I work as a cook at a nursing home. Im the only night cook and there iz supposed to be 2 to alternate nights i have 10 per pay period n the second cook is supposed to have 5 days per pay psriod. Well 3 months ago the other coom quit so those days are open for me n the morning cooks to pick up i work mon-thursday n every other weekend. Im supposed to have 2 weekdays off one wsek n one weekday off the next n so on for the month. I dont complain bc i know we r short for help. But when i need a day off bc kids are sick or no babysitter no one can pick up a few hours so i can be home with my kids till hubby gets home. Im not asking for them to pick up my shift just from 1-3. I work from 1-7. I really dont think its fair to be the only night cook n having one weekday off to get billz paid n make appointments do laundry go grocery shopping All in one day. Plus only one car which hubby has at work. Then i have to call in today bc no sitter n my boss tells me that the morning cook that has off today will work for me but will take my whole shift i only needed fdom 1-3. Hubby gets mad n is like they r going to fire you. Im like doubtful im the only pm cook n they would really be struggleing. I dont call in all the time. Last month i worked all month no call ins no going in late even pickex up most of the days that were open. This is more of a vent than a question.Answer Question
