View Full Version : Day off but mum never told me..

10-02-2010, 09:56 PM
not to collect mindee from school, so I stood around until mindee's friends mum who works at the school came out and told me that she was going home with her daughter! and she was surprised I did not know as mindee's mum had packed a rucksack with clothes etc.. its an 8 mile trip so was a bit cross. When I contacted mum she said she forgot, and then commented.. "luckily it was her who forgot and not me as it would have been a serious matter!! ha ha" ... I hate to complain but this mum is very pedantic and working with her I know she would not forget ever, am I being paranoid in thinking she wants me to work for my pay as I will be charging for today as I am available to work and I am available tomorrow too but mindee is going to dad for half term so is being collected early!!

Her comment would have annoyed me!

I've had this happen too but at least I'm only a few minutes walk from school.
