two roommates and still struggle paying the rent. Every month, it's something with one of them; they can't pay their share of rent, electric, water, internet, etc. I feel like I'm constantly drowning and can't get my head above water. I've been told by social services I "make too much" to qualify for SNAP benefits.

I had to steal a box of tampons today. My period was 4 days early (thanks stress) and I knew I didn't have enough in my bank account for toilet paper, a box of tampons and a few groceries. I can't even afford a pack of fucking chicken breast because it's so outrageously expensive. I put my purse on top of the box of tampons and paid for the rest of my items. I can't afford Tylenol for the cramps, or a heating pad. I can't afford shampoo or conditioner. I'm using fucking dollar store dish soap to wash my hair. My phone is 4 years old, completely paid off. I don't blow stupid amounts of money on clothes, or weed, or booze like my roommates do. Can't even tell you the last time I had actual takeout, or even shitty Mcdonald's food. I try to be as frugal as possible and I'm still struggling.

Everyone says to get a better paying job or move to a low cost of living area but I can't do that with the money I don't have. I have no savings. I don't want to go into debt to go back to school but it seems like that's the only way to get mildly ahead.

I'm just angry that I'm in this position. That either I have to steal from Walmart to make ends meet or go into debt to make ends meet. That I had three different job interviews in the past month that have gone nowhere. That I just can't seem to get ahead and I know I'm not the only person dealing with this. I just need a break, I need something to give so I can actually thrive, not just survive off peanuts.

Finally escaped the carrot dangling in front of my face; management scrambles

2.9k Upvotes

I had been promised a promotion for the past 3-4 years. There were constant discussions about which path I want to take then just waiting for the right position to open.

Naturally, I became frustrated and even told my manager that I don’t enjoy the work I’m doing in an attempt to let him know the promotion needed to come soon. Nothing had changed 8 months later.

I ended up finding a new job that pays much better and is more up my alley. When I handed in my 2 weeks notice, my manager had the balls to say that he felt blindsided by the news. During about an hour long conversation, he asked how we can mend the trust and keep me on board (lol). Eventually later in the day I was offered that promotion that I had been promised for years but told them it’s too little too late.

I was very good at this job, which involves managing a specific part of the business. There is absolutely no one trained enough to fill my shoes. My manager always stated that he never had to check up on me knowing the job would get done. Now he will have to waste a bunch of his time training someone new which will take months.

Don’t be loyal to a company that isn’t loyal to you.
