I am SO ANNOYED!!!!!

Saturday, October 09, 2010

I really don't care much for my job working in a group home, but am grateful to be working. Have skills that I could use elsewhere, but afraid to switch jobs with things the way they are right now.
We have to take an on-call weekend several times a year, due to the fact that our employer is to cheap to use any of the nursing services that other places do. I signed up for the one weekend out of three that I could do it. We only got our choices late last week, and the first weekend is October 29-30, so we really didn't have much notice, even though we have been after our manager for the dates for several months already. When I got to work last night, the second shift girl pointed out that he had switched my weekend on call, to October 29-30 which I cannot do. I have had plans to side my house that weekend since March. Also can't do Thanksgiving weekend because I will be in Kentucky. Planned as well since March. The weekend that I signed for November 11-13, he gave to a girl who has been working with us for only 2 months. Reason?? She has plans the other weekends!!! I have been there over 2 YEARS, and this is what I get for it. This jerk pushes me around with stuff like this all the time, even though my reviews are alway excellent, and he has no complaints about me. This time I will not be pushed around and he will just have to FREAKING DEAL WITH IT!!!!!
I feel better now. Thank you!

    It is good to stand up for one's self. However, when doing so, do it without emotion. Have a level-headed discussion (or email if you do not want one-on-one confrontation). good luck!

    You go girl. Stand up for yourself. Two years should mean something. I am proud of you.
