evil bank lady

  1. I have been off placement, work and uni since saturday... I sound like I am trying to cough my lungs up,(<-blatent sympathy plea!) but earlier the bank rang and I answered the phone and ended up coughing after I had said hello, and then when I said no I didn't want to work a night tonight, the woman (aka eveil bank lady) got snotty with me!

    I didn't have a shift booked,so I didn't ring in sick,but I sound terrible... my mum doesn't recognise my voice at the moment... and this woman wanted me to go into work. Which I don't think would have been responsible or physically possible, I don't think I could drive to work and I would do more harm than good if I got there!

    Then I was told they might not be any shifts for me next week! Which i am going to leave to the last minute to book, to see if I am well, but I need to work...

    Sorry for ranting, I just needed to vent, and for once I really can't ring anyone up and vent down the phone!!

    Thanks for reading this waste of bandwidth.

    I think that woman is unethical trying to get you to work when you are sick. Best to you too, hty/feel better soon.

    Hope you feel better!

    There will probably be plenty of work next week. A little threat or intimidation there to try to get you to work anyway?

    I try to use my caller ID and answering machine to screen my calls and try not to speak with them in person unless I want to. Saves me a lot of aggravation.

    Darn turkeys!

    Worry not, Whisper. It sounds like standard practice ( well, perhaps not pressuring you to work when you are obviously sick! ) but the implication that you won't be called to work next week is a gesture towards waiting until you are completely fit before asking you to work again. If you call them up, they'll bite your hand off they're so keen!/desperate for staff!

    Brain surgeons these folks are NOT, but a little common sense doesn't seem too much to ask!

    I hope you feel better soon!!

    Whisper - lots of hot lemon juice with vodka - that way at least if it does not cure the cold you won't be worrying about it anymore. ((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))

    Just looking back on this page............

    Whether you work a bank shift or not, for whatever reason, it is YOUR business. If you are ill, it is nothing to do with the snotty horrible woman. I never work extra's, I have enough of the place as it is.
    I know it's weeks ago since you posted this, but hope u r better!
