so a few weeks ago i said i'd do a few hours on xmas morning eve to provide an emergency service until 12pm, but then needed to get away as we have a 7 hour drive to get down to south to see my parents / brother / rest of family. Oh yes thats fine they all said.
Anyway last week i found out this had been misunderstood (hmm how convenient for my boss) and i was now having to provide cover until 5pm as no one else could do it. I asked my boss if she could do the 12-5 bit so i could get away at lunchtime and she said no she cant she's working at the other office. She knows i want to get away early as we have a 2 yr old little girl and didnt want a late night journey.
so today i find out that the lying cow isn't working at all but still wont do my afternoon cover, which she could do from home, and the chance of anything happening in the afternoon is basically zero as everyone with problems tends to call first thing in the morning. Now i've got a mega pissed off wife giving me grief as well as she doesnt want to be sitting in a car all night on xmas eve.
I hope father Christmas shoves a f'ing xmas tree up her backside and her turkey gives her food poisoning (my boss that is, not my wife.)
