Short Lived!

Just a quick update since Drew is here spending the day and Amber is here also, and I promised her I would take her shopping.

First shift for Bumpa was short lived......about 3 weeks. He must return to second shift again beginning Monday. Neither of us is very happy about it because they told him this first shift job would be for a long time. They didn't say the gal whose job this really is was off on disability and due back soon. Bosses are very tricky and lie to you in order to get the job done. We are both pretty upset by this, but since there isn't anything we can do about it, we will just have to deal with it. I will be returning to being a married woman who must attend all family functions that are in the evening hours as a single woman.......a fifth wheel you might say! Hub is ready to start acting like all the other employees though, and just do what he has to in order to get by. He says he is done busting his butt and working any overtime they ask when it is not mandatory just to help them out. If they treat their employees like this, he doesn't feel the need to go out of his way to be overly accommodating for them either!

Sorry about the shift change. I don't blame hubby for feeling as he does.

More hugs
