Not cool

One of my bosses called me the other day to see if I could come in this week for a staff meeting. Um, no. I don't exactly have child care started yet, and, um I think it was a little of bold of him to ask that.

So instead, him and another of my bosses setup a time for them to call me and fill me in. And my boss wanted to send me some stuff to look at ahead of time so I told him he could send it to my personal email since it's easier for me to check it than my work email.

I was able to check my email right before they were suppose to call and it was 16 freakin pages long... and it's an assignment and I'm supposed to have it done before the end of the month!

And it was a miracle that I was able to get Michael to take a nap right then... I mean a miracle. This kid doesn't sleep.

So my boss called me about 5 minutes after he said he would for the conference call and let me know that the other boss got hung up and can't make it and he wants to reschedule! Figures knowing him.

I'm pissed because it really was a burden for me to get everything in order just to take the call and they cancelled. And now I have to do it again.

But what is really not cool is that my boss is now forwarding a bunch of stuff to my home email. I'm not reading that crap. I'm on leave. I'm technically disabled until I get a drs note clearing me. Oh, and their is this little matter of getting paid.

I sincerely hope the next time they call M takes an audible dump during the call and I have to bail on them.

Sucks hon! I'd be friggin' pissed as well!

That is pure crap, seriously! I could honestly see my boss doing the same thing.

An assignment while you're off?! Terrible! Can't believe they're doing that. I'd find it so hard to not say something... :/

That's ridiculous. Either they pay you a hefty fee for the work they want you to do now, or they wait till you come back. Either you're on leave, or you're being paid to do work, you're not working for free!

MMM I would be PISSED.

Michelle said...

Definitely not cool at all! And you are off unpaid right? They are nuts if they expect you to do that for nothing! They really have some nerve!
On a side note,maybe once you've been cleared, they would pay you to work at home a little before starting back full time.

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog regarding the sleeping issue - or lack there of. Knowing others have gone through and made it to the other side helps so much. I really appreciate it.

That's ridiculous! They should respect your bonding time with the baby! I don't blame you for being irritated!

That really sucks. I think I'd tell them I'd be glad to work at home, as long as that meant I was covered just the same as at the office--so, for instance, if I hurt myself while working at home, surely it would be covered by their workers' compensation policy. (Big eye rolls, of course.)

That really stinks! I hope it's all worked out now and they got their senses back!
