Since Wednesday our phone keeps ringing and ringing and ringing!
Chris is off work this week and his coworker keeps calling. This guy must have called from work or from his cell phone at least 20 times. Did he leave a message each time? No. He finally left a message earlier today asking Chris to call him back regarding the work schedule for next week.
This guy is always calling in sick or trying to make deals with Chris to trade shifts. Actually he even managed to talk my husband into changing his permanent schedule! My husband, when he started in the OR attendant job last December was supposed to work Tuesday to Friday. Now ever since this guy got hired they’ve alternated the schedule so sometimes Chris has a Monday off and on alternate weeks he’s got a Tuesday off.
This guy has even called our home at 5 in the morning to tell Chris he’s sick and that he’ll have to do his shift never bothering to call in sick at work. Chris even has more seniority. It’s just nuts what Chris has let this guy get away. Yes it’s Chris’ fault. There’s no doubt about that.
So now we’ve got this guy ruining Chris’ holiday by calling all the time. If he wants something why doesn’t he just leave a proper message with his request?
Chris and I are purposely not answering his calls ’cause we figure that it’s either some schedule switch or that he might even have wanted to Chris to work on one of his holiday days. No, the guy can think we aren’t home and haven’t been home all week.
This is the problem with being too nice.
We often go out of our way to do something nice for people. Sometimes putting ourselves out while trying to make someone happy and you know what? People rarely appreciate it. It’s like a ticket for taking advantage of us in the future when ever they want something else.
It’s our own fault, but I’d rather be kind to others than nasty.
