Spawnie's Life as a Retail Slut

I got my hours back.
I go into work today, to do my new job duty as "Crew Chief". Things went well, even though it was cold and rainy/snowy. I got to drive around on the forklift. Vroooom Vroooom. Anyway, I was scheduled to work from 7 am until 5 pm today, but my warehouse crew is wonderful, and we were done early. At 1pm, the general manager comes into work, back from her week long vacation. She looks at next weeks schedule, and blows her top. She called me into the office and asked what was going on.
I told her, that I had no idea. She asked me if I was taking a vacation, or going back to ChicagoLand for TurkeyDay, and I told her no. She then told me, that I'm going to be working 40 hours this week, and that she doesn't know what happened to the schedule, but that'll she'll take care of it.
She was pissed. She was all upset, that the sucky people who work there, were scheduled for more hours then I was. She fixed it though. She rocks. I also talked to her today, about when Ophelia would be starting, and she told me next week.
So I'm now back at my 40 hours, and all is well again. Yippie !

1 + 1 = 3 ?????
Hmmmmm, can you help me figure out how this adds up. ???
I give up, my preferred day off, which is Mondays, to go into work and help them out. Monday is a warehouse day, and the current "Crew chief" is as lazy as the day is long. So they ask me, to change my day off, to take over as crew chief, and I agreed to it. So after work today, I pick-up my schedule for next week to find out, that I'm only working 3 days next week, 24 hours. Hmmmmm ?
I guess this is how they thanks me, for helping them out, by giving me less hours. Wow, that's gratitude for ya. Hey Mike, can you come in and help us out, by switching your schedule around ? Sure, just make sure I get Tuesdays off. Not a problem, we'll just schedule you to work Monday, Saturday and Sunday. Thanks, Jerks!
My boss only gets one chance to fix my schedule, if it isn't fixed tomorrow, I'm going to call the district manager, and request a transfer, to a different store. The new girl, even has more hours next week then me. Yay !
So if my schedule can't get fixed, and I can't transfer to another store, I'm just going to find a different full-time job, and just make this one, my part-time job. Fuck them. I could always fire-bomb that store, but that won't get me anymore hours.
