ohhhhhhhhhhhh I am fuming guys!!!!!!!!! On my day off they were short and asked me If I could come in for a few hours..I told them that Id call back when my husband got home to see if he could watch our 2 yr old. I also went ahead and told my boss that I was going to take a part time every other w/end job which she didnt like. She got hateful about it and said "well..you will still have to work your days here"....she wasnt willing to work w/ me on my track...ok...fine..whatever..I am the ONLY full time 2nd shift nurse left..the others have quit and she isnt planning on hiring anyone...ok...so..anyhow..my husband and I got in a huge fight about me going in...I was halfway dressed to go on in b/c we really need the money since my check was cut so short this past payday. I was going to go in....do my thing and leave early at like 930pm..no biggie I thought...well he refused to watch the baby so when he got done ranting and yelling at me for it...I called back and told her I couldnt do it this time..now mind you....I am the one who's done all the double shifts give or take a few over the past 3 yrs. ...I am the one who has come in every time except this one time on my DAY OFF.....to help out..I am the one who has come in early for meetings with the doc and totally rearranged my entire day to do it for HER in the past 3 yrs also....I have only missed work 3 x in the past 3 yrs as well. I rarely take a day off much less a vacation. I do most of the work when I am there......well my coworker calls me today and tells me that the boss is "mad as hell" at me for not coming in...and that she had said to my coworkers " I dont know how in the hell she thinks she can do 2 jobs when she cant even get a baby sitter for the one she does have and I will not change her schedule!"....she said this to my coworkers! Behind my back! Umm....I have NEVER called in and told her I didnt have a sitter....I have always been to work when Im supposed to...unlike the majority of the staff that she has! My son was 10 mos old and had RSV.....I still came to work every freakin night....going on 1 to 2 hrs sleep b/c he was up all night every night b/c he couldnt breathe....plus I was taking him to the doctor 2x wk for it and he had 2 ER visits at 2 diff hospitals for difficulty breathing and a fever of 105! Others call in for a freakin toothache or knee pains or foot pain......give me a break here!!!!!!!!!!! I have a right mind to tell her to shove it .....and take on a full time track at the other place that interviewed me...they want me to come full time anyways. I dont think its very smart to be pushing my buttons right now seeing as I am all she has left.....plus...to go bash me like that to my coworkers is of utmost unprofessionalism. The way I see it....She couldve stayed and done some of those meds for them! In order to be a DON ..you have to be an RN....does that not stand for "registered NURSE"???.......If it wasnt for the fact that I have 180 hours of vacation time to use up..Id stick it to her TODAY!
