I don't know what to do. People at work keep calling and texting me to come in to work. Even my best friend sent me messages last night asking me to work. When I didn't answer, she sent me another one trying to make me feel guily because she wound up working both her shift and the other person's. I didn't make her take the shift. I wasn't even home. I had had plans all week, and people at work knew that. I don't understand why I can't have a day off without being called and sent messages constantly about taking someone's shift.
That place is too stressful right now. I don't need this. Everyone else takes their days off, and don't cover for anyone else, so why so I have to take them all? I know we need the money, but I just can't go in right now. I thought I was going to have a heart attack at work the other day because of all the stress.
I don't know how often I've covered for someone else, and then when I needed a day off, I had to work sick because I couldn't afford a doctor's note, and no one would cover my shift. I'm not doing favors for someone knowing they won't help me later on. I know that sounds selfish, and I don't mean to be, but I'm so tired of helping everyone else, and they won't help me when I need it.
I had plans. Why is that so wrong? Everyone else over there has a life of their own. Why do I have to sit at home waiting for the phone to ring to go into work?
I'm sorry about this. I just had to talk to someone, and it doesn't feel like I have anywhere else to vent.
