    Its my last day at work today as have 24 days hols to take (start mat leave on 11th May).
    Have had food poisining since Thursday (still went in) but had to have friday off work as was toooo ill, and when i let them know had a really nasty text from my line manager (only been there a month and is a cow!!) saying stuff like i am out of order as it was her day off and no one would cover, also that i was taking advantage as i have had 4 days off alltogether since being preg.
    She also then tried saying that she didnt know about it and that i hadnt told her WTF??!! so how did you know to send me the bitchy message??

    I know when i go in today no one will even say good luck let alone have a card or anything signed by everyone (which im not materialistic the good luck or goodbye would be fine!!) but *i will go in, work, do everything as everyone is lazy and NOTHING would have been done, then go home*

    So anyway i was planning on taking some little cakes into work today as have worked there a while and get on with all the people that work out there really really well, so have made them (LOTS of them lol) and dont know whether to take them with me or not??!!

    Sorry for the rant it just does my brain in!! lol

    What have all you girls last days at work been like?? have seen some posted but cant member (preggers brain and all lol)

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:hug:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    People at work can be insensitive for sure.
    I got married August and didn't receive anything from anybody, except those that were invited to the wedding. I was rather upset, considering I had donated repeatedly when their big events happened throughout the past 8 yrs.
    I lost my job in October due to downsizing but visit the office regularly. Doubt I will receive anything for the baby either, but was glad to hear that another co-worker who just went on Mat leave and now had her baby girl did receive a baby shower.

    As for your supervisor... If she didn't want to take the responsiblilty of covering shifts for people who are ill, then she shouldn't be a supervisor!!! It comes with the territory.

    Take the cakes in... show them you are the better person!!! :>
