This is a tough one to face.
I had some issues at work last week. I blogged about them, so I won't go into them again. Just want to say I made a decision. I decided overall I like my job, and would make some compromises. I was not 100% okay with everything, but I found a way to make it work for me.
Anyhow, I was off sick today.
Got a call from the boss tonight. He expected me to get out to Lampman for a training course. There's a WHOLE mess around this course. I'm expected to drive myself there - 1/2 hour. Take the course. Then drive myself to the office to work - 45min away. I don't get compensated at all for drive time. So I'll still be gone from home for the same 12 hours I always am, but am expected to only be paid for 8 hours, loosing my 2 hours of OT for that day. So NOT going to happen.
So as far as the boss knows, I don't have a vehicle. I told him last week. My hubby's truck is in the garage until Friday. He's taking my vehicle for the week. I arranged to car pool into work for the week.
Well, my ride that I should be car pooling with is not available tomorrow. The field workers are shut down because of extreme cold. So I no longer even have a ride out to the field office.
Looks like I'll miss work tomorrow too.
The boss seems pi$$ed off that I'm not going to make it to this training course - there's a whole mess of issues behind why he is so insistent that I take this course, and I'm so NOT interested. There may be some value to it for me, but it's mainly for him and his issues...
Anyhow, this could all piss him off badly enough that I might loose my job.
I discussed this with hubby tonight. He's behind me 100% no matter what I choose or what happens. But that's little comfort.
So after everything that's gone on, and all the decisions that had to be made, it looks like another monkey wrench is tossed into the mix.
I'm going to try to not let this get me dragged down too much, but....
Gosh, it's making me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.
I need to accept that it's out of my hands. Put it on a shelf, and not try to worry about it. I can't do anything about it. It is what it is.
