I am getting a bit fed up with life in general and my boss in particular, who does he think he is anyway? I´ve still got leave left from last year, when, whilst being on leave I got a call to come in to interpret at a meeting. That was the end of my leave, for a week and a half I ended up going into work in the morning, back home at lunch time for the wee ones and back to work once my eldest came home to supervise his brothers. Needless to say, the time I spent at home and driving back and forth was considered “leave” so I lost out in the first place, not to mention being completely stressed out. So now they are saying I can not take my leave and will loose it at the end of this months. “Should have taken it last year” – Hang on a minute!!!! I´ve spent hours arguing the toss, so I´ve taken 5 days at random this month but 3 days remain. Will he sign to say I can not take the leave so that I have grounds to carry it over – NO, to sh… scarred what Big Boss might say (who is oblivious to the fact that, if we are forces to take our leave, we´ll end up working mega overtime to make up for lost time) but I won´t get my leave either – so loose it – NO WAY!!! Apart from that, 20 hrs of overtime are “included in our pay” so it just gets written off at the end of the months – but if we are an hour short of our regular working hrs then we have to work 21 (twenty-one) hours to make up for the 1 we are short- REMIND ME AGAIN; WHAT AM I DOING HERE?????
