Fucking Managers...

First of all Jeff and I didnt get to play racquetball last night. They were full when we went in last night and we didnt have time to wait for a room to open up at 7. I had to work last night. But we went bowling instead and only paid 16 dollars for the two of us. Not bad.. Then I had this idea of going to work and having dinner. Well we went alright but it was like 15 minutes before I had to be in. I changed clothes in the bathroom and Jeff got our food after we ordered.


Well I ran into a time crunch and I asked the manager there if I could have five more minutes to finish my dinner and she said no. She said if I didnt punch in she was going to write me up. And she is yelling this over the counter where the customers could hear her. Well with my girls not being home I am really emotional esp at work. Things went from there.I punched in but only stayed till ten when the over night manager came in. I talked to my manager and asked to come. I wasnt feeling well because of my food not settling. I know it sounds like one excuse but five minutes makes difference.

Then my manager brought cookies in and the one that was being a bitch brought the cookies up front and Robin said those arent for your crew. J said I thought N would like one before she goes home. J was trying to suck up and be nice to make up for being such a bitch before Robin got there. Because J had the whole over night crew on her ass for being such a bitch to me. Rick the cook and Robins boyfriend before I left last night gave me the biggest hug and kissed the top of my head like a father would.

I have made some pretty good co workers this job. I have no intentions of quitting and they better quit there shit on the closers end. But I will say one thing. I was whipping burgers down the line last night and they all knew to stay out of my way. I was pissed off.

While we were gone last night I told Jeff Snowie is alone maybe we should leave the tv on for her. So we did. I dont know how she reacted because Jeff never said when I came home last night. But he was suprised but he also understood that I didnt feel well. He said I looked pale but it was ok to take a break. I slept till one today and then have to go back at eight tonight. I just hope I dont have a write up slip waiting for me when I show up tonight. I will sign it only if it has what I know for facts.

On a lighter note we are doing well and I am not worrying about anything. The girls come home Saturday and we are enjoying our time together and alone time. I am half way through the girls rooms putting things away and taking away some toys they dont play with.. Its giving me time that I never thought of having.. Not yet anyway. Talk to you all sometime in the next couple of days. i am going to go finish what I started. Talk soon. N...

Geez - 5 minutes? I'd have said - clock in now but take your 5 and make it up at the end of your shift - big deal. If things were crazy busy it would be different.

If she's that uptight over 5 minutes, she must not have a life of her own and has to focus on you. Don't get mad, just pity her crappy life. Hang in there.

It's just a "power" thing with people like that. They're totally impressed with the control they think they have over people.

Squirl said...

Sounds like she's on a power trip. If you weren't a good employee I could, maybe, see where she was coming from. But she didn't need to be that kind of bitch to you.

Management is beginning to show its true colors, Tweetey. Managers are the enemies of you and your co-workers. They're no more than corporate drones. Always frustrate their attempts to exercise power.

It might also be a good idea to start taking some cheese and buns home at night. You can always use them to make grill-cheese sandwiches for your family. Your family will love you and management will begin to understand that they cannot mess with you.

What Jeannie said, and sending you tons of hugs. What a witch that boss is. VV is right also...anyone who's going to get bitchy over 5 minutes has serious problems. Glad that you stood up for yourself and that others are taking care of you too.

Sweetie, there are some people when given power over anyone will go absolutely crazy with it. Looks like you've got one of those. If it's any consolation, there's usually one in any job, sometimes more than one. You can put someone in charge of someone else on a garbage truck and he can turn into a total bastard, so don't let her get to you! The great thing is the way your co-workers stood up for you, and that says a lot about you! :)

Sounds like you need a different job.
