And the new year hasn't even begun. Talking about negative thoughts. Why am I being told that I was on the schedule today for 7 a.m., this morning (that, in itself, is a joke) when I know the paper schedule had me off? And why does the schedule (we can now check it online) for January 1, show me reporting at 4 p.m. and getting off at 12 a.m.? Helloooo! Didn't I tell them weeks ago that I was NOT working New Year's Day! Didn't I tell them politely, I thought, that they needed to get one of the young girls who had a houseful of babies and needed extra hours to come in? And just why would they think that I put in to be off on Monday if I wanted to work until midnight that weekend. Working the cash register at that! Hellooo!
Does the tone tell you that I am royally pissed? Maybe they thought that I was joking. Hell to the naw! There are people who are only getting 1 day's work and and make less than I. I can assure you that they would welcome a 2nd day's work. To make up for that $3-a-gallon gas that they used to come in for 4-6 hours, for one day.
Don't get me wrong. I need a paycheck, too. But I will not be working January 1, 2011. Count on it.
Be safe. Be Blessed.
