Why oh why does Christmas fall in the middle of the week?
So,,trying to feel the waters out for NYC at work today, I want to get reservations made and tickets bought ASAP. Keep in mind I am new here just over 2 months so I have no seniority to speak of. Anyhow, my dream would be to leave on the am on the 23rd and drive to NYC, however, we are open the 23rd and the 24th until noon, and we have to have 2 staff here to man the centre. Dosen’t mean I will have to be, there are other staff who might do it, but I know that no one will want to, I am just crossing my fingers and hoping I don’t have to work until noon on Christmas eve. Believe me the last thing I want to be doing on Evan’s death-versary is working. People just don’t seem to get it, I told them all what happened, but seniority and/or people with living children that are out of school/daycare for the holiday get first dibs. Whatever, sorry my child died so I don’t get to spend this Christmas with him thus making me a priority group.
Whatever, if I have to I have to, I will deal and I will not let this ruin my NYC trip. If we have to arrive on the 25th then so be it, we can do a broadway show on the 26th and stay until the 28th, cause those people who have to work the 23/24th won’t have to work the 29th/30th I have been told. It still sucks.
Let’s just hope for the best, I will work it out one way or another. I have made up my mind and when I do-look out, I am out to get it. Let’s hope this works for a child too, this will and drive.
*** Decided to go back and make this a friends only post to protect, oh you know, my job, in case it’s viewed as me bad mouthing co-workers or whatever, I love my job afterall.
