    Walked in Dollar Tree and I could physically feel my soul leaving my body:damn: Couple employees was arguing and ole girl didn't give a damn about getting in trouble, like she was legit tired. And at the end of the day they go home smelling like grease or old people musk:wow: It be some nice looking ladies of some of those fast food joints too, probably waiting on a man to pick them up.

    I know everybody circumstances ain't the same, but folks gotta do something. Sell drugs, play basketball, anything to leave that spot. I used to work at Walmart and boy I tell you the struggle was real, ya boy was hanging on by a thread.:wow: Y'all know how many times I clocked in 1 hour late or took 2 hour lunches. I used to carry the walkie with me so when i was chillin outside I could be on the listen out:mjgrin: This one old lady was sitting at the table sighed and randomly said "I'm gonna die here":mjlol:

    For real though I be nice to all of them because I know the struggle.

    I moved up later in life, actually had to go back but I always tell people

    The best job to get when you don’t have an education is serving tables

    Easy to move up

    And at a good restaurant you can bank

    I’ve made close to 75k a year doing it

    50 on the low end

    When I got laid off from my job as a manager

    I didn’t think twice about doing anything else but that

    Good now though

    Still pondering school

    I know that feeling and it's sad.

    Last year i was at chick fil a drive through. And doing busy times they have the employees outside in the heat taking orders.

    Pulled up and it was a guy i remembered from high school. He said hey man you look familiar, where you from???

    I had to pretend like i didn't know him too awkward

    Breh, I remember I had a haircut appointment one day that I scheduled for my "lunch time"...knowing good and well I'd be out a for a minute :myman: and I had to drive to the atm cuz I was short $20.

    I pull up to the atm but had to wait, a lady in a McDonald's uniform got there first, but she had no car. And I know the McDonald's she work at was down the street a couple blocks.

    Anyway, she forgot to sign out, so I could see her bank info before it timed out...the poor girl only had $3.20 on a damn Tuesday eeaaarly in the month :mjcry:

    Everytime I think about how tough I have it, I remember that atm amount. shyt is real out here brehs.

    Hurts my heart, but a good way to humble yourself and be grateful, realizing the different paths lives can take.

    I’m older now

    but I progress throughout life

    I was young and I worked at a grocery store, then worked at Dodger Stadium, then went to college and got a internship then ended up as a longshoreman making good money and after working too much and dealing with supervisors I bounced to doing insurance as a claims adjuster

    but I never shyt on anyone doing a job, cause that can be me again in that position

    but I do hate the few who shouldn’t even be doing retail or fast food service cause of they shytty attitude and laziness

    I can't imagine man. The thing about it is often the lower paying jobs are worse and more stressful than the high paying ones. shyt is backwards. Plus the price of everything is going up yet many people are getting no raises at all or just a few cents an hour. Sounds like a nightmare

    I don’t feel sorry for them really. I just understand their position and be as courteous as possible.

    I remember working at a gas station for six months and it was still the worst job I’ve ever had. I dreaded going in there every day.
    There was a dude I went to junior high with who was working at Wendy’s when I went in there like 4 years ago. It was a little strange, but I didn’t know his situation.
