I have been hounding my boss for a while, because I want her to give me a chance as a delivery driver at the medical and recreational marijuana shop.
I was hired to work inside of the shop, but I know that the drivers make a lot more money than I do.
I asked my boss a couple of weeks ago if she could put me on one of the shifts for delivery. She told me that all of the drivers have to get their hours, so it really wasn’t going to be easy for her to put me on the schedule. I understood exactly what she meant, because the drivers need to be able to get their hours just like everyone else. I was supposed to have the last Friday night off and my girlfriend and I were going to go to dinner and the movies. I haven’t had a Friday night off in a really long time, so my girlfriend was super excited for we to go out. My boss called me at 6:00 and she asked if I wanted to pick up a shift as a delivery driver. She told me this was my opportunity to get a shift and show her what I could do. My girlfriend begged me not to take the shift at the marijuana dispensary, but this was my only chance to prove that I was serious when I said I wanted to work as a driver and not inside of the dispensary. My girlfriend still refuses to take my calls and it’s been a week since I took the shift.
