Awww ABEL.

My work does that to me too...I just lost my only day off this week because I answered a phone call from my boss.

Work sucks.

can't you just say no? it's been my experience that despite what they lead you to believe, bosses don't remember when you come in on your day off. it's not like the next time you want to call in sick, they'll give you extra special consideration or anything.

i came in one day for someone, then i called in like a week later. my boss laid this guilt trip on me because he has colon cancer and he has to come in every day. it's really fucking hard to feel guilty for people like that anyway. i was so furious because they seemed to have conveniently forgotten about me helping out when i wasn't supposed to come in, i put in my two weeks right then and there.

so from then on, i took a vow to NEVER fill in for someone else. i don't care how bad things are for them, how much they plead, or if they offer me triple pay. i make plans on my days off, and i'm not going to change them when i won't even get a thank you from anyone at work because i came in.

after 3 hours of work, I'm home...and with a headache

unfortunately, I had no choice in whether or not I switched schedules with my co-worker...my manager makes out the schedule, and just puts you wherever they need you. Even tho they don't really remember when you come in on your day off or not, they do remember if you're co-operative and, I suppose if I ever had something planned, it would be nice to have my co-worker cover for me too...if I say no now, or complain too many times, then when it comes time for me to be off, they'd probably whine and say "remember back when...." or something like that

I don't answer the phone on my days off...and I wasn't even home when he called! I was stoopid and returned the call from my answering machine
