: So I was defacto-organiser of a 4 artist bar gig tonight. One hour
: before the gig starts, one of the artists (who had already done
some
: legwork) cancels for a good reason. We scramble to get a
replacement,
: who luckily could do it. 4 minutes later the first calls back,
saying
: she can now do it. I went with my replacement artist, who was
: scrambling to make it on short notice. I am planning on
compensating
: the original artist for the work already done, but i am hating that
: she's probably pissed, and resenting that i'm losing sleep about
: being put in this position. But it was a really fun gig! WooHoo!
: Any feedback out there?


A a manager at Michaels i have lots of experience of help calling out
sick .in retail you don't show up don't get paid(the employees know
this), that is all there is to it. Cold hearted yes, but necessary .
She called back: tough luck. I would have said I don't need you now
i have a replacement artist on the way. I'll consider you for another
gig in the near future. Don't loose sleep over it. this senario of
calling out sick happens almost every day in my store.
AS long as you had fun at the gig.
BRight Blessings, Christine
