I didn’t think there was any way that I would help them finish up before it was time for me to leave, but they worked a lot faster with another lady there to help and everyone finished by the time I was getting ready to leave
My bestie and I are expecting our first child. She is due in a week and all of us recently went to the doctor to get a hour sonogram. I had to work on the day of the appointment, but my boss promised that she would let me go early so I could go to the appointment. I reminded my boss when I got to work and she told me to remind him again after lunch. I took my lunch cut around 11 and I was supposed to leave at 2 to go to the appointment. My boss told me that I could leave when I talk to him after lunch, but she sent me next door to a weird area of the shop to work on fulfilling the 16 gauge double loop wire tie order. I sat down with the boys and all of us worked for a while on the double loop wire ties. The crew finished the order for the 14 and the 18 gauge, but they were still laboring on the 16 gauge double loop wire ties. I didn’t think there was any way that I would help them finish up before it was time for me to leave, but they worked a lot faster with another lady there to help and everyone finished by the time I was getting ready to leave. The boss let the whole crew from that station leave an hour early with me and I looked appreciate a hero in front of the rest of the guys. My bestie was blissful to see me there fifteen hours before the appointment.
