3 keys on my keyboard dont work so bare w/me.
Yesterday at work there was a problem. Coworker one had a funeral they wanted to attend. They were talkin to my supervisor on and off about it and during the last conversation the coworker told our supervisor they were not going. My Saturday hours are from 11a-3p, as I was on my way to work annd coworker one called me asking if I would mind staying till 7 so they could go to a funeral. I told her I didnt mind but to call our supervisor to see what she thought about it. See, my supervisor just had a talk with me this past Tursday about how se wanted me to only work the hours assined to me because she was tired of the other staff askin me to alter my schedule to fit their needs. My coworker says that shed call and see what the supervisor says. I get to work and coworker 1 says she couldnt get up with the supervisor, tells me about te conversation they had that morning and about how her mind was messin with her and the decision not to o. Coworker 1 tried 2 additional times to call the supervisor then left.
Since this was an alter in my hours I called the supervisor myself and like coworker 1, didnt get trough, so I did the next best thing, called te manager. I told her what the situation was and asked her if se wanted me to leave at my scheduled time or stay until coworker 1s shift ended at 7. Since the manager wasnt aware of the talk coworker 1 ad w/supervisor she didnt want to make a decision w/out speakin w/supervisor. Se stated she would call me back. Cool.
Now before all this, coworker 2 tells me that we were going to take w and x to te park. I tell her that in the talk I had with supervisor Thursday, that we are not supposed to leave a staff member at the residence with 2 people that use weelcairs (y and z). To that coworker 2 puts her hands on her hips and says if she has to bring y or z then she was not going anywere. Ummmm wow! Then she goes on about the extra effort it takes to get y or z into the van and this that and the other. So I offered to deal with y or z myself and she wouldnt have to worry about anything. She said she would think about it, then decided that we were not going. Now at this point I could have taken (w or x) and (y or z) to the park, but w or x ave conditions that requires someone to watch them at all times when out in public.
Coworker 2 then says, if ws mom calls and asks for me tell her Im in te bathroom and that w went to the pool. I said ok.
Time passes and our supervisor calls. She repeats that the last time she spoke with coworker 1 coworker 1 said she was not going. Asked me questions like what time she leave, did she say she was comin back, etc...all to which I answered honestly. Then she asked me if we took te crew out. I told her coworker 2 and w been to te pool (lie). She asked if I was there alone wit 2 people that used weelcairs. I knew what she was tryin to ask me, but I answered the exact question she asked and said that coworker 2 was currently there with me. I guess she cauht my drift because the subject went back to coworker 1. She stated that shed been tryin to et up with her but she would not answer te phone. She asked me to tell coworker 1 to give her a call if she came back to work. I said okay and that was that.
I put the phone back on the base and here comes coworker 2 bitchin about how the supervisor was the last person I was supposed to tell she took w out one on one, how I dont have to be by the book and other stuff. I tuned her out and was thinking in my head that she was the one who said to say w went to the pool. I wasnt going to say I went anywere with anybody and I didnt. I made te choice right then that I wasnt lying for nobody else. Shes still talkin and the phone rings. It is ws mom. She asked for coworker 2. I said hold on and ave coworker 2 the phone. She asks me who it was and I tell her. her eyes bug out and she gives me this oh shit look. I wasnt oin to lie and say she was in the bathroom and I wasnt goin to lie to ws mom about w going to the pool. If coworker 2 dont like talking to ws mom then she is old enough to tell her so or find a way to cut the convo short. After they talk I guess she wasnt happy with me so se went to hang out in ws room while I chilled in my favorite recliner flippin channels for a bit.
Time passes and to my surprise coworker one comes back in. I relay the message from our supervisor and ask about how te service was. Se replied but I dont know if she was unappy with me or unhappy she had to come back cuz there was ugly all up in her voice. At that point I didnt care enough to ask, so I clock out, say my goodbyes and left.
I am the youngest and newest person to join the staff. I dont have close bonds or friendships with nobody there. Up until yesterday I never lied for a coworker and didnt like the feeling I got when I did it yesterday. No, everything does not have to be by the book, but when someone wants me to alter my hours expecially after the talk me and the supervisor had, best believe I am going to call a higer up and get their permission. When they look over the hours before our next pay period I dont want to get a call asking why I worked from such and such to such and such instead of the ours they told me to work. Or them asking me about an outing that I never went on. It sounds selfish, but I am looking out for me. I will not be held accountable for someone elses actions. Sorry!
