You would think in this world's economy, anyone and everyone would welcome overtime (to a point, anyways). Well, not my coworker. I'm already working overtime, but he's being offered an extra shift and he's looking to turn it down (he says he has to wait to see what the supervisor says if he can work the extra shift). He has a day shift (we work after hours) that he works, but it's unnecessary because there is already enough people during the day shift. What the hell, dude? Just say yes! We (employees) watch our own schedule. So, unless a very big scheduling conflict arises, we don't go to our supervisor to check on every little thing for shift/schedule changes. Dude, your priorities should mainly be after hours, not day shift!!! That's what you were hired to work.
Why are some people's professional priorities mixed up?

Maybe his supervisor honestly frowns on people working extra shifts on the same day. It's been shown that people tend to lose productively and make more errors after a certain point in workdays. But squeezing out a few less efficient hours seems to be more cost-effective than hiring a fresh new body to work.
I'm on salary making 34K (not much in my area), so I work overtime and don't get paid... worst of both words!0
