i need help figuring out a problem. i was supposed to get this weekend off. this is my managers last week here and its her b-day weekend so she has me working. ( i put off on calender, she did not) i have joint custody with my ex. i assumed i would get this weekend off so i made plans and did not set up childcare. we have a family event to go to. well today i find out i'm working all weekend. i have two options now. pick up my kids in the morning and bring my kids to work with me till midnight. plans completely ruined or switch shift and pick kids up at 4 pm tomarrow- making our plans completely ruined and get held in contempt of court by ex for not picking them up till 4 i'm backed into a corner here. fuuuck.. any ideas?

Oh. No friends can help? Did you talk to your ex and see if he would mind watching them?

Uh, get off of the internet and think for yourself? I'm not trying to be a bitch, but seriously. You're an adult. Get up and do something. Make some phone calls. Talk to your boss, her boss and/or other employees. The only way to get results is by taking action.
