End of the back shift.


Shift bids are out and the employees at the Undisclosed Customer Service Center™ have lost their minds over their shifts. Every six months its the same thing. People lose the shift they wanted or don't get the shift they wanted and lose their minds. There is much crying and bitching, it is quite entertaining.

Things should start getting back to normal for me now. Back-shift was starting to get to me. Although I was only working 3 days, it was the weekend and it was 13 hour shifts. The four days off were wasted on me, for some reason I was waking up at 4 or 5 am and was lucky if I could make it past suppertime before I crashed.

So, I am back on 5-1 shift. I am not at all upset about losing the backshift, I really liked 5-1. But they got this floating days off thing that is a downer. I will not know from week to week what days off I have.

Is it evil of me to be entertained by the people around me losing their minds?

FYI - Blogger spell checker is not working, so you will just have to deal with the type-o's

It doesn't matter what is offered to some people, they will bitch and moan.
In my experience, there are some personalities that will complain no matter what.
If you paid them to sit at home and do nothing, they would complain that they are bored and that their paycheque isn't direct deposit.
It's just how some people are.
