I put up with a lot at work.
I never get the days off that I request.
My boss makes me work late, even when I have plans. He doesn’t give me the days off that I request. When the kitchen AC broke down and the boss refused to fix the machine, I finally had enough. I came to work last Tuesday and I told my boss that I was not going to work until the AC was fixed. My boss told me to go home. I happily did oh, because I wasn’t going to work another hour and that restaurant without cool air. It was 95 degrees outside everyday. And the kitchen, the temperatures were even harder. I had already worked two days without AC and I was not going to work a third day. I hoped that my boss would budge, but I wasn’t surprised that he decided to send me home instead. I was scheduled to work at 11 the next day, but I stayed home. I didn’t even call my boss. At noon, the guy called to find out if I was coming to work. I asked my boss if he had the AC problems fixed. I heard him make a really long sigh and then he said that he would call someone if I came to work. Thank goodness my boss needs me to be in the kitchen. It is literally the only card I have to play and the only thing that made him fix the AC problems in the restaurant kitchen. My coworkers should thank me.
