Diane you have EVERY right to be angry, frustrated... and more angry! i would be so upset by that. dont you hate it when you give your all, and you do your best- and its STILL not enough?? your employer sounds like they are exploiting/black mailing you. as in "if you dont work wknds, you lose your job." that to me is more than unfair. they are using and abusing your rights and your good nature. totally unacceptable. im sorry your family were less than supportive. do you belong to a union? is there some way of making a formal complaint without jeapordising your position?
keep us posted and know that you will always be supported here, no judgement, just caring.
I am so sorry this has happened. I worked full time 3-11PM which included every other weekend all the years my children were at home. I had the schedule you had but as it was evenings every other year I missed Christmas at my in-laws with my husband and children.and also had to speed through Chritmas Morning as I had to leave the house by 2:30 PM.
New Years Eves I would try to get done on time and be home by Midnight to be with my husband. That did not always happen.
I understand your feelings.........yes I had Easter weekend too and if my birthday fell on my weekend I had to take my birthday holiday on a weekday.
But I had a job and I had 4 children to raise and send to college, a husband with Crohn's and we lived around my schedule. I know your feeling down right now but let out the tears and the frustration and then let go as with our economy jobs are being cut by the thousands and if you need to work I would feel you will have to roll with the punches.
You can do this. I have been looking for a little part time job and there is nothing out there. I do understand how not fun it is to work weekends and holidays. (((((HUGS)))))))))
