I am so annoyed! I teach Zumba at the Y and I have to wear their uniform shirt when I teach. It sucks, but I've gotten over having to wear it. I have ONE shirt and have had the same ONE shirt for over a year. Even when I was teaching 6 classes a week MINIMUM, I only had ONE shirt. Well, said shirt is now much too tight. I went to my boss over a month ago and said, "I really need a new shirt of a different style because this one is starting to get snug and I know that soon it isn't going to fit." She says ok, I try on some shirts and she was going to order me a super huge men's shirt that I can tie on the side and loosen as I get bigger. She tells me she will have it in a week. Two weeks go by, no shirt. I ask about it and she says, "oh, I should be able to have it this Friday or next." I say ok, assuming she probably forgot to order it. Two more weeks go by, still no shirt. It's now been a month and I am stretched to the max in the one I have. I ask again. I get the same "this Friday or next" speech. Finally this past Friday she tells me my shirt will be there on Monday. I tell her I will come early before my class on Tuesday to pick it up. I get there and she is nowhere to be found, so I texted her. I don't hear back until after class (good thing I brought the other one with me!) and she tells me they sent the wrong one. Ughhhh. So now, she is going to TRY to exchange it on Friday, but with the way it's been going I'm not holding my breath. I seriously don't know if I can squeeze into the one I have for another week, so I really hope she does get it on Friday. I feel extra huge and unattractive in a shirt that is way too tight. Not to mention uncomfortable. It rides up on my stomach when I teach. Ughh, so annoying! My husband told me to just wear a different shirt, but a) I don't have any to wear because all my non Y workout shirts are now too tight as well and b) I'm not a rule breaker, even though I feel like in this case it would be justified!

I know, right? I just don't understand why it took so long to get it and I was so glad to finally have it, and then it was the wrong one. I could have cried. Hopefully she will be able to get it on Friday though, which means I would only have to wear the other one one more time. Fingers crossed.
Honestly I would go out and get a new one on your own and if anyone says anything just explain that you have waited over a month to get one and are still waiting and you can not preform your job in the original shirt anymore. Its not like you haven't given them way more then enough time to get you a new one. Not to mention you shouldn't have had to go this far with only 1 shirt either.
It would be one thing if they provided you, in a timely manner, a new shirt but in your circumstances, I would totally break rules...I'm a rule breaker anyways, so easy for me to say...BUT still, totally unacceptable on your boss' end...so I wouldn't' feel bad wearing something that is comfortable.
