I am the supervisor of quite a few people at work. its retail so many of them are young, some very old. I'm having trouble not killing this one girl who is getting on my last nerve.
She is young, around 19. She is married (fine, I was married at that age too, i'm not gonna project my horrible experience onto her and assume she made the same mistake I made) and in general a nice person. The problem i'm having is this: She thinks she is pregnant. Normally this wouldn't affect me at all. The thing is, she has told me she has taken 8 pregnancy tests over the course of 2 months and all came back negative. She also says the doctors won't x-ray her to see if she really is pregnant because if she is, it might hurt the baby. THEN she says that she has had many many miscarriages. And after all that she refuses to lift anything that "Might be" anywhere near 10lbs or above.
Ok so...having used those pregnancy tests before, I know they are 99% correct, and I also know that even if the doctors didnt want to perform even 1 x-ray (which would almost definately not hurt the baby) they could do an ultrasound. I don't want to be a b*tch, but I don't believe she is pregnant at all, nor do I believe she has gone to as many doctors appointments as she says she has. When asked what her doctors name was and where he was located she said she couldn't remember. I am having to get the other associates to do her work for her on the off chance that she really IS pregnant and is telling the truth. She also asks to go to the bathroom every half an hour. We have an 8 month pregnant woman working there who only asks about once a day, sometimes she doesn't ask at all because everyone gets 3 breaks a day spaced evenly throughout the shift.
Am I being a total b*tch or are my suspicions relevant?
