Answering A Question

I had to laugh at Rudee's question in comments:

"BTW, Is the wench shaping up or is she still taking advantage? Inquiring minds want to know."

The wench in question is Pooldad's coworker who has been forcing him to work more then he should due to her complete lack of work ethic. When I asked her why she would schedule him so many more hours [than her] when they are supposed to be job sharing she replied, "Oops I made a mistake on the schedule. It won't happen again Skip."

Wellllll....she did make the schedule a bit more fair this week. He had 2 early days [YAY!] but, [drumroll please] guess who took today off? Yep. She wants to go to the beach. Pooldad gets to work both shifts today for a total of 15 hours [7am - 10pm] because she has the day off. In the Spring. Within two weeks of Memorial Day, which is "D-Day" in the pool biz because that is when all the pools need to be open and sparkling.

She is going to be completely out of vacation and personal days before we hit July at this point. But no worries. She is leaving the company at the end of the year.

Just praying they don't offer me the job. Me? Pool management experience? Why no, I know nothing. giggle.

Ah, (light bulb above my head beginning to illuminate): she has short timer's syndrome.

I don't know if I told you this, but my brother was called in for a job to help an employee finish her work. She started calling in sick and they fired her, giving him her job. You snooze, you lose. Who can afford that in this economy and job market?

Nah...Rudee, she has been doing this the whole time he has worked is just the way she is, no work ethic.

And it is hard to have short timers when your last day is Dec. 31st and it is only Apr./
