I'm there to cover others' shifts, but when I need a day off, no one is there to cover mine. What should I do?
My family is coming into town and I really need that day off.

stop letting people walk all over you

I don't think that's fair. I don't let people walk all over me. But if I am available I have no reason to say "no."

but, you see, that's how you end up being taken advantage of... you have to learn how to say no.

Well, turns out I got someone to trade with me. So it's all good.

just tell them you're taking the day off

Tell the people who's shifts you covered that you won't be covering any more of their shifts unless someone helps you out with this.

Take a laxative on your way to work so when you get there, it should be just in time so that everyone can see how bad you need that day off :)

That's not an option with the kind of work that I do.

Next time someone needs a shift covered say you will do it only in exchange for them working on the day off you need. That way you get what you need off and people wont take advantage of you.

That's sound advice. Thank you.
