Frustrated  Posted: 2:28 PM, June 7th (Saturday), 2014View ProfileEdit MessagePrivate MessageHomepage

Just got an angry call from work - I was on the schedule and totally blew it.

I work in two locations so I make a master calendar and somehow today's assignment fell off.

I feel like a f#$%ing idiot. They already have coverage. My very nice manager practically hung up on me. Today was super busy - as Saturdays usually are.

I'm really good about schedules and deadlines and stuff - I have been off my game lately because of a rosacea treatment that has really affected my face - I know that's a huge element to my distraction.

I'm really disappointed that I've let my distraction/issues/pity party get in the way of being an effective employee. I feel pretty useless right now.

Just needed to vent.

It happens to everyone. If you are traditionally a good employee then figure out with your current situation what is reasonable.

If you can keep up with the current schedule then apologize and focus at work. Also if they need coverage or someone needs their time covered offer if you are free.

Trust me a good manager knows who is a good employee and someone who is chronically unreliable. Apologize let it go but figure what is best for you and your schedule.

I agree with that, fireproof, having been a manager for many years.

The thing is, I took this job because of it's flexible schedule because I am technically chronically unreliable right now. My daughter's asthma means I can't commit to anything full time, but between Crazz and myself we have been able to make the part time schedule work because it's mostly weekends. Not ALL weekends, but some. So on the one hand the schedule is not ever fixed or predicatable, but I get it about a month and a half in advance so we always have coverage.

This is my first miss since I have been there (March) but I still hate the feeling. I know we're only human and I've gone above and beyond for this company and been recognized for that. No way around that this was a total NUCLEAR gaffe today, though. It's not going to just wash away. Sigh.

Shit happens. It's obvious how upset you are about this, and that you take your job seriously.

It's not like you're a kid who just decided to blow off a day of work because "OMG EVERYONE IS GOING TO THE BEACH TODAY!!!!!11!!!". It was a mistake.

I hope you can speak with your boss after he/she calms down. On the plus side---they were able to get coverage.

Why didn't they call you immediately, when your start time came and went and you were not there?

I hope your treatment for the rosacea gets you feeling better soon.

Ah hell. I totally get it. I hate to not be where I've committed myself to be. And I've been that manager who had to make the call because of a shortage too. Send an immediate email apologizing, and follow it up on Monday with a call. Hopefully your manager will have had a chance to calm down by then. (((hugs)))


Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

I sent the apology email seconds after we got of the phone.

Thanks for the support everyone. Siiiiiiiigh.

((((((Jrazz)))))))) That totally sucks. Guess what? You're human. I understand though because I pride myself on my reliability and work ethic. I'd hate it if I did something like that.

Can't change it, though.

It'll be okay .

What AN says.

Like AN, I pride myself on my reliability, and even so, sometimes I blow it.

I hope the fallout is minor.
