I feel your pain – I have good hours but my husband works at a bank, and the law is that the bank can’t be closed for more than 3 days at a time. Only one person gets vacation off at a time – so one of his bosses takes of Thanksgiving week, and the other takes off Christmas. Every. Year.

I would leave an anonymous note for your boss.  You could mention that you are “a worker” who is unhappy and that you don’t feel it’s fair AND that everyone is owed an explaination as to why she is getting preferential treatment.  Then your boss would be left wondering who is unhappy (and probably everyone else is!).  Or you could just vent to us and not stir the pot at work, but you’re probably going to be pissed again at Christmas and New Years since both are on the weekend this year.

I once worked in a department where my then boss, in his infinite wisdom, hired his step-daughter, her best friend, then his wife, then the daughter’s aunt, and in another part of the building he hired his step-son.  Needless to say, those years until I could find another job were pretty much hell as they all goofed off and procrastinated until I was the one staying late, getting in trouble for being on over-time, somtimes working 14+ hours days (it was a newspaper) to meet my deadlines… and there was no one to whom I could complain without losing my job, or at the very least, having them all come down on me, find “accidents” happening around my desk – you name it.  They’d come in around 9-10, leave for 2 hour lunches and then leave at 3 or 4 to not come back at all – don’t even ask about holidays.  The daughter would improperly handle cah form clients, hiding it in her desk to use a backup money and then forge things into the books when we were audited.  She’d get so mad at me when I’d hand in money properly and bypass her. 

She’d take off when ever she please or call in “sick” once a week and stay out for days… meanwhile, I almost got fired for refusing to make my Boyfriend or Best Friend drive an hour to his best friend’s funeral by himself, and taking off to go with him.

I was happy to give my two weeks, and later found that after many loud, swearing public arguments, the aunt quit, the daughter’s friend didn’t even give two weeks, she just quit abrubptly and didn’t come back, and the daughter was reduced to tears (yes, I don’t hink I’m evil, but I was vindicated to hear that) from having to do ALL the work I’d been doing along with the best friend.
