    I'm bumped back to inside PM. I asked for tonight off and now my On Road sup wants to know why I need off all of a sudden. My PM sup has no problem with it. My on road wanted to talk to me last night to find out why I wanted off, then he avoided me and left before I could talk to him. Question is do I call him or just call in? It's personal stuff I need off for
  2. Tell him to mind his own damn business.

    That's exactly what I was thinking, who gives a crap why I asked off. They've been really picky with drivers who have had to bump back about needing time off. Like I said I should only have to tell them it's for personal reasons.

    Sups only ask why you want off to try and get you to feel bad about it or decide it’s not worth the effort.

    Why you need time off is actually nobody’s damn business.

    He avoided you and left?

    Teach him a lesson, bang in and take three.

    Called in and totally grilled about needing off. Like I can plan some personal issues around work. Wtf. It's night sort. 3 hrs with a list of 15 that be called in. Gave over 2 hrs notice. Make it sound like the place won't run.

    I always figured if they were going to give me grief for 1, might as well make it worth the grief, take 3. They quickly figured out not to bother with giving me grief at all.

    So your on road has no work for you and you bump in to the night sort to get hours. Now he think it's any if his buisness why you don't want to work that day?

    Tell him to blow you.
