Female - 26 Years Old
Okay, so let me tell you guys about this shit:
So we have this huge deadline of Dec 31st for this really important project at work. Since the beginning of November I've been working 10-12 hour days mon-fri and 6 hours on Saturdays. Out of mostly my own will, although they do make you feel guilty if you don't stay. So anyway, now the holidays are here and everyone in this fucking company gets Christmas Eve and New Years Eve off, making it a four day weekend.But, not us. Or so, we thought. Here's the thing, we need maybe one day left to finish it, everything after that is stuff that we have til the end of January to complete.
So, why the fuck do we need to be here on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve for work that doesn't have to be done? Like, we can't have one fucking day off after all is this time? I can't even get two days off in a row.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
They didn't tell us until FRIDAY that we had to come in. They made it sound, by wording and behavior that it was absolutely mandatory or we would get in trouble or something. I remember when one girl tried to get them to say it was "mandatory" they just hesitated and were like "well, you know, technically it is a work day, so yes and no but you have to come in" and just dicked around the whole thing.
Then my HR lady called my boss and I overheard her getting in trouble for basically giving us this short-notice impression that its MANDATORY we come in. It seemed to end with the fact that technically, she didn't say the word "mandatory", so I think that's why she didn't send out a type of correction and this is all just coming out now by all of us putting these pieces together. They just implied it.
And guess what, the fucking asshole supervisors and managers didn't even come in today. Why should they? They know its not mandatory, they couldn't even come in and face their employees for a few hours. Fuck them.
I'm so pissed, and beyond EXHAUSTED. I haven't had even two days in a row off, and I'm just pissed as shit they lied and that I'm fucking here when I just want to sleep and cry from tiredness. I need a break, and I'm so pissed that I'm here now. Fucking assholes, dude.
