Better Luck Next Year… Maybe

I hate to admit this, but I’m thinking about doing the adult thing and skipping Brewers On Deck this year. There are numerous reasons, such as Scamper, a possible lack of funds, and most importantly, the fact that I’ve been scheduled to work that day. Granted, I put in for the day two months in advance, but that doesn’t mean someone else didn’t do the same. So I guess I’ll suck it up and work.

It still sucks, though.

I thought that I had gotten my request in early enough; the scheduling is done three weeks in advance, so I figured two months leeway was enough time. Not only that, but I was planning on that day as my floating MLK Jr holiday, which we’re supposed to take in January. So I have no idea when I’ll get it.

Yes, I’m frustrated. Can’t you tell?

Whoever is responsible for the schedule isn’t doing their job. None of us in Member Service have gotten any of our request off forms back; no one has any idea as to whether or not they got a requested day off or not. It’s ridiculous. It shouldn’t be happening. But it is.

Well, there’s always next year. At least I can save up some petty cash until then. Because next year, I plan on going more than a little crazy. For obvious reasons.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
