As usual work has made poor management decisions so the woman who works the evening shift after me is now retired with no replacement. This, obviously, puts a huge burden on the rest of us.
So for a couple of days we floundered, not knowing what was going on, and with one person working mega hours. She demanded a meeting from the manager today, so a few of us met to discuss possibilities.
Understand that there really isn’t anyone who fully understands the evening position. This is a major stumbling block and why they should have had the position posted months ago! She knew she was leaving for months. And she could have trained and new person! Hello!?
Anyway, as it turns out, I’m going to shift to evenings until the new person can take over. I’m not crazy about it, and I’m sure the pets won’t be either, but I was the most qualified and it would have been more of a hardship for the others.
So I offered to switch….temporarily. The good news is that they interviewed two people today. And I can sleep a little later and maybe they’ll notice I’m a team player. Okay probably not the last one.
Anyway a change for a bit. Quieter at least. I’m not sure I will know what I’m doing, but whatever. I’m a warm body.
