Mandy's Dilemma Series: 9
Mandy got herself a job nearly a year ago after being gone for over four years in the working field.
At first, she dreaded working at her job. Now, not so much. In fact, she looks forward to it if only it means for her to get out of the house. The money isn't the issue though it is nice to have a little extra play money to buy gifts and such.
She was struggling for years because she had to homeschool her kid and then her husband became deathly ill to the point where he could hardly see enough to drive.
Last month, Mandy took on the hours that no one wanted. She was working 20-30+ hours a week. Suddenly the month of November came up and the co-worker that couldn't work Wednesdays had suddenly started saying she needed Mondays off.
Mandy can only cover every other Monday shift considering she's working in the child care area every other Monday. But what Mandy noticed was the days she told her boss she could fill in on those Mondays after 6:30, her co-worker is now working them. This was the same co-worker that said she needed Mondays off.
Unfortunately for Mandy, she just has to brush it off and pray when she finds her next job, she won't have to be stuck with such a two-faced, wishy-washy person. This co-worker already has a full-time job. Why can't this co-worker just find something else and let the real people who need the hours have them?
Mandy is definitely conflicted about it but as always, she takes the higher road and says nothing. She figures karma will get this co-worker in the end...Hopefully.
