They can sod off – 1st September 2000

Friday 1st I’ve had a really boring day which just turned really bad this evening but only cos I had to go to work. They’ve put up the new rotas and I’m working every night next week except Wednesday. They can sod off cos I can’t and won’t do that. I do have a social life plus college work and there’s no way I can fit it all in. My A levels are much more important than a job at the moment and I told them I can’t work Friday nights. It’s probably going to be the only time I’ll get to see Jake from now on so I don’t really want to give that up. I got told in that interview that I’d only be working a couple of nights a week and then at weekends. Four night plus weekends is not on!

Sarah reckons that’s too much and when I told Jake tonight, he said the same. I’ll have to speak to that Sandra woman about it tomorrow. She wasn’t there tonight and she’s the one who does the rotas apparently. I’m not sure what I’m gonna say but something needs to be said.

I think I must have done something wrong today cos this Julie girl dragged me off to one side and told me that when I put the checks with orders on in the kitchen, I have to do something if they’ve got certain things one them. I didn’t have a clue what she was on about but she just repeated what she’d said so I just nodded and she assumed I understood and wandered off.

If nobody tells me how things run, how am I meant to know? I’d ask but if I think I’m doing it right then I assume I don’t need to. Somebody should’ve gone through everything with me on the first day but instead they just showed me the odd thing and left me to it. Sarah said that didn’t seem right either. I’m glad I’m not the only one with that opinion!

Anyway, Jake just phoned me at about 11:30pm, cos he’s reached British waters now so he’s got signal. He’s really not pleased at the idea of The Green Dragon people trying to make me work Friday nights. He didn’t have a lot to say really cos unfortunately his phone battery was going.
