An inconveinent truth

So apparently I can NOT turn down a shift when offered to me by my current employer. I received a call from my staffing chick, asking if I would pick up a shift today. So no I can't, I don't have a car today, as I let the girl take it to school. So needless to say I can not cover a 10 am to 6 pm shift. So, she says can you do tomorrow? I say no I had other plans and really can't and don't want to. I picked up extra shifts at my other job and well I am tired. So she huff's and whatevers and hangs up. Mind you I actually was considering it and going to call back. But I needed a minute to think about it.

So needless to say I get a call back from the HR person, with her haughty attitude pretty much ripping me a new one. Demanding this, bitching about that. So I am like, "Well whatever, I guess if I have to I have to." in my equally haughty attitude. So I pick up tomorrow's shift. Whatever.

But mind you... I AM NOT the one who changed my hours this week to begin with. I graciously agreed that I would work a different set of hours this week so they could cover another parents. Is it my problem that I agreed to accept the extra day off because the staffing chick did NOT want to call a bunch of people and rearrange things, because the other case settled early? Is it my bad that the Nurse on the case I work 2 days a week got sick and I have 8 hours of "available" time because the scheduler didn't want to do her job?

Fuck them and fuck this shit! Someones true colors come out with their attitude and I am not the type of person who will put up with it. Apparently as flexible as I am they are NOT. Onesided bullshit.

Live and learn. Its the nature of the beast that is Healthcare.


  1. Girl you have my total empathy! It's amazing how little they care. If you're on call then you should have the option to say no gracefully. Dumbasses, aren't they?

  2. The thing that gets me is that I was NOT on call and the first thing they said was, " You are on your 90 day probationary" Like I did something wrong. I did not take the day off, I was scheduled that way!

  3. Now you know not to pick up the phone next time you get a call from them on your day off. :p

    Sorry they were bitches. That is unfair.

  4. Man that sucks, I hope it gets better for you Christine!
