Mad as all heck.....And an interview

so I am so thinking about quitting my job...I am as fired up as a ...As A...Heck I have no idea..But I am fuming...First of all I am scheduled to work Friday and I cant because my daycare is not open that day..(madatory inservice or something).

My boss will call me..And ask me to cover a shift. Other co-workers will ask me to cover a shift or trade shifts with them...Not once have I ever said no...I am a "go getter"..Always willing to help out...So when I told my boss that I was having trouble with working Friday..(which I ws hired to work the afternoon shift..And this is a morning one, and that is what is causing trouble..If it were the shift I was suppose to work, this would not be an issue)..
Anyway she tells me I need to find my own replacement...WTF????
Now after all the crap I have done to bend over backwards to help out when I was needed on my days off..And the one time I cant show up..She tells me to find my own replacement...I thought you were the boss...Not my job....Plus it is costing me more in daycare than I even get paid..My bill for July that we just got today was $245...And I only worked like 3 or 4 days...WTF?????

So I am thinking of quitting and starting my own daycare..I thought about it before when I lived in Michigan...Just never went thro with it...So that is my dilemma today...

Ok on to my interview...I am being interviewed by Robin at www.smilingthroughthecracks.blogspot.com
I love this stuff..LOL

1. If you could be reincarnated as any animal of your choosing, what would it be? Why?
I would be a bird..I would love to be able to fly...But not a bird who is trapped in a birdcage who cant fly...Maybe a parrot in the rain Forrest:)



2. What is your favorite quality about yourself?
I can be funny @ times...And I tell it like it is..

3. If you could do anything without getting caught and with no ramifications, what would you do and why?
this is a hard one...Probably fudge at winning the lotto..So I don't have to spend the buck to my own ticket:-)
4. Describe yourself in high school. If you had to do it again, would you change or be the same? Why?
Lets see...bitchy,hormonal,trampy and fun....I would change nothing because I had a good time...LOL

5. If you could eat only 1 food ever again, what would it be?
Club sandwich with no tomato on wheat bread with fat free Mayo and extra crispy bacon...Oh yeah....And a dt.dr. pepper to wash it down with

The fudging at lotto--now, that would be cool.

Starting your own daycare. Wow. Definitely check into it. You would have more stories to tell. Yay! :)

I know about work--they suck sometimes. Hope it works out. Talk to you later. :)

If you're paying for daycare with your pay check alone.. then it's totally illogical to be working at your current job.

Day care.. for sure, there was a whole family of sisters that worked the town I grew up in and they made a killing taking care of kids in their home, even if it was only before and after school.

if you have a place that will work in your house to run a daycare then do it - you will make a killing. If my kids weren't in it only 24 hours per week there is no way we could afford it.

Tee said...

That sandwich is sounding mighty tasty :p~ LOL.

As for the job - Seriously, if it costs more to keep it, why? That's the reason I don't work - it wouldn't cover daycare costs - and no one is flexible enough to accomadate needing a day off for sick children and things like that. It's impossible for mother's on a budget!

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Marel, yes I would never run out of matriel..lol

Gab,yes, I wanna make a killin..lol and i do not want my check going to pay for someone to care for my kids;)

Momma,I am thinking about setting up my basment..it is a full finshed basmet with a walkout to the backyard...a bathroom a bedroom and a play room..a living room with tv...i would be stupid not too..right..

Tee, right on...it is hard..and even my job I work 4 hours..just do get out of the house..but it is costing me more than i am making:(

I'd quit and persue the daycare thing if ya got the patience for other people's kids...lol...no sense in working at another job if the daycare bill is more than what ya make.

Angie said...

I am somewhat shocked at the cost of daycare now. When my oldest was small I needed her to be in daycare for about a month. Back then it was $35 a week. Can you believe it?

How's it going with the bats?

Robin said...

I have a hard enough time caring for MY kids, much less anyone else's! If you have the patience (and the meds), go for it!!

Great answers!! :-)

Sorry to hear about the work crap. It sucks when you're a good worker who works their ass off and you are not appreciated. You'd think that since you're always stepping up to the plate to fill in that your boss would be able to help you out.

The daycare wouldn't be a bad idea. I did it myself for 5 years. It's long hours tho and then just when the last kid goes home and you breath a sigh of relief, you turn around and realize you still have your own kids to deal with, cause no one's comin to pick them up!

Hope things get sorted out!

BTW, love your lottery idea! Good answer, good answer...

I actually had a daycare years ago before I had any kids of my own. I took care of two babies, and two older kids. It was so much fun, and it made me want my own babies! Of course, I got to send them home to their parents each night, which you don't get to do when you have your own.

Wethyb said...

I'll play :) You can interview me...lol.

Mmmm, club sandwiches sound so yummy!

I hear ya about the job....you know all about that. I hope you can get it squared away. That is crap. They get paid to be a boss, but they just pass the buck. I hate that crap!

Hope you're having a better day today!
