Came at home at 10 am and my boss called me right now and said if I could do a double from 5pm to 9 am and I said
"I don't think so, I'm sorry"
Should I have worded it better? I mean seriously I would have 3 hours of sleep and then 2 hours commute into 16 hours of work but she wouldn't care if I'm tired.
Thanks my fellow wage slaves.
I just thought "I don't think so" came off a bit rude but honestly it was ridiculous since she called at 1 pm when I was finishing cooking and eating my meal and getting ready to sleep for another day's work. Maybe with a day's warning I would have done it.
You're good. At a certain point, you've got to start saying "no" and watching out for yourself. Because you can be sure as fuck that if you don't speak up, they will take advantage of you as much as they can
This image brought me to this board. It's kind of true except NEETs shouldn't be that high because long term they're not well off.
Also your response is fine. Bosses know they won't get a yes 100% of the time. You won't be fired or troubled or looked down upon or anything. As long as you're a reasonable worker, it's ok
I figured as much. I already did doubles earlier including one for Halloween when I told her if she could fine someone else, I would prefer it but if not I would do it. She didn't even ask my co worker who works that regular time slot and told me she would have done it and I ended up doing it.
You're under no obligation to treat your employers better than they treat you (so long as you're not so abrupt that it causes problems for you, of course.) That was ridiculously short notice.
I work a desk security job where most people except me are absent I haven't taken one day off.
Well I'm not worked like a dog since I just sit there all night doing whatever I want, but if I fall asleep I'll get fired. So having no prep sleep time and asking me to do it is retarded since I'll take the fall if I fall asleep.
