Got fussed at like I was a brainless five-year-old today the moment I came in to drop off my direct deposit form over the information my bank provided me with and the fact that someone forgot I was taking vacation time when planning the schedule. I'll be actively looking for another job next week. I've had it.

*growls* That's one of my pet peeves usually. Start looking and don't look back! *shakes fist at your manager/boss/employee who made the schedule*

I'm going to sit down and start looking seriously around mid-week since I just want to rest and recharge for the home-stretch this weekend. I'm actually working the 4th, but hey.

Oh same here although I expect we'll probably have a quarter of the people than yesterday. I haven't been this worn out from work in a while... I love it! (only because I enjoy my job?)

Oh, we'll get killed. XD Trust me. Every time someone guesses that we'll be dead on any holiday other than Easter, we have to get out the Arc. I SO hate that we're open on national holidays. Well, we're open for all of them except Christmas Day.

I used to be that way too (the science Museum I used t0 work at six years ago was open all of them but thanksgiving day and Christmas day but it was all hands on deck every holiday the days before and after EVERY single one of them... although if it was sunny most of the time we were sighing a sigh of relief.)

We weren't that bad (alth0ugh at the end of the day I counted our numbers and found out we had over 120 people... almost as many as yesterday and also almost as many people as usually visit in a MONTH). Something tells me that if it had rained this weekend we would have been ten times as bad though (from my experience rain drives the crowds to the museums on holidays).

Hope your fourth wasn't so crazy that you couldn't take a moment to take a deep breath.

Oh, I know how freaking annoying that is! My boss does this so much one of the supervisors just flat-out asked him why he even had a vacation roster in the first place.

*hugs* Good luck on the new-job search.

I wish I had my 'Rose BAMF' icon to go with yours. It truly is one of the most annoying things in the world. Especially since that was Halloween week and EVERYONE, for the first year ever, has decided that they want it off. Looks like I'm rescheduling it for the week before.

Thanks! Here's hoping it works.

This one? We should get the Doctor to send her over :P

Been there, done that - I had a supervisor who once not only 'forgot' I was leaving on vacation at the end of a Friday shift, but gave THAT shift to someone else without telling me. His excuse 'Well, when you covered for this guy last week, we all thought you'd changed your availability.' (My availability was Monday-Friday, 6AM to 4PM.) I had covered a Sunday shift for my weekend person so the poor boy could go to HIS OWN WEDDING. I had told my supervisor that it was a one-off, never-to-be-repeated event. He didn't get it.

He still didn't get it when I walked out.

He finally got it when HIS supervisor asked him what the hell HE did that I walked out on him.

Sometimes the best voting is the one done with the feet.

Good for you! And I totally plan to leave that place without looking back once I can. They'll miss me. They have no clue how much. *evil smile*

Ugh. Good on you, hon. You deserve better than the likes of them. *hugs*

*snugs you* I'm so glad that you think so. I really can't wait to see the looks on their faces when I finally decide where to go next. Imma take a Polaroid. :D
