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.
