Day 161: I Am Mortified

I am mortified: Believe it or not, with all those cocktails and desserts and sitting arounds, I put on three kilos while I was away. I could just about fall over dead with crying right now. This means I am back to square one. I still have twenty-five kilos to go. I am almost so upset that I think the only possible solution is new scales—the old ones must be wrong!

I am mortified: Letting people go on holiday and then making them come back straight into a twelve hour shift is, frankly, irresponsible. From a 'health of your employees' point of view, I truly believe that the first four shifts back from holidays should build to the full twelve hours. Three hours first day, six the next, nine the next and then onto twelve. Of course, the employee shouldn't be disadvantaged. They should recieve twelve hours pay for each day regardless. Although, if it came down to it, I think I would still prefer the time over the money. She says now! But later?
