Got Fired Again, Fml.

Well what can I say- this is the second time I got fired from a job for being absent or not showing up on time, and I gotta say that the more this goes on, the more I just can't take it anymore. It's like I just can't learn to be on time and show up to work every time. There were times that I just didn't wake up on time and I missed my shift, and sometimes I missed it altogether. This happened 3 times at my last job, and the fourth time I actually had a doctor's note for it but my boss decided that because of the past **** ups he didn't want to keep me, and I couldn't argue with his logic at the end. I knew it was coming at one point. At Six Flags, the job I had before this, I didn't show up once, they suspended me and I couldn't find a valid reason to come back- I just told them the truth, that I couldn't wake up on time. I don't know what is wrong with me. It can't be helped. I can't even help myself. I feel like a ****** up social experiment. It's like I can't be fixed, and nobody can help me. How do I fix this? How can I fix me? I jave to come to grips with this again, and my dad told me that I'm gonna be a bum if I keep ******* up, and that if I **** up one more time, I'll be kicked out of the house and sent on my way. Yeah, I don't know what to do with myself. I'm in a relationship with this girl, and we're pretty close already but I haven't committed to her yet. I haven't told her that I got fired yet. Ironically, she got fired from her job a week ago but she has a job again so that's good. Wth do I do?

Talk to people and find out why you can't wake up on time. Maybe there's something wrong with your sleep. Otherwise, maybe you're just not disciplined enough. I was late a lot too when I was a teenager in part-time jobs. The real reason was because I didn't like the jobs and just wanted to be free. Then after getting harsh warnings, I smartened up and took a positive attitude and changed the way I thought about the job. I knew it wasn't forever and that I would have more interesting jobs in the future. So, in your case, try to wake up on time and leave on time so that you don't have the stress of being late and give your boss a reason for firing you!
