Ahhh.... Stress Lifted?

Well, it seems that my fiance got some work finally, but neither one of us is convinced until he actually starts working. He's had two false starts now, with two different restaurants that both hired him, but couldn't get their act together to actually start him. This went on for an entire month with each restaurant. Who's ever heard of such a thing? It's been INSANE... the waiting, the multiple phone calls every day and night, trying to get a hold of someone who could put him on the schedule. It was a circus and caused SO much stress for us.

We've been in a pressure cooker of a situation for two or more months straight, with me needing to take money out of savings to keep us afloat, with money running short, and both of us stressing. And with me only working part time hours now, it's been far too much to deal with, not knowing if my fiance can even stay here with me. Let alone, we didn't know where he would go if he had to leave - his family kicked him out, which makes me beyond livid. I feel absolute rage towards them for doing this to him, and he couldn't stay with friends, either.

So, for now, it seems that the stress has been lifted. Once I get full-time employment again, we should be Ok and should actually have extra money to play with. I cannot wait for that day to come since I need a haircut and there's also a couple upcoming concerts I want to go to.

Why does money have to rule the world anyways? It does, and I hate it. I always want more of it, too, like right now. I want a higher salary so I don't have to stress anymore about having enough.

Just this morning before we got the news, I thought about starting a donation fund for my fiance so he could stay here with me. Guess that was a desperate thought, and thankfully, I don't need to do that now... at least I hope not.

I feel what you're saying. Money:- Hate it but can't live without it. I resent the fact every one of us is condemned to a life of being a 'wage slave'. It sucks, it's not a life. They say modern day people are actually more depressed and stressed than they have ever been in history and quite frankly I can see why. 

I sincerely hope all your financial stresses get sorted out soon. If you can help it, try holding off on those concert tickets until things are sorted. Impulse buying is a killer!

I sooooooo agree with you! I hate it too!!!!! It drives me insane that we need money in order to live and survive. And without it, we don't have a good quality of life.

My fiance and I broke up (long story), so the financial burdens are gone, but I feel absolutely horrible now.

Exactly! it's basically the modern day equivalent of slavery, lets face it! I hate it when people say 'well it's life get used to it'.. No.. no i don't want to get used to living out my days just working making other people lots of money. *rant over*  Oh i'm so sorry to hear that about you and your fiance, that's dreadful :/ I hope you guys can sort it out, whatever the issues may be.

They actually didn't want to hire him. It's a run-around that jobs, especially in america, are well known for. Worst ones(which I've experienced) is actually getting hired and not being paid for 4 weeks. That isn't the usual "week and a whole" thing either.

They did him a favor not hiring him. He probably would have been in a bad working environment anyway.

Yes, maybe so. Though now he says they will need him in a couple weeks once the college students are gone. Doesn't matter now anyways... we broke up. :coopcray:
