My grandfather died unexpectedly Thursday. My grandmother was out of town, and I was notified at work. I left work to go find my grandmother and tend to all the funeral things for her, as I knew she would be too freaked out to do so. (And I was right, all she said was "You decide, Sissy.")
I called my boss to tell her I was leaving work Thursday. Called her again Friday to call in for today Monday, since the funeral was today. Called again Friday afternoon to make sure they got the message off of voicemail.
THE VERY SAME staffing person I talked to every time called me on my cell phone today asking me to come to work this afternoon???!!
Hello, wouldn't you think "off for funeral leave" by my name would give her a clue? It was bad enough they are too cheap to send a flower or even a freakin' card, but to call me to work??????
I had left my purse on a chair in the funeral home, and my sister answered my ringing phone and told them our grandfather's funeral was in half an hour and not to expect me to work today AT ALL!!!!!!!!
I am ready to go wait tables and tell them to kiss my foot!!!!!!
