Did you go to school for costume design or are historical costumes just a hobby?

Just a hobby.  As much as I would love to go to school for it, my desired career path is in the field of psychology.

I tried to tell my boss on Monday that I wanted more training on a game that im set to deal tonight. He said ok well train you this week. When that never happened I went to the union rep despite us not having contracts yet she said she spoke to someone in hr and that id be dealing another game tonight. I came in for the other game to find out im still dealing the first game I dont know. Plus one of the supervisors told me I shouldnt use the union rep and to deal with the problem in house. Well I fucking did to begin with and that got me no where. Now this guy wajts me to talk to the boss of day shift to inform my boss (who I talked to on Mondays about me not dealing and hes the one who said hed train me this week and didnt.)
I wanted to keep this quiet and not make a big deal and just be like dont schedule me for this game. Im starting to get really pissed that I have to look like a three year old throwing a temper tantrum over this.
Im trying to worj with the company. All I asked for is more training not to avoid the game all together.
