Today is going to be a good day. It’s my boyfriend’s day off so we have the whole day to ourselves. We only talk on the phone most of the week and sometimes, when he gets home, he falls asleep before talking to me because he is so tired. I don’t get mad at him, obviously. I get mad at his work for being so demanding. He works 60+ hours a week, with only one day off. He’s always tired. That bothers me a lot. I want my boyfriend to be happy in his job, I want him to have more free time. These are only dreams, of course. His feet get very sore from walking so much (he’s a waiter in an under-staffed restaurant). Furthermore, he doesn’t even have a contract. I wonder how bosses can live with themselves knowing that there are people that worked for them who lack financial security. I couldn’t live with myself knowing that but I know most bosses only care about profit. His bosses own lots of real estate and they earn huge amounts of money during the summer. In February, they are going to finally talk about a contract. I really hope he can get it. That would mean more stability for us, the possibility of renting a small house and him having better credit (which is very important because he wants to buy a car and it can be helpful for other things).
I would like to write more but I really need to get myself ready to meet him.
I hope you have a great day and thank you for reading!
