Happy Friday ~ Bruce Of The Day ! ~
I have to admit, I am surprised at a couple of instances that happened while I was out..and then..why the frak ( LMAO..much the same as I did when I was around Dakota, now that Carlee is a part of my life, the Fairy God Grandmother is going to try to watch the potty mouth..well...I'm gonna try..LMAO ) am I surprised ?
My department/section if you will is made up of 3 people.
When one of us is out, we jockey coverage and it usually works out. It is , or should be understood that when one is short staffed that it is not the optimum time for one of the other 2 to take 2 hour lunches or leave early.
Yep..that is exactly what Cha Cha did..on more than one occasion while I was on the coast.
I mean really ?
She has developed a really bad habit of pulling this crap. She won't share when she wants to take off they way the other gal and I do , she just does and screw anyone elses life. She is going to try to sneak and sneak is not me being snarky, it is literally her MO....out of here early today because she and her hubby are going to fly to Denver for the Football game. Yes dear hearts, she is the same one that habitually takes off the Monday after a game because her ass is so hungover she is quite the porcelain Buddha hugger.
Chronic to the point that the whole bloody office knows and expects it. She hinted broadly that " If it's a late flight back from Denver that she " might " not be in on Tuesday, " to which the third of our trio replied...." No...I have jury duty that day, beginning at 7:45 am. "
Any bets Cha Cha takes it off anyway ?
Didn't think so, you clever things, you .
Her panties are going to be in a royal twist when she figures out that she cannot take the day off after the Christmas party as is her custom as the third gal is going to be out of town. That time was properly submitted and approved long ago. Cha Cha thinks it is her God given right to take that day off and she was quite irked a few years ago when she was actually turned down..thank you again for that on general principal , Malibu .
She then started to submit the request a FULL 6 MONTHS in advance.
Yeah, she really did .
And they had no call to not approve it .
I have put in a request for time off in December, from the 21'st through the end of the year today.
Yes, I know I just came back from vacation.
Yes, I know that Cha Cha is used to me being more prudent with my accrued time off in the last quarter of the year because I carry over a month and cash it in to pay federal taxes.
I haven 't taken time off during the holidays since a trip to meet Dakota ..6 years ago.
Except I don't have to worry about that any more.
If I am short on time , and I don't care if I am , they can dock me.
I can afford it.
We are getting a new full time HR for the original office on October 2'nd. The gal who has been doing the job was the HR for the Atlanta office and took over that function for Houston in addition when Malibu retired.
I can't wait to see how Cha Cha thinks she is going to pull this crap with a new HR on duty.
The HR who is our direct supervisor in the chain of command here at the firm.
Good times, good times.
Have a great weekend .
