I have a second job doing a couple shifts in a pub. They asked me to work this Sunday to which I agreed. I was supposed to start at 2pm.
I got a call from my dad (who is currently on vacation) at 12pm saying the kennels they had put their dogs in had called. The kennels had informed my dad before he went away that they were currently facing some licensing issues because they don't keep their dogs in cages, they let them sleep on sofas and beds. The kennel thought they might be able to get the issue resolved and so took my dad's dogs on anyway. However they called my dad and told him the license was not renewed so until they can sort out fitting cages into the premises, they have to have everyone come and collect their dogs.
My dad was on holiday in Barcelona so obviously couldn't come and get them, they tried to call his girlfriend's relatives but they were all out (those who could drive). My brother can't drive, so it fell to me to get the dogs.
I also had to stay with them once I had collected them as one of the dogs is quite elderly and cannot be left alone in case he falls down the stairs trying to get up them or needs to go to the toilet.
They called and asked me, and as this is my second job and they don't seem to mind when I turn shifts down, I figured so long as I told them what happened they will be okay. So I texted my manager explaining the problem and headed to my car.
I got to the kennels (about 45 minute drive away) - and noted no response from my boss. I tried calling and left a voicemail saying "Hey, it's 2pm now and I'm not sure if you have seen my message as you didn't reply. I don't want you to think I just haven't shown up so tried calling you to speak with you and make sure everything is okay". No response to the voicemail. I think okay, maybe work is busy. She might come back to me tomorrow morning before they open. Still nothing.
Just sent another message an hour ago and still nothing. I'm a little concerned my boss has seen her arse about the situation and is just choosing to ignore me. It's not really a huge concern as it's not my full time job so it's not critical to me, but I'd rather still have the job to save up towards Christmas, or if she has really taken offence and decided to sack me I'd rather she was adult and professional about it and told me rather than just ignoring my messages. Am I in the wrong here?
