A woman on TikTok says she has been working three jobs from home to make ends meet and pay for Christmas presents for her children.
TikTok user Kay (@thtgrlkayy) posted about her situation on Monday. By Tuesday, the video was viral with nearly two million views. In the video, Kay throws peace signs at the camera as Moe’s “Outta There” plays.
“When you’re 3 months behind on rent, single mom, no money, no [money] for Christmas So you find 3 WFH jobs and catch up and your kids have presents under the tree,” Kay writes in the video’s text overlay.
In the caption, Kay adds: “Nobody could make me feel bad about what I do!! PERIOD. & if you want help or have questions, send me a message! I want everyone to win.”
@thtgrlkayy No one could ever make me feel bad about what I do ‼️💯 PERIOD. & if you want help or have questions, send me a message! I want everyone to win. #wfh #remotejobs #workfromhome #workfromhomelife #wfhcheck #singlemomsaga ♬ Outta There – Moe
Kay does not elaborate on what their jobs are. In response to a user who asked why people who promote work from home never say what they do, she wrote that she didn’t specify her job because “people are mean and hateful here.” However, she says that anyone with questions can email the address in her bio.
While many viewers applauded the mom for her hustle, others questioned her methods, saying they can’t find work-from-home opportunities.
“Come on, I can’t even find one right now,” commented one viewer.
“In the meantime I’ve been trying 6 months to get a remote job,” wrote another.
Other moms shared what they did in situations similar to Kay’s.
“Single Mom…I just got my second today! Currently looking for my third… 2023 is definitely a money mission!” one user wrote.
“And that’s how I got into adult entertainment,” another shared. “Within a month I caught up with everything and never left my house.”
