04:00 Breakfast

Wife's supervisor moved today's work time start up from 06:00 to 05:00.  wife complained about it and yes, it sucks because it was a last minute thing and  it means we both have to get up that much earlier (me especially), but I told her she should look at it in that her supervisor may look upon her more than the other people in the department as someone who 間に合う's. 


Anyway got up at 03:30 made her her breakfast, and as I usually do on Friday morning's, print out her schedule for the coming week and put it beside her food.  She already knows she has this Sunday off and the rest of the schedule is off on Monday, then a straight 5-day 06:00 to 14:30 from Tuesday to Saturday and off again on Sunday.


Now Sunday is time and a half, regardless and for that reason, many actually prefer to work on that day.  The first thing she zeros in on is 'Why do I have 2 Sunday's in a row off?'  'I'm full-time and should have priority before the part-timers' (which most of the people are), and then complaining about having to work 5-straight days.   Doesn't do much good to point out that from a supervisor's point of view, she (the supervisor) has to be fair in allocating who gets to work on Sunday's, and when it comes to a straight 5-day week, Ah, that's what I used to do without complaint. Sure I had a desk job but……


Being a bit self–centered and a glass half empty person is not a fun thing.
