Since Thursday of last week I have had a terriable tooth ache. I woke up Friday afternoon(since I work nites) to prepare myself for work. and come to find out that I was running a fever of 101.0 and my whole left side of my jaw was swollen! so I called into work with the intention of going to the Dentist to get meds and what ever else was needed. after 4 hours of runing around cause my Dentist refused to see me. I said screw it and called work and told them that I wasn't going to be in at all. So I go home pop a handful of advil and climb into bed and cry until I go to sleep. I wake up the next day same thing swollen left jaw and this time a fever of 102.0f by this time I have gotten ahold of my brother who has a few pain relivers. so he brings me some of those. I then pop one of them and call my boss on her cell phone to tell her that I again am not going to make it into work, I then get her voice mail so I leave the message there. then I call my work and tell the girl working there that I won't be in and I don't know who will be. and that if they don't hear anything from my boss to call me and I will see what i can do. Well my co workers call me at like 5:30pm to tell me that they still haven't heard from my boss so I once again call her cell phone still no answer. so I call her home phone....no answer. so I then call my asst manager....No answer. So I call my co worker back and tell her that I haven't gotten ahold of anyone but that I will keep trying. well come 9:30 pm an hour before my shift is supose to start. I try yet again to get ahold of someone! No luck. then my boss calls me back. Tells me that she has no clue who I am and that I need to stop calling her.(she was drunk) so I then tell her who I am and where I am from and why I am calling. she then yells at me for calling her so late and that I should have called her sooner then I did. and blah blah blah then hangs up on me. Since I was sick on friday and covered my own shift by telling another co worker that I would work sunday for her if she work Friday for me. I tried to do this for sat shift also but she couldn't do it. well anyway!!! I wake up Sun am with my whole face swollen and a rash on my neck and cheaks. I am dying here!!!!!! I called my co worker at home to see if she would be willing to cover her normal shift and that I would make it up to her someother time. But she doesn't answer my calls all day long not even return my messages. I am so peeved right now!! I am in horriable pain to the point where all I can do is sit with my head not moving and not even drink or eat which I haven't done in 2 days!!!!! but yet I am here at work because co-workers and boss's won't answer their dang phones. How nice is that??? heck even one of the nurses I talk to at the hospital that I pull files for told me to just leave that she would vouge for how much pain i was in LOL anyway!!! I just had to vent on how imature and unboss like my boss is. Hope all of you have a better time then me!!!
