Faking things can be complicated. Personally, I love to act like I never got some ones text. For example, I used to work at a deli and grille, my boss told me I might have to work the day after prom because the girl who always worked that Monday constantly called off. I had already requested that day off, two months prior. I told him that if he needs me to work, I need to know 2 days before, or else I couldn’t work. This was constantly happening, I was the only employee to never call off and I worked there the longest out of everyone. I got a text that evening asking where I was, but no one told me I was working. The people I worked for were good people personally, but when it came to business they were terrible. I never once received a paycheck on time, I went a month without being paid once, we never received pay stubs, so not once did I know how much money I got taken out for taxes, or how much money I was being paid. Schedules were also made last minute every week. The bosses would always talk to customers and other employees about us. That day, I had 5 people call and text me, but yet no one told me I was working. I came in the next day, got tons of crap thrown at me, and even had a customer tell me that what I did was wrong and that my boss was a good guy. Don’t get me wrong, he was a good guy, but very immature. If someone wants you to work, they need to call you ahead of time, not one hour after the shift starts. I told them I needed a two-day notice but never received it. The day after when I went in, at the end of my shift, I collected my tips and quit my job. I felt like I was the only one who cared about my job. I was told I was the first employee in years to ever be constantly smiling and happy, I was the only girl who cleaned and stocked everything required. I never received my last paycheck, and I didn’t bother to ask.
