This is basically how my holiday season has been, on the scant one days off that I do get I usually lose them as some people call-in sick, or (my favorite) they actually forget to put someone into the schedule. I love my job, but it feels as though I have almost nothing to give during the days I come in.
I supposedly had nine days off, but I just got an email telling me I'll be coming in to cover someone starting Saturday. So I lost that as well. /sigh
This is for everyone who feels overworked and not given enough credit at their workplace.

12/27/2013 (Friday)- The Phone
cries like a child needing attention.
I peek at the red-numbered digital-clock
through gummy yellowed eyes…
…4 in the f’king morning.
No sane person wakes another,
at such an ungodly hour.
No man would inflict this
on a hated brother,
an annoying friend,
or a beloved enemy.
I answer, ignoring caller id.
Not hearing the telltale sign
of the assigned ringtone bell.
hello? hello? did I wake you?
nonono you didn’t, eye usually wake at this time. (Liar Liar)
we need you to come in, someone called-in.
cursing at the silent phone.
putting on dead grey-colored scrubs.
