One of my biggest pet peeves: Chronic absenteeism.
"I'm Sick" ... "I'm having a family problem today" ... "I'm stuck in traffic out of town" ... "I just can't make it in"
These are just some of the excuses 1 employee has given me in the last month.
I can't take it anymore. They work today and so do I.
We will be having a little heart to heart in which I will give them a final warning:
Miss another shift, unexcused, and there is no need to bother coming back for any more shifts because you will no longer work here.
But it's not fair to the rest of the team that shows up for work everyday, even when they don't want to, and has to pick up the extra work because someone else is chronically absent.
Hopefully they get the message.
