Good things:
I am having a hard time finding the silver lining for yesterday...

I was suppose to take my safety certification, but the one manager that does not want me leaving happened to be the only manager on duty and he threw a curve ball so i couldn't do it. I didn't realize how far he is willing to go to keep me in my current department until yesterday. We had all the coverage we needed to get me to testing even if we got busy, and knowing what the busiest time of the store is, he sent two people home so that I would have to go onto the floor. We got our usual Sunday rush but because now we didn't have coverage we had customers waiting for up to 15 minutes for crickets and fish because their were now only two of us in pet care. Customers were understandably irritated and a couple even walked out of the store! I was so mad, I could barely contain myself, it's one thing to not be able to test because the store got so busy that the associates needed help, but it's another when the manager is sending people home early right before a known rush is coming....

OK, I am done venting, I am off to see the store manager and get his take on the situation.
