My unemployed boyfriend is forcing me to not to work on Saturdays because he wants to spend more time with me

My roster is Tuesday to Saturday because that's what my boss wants me to do. But recently my partner has been chuckin a fit because I have to work Saturdays. I'm the only income earner. What would you do?

The answer should be a definite NO!
This has nothing to do with spending time with you on Saturday, it's all about control.

Uh... say that until he gets a job and you’re the only income provider, your schedule is what it is

Ignore his fits and Work your Tuesday to Saturdays roster .. once you start changing your life to suit your BF he will try to control everything else...

He's forcing you, not requesting?
Leave. Leave now. That controlling behavior does NOT get better, but will gradually get worse.

Dump his ass.

Kick his ass to the curb. Nobody, I repeat, No one should tell you what to do, where to go when to work, or try to control you in any way.
Just saying.😒

Tell them that you have a responsibility to that job, it's your livelihood. If he can't understand that, then he needs to grow up.
ask your boyfriend to find a job for himslf first..

You pay, you say, dear.

Get out!!!!!!
djjohnson · 41-45, M
Wait! if he isn't working then why does he have to hang out with you on Saturdays? Wouldn't any other day of the week work just as well?

[@523151,djjohnson] According to him it's not the same as normal people working MOnday to Friday. I think he's just making me choose between him or my job😅
djjohnson · 41-45, M
[@1000862,MzAnonymouz] Monday through Friday is a typical desk job/manufacturing work week. But it isn't normal. If it was we wouldn't be able to go shopping or do anything fun on the weekends since all the stores and things would be closed. The majority of jobs out there are open all week. How many jobs has he had that he only had to work Monday through Friday? Seriously this guy need to get out into the world more.

Explain what the situation is to him, if he doesn't like it its up to you to decide whats more important
xixgun · M
You aren't high enough in the company to decide when you will and won't work.
I'd go with DarkSky's advice.

[@1000862,MzAnonymouz] are you sure where not married to the same person

Do what you want,work and earn money,and tell your lazy boyfriend he does tell you what to do.
Londonguy23 · 46-50, M
Its work and it brings in money. If he can't understand that then dump his ass.
ElSenordeLosCielos · 22-25, F
Tell him to either deal with it or get a job.
