She started taking phone calls on her personal mobile phone about work on her day off and before or after her shifts started.If she needed to go the doctors or dentists she would leave it a matter of weeks until her work schedule allowed it.Sometimes she didn’t get home until 9.30pm and may have to be up at 5am the next morning for another shift working until 5pm that night.For six months she really worked 6 days a week - 70-80 hour weeks.If she had a weeks annual leave, she'd end up going back to work early and cancelling some days. On her day off, she didn’t seem to be able to relax with me and was snappy.
Then the second half of the relationship she got another job at a much larger store further away with more responsibility and lots of stress.
