Hi. I work for a supply agency and have for the past 2 years. I'm very lucky with the work I get from them - have had two placements - one a term and another a term and a half. I also have regular work from one particular school (am there either full time or at the least 3 or 4 days a week). Today was a rare occasion I wasn't pre-booked so I said I was available for work. Got a call around 8:25 and was told I had work. I live in Wigan and the lady from the agency said the work was in Manchester/Trafford. I said it was quite a way to travel at that time of day in traffic. Would have gone if pre-booked because would have set out way earlier! The agency said they were desperate and if I didn't take it there wouldn't be anyone else and they would give me an extra £5. I reluctantly said yes. However... After coming off the phone I put the postcode into google maps to find out the school was actually in Stockport and it was 28.3 miles from where I live! I felt this was too far a distance to travel so rang back to cancel. They tried to get me to keep the booking, offering me an additional £10 for the day, but by this point I was so annoyed with the agency being 'economical with the truth' about where the school was and the fact that at 8:30 I was being asked to do almost a 60 mile round trip I said no. Now I have the usual feelings of guilt, that I've let them down, that they won't think I'm reliable etc. As it turns out I've got an afternoon booking now at a school much closer. What would you have done? Thanks for any input.
