I am shocked at the number of people at work who are asking for me to take shifts. I am taking an extra 5 hours which will help me out. The girl just doesn't want her shifts yet they keep giving her more shifts. Apparently they cant give me any more shifts than 28 hours yet they say I can't take any from others.

They usually have a cut off on how much you can work. Part time or full time.

The one manager told me cut off was 40 hours.So lately I have been working 28-32 hours which is fine for me. Suddenly it dropped to 22-25 hours and I need more hours 30 is perfect. A few coworkers have asked me to take shifts which get me above the 30 hours right now.

@paigea It is. I don't know how they function with so much drama in their lives.

That is what I said. A few of them don't want their shifts, and just want to have fun this summer.

@ricki_911 I work with all men and all but one are older than myself. Even the 20 year old is willing and able to work. When I worked up front though, teens were calling out left and right. Not caring one way or the other.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I work with all females and I honestly don't know how much longer I can handle. They are all full of drama, and mood swings.This past weekend was a key example of their immaturity. They are all younger but about 3 of us.

Wonder why they keep giving her more if she doesn't want to work.
