Sorry you're fed up - 10 hours is a long enough day anyway with a baby without parents just assuming it doesn't matter if they are late!

Just charge the overtime - it might make them think twice next time

Dont know how they pay you but I would invoice them the extra time tomorrow morning at a higher out of hours rate.

It is infuriating. I had a parent due to pickup at 5.30 one day last week. we had my dd parents evening 1st appoint 6.15. No parent at 5.45 6pm!!!

I rang and she said she should be with me by 6.30 she had been delayed at work!! No phone call to ask if it was ok for me to do the extra hour! I told her I had to be at school on 10mins and she better be here. She arranged for a friend to pick up and she did pay me the next day.

Its the way we can be taken for granted and they never think that we may have appointments as well.
