My awful boss Watch
On the off chance a restaurant I had contacted weeks before hand and forgot about messaged me asking for a trial shift. I was so excited about the chance to work as it was at a place I actually really liked. the trial shift was perfect I loved it and the wages were good as well as the hours and shift benefits in general.
after a week I began to realise how awful my boss was as I seem to be the only one she was picking on and shouting at. More things happened which made me feel on edge and sick from anxiety (something that hasn't flared up in a while) my panic attacks have began to return as well.
I met up with a uni friend the other day and it showed how much I haven't been myself and how much it had actually been effecting me. It was a shock to the system about how depressed this job had made me. I even cried to family about how it makes me feel. Yesterday I had a panic attack on shift from fear and anxiety from my manager ( I had to tell her about my panic attacks something I didn't really want to address with her out of all people)
Today I have rang in sick as I am too emotionally drained from what had happened yesterday. I told my boss something else ( I know lying is bad) but I don't think she would be happy with me taking a mental health day.
I told her I would be in again tomorrow but I feel sick already from anxiety i'm even scared to hand in my resignation letter. As I know she is going to be a ***** to me about ringing in sick today as I was prepared to go in to work tomorrow.
Am I crazy for feeling like this after 3 weeks. sorry I just needed to vent.
Advice would be helpful
My dudes, freaking quit! Seriously, if it is affecting your mental health then it isn't worth it! Just don't show up tomorrow OR EVER. There are many more opportunities in this world and this won't be your last job, you can easily search for another one. Please update me on what you do
I’ve been let go before but I’ve always been paid to go. Also, the person who did it was let go 6 months later. You have more power than you think. Just take care of yourself and don’t let one person affect your self esteem. If you need any extra advice then pm me (there are some issues such as if the restaurant is a chain and whether you are on probation to be considered - just trying to give you the just).
