    48 hours in Sainsbury's?! When do the men in white coats come round?

    Honestly guys, that is maximum committment. Couldn't do it myself.

    I'm going on a bit of a rant, so I apologise. But PTM has pissed me off (she's covering maternity leave!!). I gave Sainsbury's an inch, and it would appear they're not satisfied and want a mile. As some will know, I also work at another store, for another company (on Sat and Sun) and when I agreed to come back over Christmas, it was on the basis I'll be working on a Mon, Wed and Fri. Now, on the schedule I'm working every single day!

    How unsociable are those hours? Plus, how come I get the **** split-shifts? I can't do ANYTHING on those days! :mad: Guess what the PTM says? 'But it's short notice and I don't think we'll be able to get cover; we're going to be so busy'. And? :mad:

    I've already told her.. :p:

    I'm mega pissed off purely because she didn't even ask me, she went ahead and put me down for stupid shifts.. I'm not quite sure what she was thinking? That I'd bow down and play ball?

    I can't wait to find out who'll now have to do the shifts and how they'll feel..

    It worries me that I'm desparate enough for money that I'll volunteer to extend my shifts to 12 hours long into day shift.
