This summer I decided to get a job, and after a month in I only found a place as helping hand of a supervisor at a factory.
The problem wasn’t the job at all, I liked what I did and my supervisor was a sweetheart. The problem was that the job is at the village my mother grew up in. ( she had gone to the city and built herself a life there, where I grew up).
I hated coming to visit so much, my grandma was an ashole, all of the kids would insult me and throw firecrackers at me, they terrified me. And the thing that I hated the most was teens insulting me on the street. They would come with their bikes, scream something hurtful while biking, then turn around and come back to do the same. After that happened twice I stopped going out at all. Just kept inside my grandmas home and watch TV until we went back to the city with my mother.
Now, it’s been a while since I had been there, and I’ve grown up so i went to work there anyways. I really thought all of that had stopped, so I went out with my cousin when i was free.
But no. While walking to work at six in the morning, three 30 year olds started walking behind me and screaming. They where indeed, screaming at me, a lot of hurtful things and all I could think is “no way this is happening again”,I just walked faster and at some point one of my mothers friend asked me if they where screaming at me and if that was why I was crying, but I just told her I was on my way to work and kept walking ( I can barely talk while crying).
Since then I didn’t go out again in, my grandma told me I was lazy and I just took it because I dont want to go out and that’s it.
Today I’ve decided the pay isn’t enough to keep me working, I made my bags and told the supervisor that I was going back to the city to prepare for college. My grandpa just took me to the station and I’m now on a train on my way home.
Being at home alone so much was bad for my mental health and I started to feel very depressed, not to talk of the fear of going outside. So I feel I took a good decision for myself.
TLDR: I hate the village I work at, I was insulted on the street and the fear of going outside it caused was bad for my mental health. So I just upped and left.
I’m sorry if it’s too long or badly formatted.
