I am struggling w/ a policy at work about how we put in our time and make up for time missed. It seems to me that this policy is unfairly applied on a case-by-case basis where one person seems to be able to abuse it, but when I try to make up my time by not taking a lunch, I get my butt chewed.
I am really frustrated with this. I try to make up my time in this manner so as not to have to us my PTO (I’m trying to save up for maternity leave in December). Instead of calling me or waiting till we’re able to meet face-to-face, my boss addresses this matter passively via email. It seems so petty I’m not even going to address it with her.
My problem is that I know how to cheat the time clock - everybody does, but I’m not sure how many people actually do. For instance, you can be gone for 37 minutes and it only counts as a 30 min lunch; gone for 52 min and it only counts as a 45 min lunch, etc. I abuse this on a daily basis and esp. with what has transpired today, I’m finding it very hard not to abuse this situation to my advantage.
Please pray with me to be truly sorry for cheating in this manner and despite how my employer chooses to handle things, pray with me that instead of retaliating in such a passive-agressive manner that I will earnestly try to be honest with my time. I need to make it to confession this week, just praying for true sorrow for this sin and to be able to confess it (I never have, it has never even occurred to me to do so).
Thanks so much. Hoping my memory of this insult passes quickly and I’m able to let it go.
