I work at a hotel, and we have two wonderful overnight employees.

Well, lately one of them hasn't been so wonderful.

This is the second time within a two month period that she has called me to say that she cannot come in. Well, I can't ask anyone else to come in, as the other girls I work with have high school/college classes in the morning. So guess who's doing the overnight tonight?


Granted, she sounded really sick. Or really drunk. Either way, she was in no condition to come to work. I'm just bummed out because I'll be here until 7AM and I have parent/teacher conferences at 7:30. I was supposed to work 8AM-3PM tomorrow, but my boss will be here, and she'll be cool with me going home and going to sleep. :-D


I'm not really mad... just kind of sleepy. I guess I can just hang out and read people's journals. Overnight is really a breeze, especially during the week when the laundry is minimal and people haven't messed the place up too badly and nobody's used the pool. At least I'll be able to get some homework done!

That sucks and I can totally relate. I worked for a hotel for 7 years before I became a SAHM!! 4 of those years were night audit/overnight and the other supervisor, so I know both sides!! Just be thankful you don't have to work the double! I had to do that many a night...cover an over night shift and work my scheduled 8am to 4pm shift!!! It really sucked!

So I guess what I'm saying is...it could be worse!!!
