I had a 13 hour shift yesterday. My kitchen manager was doing the rota and said she really could do with more people on at Christmas market, and I said I’d do them all. So, then she put me on a 1600-2400 today, but at the end of my shift, another manager came in and said “Did kitchen manager ask you to work tomorrow?” and I said yes, and then she said “No honey, we have enough staff. Have a day off” so I thought cool.
Then I slept ‘til 4pm because life.
And then I had lots of texts from my kitchen manager asking where I was.
I hope this somehow doesn’t reflect badly on me, but I do feel sorry for them because I know they’re under-staffed and the manager who told me to keep my day off wasn’t kitchen staff.
