I've never had a problem with my stylist's availability.

RE: Ranting corner
My work email a few weeks ago had my holiday work days listed as Thanksgiving and New Years Eve, not Christmas.

I go to my schedule to sign up for November and December and notice I'm scheduled for the ENTIRE FUCKING WEEKEND of Thanksgiving. I'm also scheduled for December 23 and 24 - On night shift. Meaning Christmas Eve morning and Christmas morning I will still be at work until AT LEAST 0715. Then it's still a 2+ hour drive home after working all night - not feasible.

I went to the supervisor that handles scheduling today and her list had me for thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. This blows ass. I had to work both last year.

The only Christmas I've had off since I became a nurse was 2 years ago - and my husband was on call. He got called out as our son was opening his first Christmas gift. That was the closest I've been to having a Christmas with my husband since we got married 8 years ago.

Christmas on the 23rd or January 3rd(when my husband and I did ours last year thanks to conflicting work schedules) is not the same as Christmas on the 25th. My husband wasn't even paid extra for it - it's just considered "banked holiday" that can be used at a later date like vacation pay. Our son is finally old enough to understand the calendar and will know that we are celebrating on the wrong day - that or I miss it altogether Sadcryface.

I ought to be paid time and a half or double time for this shit. Fuck $4 an hour extra. An entire holiday shift of extra pay will buy me one MAC lipstick and MAYBE an eyeshadow.

I'd rather get fisted by a man with big hands.

Nope. I won't be able to buy both a lipstick and an eyeshadow with that pay. Total bullshit.

As long as you can buy food, nothing else is important.

Wrong. If I'm working for food and nothing else, I'll go bag groceries. A lot less responsibility and stress, and I'd get to sit down at the dinner table with my family on holidays.

Missing important events should come with compensation. $48 is not compensation. That buys a family dinner at Cracker Barrel.
