OK, so here at work I am the manager of myself and two other people, one woman and one man.
My BIG problem is that every time I have a doctor's apointment the man calls in sick. Meaning either I leave my department short staffed or I reschedule my apointment.
I usually deal with it even though its a pain in the rump but this week he has only been in one time .. he dosn't even do the calling in his wife does .. he has been out 3 days this week and all he will say is he dosn't feel well ... NEITHER DO I!! I need to get into my doctor, I need to not be stressed like this ... I need to ... SCREAM!!
Im sorry, its not so much about being pregnant as being mad .. I dont know if I am over reacting .. or if he is mad at the attention I get because Im pregnant or what .. my company gave me a little couch in my office so I can lay down when my M/S was sooo bad I looked green .. every time he sees me on it he goes .. must be nice ...
Am I being lame ... am I mad for nothing ... I mean .. I wasn't even going to come in today .. I made an apointment to get my hair & nails done .. it was going to be the 'feel like a real girl agian' day .. but now Im here at work .. SOOO MAD ..
Help, I dont want to be a grumpy gus .. especially if hes not doing anything wrong ...
HES BEING A JERK!!! You know what??? I would consider writing him up! He's a grown man and he has to have his wife call in for him! What a loser! So what if you get extra attention when your sick! Your the manager and he's the worker--he needs to get over it! You have more patience than I do because I'd tell him to not let the door hit him in the a** on the way out!!!
Pregancy is a very special and sometimes stressful time. Try to enjoy yourself and if that guy can't drag his butt to work, then maybe he needs to find a job that's less demanding!
I couldn't have said it better, Jodie! Write him up and consider filing a formal complaint. He is obviously not a good worker, nor is he a team player! What a loser and I don't blame you a bit! Don't get too worked up though! You have to take care of you! Good luck <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
I am sooo sorry you have to deal with that!!! I agree wholeheartedly with the other women - FIRED!!! That kinda attitude and absenteeism should not be tolerated!!! Having his wife call in - what a weanie!! You are pg and if he could experience it I am sure he would be "singing a different song"! He would be whining and complaining and not worth a darn!! But you have a right to be able to rest on the couch and try to feel better!! You are carrying a special cargo and have to take care of yourself!!!
I am going through somewhat a similar thing because the other people in the office can be sick, but I can't because I am needed. Isn't that sweet, NOT!! I haven't had a full day off yet - granted we can't really afford it, but still. They look at me funny if I leave early and wonder why!
Oops now I am venting!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/tongue.gif">
