I've gone to 11.

If you accepted every single shift your coworkers (save for two, because of family obligations) needed covered for the last 9 months, regardless of how last minute they were and if they put you into 15 hour days, and you needed three days covered so you could go to your grandmother's memorial, and no one was willing to cover those three fucking shifts, how pissed would you be, scale of 1 to 10?

Any tips for maintaining my irritation at them? I haven't yelled at anyone yet. Yet.

Is it inappropriate to try and use guilt to make my coworkers cover these shifts?

It's a fucking memorial service, it's not like I'm asking them to cover so I can go to Hawaii or something enjoyable.

ETA: We have set schedules, so no, there's not an option of saying "hey there, bosslady. Can I have this day off?" We're responsible for covering our own shifts.

(PS, thanks for validating me.)
