Nothin more stressful than being at work 2am on a Friday night/Saturday morning, and you’re jus staring at your Time Line sad as shit cause everybody’s drunk tweeting, and you’re at work with your slave uniform on mad as shit and sober… I live this struggle every Thursday through Sunday.
Most people say, “Oh Erik, your job has to be fun. You work in a night club.”
WRONG! Not when you’re a 153 pound security officer with self esteem issues. Dealing w dope dealers that r drunk as shit off of Ciroc N Henny at 3 am the worst shit ever. They don’t care that I have an ear piece and a flash light. They jus wanna drink, smoke weed, n throw their hoods up, and ain’t shit I can do, cause I need a job.
Jus hating my job n never able to eat my girl out cause she sleep when I’m awake. She definitely have sex w Charles, but ain’t shit I can do about it. I work nights.
A buddy asked if I wanted a new job that required traveling. I was young and didn’t have anything to lose so I said fuck it. Little did I know it was the night shift.
So im on the road working the night shift and I quickly realized it wasn’t all I thought it was going to be. I was locked in the store I was working in so there was no place to have lunch besides there. My boss was a prick and never traveled out of town, so he never seen the bullshit we went threw. Long hours and dirty work often led to hotel room scuffles and lonely down time in many hotel lobbies.
Nothing is open, I virtually became a vampire moping around at night just to earn a paycheck. People would look at me all weird n shit as I walked into the hotel lobby after a long night shift covered in dirt and sweat. Relationship on the rocks after being gone 6 days a week. Walking in to the liquor store at 6 am feeling like shit getting that look from the store clerk just made the end of my day worse.
Drinking heavily became apart of my life real fast and seemed to make things better. Only to find out it just made the night shift that much more shity working hung over. After 2 ½ years I finally threw in the towel, never to work the night shift again.
