I'm really getting pissed off at ex's boss!

So apparently now that school is back in session ex is getting the shitty hours. Usually has to work until 8 or 9 or even go in & work 6pm to close (which is 3 am). Forgot to mention he works at Wendy's in a local hospital. Not helpful for him or the kids because by the time he gets off work & home they are in bed. 

Not only that but the dates of DS's home soccer games ex has requested to work 7-5 or be off (because games start at 7 & being off at 5 would give him time to wrap things up at work, go home & change, & then get to the game. 

Biggest thing that pisses me off- ex specifically requested Oct 10th off for DS's very last soccer game of his senior year. It's a big deal because "they" usually do a special recognition between the JV & Varisty games to recognize the senior players. Parents escort their son onto the field & the announcer does a run down of the players name, escorted by, been playing soccer for xx amount of years.... you get the picture. Well DS really wants ex to be there & to escort him onto the field with me. This is really a big deal because ex is NOT DS's bio-dad & DS rarely sees him since they are both so busy. 

Hopefully ex can get someone to switch him days off or trade him hours that day so he can make it to the game.

Why is this the bosses fault?

He does the scheduling! Ex hadd me text him the dates of DS's game so he could ask to open those days (there are 5 other managers below ex & ex has seniority over them). The boss scheduled him late shifts instead.

If other people had already put in for things that may have something to do with it.

Okay I get you had the list of dates but now I see the problem. Who has their ex wife ask for his days off. Aren't you tired of babysitting a grown man. He can ask for his own time off

I'm not the one giving his boss his requests. He is asking me what days our DS has games so he can request them. I don't contact his boss at all. Hell I rarely talk to my ex!

What?? She texted the dates to her EX, for her ex to request the dates off. Where are you getting that she texted the boss asking for his days off?

 lets face it maybe those 5 other people asked for the same days off?  maybe your ex is just whimpy in his requests. and he's not real proactive in trying to secure those days.

That would be frustrating.

 I read the post as this  He does the scheduling! Ex hadd me text him the dates  So it read to me as she texted the boss.  I still think the op is frustrated witht eh wrong person.  Her ex is responsible for his own schedual and if he has senority and still gets crap shifts or little perks for being their longest, then he's probley not the best. 

On a different note did you use to be sweet britt?
