I work in a pool teaching water classes, and I have a fairly nice boss who means well; however, she is very forgetful.
For example, once a year the pool is closed to be cleaned for a week, but I only found out when the members/public did. I was (hopefully understandably) upset as I generally like to be notified of these major closes in advance, but when I confronted my boss about she insisted she told me and said that there were signs up everywhere, and didn't seem to get that was not the point - I could have scheduled a vacation or planned to sub at another location or offered land based classes or what have you.
Another example: there's a lifeguard who always falls asleep in the chair working the early shift. Obviously this is normally grounds for dismissal, but while members and coworkers along with myself have all brought it to her attention, she has done nothing (apparently, the kid is a family member).
The problem is, I like my job, but this is untenable - someone could sue over the sleeping lifeguard, especially if someone got hurt, and I could get caught in the aftermath. Upper management has done nothing to help. Is there anything I can do to retain my job while improving the management situation?
