I am torn about the place I work at right now. It's a small stationery/Hallmark store... one half of the store is Hallmark cards and gifts and stuff, and the other half is the kind of office products and stationery you'd expect from a stationery store, with a little Kinko's-style copy center. It's a really laid-back, low-stress job. It's mere minutes from my house. Here's the problem. The boss is a SLOB and an IDIOT. He never pays his bills to his suppliers on time so we're always getting calls from companies/lawyers demanding money. He never gets my paycheck right. It seems like every single payday I have to march into his office and tell him "NO, I did not work FOUR hours this week, I worked SIXTEEN." Now here's the thing... I need money. I really need money. Though I am only 17, I do have various bills to pay that total around $120-150 every month. I need a part time job that will allow me to pay that. I really want to quit and find a job under someone who's not a total and complete moron. But with the economic situation, it doesn't look very likely that I'll be able to get a job, and if I do, it might only be for the holiday season. I need a lasting job. So what would you do? Would you just keep working at the same place and have to fight every single week to get the money that you deserve, and have to pick up the phone every day to hear some irate customer complaining about how stupid the boss is? Would you quit and try to find another job? I really don't know what I should do. Any help is really appreciated.
