Too Lazy To Come Up With A Reason

| Working | March 27, 2017

(It’s close to the end of my shift and a coworker and I are cleaning one of the bread making machines. I’m off tomorrow and looking forward to it. We are allowed to trade days off of switch shifts on occasion with manager approval.)

Coworker: “What days are you off?”

Me: “Tomorrow and Wednesday. Why?”

Coworker: “What time do you come in Thursday?”

Me: “12. What’s up?”

Coworker: “I’m off Wednesday and Thursday. Do you want to trade Tuesday to be off Thursday?”

Me: *thinking about it*

(I don’t really want to but if something important came up and she needed the day off then I was willing to do it.)

Me: “I guess…”

Coworker: “If you don’t want to then it’s fine. I just wanted tomorrow off. I feel like being lazy.”

Me: “So you’re asking me to delay my weekend just because you want to start yours early?”

Coworker: “Pretty much.”

Me: “In that case, no. If it was something important, I would have said yes.”

(At least she was honest!)
