I agree, but in this situation no rules was broken. So why should op take the shaft for it? You want me to come in for work, you tell me. Don't tell my dog, maid, neighbour, friends, or anybody else. If something important comes up at work, do I tell the boss' wife and expect her to tell him?

On top of that, what are the circumstances behind them calling her in to work? Was she aware she was supposed to be on call? Does her job description actually include coming in at the drop of a hat? Had they told her that they may have to call her in and she was like, "Ok, cool, just give me a call."? If not than she can't even be in trouble for not coming in because if she wasn't scheduled to be there, and was not actively scheduled to on call, than her coming in because they needed help would be a purely voluntary thing. It's not a no show if you weren't originally supposed to be there to begin with.

Why didn’t your boyfriend relay the message?

Is he really your boyfriend or are you some creepy stalker chick who has made this guy your emergency contact in a lame attempt to get him to call you?

More likely he was occupied & didn't see the text in time. Maybe he was at work where he has to leave his cell in his locker, or he was asleep. But sure, let's kick OP while they're down.

I once got chastised for not coming in on time after my manager had changed my schedule. Turns out he changed it but didn’t bother to inform me of her change. He was annoyed when I didn’t apologize. 🙄

This sucks. I once had a boss who didn't let me check the schedule because the managers were having a meeting in the office so he read it to me. He read it wrong saying I didn't work until Monday. So I went to a friend's house for the weekend and this was before cell phones were everywhere.

He called my house and got my parents to ask why I wasn't at work. I called on Sunday and talked to him "Why didn't you show up for work Saturday and Sunday?" "You told me I wasn't on the schedule until tomorrow" "Oh yeah I did say that well in that case since it's my fault I am only going to count both days as one occurrence"

Yeah the asshole still counted it against me after admitting I wasn't at fault.
