Wed-Locked To The Schedule

| Working | July 24, 2013

(Today is my co-worker’s wedding day. I have just finished my shift and practically have my foot out the door when my manager stops me, looking panicked.)

Manager: “Can you stay another four hours?”

Me: “What? Why?”

Manager: “[Coworker] has drunk some wine, and can’t come in.”

Me: “Isn’t it her wedding day today?”

Manager: “Yes, that’s why she’s been drinking.”

Me: “And you scheduled her in to work today?”

Manager: “Yes.”

Me: “Seriously?”

Manager: “Yes.”

Me: “And you didn’t think that would be a problem?”

Manager: “No.”

(I stay to cover my coworkers shift in complete shock at my manager’s poor planning.)
