>People are strange… this is no big surprise for anyone, at least I hope not! They just do the strangest things… sometimes the motivations are good ones and other times… well yeah, you get the point.

Lately I’ve been having a rough time at work. I haven’t been very happy being there. I do go through patches like this where I am unhappy.. not necessarily because of what I do… but other things. Honestly, I love what I do.

I have a second under me… I’ve always gotten Sundays and Mondays off since I became the head. She, of course, doesn’t like this and brings it up every week. She doesn’t think its fair that she has to work Sundays alone and that she doesn’t get them off.

The thing is… I never got Sundays off when I was the second.. its just the way it is. We got into a huge fight over it…. and I think this finally made her go and start complaining. On Tuesday when the schedule was written, I was told I’d get every other Sunday and Monday off now… which means… I work eight days straight every other week.

It just pisses me off some of the things people do… I mean really. I gave her everything she’s ever wanted… if she wanted to take a special day off… no problem.. we make it work… she needed a special schedule… no problem… we set it up so she could have it.

I do a lot of extra stuff that she doesn’t do because I’m the first…. the ONLY perk I get for it… is my days off. They are the days off I have with Ben. We only get those days to spend real time together because he commutes to work 45 minutes in each direction. I worked very hard and long to get to where I am… and I feel like I’m being punished.

I totally understand why she feels its unfair… but honestly she knew what the job entailed before she agreed to take it… so I didn’t feel too bad. Not to mention that half the time I am carrying about 70% of the work load.

It’s just so frustrating to me. So in the air of compromise I’ve tried to come up with a solution. She can have Fridays and Saturdays off and I take Sundays and Mondays. I think its fair… that way we both get what we want. I just wish she could be a better person and not be so ungrateful. But whatever…. I still get to work eight glorious days straight this week (today is day four).

The things I do in the name of friendship.
