Not just a regular 'job' thing
Right now he's on a crew he loves, which is a big deal. These guys aren't just coworkers, they're family and they have to trust each other. So just the crew change is traumatic. But on top of that, he's being forced to switch shifts which is huge. Each shift has it's own personality, and Ryan is definitely a B-shift guy. And all his friends are on B-shift, so right now they have the same days off. More then just that though, we plan our lives around his shift schedule, so now everything we've planned in the next year is going to be completely in question. The Chicago wedding in Oct, the wedding job in November, our Disneyland trip in December... they are all planned on his B-shift schedule. And, you know, our trip in 4 weeks for Cancun.
I know all that is insignificant compared to how upset he is about the change in stations and crew. I feel so bad for him, and I can't do anything to make it better.
