Coming Early vs. Coming Late

I know, it sounds dirty, but I’m referring to what time you show up for work. I usually show up at least ten minutes early to any job. It’s just how I’m wired. In the last year I have been late twice. Once by seven minutes and once by fifteen. I have also only called out twice in the last year. I think that’s a much better average than everyone else. My problem is I show up on time and repeatedly get kept late, even when I don’t need to be. If there are enough closers there, having them sit there and shoot the shit while I’m doing deliveries past when I was supposed to leave, it can be very annoying. I make plans around my schedule. So I’m there on time, like I should, but I can never make plans for a set time after work, because I have no idea if they’re going to let me leave on time. That sucks. That’s really annoying, and it’s incentive to not show up on time. What I wind up doing is when someone calls out sick and they call me to see if I can cover, I say no. I have plans. Stop making me stay when it’s past my scheduled work time and maybe I’ll start covering shifts. Until then, kick rocks.
