I am 50 yr old, just quit driving school bus after 10 years and took a job doing what I love - receptionist in Dr. Office. I was hired to work in one office. However, now that I've started, they occasionally send me to other offices to fill in when others are out. I don't like it, but I don't complain because I'm new. This costs me gas, but they don't take me off the clock when I'm traveling from the home office to the others. I want to carpool with a co-worker who lives right by me, but we are both new and afraid they'll get mad if we can't go to another location when they ask (which is always on spur of the moment). They don't pay us for gas and I only make $11/hour. Not much I know, but I accepted the pay because I was lucky to get the job (with so little experience). Question is: do I rock the boat and carpool and take the chance on making the boss mad when I am unable to help out at other locations?
