the seasons summer

Sorry in advance for the length, I need to vent but writing is not my best skill lol.

I’m a manager at a very small restaurant/café (normally like 3 employees max). I only started in June of last year, and got pregnant in September, however I never missed a single shift, despite the terrible morning sickness to the point of not being able to move at some times and laying on the bathroom floor, but I always stayed until I was told to go home lol.

Anyway, my boss (the owner) hired a new girl for the busy summer season, who is also newly pregnant. She, however, has already called out 3 of her 7 shifts in her 2 weeks there, and still doesn’t know how to make the most basic of sandwiches or drinks. When she started she was doing so well, and its gone downhill so fast that we had to start looking for other people to try and convince to apply.

Like, why apply if you’re going to be so lazy? I’m going to give birth soon and I am running more than you and they will need someone to help them in May when I’m on leave.
