Just a quick one. Today was supposed to be my day off work, indicated by the staff rota, which most working people plan their lifes around. So, 3.20 this afternoon I receive a phone call from the manager asking me where I am!
Obviously I tell her exactly where I am, sat in front of the TV at home. The manager insists I should be at work but I insist that according to the rota on my phone, I’m not down to work.
She, the manager, checks the rota again and confirms I’m supposed to be on shift 3 until 10.
It turns out that the rota was amended without actually informing the members of staff the changes directly effect!!
So, through no fault of my own, I arrived at work 1 hour and 45 minutes late.
Incompetence springs to mind and it completely effected the plans I had made for the afternoon. It also had an effect on my mood. I was ‘Down in the dumps’ for an hour but I’m ok now.
I’ve actually got time to write this very short rant.
Have a lovely evening.
