Ok sort of took part of that phrase from Gandalf but since I ain't a powerful mage, I have to use my wits. I'm starting this thread to serve as a reminder to my path of learning to not be taken advantage of.
Lets start with today. Co-worker said that they needed to change a shift with me because they had a prior commitment. Funny thing that every single time they have a late shift and I have an early one, they suddenly have some "commitment" that they can't just skip. Well I say, let them miss it or look for someone else to change shifts with. I'm tired of always being the nice guy and covering for everyone but then noone can ever cover for me when I have troubles.
