How do I get my (25F) boyfriend (24M) to realize that not going into work because he woke up late is bad?
My boyfriend (24M) and I (25F) have been together for 7 years and have been living together for just shy of 2 years.
My boyfriend has been working warehouse/factory jobs since 2019. The issue here is whenever he misses his alarm or doesn’t wake up in time, he lets his job know that he’s not coming in, rather than just going in late.
I tell him that even though he wakes up late he still should go to work, but he says things like “I can just pick up an extra day next week” or “it’ll be a point towards my attendance anyway whether I go in or not”(he usually works on a point system for attendance).
I will be honest, I am getting sick of this mentality. He makes $10 an hour and is missing out on a 12 hour shift.
We have been struggling financially and I cant help him out as much as I am working part time because I am a full time student.
He has lost jobs in the past due to attendance, or the job is not a good fit for him. Ever since moving in together, he has not kept a job for more than half a year, and I swear if he loses this job because similar past action I will lose it.
How can I get him to realize that not showing up to work just because he woke up late is not ideal? Thanks!
