    So this Saturday I was supposed to go to the barn and have a lesson for the first time in awhile (life got crazy, cousins wedding etc.) but apparently I was scheduled to work....ummm WHAT!?! Nobody told me! My assistant manger called me 20 minutes before I was supposed to be there? She said I'd switched shifts with someone else but earlier she said I couldn't switch because I was doing a food safe thing on the shift I was trading. She also said the other person should have told me even though we had to check with her first she's the manager she should be the one telling me she confirmed shift changes! And why would you call TWENTY MINUTES BEFORE I WAS MEANT TO SHOW UP!? Uggggghhhh! Okay rant over.

    I wouldn't have gone if I had been in your situation, it is up to your boss / manager / supervisor to give you at least a days notice... Unfortunately not going along with them could have lost you a job. Definitely a tough situation.

    I almost didn't but realized I needed to for my jobs sake it's a good job and I'm good at it. I was so angry though! Like in tears I havent jumped since I fell and I knew missing a lesson would just set me back. I WANT to jump I just need o get past the fall and "leave my emotions in the cross ties" as my coach suggests. I know Lucy will keep me safe and knows what she's doing. I love her so much she's so patient wirth my shenanigans and that's why she gets a carrot or apple or treat after almost every lesson

    PS I rode yesterday and had an awesome lesson! Couldn't even tell Id been off a couple weeks! Lucy was amazing as per usual and loved her carrot (don't you just love that face they make when they know they're about to get a treat?)

    Yes I do love that face they make, as if to gently imply HURRY UP please...
    I hope you get to have your lesson soon, work gets in the way at times!
