I’m exhausted… physically & mentally. I’m beat. My life lately has been work, work, work. I haven’t actually seen The Man, the love of my life, the father of my children in over 2 days. Why? Our shifts have been exactly the opposite of each other’s. Now it’s 4 am and I’m next to The Man and he’s sleeping. I’ve got no one to vent to about all my work woes.
My work is full of fuck ups. Seriously. Big Boss changed the schedule mid-week and didn’t notify the appropriate people. I was supposed to get out early tonight because I’m already on over time… but because of this critical mistake an employee who was suddenly made aware that she was late for her shift because it was changed AFTER the fact up and quit on us. It sucks but I really can’t blame her. It’s a really chaotic work environment.
Have you ever had to go to bat for some one even though you know they are wrong? I was in that tough spot tonight. My friend got into a heated argument with a customer… He wasn’t really trying to resolve what ever the heck happened… but I know the customer threatened to call the police (which would have gotten her no where, honestly). Now I’m in the position of what the fuck do I do if Big Boss asks me what the he’ll happened? Tensions wouldn’t be so high if we had decent staffing… and Big Boss is slacking on new hires.
Even in my journal I can’t escape work!!! Eek!!! I really, really wanted to quit tonight. Just be done with it. Done with the madness. I think it’d be better just to look for a new job first though. Got to stay responsible.
Suppose that’s it for tonight. Tomorrow I’m supposed to work 5 – 2. I’m hoping the fact that I’m already over in hours means that I’ll get sent home early. Doubtful. Wish me luck.
