During the late spring and summer I took off for Animazement and Otakon, but I knew I wouldn't be hitting any cons after that until Usa. In September I had off for Labor Day and I'll have off (1 day) for Thanksgiving. But I'll be off the Monday and Tuesday before the holiday. But I haven't decided if I was going to actually take that day yet. I mean I have that scheduled off, but I may not take it. I have to see what kind of mood I'm in by the end of Usa.
But I need to pick which day I want to take off, either tomorrow or Tuesday. But when I think about it, I can't... Or should I say, I shouldn't take Tuesday off, cause that's the day those bozos from JACHO are going to be here and I do have a doctor's appointment the day after that, which I will be leaving early for. So it's going to have to be either Friday or nothing...
Knowing how I am with this damn work ethic of mine, I'll more then likely not take any day off and come in tomorrow disgusted. They're supposedly having some "pot-luck" Halloween type party tomorrow, but I'm not feeling it.
However, this entire month I have worked straight through. I've never done something like that before. Even when I was in school, I'd either skip a day or something. No one should have to work like this. I mean for goodness sakes, I don't have Dec. 26th or Jan. 2nd off (But I'm sure the fabulous Mark has those days off) that simply isn't fair.
I'm office staff, not medical/ "field" staff. I don't have any interaction with patients, save for looking at their charts or having to deal with them when they call, so why should I have to come in on "Observed" holidays? And even though, both those days are "federal observed holidays", I'm sure I won't be getting paid time and a half like I really should be.
Oh healthcare (and the fabulous one) can suck it! When I'm done at this job, I swear the next job I get will be something where I do something creative and don't have to work with a group of bitey, whiney, gossipy, backing-stabbing, self-righteous women. And I'll never again work in healthcare! This is just an exercise in pointlessness and I know next time to choose something better suited to me instead of the first thing that comes along.
Woo-hoo: I wanna take some time off and I think tomorrow is going to be the ticket.
