I don’t know what it is about “Generation Ze/Zer” that makes them think they’re entitled to work a job that they chose to apply for in whatever fashion they like. That’s not how life works. It’s one thing to be frustrated with your job. I get it. But it’s a whole other thing to make a social media video decrying why the company they chose to work for needs to change in order to accommodate their feelings.

Here’s a pro-tip that comes with experience in the workforce — get over yourselves.

A trans Starbucks barista took to social media to call for unionization because they had to work 8 hours a day on the weekends when they had to indicate they were open to work. You know how I know that? My first job was at Starbucks many moons ago.

This “person” claims to also be going to school, which almost deserves praise for being a part of “Generation Ze/Zer” and both working and going to school. But, the former girl turned guy was in tears because they had to work 8 hours a day on the weekend.

I’m literally about to quit. I don’t know if I’m going to do it, but like, I really want to. I almost walked out today. And I’m crying in the back room, and I almost cried on the floor. I’m a full-time student. I get scheduled for 25 hours a week, and on weekends they schedule me the entire day — open to close. I’m on the schedule for eight-and-a-half hours, both Saturday and Sunday.

Sorry, but I feel absolutely ZERO sympathy when it comes to the hours. I understand that some days can be really stressful, especially in a restaurant/cafe setting. I completely get it. I worked in restaurants for 11 years in different capacities.

But, as someone who went to school full-time while being the head bartender at a national restaurant chain, closing the restaurant two to four times a week and still graduating with honors, I won’t sympathize, empathize or any other “thize” with this person. Life is way more difficult.

Is going to school full-time and working easy? No, but it certainly gets you ready for the real world by both gaining the skills through school to prepare you for your field and understanding that working hard is part of the game of life.

If you want to come anywhere close to “winning” the game of life, you need to understand that hard work is perhaps the key element in achieving that goal.

And, this person claims they’d been misgendered that day. Even if they were, what does that have to do with not liking that they have to work eight hours? I guess the “alleged” harassment makes it worse, but that doesn’t exclude you from doing your job.

I’ve been called every name you can possibly think of since beginning this job nearly seven years ago. But, you don’t see me crying about it. In fact, my personal policy is to steer into the skid and just accept the labels that people who know next to nothing about you slap you with.

It’s just mind over matter. I don’t mind, because they don’t matter.

Plus, this person’s job can’t be too hard if they can find the time to record a video for social media in the backroom of the establishment.

Try again.
