Maybe We Should Do This A Different Way

Recently, I was presented with a problem. Not a big problem. Just one where I decided it was time to draw a line. You see there is an issue with individuals calling in sick on Saturday nights at my job. The problem is it feels like it is the same people who call in sick. It has become such an issue that we recently received that collective lecture about the issue.

I was okay with the collective talk because I know the rules have to be laid out clearly before problems can be addressed. But then Saturday rolled around and two of the individuals who seem to be gone frequently weren't there.

Suddenly the manager decides it might be a good idea to train me to do their jobs. I was just a little miffed and reminded the manager that we had just received the attendance lecture. She said that is true. And she let it rest. Because she knows that is the real problem. I don't know if that will be the end of it. But I did feel better because I said something.
