For the past 8 months, I have been working at the marijuana dispensary in Denver.
- I like the job a lot, but I usually have to work every weekend.
I knew that I was going to get stuff working on the weekends when I decided to take the job. Back then, I didn’t have a girlfriend or anyone to complain about all of the hours that I was working. I met my girlfriend a couple of months ago. She doesn’t really like the fact that I work every single weekend. I tried to tell her that it was a stipulation of getting the job at the Denver marijuana dispensary. My girlfriend told me that I have worked there long enough that I should be able to request a different schedule. I agree with my girlfriend, but I really didn’t want to force my manager to make a decision. When my girlfriend said she was going to find someone else to date if I didn’t change things, I finally knew it was time to talk to my boss. I told the lady that I was hoping to have at least one weekend day off twice a month and she seemed like that was no big deal at all. I was thankful that my girlfriend made me ask for the time off, and now I have at least every other Saturday off from the marijuana dispensary in Denver. There’s lots of new budtenders that can work the weekends and it really wasn’t a big deal at all to get the time off.
