To ask the question plain and simple: Is it wrong for me to absolutely refuse work around the weekends? (I.e. Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday.)
I'm jobless and freshly 18 years old, and I've recently started to *really* try getting a job after I got yelled at by a gay guy who used to work as a manager to fix my resume - because it was absolute horseshit beforehand. I finally got an interview yesterday to be a cashier at a local grocer, and I was basically told "This position isn't fit, we don't want people working weekdays", which is understandable. I left, and proceeded to think on places that would be more accommodating to what I consider to be hours fit for me - those being weekdays.
The simple fact of the matter is that there are two things to me that I need to deal with when it comes to hours under employment: One is that I'm in my youth, and I long to spend time with friends (and lovers) who usually only have the weekends to themselves. Two is that I'm generally a time-responsible person, who downright fucking refuses to engage in any sort of debauchery (Pardon the baroque English there, but what else do I call drinking and smoking dope and partying and all that shit) the night before I need to wake up to go fulfill responsibilities like work, school, medical appointments, etc. I refuse on principle to try to make a "close call" where I come into work 2 minutes before my shift hungover from the night before, that's just a dumb move. Because of those two aspects combined, I refuse to work on weekends.
I came home from the job interview yesterday and told my mother that I probably won't get the job simply because I refuse to work on the weekends. Thankfully, my mother is - albeit questionable at times - very gracious with me basically living like a leech off of her. She then bitched at me that it's just part of life - to work the "shitty shifts" when you're new, and I wouldn't find a job. Now, I'm fine working anything considered a shitty shift that isn't on the weekends, because who the fuck would really want to be up until 1am doing shit on a Tuesday night? Me. That's who. But I do not want to be working at noon on a Sunday for good reason, on both my personal end and on the end of my employer. So now I need to consult the anonymous internet Communist group if my viewpoint is "correct".
go to a furry club. many of them have a lot of spare wealth
Hiring manager is unlikely to give a fuck what your reason for 'needing' the weekend off is, managers want everyone to be flexible so they can cut as much staff as possible without worrying about gaps in coverage, why would he hire you when 10 other people walk in the door who are willing to work anytime? Not saying it's impossible but my stepdad looked for months to find a shitty job because he refused to work weekends, he only eventually found one that was in the stock control/office part of a factory.
Just look for a workplace that isn't open on weekends, it will be a lot easier.
If you're somewhat competent with computers you can find a bullshit part time work from home job that will pay like 16/h to 17/h.
You might want to try jobs with the government/companies that contract with the government (although some might at least require an associate's degree). I'm on month 2 of a 3 month contract with basically a helpdesk for a gubbernment website, I didn't finish a degree, but it's 5 days a week >$15 an hour
