For most of my waiting days I have been a part of a small team. In fact sometimes where I have worked I have been the only guy working on the floor so I had to be there no matter what. Other times someone may have called in sick and I was the only other guy that could come in and replace that person on a short notice.
Well yesterday we were getting our windows replaced and workers were everywhere and the place was cold. The phone rings at 2PM and it is work. I let it ring and have a discussion with the wife about going in last night. I think I could make some extra money so I decide to call back I guess it was about 30 minutes later.
They already found someone to cover the shift. No I wasn’t disappointed but I did feel an obligation to call back to see if they still needed someone. I would have come into work.
That is what I like. They found someone else to cover the shift. I guess that is the advantage of having many employees who work part time as opposed to full time. I didn’t mind cause I will be starting tomorrow night on 6 in a row.
What about where you work? When they need someone does the buck stop with you and pretty much you have to go in no matter what or is there enough people on the payroll so that someone who wants to go in will cover the shift , taking the onus off you?
