Me? I smile, nod and sweetly say "Oh,its ok" and on the inside I'm thinking:
" HOW RUDE! You tell me you will be here at 7 a.m. with your child. I get up at 5:30 in the morning when I usually don't get up until 7. My sleep is deprived as it is because I have children of my own that I get up with through the night.But I know you need me, so I gladly get up to be ready for you and your child.
7 a.m. gets here, I unlock my door, look down the street and see no cars. Okay, your a few minutes late, no big deal.7:15,7:30,7:45 roll on by. Your still not here! So I send you a message asking if you had said 7 or did I misunderstand? 2 more hours roll by. You send finally send me a message to tell me oh, I decided not to go in to work today,sorry should have told ya yesturday."
UGH! This irritates me to no end! I just try to picture myself being in their shoes and no matter which way I look at it..I just can't see myself doing that to someone. I would call as soon as I possibly could...especially if I knew the night before that I wasn't going to show up! I mean, come on! I could have slept another hour or so. I'm so tired I have dark circles under my eyes. I care about this family, why can't they care enough about me and mine? I am not a servant. I am a person that cares for your child, I am devoted to making sure I am here for you in a pinch when you need me yet, I get treated like garbage!And it never ceases to amaze me..but this isnt the only family I've worked with that does this and acts so nonchalant about it.
What do you say? What do you do? How do I handle this???
