Everyone in the building I work in comes in at 8 in the morning. All of them work the same shift…. except for me. I have to be there at 10. That probably seems weird to most of you, but there is a reason for it (Damn you, California and your time zone!). Whenever overtime is required, they will stay until I normally leave (6:30) and I will come in when they normally clock in.
About five months ago, a new girl started working with us. As far as I knew, we didn’t have any problems, but I’m beginning to think that we do.
You see, in the five months that she’s worked here, she has never stayed late. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blame her for that. Hell, I only work over when I need the money. In that same time, I’ve worked overtime somewhere between 10-15 days.
And every single day that I’ve come in early (except one), she has called in.
Granted, 3 or 4 of those days were during the two week stretch she was out for surgery, but still….
That’s at least 6 days during the last five months that she’s missed, and always on the days that I come in early.
What the hell???
It’s happened too much to be a coincidence. It has to be planned. I’m just wondering how she knows. Take today, for example. It wasn’t decided that I was coming in early today until after she left yesterday, so how the hell did she know?
I’m starting to sense a conspiracy….
