So I am just wondering if I'm the only one surprised by something that happened at work recently.
I have been temping for a company for the past 5-6 weeks and my normal hours are 9-5 with 30 mins lunch.
So I've had a fair bit going on with all sorts of appointments for my kids, but they have been understanding and accommodating.
I've worked my butt off learning the role and really trying my best to learn new things and help people out, I have made a big effort here.
Anyway, last week I had a scare with my little one where the paed who did a check up was concerned about his floppiness and suggested we get a blood test to rule out muscular dystrophy. Needless to say I was stressed.
Anyway I went into work at 9 as normal but DH decided to take DS for the blood test that morning as we just wanted answers. So I ended up having a bit of a stressed out cry at work and spoke to my manager who was fine with me leaving early.
Anyway, Friday comes along and I didn't know what to put on my time sheet, I wanted to do the right thing and left that particular day blank with a post it note saying 'not sure what to put for Wednesday as was only here for around 50 mins'
So she brought it back and says I didn't sign out so she doesn't know what time I left, so suggested I put around 30 mins. So I checked my phone as I had rung hubby shortly before I left to see if he was already on his way and that was at 9:48 so I told my manager and she says 'well that's not 50 minutes then, is it'
I was honestly quite shocked. We are literally talking about TWO MINUTES here...
I would never put more time than I worked, in fact, often I leave at 5:07 or 5:22 etc and I would round it to either 5, or 5:20.
I never thought anyone would be so weird about 2 minutes...
It literally works out to around 44 CENTS per minute...
I was so annoyed and shocked that I just said, you know what, I can't be bothered, I'll leave Wednesday blank. So I lost out on around $13 just because I was so irritated that anyone could be so picky over 2 mins...
Am I the weird one here?
