I Am Tired And Grumpy
I work 11-7, every Friday and Saturday night. I worked last night, and thank goodness I took a nap before. That is not common practice for me, on a usual Friday. Due to my husbands new work schedule, however, I have to get a little nap in, or I may not get any sleep. At 6:45 this morning, when I am dying to go home, the nurse that is relieving me comes in, has a temper tantrum about her assignment, and promptly leaves. At first no one was real concerned, because we thought she just went to smoke a cigarette, or cool off, and would return. Nope she never came back, never called, nothing. So unprofessional, irritating, and yes completely legal in a right to work state. As long as she had not yet accepted her assignment, she can just leave with no notice, and that is exactly what she did. So I had to wait around, because I did have the narcotic keys, for them to decide who would relieve me. Of course this is always a major battle, as no one wants to come in and work, even though they are on call, and get paid to be on call. I never got out until, almost two hours late, and am now going to bed, in a very grumpy mood. I hope everyone has a wonderful Saturday.
