I know that it is a big fault of mine, but I don’t have a lot of patience when it comes to my kids. I have patience with my kids, but not with people who don’t respect them. I had been working at a marijuana dispensary for a couple years. The hours were flexible, which worked well with my young children, and I pretty much set my own schedule. The one thing I would not tolerate was if my job had to take precedence over my family. Last month I was promoted to manager of the local marijuana dispensary. I was thrilled until my son got sick. There was a huge sale going on over the weekend. I checked with my assistant manager to make sure she felt comfortable taking care of the marijuana dispensary. I explained about my son, and I even pulled a couple more employees in to help out with the sale. The store had only been open for two hours when I got a phone call from the owner. She was angry that I was not at the marijuana dispensary on one of the biggest sale days of the year. I told her I had left the marijuana dispensary in excellent hands and well staffed, but she didn’t want to hear it. She thought my obligation was to the marijuana dispensary. I told her my obligation was to my three-year-son who was burning up with a fever. If she was insistent I leave him and come to work, she could permanently take me off the schedule.
