So I'm currently looking to have two jobs...at least one full-time and one-part time. I received a voicemail late yesterday afternoon asking me to come in for an interview for a gas-station clerk job.
I originally had written on the application that I prefer graveyard shift (because that would make having two jobs the easiest.), and I stand by that. I know they don't pay enough to make it a full-time, priority position.
But here's the thing. I'm a girl. A small girl at that. I was raped at gunpoint a few years ago, and I know gas station clerk jobs can be dangerous.
I was literally exhausted, but was filled with so much anxiety last night at the thought of being attacked again, I couldn't fall asleep until 6 AM this morning.
My question is--in your opinion, am I being totally ridiculous?
I guess I'm looking more for reassurance that I'll be fine more than anything else, lol.
My father passed away suddenly, and young, last October. He was my best friend and we had a special relationship that I don't think most parents and children have. My father also had remarried about 10 years ago and as a result of that marriage I have a wonderful 8 year old half sister. I have had a good relationship for the most part with my step mom. She is foreign, came to the US upon marriage to my father, and speaks good English but has refused to seriously pursue working since coming here.
My father named me as the sole beneficiary on one life insurance policy, and her and I as both equal beneficiaries on another. She is getting my father's remaining 401k and Pension that remained and grew after he divorced my mom. She is also getting a sizable monthly sum over the next 9 years from social security survivor benefits.
The policy that I was named as the sole beneficiary, is approximately 1/3 of the total amount of liquid money available from all proceeds combined, both mine and hers. She is telling me that her and my father discussed how he had to update the policy to change the beneficiary to her so that she could take care of my sister if my father passed. She also says my father would have never left me the that amount of money when she needs it more.
She has told me that my father would never intend for her to be working until she was 70, and that by me giving her this money she would not have to. In my opinion, the nature of the US today is that realistically, especially with social security running out, we will all have to work longer. Furthermore, she gets penalized from SS with how much she can receive if she works. She says she sold her property where she is from in the hopes she would grow old with my dad and they would share what they have.
My father had told me in the past, on a couple of occasions, that if he were to pass away I would be taken care of. I never listened to him much and would get upset when he would say things like that. I never let him explain exactly what that meant--it hurt too much to think about something that I thought was decades away.
Currently, she lives in a gigantic house that they completely renovated during the 2 years before my dad died. It is hers. She has a car, and insurance. I live in a shack. Her and my father owed a few debts which I paid off for her with the money I have received. They were not small debts. The only money she currently owes is the remainder of the mortgage on the house.
I am learning disabled, however after several years, I have finally completed professional school. My disability is such that at my current clerk job where I make a minimal amount, I work 10 or 11 hours a day to equate to 8 hours of work done by somebody else. In other words, I only record the 8 hours. My fiancé is also graduating medical school soon. Combined we owe $400,000 in student debt. Jobs in our fields pay a fraction of what they used to, and for me, finding a job is incredibly difficult in this economy (wasn't like this when I started school). I can't even realistically get licensed until February of next year. My fiancé will be making a minimal residency wage.
I have worked incredibly hard to get to where I am today, almost 30, and really could use this money to pay off student debt, put a down payment on a house, start a business, and simply for security when life seems so unsure for me right now. My future expenses are unknown and I will be moving in a few months, but won't know where until March 15.
She has called me yet again to discuss the money my father left "us" (me) and how we are going to divide it. What do I do? I already explained to her that I feel my father meant for me to have it. I already told her that I am planning on putting a large sum into an educational trust for my sister. She has money for now, and I feel she really needs to start working. I do. She was married to him for 10 years and is getting over 2/3 of the money over a 10 year period. I loved my father dearly and I had a 30 year relationship with the man. We were best friends.
Please tell me, what do I do? Am I wrong in feeling that I should utilize this blessing and gift my father provided me in his death? Is it wrong that I should feel that for the first time in life I have some comfort and financial security? Am I morally obligated to give her any money? She says that even if I were to give her 1/2, she would still be getting screwed.
I explained things wrong. What she has now that could be converted to cash equates to a little more than what my dad left me. Adding SS benefits and the equity in the house, makes up for the other 1/2.
I have received job offers from GiantTons LLC about working from home receiving packages. This company is supposed to send you packages and then you forward them. Pay is 2000 a month plus bonuses. Has anyone else received this job offer? I am hoping this is not a scam because it sounds like a great job offer. I cannot seem to find anything on google about this company other than their own website. Please help me out!

I'm 20 years old and was recently arrested for shoplifting and false name last month. I need a job, any job, real quick to help pay for legal fees and upcoming fines. I've got no prior official work experience. Are there any places/companies/positions that are more lenient or easier to get jobs as? Any recommendations?
I don't think secretaries, clerical workers, customer-service representatives, for example, are white-collar, even if they work in an office or semi-office environment, or even nurses and teachers. What I'm confused on is if white-collar is only doctors, lawyers, accountants, bankers, architects, corporate managers, etc. or if jobs like purchasing and procurement specialist, human resources manager, social worker, and paralegal are truly white-collar.
I know that blue-collar usually refers to professionally-skilled trades like plumber, electrician, truck driver, police office, firefighter, etc. But where I'm confused is whether general/low skilled warehouse workers like loaders/unloaders, forklift drivers, packers, shipping/receiving clerks, etc. are necessarily blue-collar because doesn't "blue-collar" imply a skilled worker?
