    On June 11, 2015 I quit my job.

    I was always there any time they needed me. Many times I was called at the last minute to fill in for someone who didn't show up. I never complained about it. I just played the game and was reliable and flexible as I could possibly be. I thought it would eventually pay off. After 4 years I asked for a raise to $10 an hour or a fixed schedule at the same rate of pay. They said, "F*** you" but my boss said it in Spanish so it sounded a lot nicer than that.

    I put in my two weeks notice and left promptly. Once I got my last check I avoided that place like the plague. Now thy are calling me and wanting me to come back.

    Should I tell them to "f*** off" or what? What should I do?

    I prefer sitting at home on my butt doing absolutely nothing. I just don't know how to respond to this nonsense. Do they want to pay me more or do they just want to screw me over more?

    I always found it advisable not to quit until you had a better job lined up

    Rightwinger has a point...

    Stick it to them by accepting, then sending out as many applications as you can, and then leaving abruptly once you have secured a more desirable job.

    Do this but demand the set schedule and $12/hour.

    First off you made less than $15hr?

    Alright, accept the job back like some have wrote and put your resume out to as many companies you can and try to find a better paying job.

    Now depending on your age and education your choice in the career field might be limited, but could be expanded.

    Talk to them and find out.If you make less than ten dollars an hour, I'd get a trade and earn 2x to 3x that amount...

    I recommend refusing their offer if you prefer sitting at home on your butt doing absolutely nothing.
    If you have any self respect at all, I'd say take it and use your off time to find a better position.

    Ask, young man, and then you will know.

    I am sure that you will make the right decision.

    The fact that you were making less than $10/hour means nothing to me. What matters is how happy you were with your old job and how confident you are in your prospects for the future. Most people begin at the very bottom and I have done the same.

    You say you would rather sit at home and do nothing. That may be how you feel at the moment but you will quickly tire of doing noting. Count on it. You are too ambitious to settle for less than what you are capable of.

    I wish you the best.
