The policy at our hospital is you must work 2 summer & 2 winter holidays. Fine...no big deal.
Well I work on the same floor as a friend of mine, but we work different shifts. The sign-up sheets for the summer holidays went up last week, so I signed up...for all 3 holidays by choice. I figured that I don't have any plans anyway, might as well get time & a half to work. Plus the holiday shifts are days during the week that I normally work anyway.
Well the so-called friend ripped me a new one the other day because she wanted to know where did I get off signing for all 3 holidays. And I was not hired for a set schedule, that it's my choice what days during the week I work (we self-schedule). Excuse me, but who died and left her boss???
She's not our clinical leader, all though at this point I'm thinking she wishes she was.
First of all, she works days and I work nights. We don't have as many people who work nights as opposed to days. And what I work has no effect on her...or so I thought.
She's having a party 7/3 that I'm "supposed" to go to. I didn't go last year because I don't feel like going to a party with people I hardly know and watch them all get smashed out of the gourds. I'm sorry, but it's not my idea of fun.
And you guessed it...I'm not going this year either.
And what does it matter to her anyway what holidays I work??? I'm not married to her!
Ugh! Ok...I feel better now.
