My favorite coworker and best friend is leaving me in one week. I honestly do not know how I’m going to survive the rest of the summer. I was okay when she told me last night but it really got to me right now. I know I have a lot of other people to talk to but it’s just not the same. My job is like high school. Everyone talks shit about everyone else. It’s expected in a work environment where the highest degree of education is a high school diploma or a GED. However, as long as you have that one person that will keep your personal life a secret it makes surviving at McDonald’s a lot easier.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m vey happy she got a new job that pays handsomely but she’s been there with me since day one. I’ve been at my job for three years and it’s great to be comfortable with your coworkers. I refuse to leave my job. I get overpaid doing the simplest things, I get all the hours I want, and they work around my schedule. I honestly don’t know any other job that will let me take two weeks off for Warped Tour or let me work overtime so I can pay for school books. Plus my job is like summer camp. It can be stressful at times but I laugh so much and have a great time every day. People think I’m lying when I say I love working at McDonald’s but it’s only because I love my coworkers. I spend more time with them than my own friends and family.
As much as my I want her to stay, I’ll hate her even more if she leaves and comes back. This is a great opportunity for her and I couldn’t be any happier. Hopefully I won’t be working on her last day but I know my manager will schedule us on the same day so he can see me be a sobbing mess. /end rant
