Hi guys

I have a summer job and you choose your hours. In the interview I said I'd like to do three days a week but I'd be willing to do four in busy periods if that was needed. However, they seem to have just ignored the first bit and given me four days off the bat. Before anyone asks, no this is not a busy period at all.

What I'm wondering is how I should go about saying to them that I don't want to do four. I'm not backing out of the shifts I've already been given though. I know I should send an email, and what I basically should say, but what I'm asking is (i) has anyone done this kind of thing before; (ii) does anyone have any advice as to how to avoid annoying them too much? I don't know if I'm overthinking this, but I don't like letting people down (especially since this is a job I go back to each year)!

Thanks
