    This is exactly why I don't accept calls from co-workers anymore.

My opinion is decidedly different when I'm working the swapped shift. Also, I seldom ask to swap and won't "cover" shifts (only swap) unless its a true emergency.
    I used to be more than willing to swap shifts or work for someone else, but then it started getting out of hand, so I ended up blocking my coworkers' numbers. Even when they claim to be sick, I still don't care...because as we all know, being sick is the most cliched excuse to get out of working. If my employer asks me to come in to work on my day off, I'm more likely to say "Yes," because at first glance, it will make me look good as an employee, but then again, the employer will take advantage of me just as easily, so lately I've told them I'm busy or out of town.

    I guess I'm kind of lucky in that sense. There are only 4 of us on the job that do what I do, the project manager doesn't care about our schedule as long as one of us are there. We have a "schedule" but have the freedom to move it around a bit, as long as we take care of it ourselves. The boss doesn't ask us or tell us we HAVE to work, it is up to whoever wants to switch to ask if anyone can swap.
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    I've usually been 50/50 about covering shifts. If I am free I'll happily do the extra work or swap with someone (gimme all dems moneys). During the academic year though I was saying No as much as Yes.

    Though there was this one girl who always wanted me to come 1-2 hours early so she could finish up her weekend shift early. At first I had no problems with this (aforementioned money reasons) but after a while I started to say no or change it to 30-60 mins early instead. I like my weekend downtime. She's since left so I don't have this issue anymore.

    And yes, there are such things as INTPs who overuse emoticons

    Yeah, I recently suggested to my INTP friend to tell her boss something similar, because she only gets weekends off, and the manager was repeatedly calling her in, even saying it was "mandatory," just because she couldn't find anyone else and knew my INTP would back down. UNLESS, she was out of town. I told her to start saying she was up in Maine on weekends with her sisters, that they come pick her up. So, there's no way she can just drop everything and show up in RI. It's been really effective so far, with no negative consequences.

    I just base it completely on what I feel like doing. I used to be more of a pushover. Now I just decide whether I want the extra hours and pay, and whether it's more convenient for me, and sometimes it works out. But when it doesn't, oh well. Not my problem.

    I also always let my managers' calls go to voicemail unless I know why they're calling. It's much easier when you're not on the spot.
