I have to agree with gunslinger. As a former boss for many many years, I highly recommend that you talk to him/her in person. Generally it is best that NO personnel related matters be discussed via email accept for grievance type matters where you want a permanent written record...

Gunslinger, my boss is never present. He lives about an hour away and comes in maybe once every two weeks, sometimes less. The co-owner that is there does not deal with scheduling, so unfortunately sitting down with the boss isn't an option. He doesn't use a proper phone, I can text him (but he'll forget about it) but to call him it goes through his skype and never connects. He's not exactly easy to get a hold of, lol!

Joe, my timidness is not carrying over into job performance at all. Unfortunately I'm the politest girl there when I'm on, and my coworkers are happy to make me deal with the 'difficult' regulars that come in. Up until this semester we had way too many people who wanted full time hours, but now everyone is going back to school and somebody else has quit, so there are bound to be openings. And as I said above, contacting him in person is NOT an option, he himself is a very 'technical obsessed' person, attached to his email all day long. The only way he'll remember something is if he has the email in his hand, or maybe the time slip but as I said... he likely wont be in to pick it up until sometime mid-month. With him it's good to have a 'permanent written record' of absolutely everything. He is the sort who needs to have everything in order and written down, but wont do it himself because he's a little neurotic and INCREDIBLY forgetful.
