Last Week At Work

No this is not my last week at work, I'm going to tell you about this past week at work. 
One word describes it "exhuasting."
It started the Friday night prior. They called me and told me the part time receptionist was in a motorcycle accident. So of course I jumped in and said I'll do what I need to do to make sure she's ok, the company is covered and she has time to recoup. So Saturday I worked 7:30 to 7. I was beat. Had Sunday off. Monday and Tuesday I worked 7:30 to 7. Wednesday 11 to 7, Thursday 12 to 7, and Friday 7:30 to 4. I was wiped out by the end of the week. Working late every night, getting off my normal schedule, and was just out of whack. But I sucked it up and did it.
Now the part that frustrated and pissed me off, was she had the accident Friday night. It was very minor, though I'm sure she was sore. So in my eyes I figured a few days recoup-oration was plenty. Expected her to be back on Wednesday, but nope. Expected her to be there on Thursday, but nope. Friday comes and she didn't want to work, but they pretty much didn't give her a choice since her Dr did not say she couldn't work. So to say I was pissy by the end of the week doesn't begin to feel how I felt. When she did come in Friday, she was all bouncy saying "No I'm fine." Well honey if you were fine, then why were you pretty much forced to coming in to work? 
I'm glad that week is over. I'm glad to be back on my schedule. And if ever she complains because she has to cover for me, she will quickly be reminded of this past week.


  1. Well frankly, I'm freakin exhausted just reading about YOU I'd never make it!

  2. I'm sure you were totally fine with it, until you felt taken advantage of. Not cool!

  3. She was def. milking it. But glad your back to your normal schedule this week.
