I don't even want to write this post.
I'm tired off it all and just want to put it out of my mind,
but since I shared before and got such great advice
I feel like I owe you all an update.
The girl who works for me in boarding
and who refused to work weekends and said she'd quit without notice if I put her on weekends?
Well, now she no longer wants to work Thursday days either.
My only day off.
Nor Friday nights.
She just wants Monday through Wednesday evenings hours.
At first I told her that I'd rather work 60 hours a week than put up with her crap.
Yep, that's exactly how I said it.
I told her that by saying she wants to work just 3 days, she's saying that she wants to quit.
I told her that it doesn't work for me
and then I said I had to leave before I said more angry things.
I went home and texted Doc's step-daughter to see if she can work some hours
and she has to get back to me.
Then I text the vet who is HR and let her know what was going on.
She said we would talk the next day because tornado sirens were going off in her area.
So, there was a Tornado!
It didn't actually hit her area but instead touched down in another town,
where my step-mom lives!
It destroyed some homes
and did major damage to most of the houses out in that little town.
It's very rural and the houses on either side of my step-mom had a lot of damage
but her house wasn't touched except for a tree.
Her insurance agent called the next day and said he had watched the storm over the Net and it went right over her house.
He had been waiting for a call, for a claim and was shocked that they were untouched.
Talk about lucky!
Their power went out but they have a generator.
No sirens went off in their little town. No warning but luckily people headed for their basements
when the sky turned ugly.
Here, it rained and then everything turned kinda yellow
I didn't edit these photos at all -
and the sky got very light
and it was 9 at night!
Then it was over.
Across the river, where I work, they said it didn't even rain.
Weather is weird.
But back to my work crap.
Right now I have her working those 3 evenings shifts
that are three hours long,
while I'm working 7.
Yes, SEVEN days a week.
although some days it's only for 5 hours....
but Fridays are double shifts.
If I didn't keep her on those nights, I'd be doing double shifts on those days too.
So until I can find someone else....
Although some of the techs have stepped up to cover afternoon hours so that I'm not there all day.
The girl says she's just burnt out and needs a break.
I didn't bother to say she just works part-time and just came off a 10 day vacation last month.
She forgets that I'm here all day long and I'm more than 2 times her age
and that I do the majority of cleaning etc. during the day
and she just has a few messes and feeding to do in the evening....
She told my niece that if I fire her, she will get unemployment.
I doubt that she could but I won't fire her,
when I find someone else, I will put her back on weekends
and Friday nights.
That should do it.
If not, then I will fire her.
Doc left for his 2 week European trip today.
I'm taking care of his 2 dogs and 2 cats.
I started to tell him about the latest with this girl
and apparently the other vet, the HR vet had filled him in
and all he said was "Just take care of it"
I guess he just wants to leave and not be bothered.
I did mention to him that he might be surprised to see my time card when he returns.
Anyway, blah, blah, blah.
I'm tired of thinking about it
and talking about it.
I'll just do it and not think.
What a stupid lazy girl.
I was told by some of the co-workers to put a job listing on Facebook,
(I had done that before and only got the one response from the unenthusiastic girl)
But I put it up again and I asked local people to share it so that it would reach as many people as possible.
So far the only person to "Like" the post is this stupid girl that doesn't want to work.
I feel like she "Liked" it just to make a point.
I was also told to list the job opening on the local Employ Me site.
I will have the Office Manager do that but I noticed that our big rival boarding/vet clinic competition
has a job listing for the exact same job, posted right now too.
Someone else said to list it on Craigslist.
I hadn't thought about that.
I Googled it and the brand new fancy pet boarding kennel that has "4 locations",
has a job posting on it already.
Everyone is searching for Help, I guess.
I'm trying to be positive
and I'm focusing on another perfect person to walk in and apply.
The new girl is doing Great and LOVES the job
but she's a full-time groomer and only wanted a couple of days a week.
So that's the situation.
I have some many Art plans
and I haven't shared this before but my name is going to come up in the next couple of months
for booth space.
I've been on a waiting list since last August.
Not the place downtown but the BIG place with all the traffic.
I've got to carve out Art time
and yard, house, laundry, play with my own pets time.
Oh and sleep.
So that's how it currently sits.
This stupid girl is working tomorrow.
My last full day off for a while.
I plan to go get my hair cut.
(WARNING: I'm posting photos of myself.
I hate my photos, they don't look like me
Some stranger jumps in front of the camera.)
OK... I do this full circle thing with my head.
I cut it short and make it blonder
and I'm happy with it
and then one day I stop getting it cut
and I let it grow.
It grows and grows
and then I straighten it into a long smooth style
and then one day humidity moves in
and I stop straightening it
and turns into this huge curly mass
(this is actually a smoother day)
and then I gather it up
and put it into a wild ponytail for a while.
Then I need a change and suddenly hate my hair
I cut it all off.
Do you do that?
Go back and forth with hair styles?
Anyway, that's the update but
