    I have been working at my current job for a little over a year and I want to move on to something better. I found a place currently hiring and if I get the job I will be making twice as much money, weekends off, and better benefits but the competition is super stiff and a letter of recommendation can really help my chances. I am worried about how he will react because he has no idea I want to leave and because we get along well I am worried he might take my leaving personally. How do I go about asking for a letter of recommendation?

  • Would this be a good idea to get weekends off?

    Every job I had included working weekends but I was thinking about lying to get weekends off when I get a new job. The lie is I can't work Saturday because it's Shabbat and can't work Sunday because I am a big brother. Would that get me weekends off?

    I am not going to mention any companies or industries but this is my situation. I spent 7 years in one industry with an impeccable record and all my references are from top level managers in that company speak incredibly highly of me but then I wanted to take a different path and have been in the different industry for a year but want to return to my original industry. But the kicker is the commute would be 2 hours and I would have to sort everything out with my current job for a few weeks. Would you hire me?

Should I ask my boss for advice?

    I have had a wide variety of jobs and each one I hated. I hate them to the point where I have intentionally made myself violently ill or hurt just so I have a reason not to go in. It's cold and flu season and I do what I can to get the flu because that guarantees me a week off from work. I got food poisoning from pizza once accidentally but kept eating so I can remain sick and get out of work. And sometimes I will intentionally hurt myself in the gym so I can get some time off. Is this normal.

    Question 1: How do I repay this woman's kindness? Scenario: I collect shopping carts at a major supermarket and there is this one regular who always asks me to get her an electric cart and when she is done I am always there to load her car with her groceries. Yesterday the same situation went down but this time she gave me a Christmas card with 10 bucks in it. How can I repay her kindness. Question 2: Is what I am doing bad? Scenario: Despite liking my customers I really hate my job to the point where several times a day I go to the bathroom to avoid work. I just sit on the toilet and play games on my phone. One time my boss confronted me about my frequent bathroom habits so I lied and said I suffer from Crohn's disease. Was I wrong to do that.

    For years I have been dealing with insomnia and for the past 10 years my doctor and I have tried everything to get me a good nights sleep but it all failed. So as a last resort I was given sleeping pills and they worked swimmingly. Only downside is they make me drowsy the next day so I have to consume caffeine to perk up and then I need the sleeping pills at night to counteract the caffeine and the cycle keeps on repeating itself. But keep in mind until I started sleeping pills I have never consumed caffeine.
