The Question Club
Background: I work at a Subway, one of several that these people own. I've been there four weeks and been to two other stores besides my own. I also have a friend/quasi boyfriend/whatever he is that is in Minneapolis (three hours away from here) from today through Saturday, or Friday.
I got called in, asked to work on my day off tomorrow--8 to 4. I grudgingly agreed because I didn't have anything better to do, being that he was gone. He called tonight--he is thinking of me and wishes I was there, and I could do it--I could drive up tomorrow morning and be there through the weekend. I would have to miss a few days of work, but I've asked for three days off, in advance even, and gotten turned down on all of them.
I feel like this is a very "now or never" sort of situation, and this seems really big for the scope of potential relationship. I know it's a good sign that he wants me there, I knew he'd miss me, but not enough to suggest that I drive up. He's going to pay me for gas, the gas to go (borrowed from Mom) and food and everything...
I know what I'm going to do--go--but I just wanted to know: I'm not that crazy, am I? I mean, I can just sense that this could be a big deal, yanno? I've kept very low key on this whole trip of his thing, and this was SO NOT what I was expecting.
I'm flustered, can you tell? As for work tomorrow, I guess I'll just say I'm sick or that my grandma is or something. At the heart of it, I feel bad, but it's like (a) it was supposed to be my day off, and (b) life is short. Ah, I'm babbling. There's hardly any questions in this. Just the "am I nuts?" one, I guess...
Oh, and also: I'm supposed to close 5-11 Sat. night. He was going to come home, but he's feeling the pressure to stay. I'd like to stay as well, but Mom only wants to lend me the money if I come back for work that day. And I'm scheduled 11-8 on Sunday...how much should I fudge on this one? Ahhhh, life is insane.
I'd appreciate feedback, but I'm leaving at six am and it's quarter to midnight, so make it quick please and thank you! :-D
