So I called into work today asking about my schedule. The manager said 5pm I start. I get here, and it turns out he had the wrong nick! There are two nick w's, and I dont work today! Has this ever happened to you at your place of employment?

Sort of. When I was a teenager, I had a part time job. One day nobody shows up for one position, someone ask the manager and he gets he staff list and confirms the first name. Then he calls his home and get the parents. They say he left and it ends

..up they call the police to report him missing. Then suddenly we realize that he had moved me to that position without telling me, the other guy had the same first name and they had actually called my parents. Big mess, my parents worried etc.

I would just email or text my manager. With my full name coming up. Not that there's another Kim. But I have my monthly schedule in my phone calendar so that's never arisen.

I can't think of any place where it has. I haven't worked on a schedule since I worked in a hospital lab 1975-1985, and I was the one who made the schedule then, so I would have been calling me.
