Last night I was stuck at work with no ride home. I asked everyone I could think of. I messaged my friend and ask him if he gotten a car this weekend he said no. I even called Starfish hoping he went out after work and was around. I figired I give whoever he was with gas money maybe they give me a ride. I was desperate and really did not want to walk all that way in the dark. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was in town or through towns but it isn’t. It is about a 25 minute drive. One way down the main highway over bridges your not even supposed to walk out there the other way is a main big raod that goes through from the beach to the other county. Its pretty dark on most of it and no side walks. But I didn’t have $100 or more for a cab and wouldn’t pay it if I did. I just paid $35 to take my little one to the er and back the other night. I know they jave wear tear on their cars and gas and all that but the prices they charge really is a lot. I have no idea how they stay in business. I can drive my huge truck 20 some miles on $5. They charge $35 for a 10 mile or less round trip.
I posted asking if anyone could pick me up and i got call a cab. Even after saying I did not have money to call one. I finished up working and clocked out locked up. Went outside to sit down a few minutes I was tired and wore out. About that time my bff messaged me ask where I was it been about an hour since I posted asking for a ride. I told her work still. She said she was leaving her moms and was on her way.
She got there she said she not been on line amd had no idea I had posted another friend of hers seen it and called her.
I had already decided I was going to most likely call and tell them I could not make it today because I had no ride. My boss messaged me about something i forgot to tell him about. I told him I was looking for rides to get there. It was hours before I had to be there. He called said it was slow he may just call it and close or do it by appointment and go in if he got calls to keep him updated and he would me. Hour or so before I had to be there told him I was still looking for a rode everyone is busy or away. He messaged back and said to enjoy the holiday with my kids. I see he has one room at 5 and had a couple this morning. I guess he is probably just going in for those. I was surprised.
I am glad because I have been so stressed over this job the last few weeks with talking to the owner and the boss being in a mood because they are coming down on him. Afert saying he was going to get rid of me because of not having a ride I figured today would make him mad he say I did it because its a holiday. I figured the owner would be mad as well I didn’t want that because he seems decent so far and like he really cares. I like the job and think I can make it work if he changes things.
