The first of those things would be weekends. I am just soooo sick of carrying all the weekends…of course with the help of my dear friend Amanda. I hate that I basically have no weekend to enjoy because I work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday…and if it wasn’t me this weekend, it would of course be Amanda. So heaven forbid I request off a weekend day because I know that in doing that, I am basically sealing Amanda’s fate of having to work it (and vice versa)- especially Saturdays!! Ugh. Can Sarah just get her butt moving and promote and train another shift supervisor already???? It is LONG overdue and by the time a new one is even trained, the summer will be over. Woo-frickin-hoo!! I noticed Sarah is taking the entire weekend off next week. Well good for her.
OK I know that sounds bitchy. Sarah is an awesome manager and she works very hard. I know this. We all know this. But we work hard too…and instead of being guilt-tripped into doing even more work, we should be given a break too without it affecting the schedule of other co-workers! I would love to take a weekend off without feeling bad knowing that Amanda will have to work all of it. Ugh ugh ugh. I guess I am just really hormonal right now. I know this. But, at the same time, this is an authentic problem…and one I will certainly bring up tomorrow night at our meeting.
We just NEED a new shift supervisor! Then maybe Amanda and I could have more than just one Saturday off per month or more than two Saturday nights off per month. Then maybe Amanda could go visit Greg more.
I am also annoyed by this new idea to only have one person open. Isn’t there a rule in our books that says no less than two people can be working at a time?? Are we even allowed to only have one person on??
And then there is the stocking issue…I wish my conscience would let me just ignore my obligation to helping out the next shift by leaving early rather than stocking up for the night shift. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. I am sorry I sound so bitchy and ungrateful and unsatisfied and disgruntled and just plain old ugly. Give me a day or two and I will be over it. As usual. Well, time to eat and then I am off to work. I can’t wait.
