Bollocks.

Today hasn’t been the greatest of days. Last night, I went to bed feeling sick to my stomach and waking up to feeling worse. I tried to sleep it off and for the most part, I did, but half the day went by in the process.

Later, I went to Starbucks to work out a glitch in my schedule. Presently, I am supposed to work from 9:15pm to 2:30am on Wednesday night to set up the holiday decorations only to return Thursday morning at 6:45am and work an eight hour shift. It’s not my fault the schedule was set up that way, but the management’s. However, I’m still stuck with the responsibility of fixing it, which I don’t understand. I went to our store manager and basically asked him what to do because it was important to me that I don’t lose hours. He replied sarcastically, “So you want your cake and to eat it too?” To which I answered seriously, “Yes, I do. I want to get fat on cake.” We looked at the schedule together and he found three people I could switch with, however all of which were working shorter shifts, so no matter what, I’d be losing hours and still, he made it my task to call these people to find out if they’re willing or capable of switching. By that point, I was so annoyed with his lack of concern for me that I said, “Forget it. I’ll just stay up all night. I go to sleep after class on Wednesday, sleep until 9:00, come in and then just stay up until I have to come in at 6:45…” My boss hardly listened, just continued to gaze at the schedule, naming off people I could switch with while taking a hit in accumulated hours. Eventually, something else got his attention, I grabbed my planner and headed for the front door. My boss called after to me, “So yeah, Carly. Are you gonna switch or are you just going to stay up all night?” I turned and said, “Whatever, I’ll figure it out,” and just kept walking. I was so angry.

And now I’m home. Trying to figure what I’m supposed to do. If I should just stay up or actually call one of these people and ask them to switch their schedules with me. It’s such a headache. And I really thought I’d get more priority, considering it’s been a year now since I started working for this company.

I just feel completely ignored.
