Question: Ok, so I don't talk to my parents. We don't get along. After a fallout because of my boyfriend, they told me I'm 18 an need to get a job. So I did, the fastest one I could get. It's a place called Hale and Hearty Soups in New York. I applied for cashier but instead they made me a server scooping soups for customers, wearing an inconvenient uniform and not giving enough hours at the rate of 7.75. I'm really depressed. I would like to work in retail but not seeming to get calls back. I don't know what to do. Food service is just not for me. My boyfriend is happy that I'm making money but I hate the job and my boss can tell and I only worked there one day. He said I should look more friendly. Please give me adive and if you live in the New York area can you tell me some jobs that are hiring. Thankyou!

For right now, give the job a chance. At least until you can find one more suitable to what you want. So in the mean time, put on a smile and make an effort to act like you like the job, even if you hate it. The one thing that you will hate is a bad reference when your potential employer calls your current boss and asks how you dealt with customers. Everyone hates food service. The pay sucks, the customers tend to be irritable and downright rude and you're expected to love what you do for little in return. But if you want to get a good work reference, give your best effort and keep the job, save up some money and keep putting in applications on your days off.

Is he the only supervisor there? Or are there others you still haven't met? At my job, I have many managers and there is only one that is unfriendly. I didn't like her at all at first and some days, I still don't. Yet I like my other managers and my co-workers so one rude person doesn't completely ruin it for me. If he's the only one, just try to keep a positive attitude. I would say that you should stay at the job for a little while and see if it gets any better. If the job is good with your schedule, it could be worth keeping if you can tolerate the supervisor after awhile. Keeping a positive attitude with the rude supervisor may make him realize how much of a jerk he's being. "Kill him with kindness", as they say, haha I wish you the best of luck! I know how hard that can be and the stress and fears involved in starting a new job. Hopefully it will work out for you! Besides, if the other employee can put up with it well enough, perhaps you can as well. If it gets too rough, just apply at a couple of other places while you're still there. Finding a job is so difficult in this economy!

Working retail isn't any better than serving food. You're still serving customers who aren't always friendly and you still have to do it with a smile on your face. And they get minimum wage too. I think it's time for you to do a lot of growing up and accept that you don't always get what you want, and sometimes that means working at a job you don't like because it's the responsible thing to do. If you're 18 years old and don't want to work crummy jobs all your life, save the money you're earning to get an education to get yourself a better job. Count yourself lucky that you've found one place to hire you. Getting your first job with no experience is difficult even in the best of times. With the slow economy, it's even worse. They're taking a real chance hiring you without any experience so don't screw it up.

malicia and Sassy2 have the right idea. Suck it up, get some experience, take what you can from the job and wait six months or a year, then move up to something better. If you quit now, you aren't going to get a good reference from the current boss when you apply for a new job. Better to be an excellent employee then have him say good things to the next potential employer.

I strongly suggest looking into network marketing. Someone before me stated that retail is not any better than food service, and to a point I do agree...like they said, you have to put on a happy face and deal with people who treat you like dirt even know you are just trying to help them. I have learned with network marketing you truly feel rewarded for you efforts, and don't have to put up with a boss. It doesn't require any special schooling, and you can be any age 18 or older. Network marketing truly gives people the freedom they need to success. Contact me if you would like to learn more. Tara makinglifebeautiful.webs.com apriori4me.com

Cramps are not normal, they can be common but that doesn't mean you should just put up with them, they're a sign of there being something wrong so you should look into doing something about them. In most cases women can totally prevent cramps, rather than just ease them. Avoid painkillers! They numb the pain at best, but can make cramps progressivly worse, instead try Clary Sage oil rubbed into your stomach, it works better than painkillers and it supports estrogen production and acts on pituitary gland to prevent cramps. Cell salts are a good painkiller alternative too, when you get cramps take them every 5-10 minutes until the pain stops. Diet is a big deal, get a balanced diet with foods rich in essential fatty acids and low in refined sugars, refined carbohydrates and hydrogenated fats, avoid foods that make you bloated such as salty foods, and some find dairy, caffeine and soy cause problems. Vitamins will help; omega 3, flaxseed oil (approx. 500Mg 2-4 times a day), B vitamin complex with 100mg of vitamin B6, Magnesium (100mg every 2 hours during menstruation), and vitamin E in d-alpha tocopherol form (50mg 3 times a day) - or just try a multi-vitamin daily and increase magnesium, calcium, iron and potassium which are needed for healthy menstruation. Excercise to stretch abdomen and improve breathing, this video of yoga postures for cramps - http://www.videojug.com/film/yoga-postur... Masturbation is also good excercise as it relaxes you and helps circulation. Complimentary treatments can help such as Chiropractice care or Acupressure, this video showing you how to use certain points to stop cramps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afYHM9y4l... Try drinking herbal teas; yarrow, lemon balm, black haw, chamomile, red raspberry, wild strawberry, valerian, and raspberry leaf all help, also try the Chinese medicine Bupleurum (xiao yao wan) you take 3-4 tablets 4 times a day a few weeks before your period. Also take Evening Primrose oil or Black Cohosh capsules daily to regulate hormones to help prevent cramps. If you use tampons then consider switching to a better option. Tampons expand into the cervix causing pain and outwards adding to the bloated feeling so well-known for increasing menstrual cramps. Tampons are also bad for vaginal health in general which effects your menstrual health, instead try sanitary pads, softcups or menstrual cups, which are not only healthier and more convenient than tampons but menstrual cups can also significantly reduce menstrual cramps. If all else fails see a doctor, get tests to see if there is an underlying cause as well as investigating yourself possible causes and treatments. If everything seems okay then ask for an anti-inflammatory drug such as Mefenamic acid to block the the synthesis of prostaglandin F2 alpha, a hormone responsible for cramps, you take these 3 times a day for the first 4 days of your period and they will help cramps better than any other prescription medication. Be warned - many doctors use birth control as a quick-fix but this works not to 'regulate' your periods but to stop them all together (the bleeding you do get break-through bleeding not menstruation). Although this will stop your cramps it's only because the problem is being hidden, as cramps are a sign of an underlying problem they may return once off birth control and cause other problems. Menstrual suppression also risks side-effects including increased cramping, and seriously lessens your ability to care for your sexual health - in short it's better to get the problem treated.
