    For the past few months, I've been going non-stop. School, work, friends and family. I've turned into an overachiever, but I've got to make a choice because I can't keep doing this...

    Here is basically by schedule. School all week long, I work twice during the week, and every day on the weekend, except Sunday which I have to devote to my family and friends and church. On the weekend, I also have skate practice.


    Now, my grades in school are OK, but could be better. Not to mention I'm not close to anyone at my school other than two people which I hang out with outside of school because I've known them for a while. I feel detached. I’m 16 and don’t even have my permit because I don’t have the time.

    I work with a ***** who refuses to make peace and even ridicules me. She brings drama to the work place and doesn’t always do her job. She’s disrespectful to me and the customers. (we work at a roller rink) If everything else in my life was settled I could deal with her, but since they aren’t, I can’t deal with her or work because of it.

    Should I quit?


    Positives:
    -No stress
    -No more dealing with the btch at work
    -More time with friends & family
    -More time to skate and actually get good at it
    -Join Theater Club at school
    -Drivers Ed

    Negatives:
    -No money
    -No more free stuff
    -Can't take liberties
    -Gain title of quitter
    -No work until summer
    -Things become awkward with friends at work.

    Honestly, there's really never a reason to put up with crap like that at work. Believe me, there's nothing wrong with quitting your job if you don't like it. You're only 16, your focus should be on enjoying your youth while you still can. I miss having the time to go skating... I used to be pretty good, but now all my time is taken up with school and work.

    It's just a job, you're sure you can't get another one?

    Get her fired and ask your manager to rework your schedule so you have fewer hours each week.

    Just throw your shoe at her head while she skates and point to the kid standing next to you...

    No, I like my job, in fact, I love my job. I just can't stand it because I don't have the time for it and I can't stand working with that girl.

    Already have, it's not working out. I work on friday and saturdays, so I have no real social life on the weekends except for Sunday....

    I'll come back in a flash once they fire her.

    You work every day on the weekend except Sunday. :dry:

    That's like, "How long have you been sick?"
    "In 3 weeks it'll be a MONTH now! :("

    You're still in high school, so, if the job is getting to the point where you're seriously considering quitting... quit. Focus on school and having a social lif while you can. :up:

    And if you're planning o quitting but looking for another job, make sure there are jobs available.

    Well when you're 16 working all Friday after school until 11:30 and working from 10 am - 7pm and you're too pooped out to chill with friends after, it feels like all weekend. :csad:

    Nah, I don't need another job, I don't have time. That's mainly the reason for my quitting now.

    I'd say at your age, quitting your job isn't the end of the world and it is important to have a life and enjoy your youth while you can. But quitting is hard habit to break once started and done too much, which I'm sure you are aware of. Don't fret on it too much, you're young.

    Best plan is to drop the church activity for something more worthwhile. :up:
    Also, do they not have a manager at your work who can reign in the ***** co-worker?
    Also, there is plenty of time when you're an adult to have no life because of too much responsibility.
    It's a necessity when you're an adult, so you're really blowing your one chance in this life to have a relaxing, fun time......unless you become mega wealthy or grow up to be a crazy bag lady.

    Can't drop the church thing without dropping all my good friends or losing my relationship with my parents.
    I've already gone to my managers about my co-worker. It's either her or me now.

    Well if your friends are willing to bail because you dont want to do church stuff, then they arent your friends.

    Don't quit your job....you can't let someone else dictate a decision like that.

    It's a lot more complicated than that. It's not my friends, it's their parents of course.

    If I had time to deal with her, I wouldn't quit, but I don't have time. That's the point.

    Don't let other people dictate what decisions you make.....thats the problem with a lot of people my age and younger...im 28...they are too concerned with what their parents of their friends will think if they do something....

    I say **** 'em....

    as for your job....I dont know what you do, I work at a place where I can basically hide at my desk all day and not have to talk to anyone if i dont want to

    I kinda have, kinda have to. I work tonight.

    We have to be concerned about parents, because no matter what, until we move out on our own, our parents are the people we have to live with. And things go best if they're happy. Like the saying, "if momma ain't happy, the family ain't happy" or something like that. Besides, what's bad about pleasing the family and friends? :huh: Wouldn't that be better than giving the focus to somebody who doesn't deserve it? If she's dragging me down, I shouldn't let her do it even if it means letting her win. I say, let her win, let karma do it's thing. Let her live in her fantasy world that she won, because I don't give a damn. Her opinion doesn't really matter.

    I work with people to host birthday parties and I make food for people. That's my job. You have to work with people.

    Nah, I haven't let her walk over me, but I don't make a fuss of things because it's too much trouble.
