So two weeks ago I went for a interview with Cabala's I nailed the interview they asked me to do a drug test and a back ground check. They are opening in a few months, I cant wait.

I hate my JOB I cant stand it. I work with chick fil a right now, most of the time its not so bad. There are just so many bad moments that make it almost unbearable to go to work most days. Like today, I injured my knee a few weeks ago, and Im been having issues staying on my feet for longer than 3 hours, with out a brake. Today I went in at 11 and didn't have a second to get a drink let alone take a brake until they finally let me go at 6. I was supposed to get off at 5.

I am thinking that working at cabalas wont me a great improvement, but I think that not having to push myself so hard everyday to run as fast as someone 1/2 my size and some 1/2 my age, then have to stand there and take orders from someone I helped train that knows have of what I do. Kinda gets under my skin.

I know I'm kinda ranting but I've just had a bad day altogether and to top it off I got my monthly visitor today. I was not in the mood for bs and that exactly what I got.

Cabala's is the sporting good store right? That seems like it would be an interesting place to work.

Fast food is high stress work for sure. Those darn hungry people pouring in the door all day and they always want to eat. And want it fast too.

Well, hopefully Cabala's will work out.

I couldn't work in a fast food place. I get irritated if I get questions, complaints, or distractions when cooking supper for the family. I can't imagine doing that for hours at a time!

I hope the Cabela's job works out.

My son worked at McDonald's and he says he never wants to work in fast food again. He also went without breaks and had to work extra hours. It seems to be the norm?

Congratulations to you for nailing the interview! I hope you really enjoy your new job. From what I have observed, Cabela's should be a much more pleasant place to work. I hope you love it.

Fast food is a little different than most places. They only have to give you a break if you work longer than 7:59 anything less than that they are not required to give us a break if I understand it right..

I dont mind all of that but I cant stand the operator or a couple of the managers. Even if the fact that they are following the law on the breaks they are breaking the law on a few other things. I know that at least one member of management that was clocked out while working without her permission. I was informed that if I didn't make sure every cup that goes out the window was clean that I would have a cup busted on me to help me remember to clean up the cups, by having to work the rest of my shift on soaked clothes

Oh my.. even if the new job doesn't come about you really need to get out of there. Get a job anywhere until you can get a job that suits you.

In Australia working one minute less than 8 hours without a break is absolutely unheard of. In a supermarket you might work 8.30 - 5 with a 10 minute break and an hour lunch. Childcare with 9-5.30 might be 2 x 30 minute breaks. There are still dodgy operators here with other issues, like elsewhere, but breaks are definitely something I've never heard anyone say is a problem (I'm 39y/o).

Okay.. now I've thought about it we here are in a very different economic situation. Our economy, employment etc has been one of the strongest in the global economy. However.. no one should work 8 hours straight without a dring/meal. That is third world, human rights stuff.

GREAT NEWS!!!! I got a second interview with Blockbuster Video, on Monday. I am so excited!

That's great!

I don't know how to say this nicely but. Blockbuster was a failing company that closed its store here. Just be careful. Maybe a little research?

Im thinking that it would be nice to work both Blockbuster and cabela's I just want out and will do what ever I have to get out..

Good thinking! I didn't want you to give up a chance at a company that seems to be growing ( Cabelas) with a company with problems. I wish we still had Blockbusters here. I hate those stupid boxes at the grocery to get videos.

Im not going to stay completely with blockbuster, because they are only offering me around 32-40 hours as a manager.

Cabela's is offering supposed to be offering me a job in their Front team, The people that go around fixing displays and setting them up. Could be full time but you never know so I would rather have another job that is willing to work with me with the schedule so that I can have both jobs, if I need both.

They really know how to exploit the "exemptions" rules here in American Exceptionalism Land.

I've worked the '7 hours on my feet doing hard physical labor with a ten minute break' routine, and was told I was lucky to get that, because they didn't have to provide it.

Also worked (for a short time, they never kept employees) at an agricultural job in a "right to work" state, which is the OPPOSITE of what it sounds like, if you are reading about this in the United States. It should be called a "right to fire at will" state. Because that is what it is, they can fire you at will for no reason, any time. Because it was ag - related, they could legally not give breaks, and only provided a half hour lunch, so by the time you washed up and took a bathroom break, you had about 20 minutes to eat. The owners were able to do this fire at will routine, because they had an attorney offspring for legal backup. The owner was nuts, when I told him to stop screaming at people who needed to use the restroom, he actually threatened me and had his equally nasty wife come and watch what I was doing the entire rest of the day, trying to pick my brain for personal information (which I was able to deflect, easily). This is pretty typical for the "other half" of America they never want to admit exists. There is always a large pool of people needing work, but it is really bad in the middle of the country extending down to the south, in rural areas.

This isn't economics so much as labor unions, which set the standards for what is considered desirable work, keeps giving to one political party or another, depending on what sort of work it is, then the party in power will stick it to them, anyway. I don't know that this country has ever had what could be considered a "good" economy in my lifetime. The outsourcing of manufacturing doesn't help. We are supposedly a very wealthy country, but there is more and more stratification of the classes into those making minimum wage, which does not any longer provide an adult a living for basic needs in many areas, can't afford food/shelter/transportation/clothes/taxes/fees, and those jobs have no health insurance benefits, and those lucky people who are working class or pink collar, with benefits, and somehow getting by. Now the professional classes got slammed in this last recession blow out.

Under past administrations in the eighties, union - busting was a priority, then in the late nineties, they changed rules to make more classes of work considered management, not rank and file, so managers are put on "salary" and can be worked forever with no overtime. We again have a lot of state and even city governments (with the cooperation of the current Federal level one, which is only good at lip service) trying to actively destroy unions (some unions, they consider the law enforcement ones nearly untouchable) and cut wages further, and get rid of benefits. It is pretty ugly with the constant attacks.

My spouse sometimes gets up at 4 am or 5 am to work until noon without a set, "given" break time, but he's management and he does this flexible- time routine. He is one of the hardest working people I have met, as he really concentrates on what he is doing, and is highly motivated to make sure he completes tasks, and to figure out how other people can complete theirs. You get into a nicer company and you are allowed to each lunch.... at his old job, he just gave up a lot of times, and would eat at his desk and work right thru, so he could come home in time to eat dinner and SLEEP. We compared his hours then, to what was expected 30 years ago, and it was crazy how much more time they expect you to put in now. If you are competent, they will always expect you to take on at least one other person's tasks, sometimes many more.

    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!    
    • I know for certain gastritis  is one of the main reasons I had the scope. That and my EOE symptoms . If it wasn’t for those I would have never been diagnosed 
    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
    • Good luck with the holistic doc. I saw a naturopath for months who set me on a good path until I couldn't afford all the supplements anymore. Be careful with that. I found nothing helped me more than decent whole food and good quality vitamins. And of course sleep and lots of water!
