I just got back from a funeral.
SHUT THE FUCK UP.
I didn’t want to be here today.
SHUT THE FUCK UP.
I come in and you just don’t stop talking.
SHUT THE FUCK UP.Continue reading
I failed to give you the 30 cents per hour raise you get as of today.
I would rather give you the fucking $7.20 to shut you the fuck up.
I think I will.
I have no intention of redoing payroll.
Fuck you – here is your fucking $7.20!
FORK NO I am not paying you overtime for yesterday!
You said that you needed to take time off today for a Dr. appointment for your child. Just a couple hours, no worries – no problem – everyone’s kid get sick and has to go to the Dr.
So you stayed yesterday to be sure things were caught up because it’s the busiest time of the month, the end of the month, and you know it. Sorry you haven’t been here long enough to get time off, but no worries, I was going to give the the two or three hours you needed and still pay you. I honestly thought you were trying to be a good employee and stay and be sure your work was done and you wouldn’t be holding anyone up. BUT NO! Now you want overtime. You said, “Well, since you said you would pay me and not to worry, I saw an opportunity to get some overtime.”Continue reading
Job: Medical Transcriptionist
My job is listening to what the local doctors have to say about a case and then typing it up, editing it if I need to. I expect this kind of bad diction from small children, not supposedly intelligent adults! They mumble and slur their words together, they speak way too quietly, their favorite word seems to be ‘um’, there are way too many long awkward pauses, they don’t seem to know what ‘however’ ‘otherwise’ or ‘of note’ mean (they just throw them into a sentence at random), they are crazily redundant, give me drugs without units of dosage (like hydrocholorothiazide 25; is it mg, mcg, or g?), they mix up the words in their sentences, the pediatricians keep calling the patient’s parents ‘mom’ and ‘dad’, and then you’ve got the guys with accents so thick that you have no idea what they’re saying, and they don’t even try to make things easier! I mentioned this to my boss, and she says that the majority of them just don’t care because they aren’t getting paid for it. To make things worse, sometimes I have to look through old reports to try and find some clue about what these people are saying, and it seems like all of the other transcriptionists just type what they say as is without making any effort to fix them! I feel like the only reasonably intelligent person in a sea of stupid!
While I was working, there is a woman in a lavender shirt with black hair in a ponytail who is being extremely rude and prejudice. She did nothing but give us attitude for no reason. Fuck that rude woman. She is not a good customer. Workers beware of this woman.
2 years ago I started working at this job starting in one job and worked around to learning every job there. I used to love it. Loved coming and my manager was good and leads were good. This year my manager went down hill. He let everything get to his head and become a prick. His leads cannot even be leads. Everytime the leads try to do something he shoots them down very quickly and aggressively. He plays favoritism with his best friend that he hired and a girl that he lives next to. Both do very little, don’t show up to things, sit on their phones and so on. And when leads try to correct this, give points or punish them, the manager throws it away and tells them to drop it, but if those who work hard and do as they’re told make one small mistake, like putting something away, they get teared apart about it. The manager even left this department for another but refused to let the person he said will run it, run it.Continue reading
Where to even begin?
I used to love my job, I looked forward to waking up and going in to the office every morning. Then I got promoted. Twice.
I have no clue what I’m doing for starters, and upper management doesn’t seem to have any desire to tell me what I should be doing. I feel like my job description is basically, “Do stuff, make things happen.”
That might be fine if I had a single overarching goal to focus on, but I don’t. I’m doing three jobs right now, four on some days. I’m working 60-70 hours a week, usually until 3:00 AM or 4:00 AM each day, and that’s still not enough to get everything done. My boss is breathing down my neck because stuff is getting dropped, and on the one hand I completely understand his frustration. On the other hand though, I’m like, “Really, man? I can only juggle so many balls before one gets dropped. You do realize that I’m only human, right?” Most days I’m fighting as hard as I possibly can not to fall asleep behind the wheel on my way to work.Continue reading
Job: Science lab
My boss recently got offered a job at a better university, and wants to move the whole lab there. But I don’t really want to move. I am not looking forward to feeling the isolation I know I would feel when completely uprooting. People like to say that ‘I’ll make new friends and branch out’, but I’m very uncomfortable with new people, so I don’t really see that happening. The fact that I have any friends is somewhat of a miracle, but that’s besides the point.
It’s not just the lack of friends I would have there. I just moved closer to this job so that I can work more efficiently. And as everyone knows, moving is a pain in the ass. So to have to move again in so short a time, I feel, is somewhat unfair. I know the neighborhoods around where I live and know where to get a cheaper place to live. However, at the new location, everything is so expensive, I almost can’t afford to live, even if I share with roommates.Continue reading
I’m approaching 60 and have NEVER in my working career had to put up with the idiotic BS of my current boss.
I’ve had bad bosses, good bosses and now this total TWAT.
This place is a cross between Sheldon Cooper world/Brittas Empire and Fawlty Towers.
He bought the business I was in, but it would have been better if he never had.
Me – qualified electronics tech, software engineer, field service for global players like 3M for 20 years plus, inventor, entrepreneur, part-time genius.
Current dickhead “manager/owner” – best off in back room production, as far away from people as possible. Good at production, hopeless in the real world.
No people skills, talks down to everyone – staff, customers, family, BUT thinks he isn’t!
Prattles on about high standards and low standards, then LIES to his own wife on the phone (more than once) how the “shop is full and can’t talk now” when the shop is devoid of customers.
High standards there Bud…Continue reading
Job: Tech Support
Things I want to say:
1) Don’t do exactly what I said not to do.
2) A warranty doesn’t cover stupidity.
3) Getting a new machine won’t fix a software problem.
4) No, you are not hacked.
5) Don’t forget the password you just set 5 minutes ago!Continue reading
