Alrighty so let me explain this piece of paper. This is our time slips at Whataburger. Whataburger payroll ends at 3 pm Monday for the week. So our weeks start Monday at 3 pm. At 3 pm each day it starts a new "whataburger" day because we run end of day.
I was off Monday so my week technically started on Tuesday. At 8 pm to be specific. I just got home from work. As you can see its Wednesday at 8 pm. I just finished off a 24 hour shift.
It says daily hours are 5.33 but that is because our day begins at 3 pm. So since 3 pm I've worked 5.33 hours but total I've worked 24.75 in one shift.
So for those who say I work a bullshit fast food job or say I don't bust my ass off for Ally. Or for the bitch in particular that says all I did was sleep instead of spend time with my daughter, here's a small dose of reality.
I don't get the luxury of others caring for me because I don't want to work. No I've been a single mom for a long time before R came along. While we are separate I still have necessities that need to be cared for and sometimes that means pulling long hours such as a 24 hour shift.
This is the reality of being a parent, provider, friend, support system, and all around boss. It's tiring and some days it takes everything out of you but having your daughter tell you she loves you and is proud of you makes it worthwhile.
I chose more than depending on others, I chose a career and in the next few months I'll shift into full time housewife. I can't wait until I get days full of giggles instead of angry customers. Days where 24 hours is spent with family instead of at work.
If you get the luxury of spending all your time with your children and family treasure that because you could easily be the provider.
