I might have to quit my job.

This is one of the most unfair things I have had to do.

So, everyone knows how hard I work at my job. I work all the time and I always give my 100%. I have given up events because I had to work and, honestly, I seriously love my job. I learn so much from it everyday and It has made me who I am. There are all these people I talk to that have worked at Hot Topic as long as I have and complain about how "They don't feel like they can ever leave" and "it's a huge trap". But, I have never once felt like that.

Last May I got promoted and I have learned so much since then. I've worked my ass off and never complained about it.

Well, yesterday my manager Dana told me that there is this store manager from Texas who's partner is dying from cancer and she is moving here to be with her family. Which means she is getting demoted to part-time assistant manager (the step above of what I am) and taking my job, basically.

They want to move me to Promanade. Which, not only is a pretty unsafe mall, it is super far away from my house. I can't drive. And even if I started driving tomorrow, I couldn't drive there by myself at the end of the month.

So, my choices are:

1. Move to Promanade.
2. Get demoted and stay at Woodland. Meaning I would lose money and all my hours.
3. Quit.

That's it.

It's not 100% final yet. But...It's so upsetting that there is nothing I can do. NOTHING.

Thats some bullshit. Can they really just demote people like that? And honestly, why is the cancer girl getting to move stores, if she is dying thats great to be with your family, but if she is that sick, she probably shouldn't be working anyway.

No, no. She isn't dying. Her partner is dying.

Apparently I signed a paper when i got hired when I was sixteen that said I could be moved if necesarry. Not that I thought that would ever happen when I am sixteen. ugghh.
