I always have to work on the weekends

Saturday and Sunday are always the busiest days of the week for me and I always have to work on the weekend.

I work for a construction company that handles building remodels and renovations.

A large amount of our work is residential customers. Most of them prefer us to complete the construction jobs on the weekend instead of the middle of the work week. When I started working at the construction company, I knew that weekends were a part of the deal. When I met my girlfriend, we had a lot of trouble finding time to spend together. She worked at a job that scheduled her every day from Monday until Friday and she was always off work on Saturday and Sunday. I typically had days like Tuesday or Wednesday off in the middle of the week and my girlfriend and I never got to spend any time together. It was hard to develop our relationship without free time together on the same day. When my girlfriend started complaining about our relationship, I talked to my boss at the construction company. I begged the guy to give me one weekend off each month, but he refused. He told me that I could pick one weekend, but he could not guarantee to give me those days off each month. He also reminded me that I agreed to work for the construction company with the understanding that I would be required to work every single weekend. When I left the room, I knew I was going to be forced to make a very difficult decision.
