So I am now working part time at Condom Sense, a sex toy shop here in Texas. My friends in the kink community helped me get it, and it's definitely a new experience for me, but a good one. It sadly pays less than what I got from unemployment, but unemployment was going to run out in March, so I was pressed to find something.
This job will require me to have a backbone and run the store by myself in the near future, which is TOTALLY new for me. I've always been under a supervisor, and frankly, I'm terrified to be by myself. But I'm 31 years old, so this is something I need to learn to do. Besides sex toys, we sell glass pipes and items that many people use for crack and heroine use. That means that I might have to deal with drug addicts in the future, and be brave enough to tell them to leave the store. There is also a high risk of theft in a sex shop, so I need to learn to refuse service and kick people out without IDs that prove they are legally able to be shopping for sex toys.
But I think it's time I started a job that forces me to not take any shit from people. I mean, I've been taking shit for the past 6 years of my marriage, so it;s hard to find my courage again so fast, But I feel it's a shove I needed.
I just don't get paid enough for this hah.
Anyways, wish me luck ya'll.
Love to all.
