Good morning everyboomie. welcome


Ok my early work day has been permanently altered to a 10:00 to 7:00 day. thumbsdown


Yesterday when I got up (at 3:30) I ate my breakfast and sat down to get on line for a few minutes. I looked at my phone and saw I had a message from my manager. She ask, "Did you see you had a schedule change? You work 10 to 7 Wed & Thur." WHAT??? shocked


Do you think I went back to bed at that point? Nooooo shame


I went to work at 5:00, as originally scheduled.


Today is a different story though. I'll go in at 10:00.


One of these days they will (maybe) understand that when they change a person's schedule on their day off, they cannot rely on a phone text to convey that change....................think....effectively. rotfl


Something else they (may) learn in time is that, if they were more effective at hiring and filling open positions then the need would not arise to have to text someone on their day off and change their schedule.


Even simpler than that, if the scheduler, who does scheduling two weeks in advance, did not schedule the 'only person' who will work in a department all day long, to come in from 5 to 2, then the need to change that person's schedule at the last moment, on their day off, to 10 to 7 would not arise. slapforehead


Pretty smart huh?


You should hear my theory on quantum physics, and the evolution of space and time. idea


Have a happy day everyone.

good morning everyone. yep still kicking around here. have been able to spend the last few days out side since sunday , the weather has been cool enough for me to sit out side. had 4 of the grandkids sunday for a couple of hours boy that sure wore me out. one mowed for her grandpa and the other 3 we played with bubbles. i have enjoyed the cooler weather but i think the heat is heading back this way soon. hubby's chickens are getting more spoiled day by day. somuch fun to see him catch grasshoppers for them then go into the pen and sit there and give them to them, we are anxiously waiting for the day we find out first egg. its been years since we raised chickens, so we are like little kids at christmas with them. not much on the agenda today since i am sorta of paying for my antics outside , i know better than to be outside when someone is mowing. hope everyone has a great day
