At my work, there are several different locations. i am the boss at my location, but during summer time, my location closes which means i go to work at another site where I am still somewhat in charge but not the head honcho like at my site...
One of the other bosses this summer just got in a lot of trouble for being lazy, etc.
He was late almost daily; sometimes 5 mins and sometimes he'd call and say something came up or an appointment ran late and he would be an hour + late. When he'd finally get to work, he'd start saying he was going to leave early, sometimes leaving me the only one in charge which means I have to stay and close when he was suppose to be the one to close, even after already being there for 8 hours.
Sometimes I'd come in to find out he had changed my schedule to suit his "need" to leave work before we close at 6. I have no problem picking up or switching shifts, but not when you change my shift without permission. I drove all the way out there only to be told to go home and come back when my shift started.
He would follow everyone around talking about Jesus and his youth group. I'm all for freedom of religion, but I am not religious, so it got to be annoying.
Then last week he calls out for the entire 5 day work week saying he had "a stomach ache and bowel issues" and didn't turn in a doctor's note until that Friday.
To put a cherry on top, my supervisors denied my request off for one day that I sent in for approval 2 months ago. Every other worker there has been allowed to take days off and sometimes they'd ask a day before they needed the day off and still were allowed to take the day. But not me! I request off 2 months ahead of time and I still was not allowed to have that day off. I had to cancel my entire plan for that 3 day weekend because I was expected to be at work.
The one day i was late, only by 15 mins, they wrote me up for it... It's completely ridiculous...
Anyway, I definitely know how you feel. It is exhausting to have to pick up anyone's slack in my line of work and yet my supervisors and co workers let everyone else come and go as they please and tell me I cant take time off.
