“I missed a shift because my phone doesn’t have reception out here.”
I couldn’t believe what my friend was telling me. This confused me. I asked her why she didn’t do anything about her reception issue when she stressed about missing out on the shift. She told me that she went with a cheaper phone plan (about $40 less monthly or so) to save money but that the phone didn’t offer the best service. Her phone had no reception in most areas of the city. That $40 savings had just cost her a shift where she could’ve made at least $150.
It can be expensive to be cheap. I want to look at when you should save money and when you should never save money.
