Elaine Posted August 10, 2008 Share Posted August 10, 2008 I teach three classes per week at our local gym and have done so for the past two years. Recently we had a staff meeting and our group fitness co-ordinator said that because so many classes have been getting cancelled, he was cracking down with a zero tolerance policy. The result of pulling a "no-show" was the loss of the class or termination. I honestly didn't give it much thought because in 8 years of teaching group fitness, I have never not shown up to teach and I always get my classes covered. So fast forward to this past weekend. The boys and I were up in NJ visiting family and before I left I got my classes covered. Sunday morning the person subbing my class calls me to say that she can't teach the 4:00 class. I am really irritated with her for doing this because once you agree to teach a class, it becomes your responsibility to cover it. So now I am scrambling to get the class covered. I called all of the yoga instructors and no one called me back. So I called my supervisor and he never called me back. I called the gym, told the girl at the front desk the sitaution and asked her to hang a sign on the door saying the class was cancelled. I thought nothing else of it until today when I went to teach. After the babysitter arrived I head to the gym. I arrived there to find out that my supervisor took the class away from me. I can only assume it's because of the events from last Sunday. I am standing at the front desk, with four members, completely dumbfounded! And, I might add, embarassed. My super never even called me to ask what happenend. Never acknowledged that I called him to solicit his help for cryin' out loud! Never did the courteous and professional thing which would have been to call me to tell me he was taking the class. I called him as soon as I got home and he has yet to call me back. I was polite and calm when I called him but the longer he avoids me, which is his M.O., the angrier I am getting. Should I wait until tomorrow and call him again? Or should I go over his head? I am also annoyed that I paid a babysitter for nothing!:glare: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
