A Woman Bursts Into Tears Over The Realities Of Her First 9-5 Job and Stirs Heated Controversy
Commencing a fresh chapter in one’s career journey often comes with a sense of trepidation. However, for a TikTok user who recently graduated from college, this transition sparked a surge of overwhelming emotions, as revealed in a video that has since gone viral. Brielle, hailing from New Jersey, used this video as an outlet to express her frustrations, breaking into tears as she lamented the lack of time for her social life due to her demanding job.
A TikTok user who had recently graduated from college broke down while talking about her work schedule.
The video, which has garnered over 1.5 million views, features Brielle in tears as she discusses her work-related challenges. She remarked, “Nothing to do with my job at all, but just like the 9-5 schedule in general is just crazy.”
While her job is located in New York, she was compelled to relocate to New Jersey due to exorbitant rent prices, resulting in a lengthy and vexing commute. “I leave here and get on the train at like 7:30am and I don’t get home until 6:15pm earliest. I don’t have the time to do anything.”
Brielle further conveyed how the conventional 9-5 work schedule left her with little personal time. She lamented, “I don’t have energy to work out, like that’s out of the window. I’m so upset. Oh my god.” She acknowledged feeling “emotional” and “dramatic” about her concerns regarding her job impeding her ability to spend time with friends or engage in relationships.
While many sympathized with her situation, others welcomed her to “adulthood.”
Many comments resonated with Brielle’s complaints, with one user stating, “It’s so repetitive and depressing. I feel you girl.” Another comment empathized, “You’re not alone, it’s insane how legit your entire day is gone.”
However, there were individuals who had a different perspective and humorously welcomed her to “the real world” and “adulthood.” One comment playfully noted, “Gen X here and this cracks me up.” Another user remarked, “I did a full-time job and 2 part-time jobs while going to college full-time. 9-5 is amazing.”
Meanwhile, another TikTok user made some noise and sparked heated discussions by revealing how she used a tampon to find out if her boyfriend was cheating on her.
