Called into Work Last Night and Got a Morning Shift Today

Monday, August 05, 2019

Yesterday was supposed to be a day off.

That was my yummy lunch in the EDR yesterday: Jamaican Jerk Chicken and the okra had a hint of lemon..absolutely delicious!

Then later while watching a movie on television with my roomie, my boss sends me a Facebook message and asks me if I could go into work for the night because he drove to Vegas..forgetting that he was going to close. I told him that I would, but he had to wait until after my movie was over. I ended up only working for 5.5 hours. 4-9:30pm..a short shift but its overtime.

This morning starts the new pay period and I clock into work at 8am and get out at 2:30. I will probably end up working longer another day to make up for today's short shift. Its 6:15 now so I need to finish my coffee and get ready to walk down to the EDR for breakfast.

Tomorrow is a scheduled day off again for me...if my boss calls me in, I already told him that I was refusing to cover for his lousy schedule making skills. I don't care if he was nice enough to pick me up almond milk and avocados in Vegas. He needs to learn how to make a schedule that he (and everyone else) can live with. Geez sometimes it feels like I am a mother at work, trying to teach my kids (coworkers) about consequences.

    sounds like your boss needs to take time on making the schedule out and he needs to learn work ethics and take his responsibilities seriously as he expects from the employees.

    food looks delicious. you need a day off. those crazy schedules are tough on a body.
    i worked hours like that in late teens and early 20's. now my body doth protest hours like that.

    Totally agree with you. Goofy schedules like you have to work cause people to get sick due to constant disruption in their circadian rhythms. Your boss needs to spend more time on the schedule and ask people what they prefer to work. Some people like 2 days in row off. Some like split days. Some don't want to work more than 5 days without a day off. Some want straight days or straight nights. Allowing people to work what they prefer, if possible, helps with morale and health. The food looked great!
