well, THAT didn't go as planned

* clocked out 1 and 43 minutes after my scheduled leave time

Now, I DID get to vent my spleen when I filled out my "missed punch" form (yes, we even have to fill out one if we punch out after our scheduled leave time.  I fill out a lot of these.  Under reason, I wrote:

2nd shift's inability to show up for relief in a timely fashion, if at all. Flagrant disregard for employees' time and lives outside of work. Massive breakdown of communication on all levels, particularly management.

Yeah.  'Bout covers it.

* ended up using the brown ballpoint pen.  Twice.  And that's all I have to say about THAT.

* belatedly realized that I should have been more specific about in-fighting among Deity to include the fact that all it takes is one paranoid schizophrenic with dementia to turn that in to a one woman show (thank you, Mz. Edith & Co.)

* didn't mention "no fights between residents.  Especially one where the agressor thinks the agressee (?) is sleeping with her husband."

*To the above, should have added "Never want to hear my sweet Miz C--who gives me peppermints like I'm a kid and calls me shug--scream at the top of her lungs 'You touch my husband again, and I'll kill you, you piss drinking cunt slut!'"

And, to add insult to injury, our visiting shrink brought lunch for the entire staff from Panera.  Strangely enough, none of that food ever made it back to MC.

To make a bad day worse, I found out that a resident's potassium and sodium levels are seriously borked, and her (ex) husband (who brings his new wife to visit with him.  Which explains why he gave me that look when I said I thought it was really sweet of him to bring their daughter to visit.  I didn't know they were divorced, let alone that he'd remarried) said don't take her to the hospital and just call a priest.  If those are her wishes, so be it...but dude can't even be bothered to call the priest to arrange Last Rites?

I told my supervisor that I would like to know when they have the priest in, because SOMEONE should be there, and I'm betting family won't be.

In the end, I did get my chili dogs and beer, but no fried pickle chips.  THEY TOOK THAT ITEM OFF THE MENU LAST WEEK!

*sob*  I just can't win.

But I am off for the next three days.  And I am not answering that fucking phone.

Enjoy your days off!

I couldn't do the work you are doing. But I do think it's sweet how you speak about the residents. And how the obviously care for you, too. <3

Life without fried pickles really isn't worth living. :(

Bury your phone under a mile of blankets just so it can never be heard until you're back on schedule. That sounds brutal!

People *not* showing up at work when they are supposed to are the worst kind. Urgh.

Will the info in that punch out achieve anything? By all rights it should. It totally outrageous especially if 2nd shift is being paid for that time.

Enjoy your time off!

That sounds horrendous. Do they have trouble finding people to work?

"It's so sweet of you to bring your daughter..."

Snort.

Sorry about the fried pickles. I would be bummed too.

Good on you for calling out second shift precisely and in detail. 'Well no one told me!' is one of my most despised excuses from higher-ups, especially when everyone knows it's not true.

Bonus brownie points (hahahahahaha) for using the brown pen anyway. Was looking at 'special pens' for trivia yesterday, thought of you when I saw a surprising number of brown gel and ball points. :D

As to the rest, all I can say is hang in there. You are awesome and the universe knows it.
