What can I do about this situation at work?
This week, I had today and tomorrow off. Today, I got an 8 am text from a new coworker saying he was sick and if I could come in. I said no that I was busy and texted my boss the same. He said no problem. Tonight around 9:30, my boss texted me again saying sorry to bother you again but can you come in tomorrow? Another coworker needs to be somewhere tomorrow.
I felt guilty so I texted back and said yes and he said thanks. I don't want to go in on my days off which they ask me for frequently. I also work weekdays and every weekend day and sometimes stay later during my shifts.
I ended up texting back my boss back and said sorry that I actually had to pick someone up tomorrow. He did not reply.
I feel like it is a lot of nerve to ask me to come in on my days off. I feel like I am being taken advantage of, what can I do about this?
