i cannot wait to get out of this place right now... work is just fucking me over left and right. i am just PRAYING that this interview goes well on monday and i can give them my two-weeks notice.

so, two months ago, i put up two signs (one in the front office, one in the back office) about how i will be out of town on december 2nd, and i would appreciate it if i could SWITCH shifts with someone. switch is the key word here. i was not calling off or requesting off, just simply asking my fellow co-workers if they would let me work one of their shifts in return for them working mine on december 2nd. NOT THAT COMPLICATED! so like, 3 days later i get a passive-aggressive text from my manager saying "we are not allowing people to request off anymore, if you need a day off, find someone to work your shift." uhhhh, ok? is that not what my fucking NOTE SAID?! and before you go thinking "your note wasn't clear." let me just type exactly what the note said here:

"FRONT DESK: would anyone like to trade their shift (overnight or not) for my overnight shift on wednesday, december 2nd? thanks! (insert phone number) call day or night!"

like, fuck you! that note was clear as day. i put that up TWO MONTHS AGO. and guess what i saw on the schedule today? rachel: 7am - 3pm REQ OFF. OH REALLY? WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO REQUEST OFF ANYMORE?! how come rachel gets to request off? that's not even the huge issue here.

there is a girl that works here who's mom works in the sales office. every. single. weekend. there is always some kind of outlandish story for why she can't come in. it's gotten to the point where i literally rely on her to call off so i can cover her shift and get an extra day. two weekends ago, she called off because she burnt off part of her ponytail on accident and needed to go get her hair cut. she called me at 11am and he shift wasn't until 3pm. GO GET YOUR HAIR CUT AND GET TO WORK.

i, on the otherhand, have called off two times since i have been working here. one of the times, i was in the hospital pretty much on my deathbed. i have been late ONCE and that's it. i do everything for this company but they just screw me over constantly.

so here is my main rant. this is the reason i want to get up and quit because this is the 3rd time they've done something like this. just to start, i am not low on the totem pole. i've been working here for a year (with a little break) and two people were hired after me. i should get some say in my schedule. also, i am the ONLY front desk agent at this hotel that goes to school (college.)

so, two weeks ago, my manager offers me my 3pm - 11pm shifts back on saturdays and sundays (instead of my usual 7am - 3pm shifts) and i was SO excited because i am over waking up at 6am on the weekends. i glady accepted but he told me that there was a catch. the catch was that i would only get those shifts back if i worked an extra overnight shift during the week (preferably two nights in a row.) this kinda pissed me off because it's difficult enough working even one overnight shift and going to school, however, i accepted because i REALLY want to work the 3-11 shift again and i would get an extra day added to my work week. we both were happy about the situation.

i come to work yesterday and see that i am working my extra over night shift on thursday... then i look over to the weekend schedule and guess what i see? i am still working 7am - 3pm on sunday AND ON TOP OF THAT, they took away my saturday shift. so not only am i now working 2 overnights in a row, but they took away my fucking saturday so i'm STILL only working 3 days a fucking week. that completely defeated the purpose of the change. oh, and my new thursday overnight is conveniently on THANKSGIVING! FUCK YOU!!!! YOU FUCKING TRICKED ME YOU STUPID FUCKING FUCKS!!!!! ahhhhhhhh!
