Everyone that works in the healthcare system is well aware how demanding it is – especially during the ongoing pandemic. However, we’re in the midst of the holiday season, and everyone wants to enjoy their holidays as much as possible.
Of course, everyone wants to spend some quality time with their loved ones, which is why coworkers take turns in covering holiday shifts.
Well, one Reddit user decided to take it to the Am I The A-hole subreddit and ask if she was in the wrong for refusing to give up her free days during the holidays just because she’s childfree.
As it turns out, the 23-year-old woman shared that she worked last Christmas (the 23rd, 24th, 25th, and 26th), meaning this year she’s scheduled off for Christmas. However, many of her parent coworkers asked her to change shifts because she’s childfree and ‘doesn’t have a ‘real’ family’ to celebrate with, and she declined – saying that she wants to spend Christmas with her parents and loved ones.
However, she now wants to know if she’s in the wrong for doing that, especially after she noticed how her coworkers got annoyed and frustrated. Check out the story for yourself, and decide who is in the wrong here.
Rather expectedly at this point, most Redditors sided with her and said that she’s absolutely not in the wrong here, and she’s not obligated to take everyone’s turn just because she’s childfree.
