Another week done and my final assignment is nearly finished. The sun is out in force and i really want to sit out and enjoy it but my hayfever will no doubt piss me off, so ill stick to the shade and safety of indoors, as im running low on hayfever tablets.
I cant believe the phone call from my manager who may i add has been her post 5 minutes, i have just had to endure. She rang up with the sole intention of trying to belittle me and with it tried to insult me. I have worked in the same place for seven years and never have i had to encounter the kind of verbal insults that i have today. She told me that it i had under ordered stock and accussed me off over using the stock. When i challeneged her on this she had the audacity to call me rude, and i was so shocked by her accusation because i asked her to repeat herself due to her dialect being so strong that i nearly raised my voice. I am shocked and saddened that in situation we now face ourselves in people think they can get way with this type of behaviour.
Further psycho behaviour from my line manager. I legitimately requested a holiday day for the 25th May BH, knowing that the branch where I work will be closed. I have over 20 days left of entitlement owed to me and I let them know a month in advance give or take a few days (which i was told to do). My line manager has deliberately refused to give me the day off, for no reason. When I told her the branch where I work is closed in an email she still refused and suggested that i can catch up with other things instead of giving me the day off. I have about 20 or so days remaining and so it would make sense to take it when the branch staff are also off but apparently, this logic was just too immense for her tiny mind to comprehend.
I believe she just did not like the fact that I didnt get confused over the change from the early 4th BH to the 8th this year and she was hoping I would request to book off the wrong day, (just so she could say no). I didn't however because I checked online for the correct date. As this particular early BH on the 8th this year is included as part of our contracted holidays she had to ok it. However, she never notified me that this year it would be changing from the 4th to the 8th and also the website that I log into removed all the BH dates from the homepage for the year, coincidently about a week ago.
Bank holiday nearly over. It will be 6 weeks and counting until I finish my degree and then everything will be changing. For a start i can start applying for full time work again and i can also move out. I have started to think about where i want to live and with the current pandemic still enforcing lockdown i may have to delay any plans to move for a little longer. Still it doesnt change the excitement of starting over.
Well its been a couple of weeks of stress at university, our finals have been cancelled and no one is sure yet how things are to proceed. We haven't been told how our scores will now be calculated exactly, what the deferal deadline date is if we choose to wait from 12 - 16 weeks upto a year to defer and submit our finals, or how much we have to pay if we do decide to defer. Some people have said they have been told 75 percent of this years module fees are being asked for, but nothing offical has been sent out yet. Its a bit dissapointing that i wont finish the way i wanted to. However, i still have assignments to complete after Spring Break so I'm just getting on with it.
