My boyfriend went to an open interview/job fair event at the place where we used to work. They denied him because he worked there two years ago and was fired for attendance because he got sick during training. He had the stomach flu! He was throwing up. Since the bathroom is halfway across the building from the training room, and you have to go through the break room where people eat, you really don't want someone throwing up there. People who were fired for misconduct and fraud got to come back after a year. I knew a girl who either quit or got fired, but still got to come back to the same project because her mom is a manager. I was fired for not meeting sales metrics for months and they still told me to reapply for another project in only 2 months. It's been well over 2 years and the attendance from illness was the only issue. The only reason he was in training at the time (and had stricter attendance rules) was because the project he was working for ended and they had to move everyone from that project to something else. He had no control over that and barely any warning it was happening. Good riddance to them. I'm never going back, unless it's the absolute last resort.
I love writing, and force myself to write at least a page perday. But these days, I just sitting in front of my laptop and digging a deep hole inside my head with nothing comes up, like my brain being dried up for no reason. Maybe I don't get much inspiration, maybe I just not in the mood. I don't know. And it's obviously start to driving me crazy!!
Didn't get out of work until 12:30 am last night (8 1/2 hour shift). Back today at 5:45 am today (8 hour shift). Didn't get any sleep last night. Running on adrenaline and energy drinks. Fully planning on taking a nap in my car either during lunch or after work. Also my first time opening being an opener here. Pray for me y'all.
I'm so pissed. We made the announcement at work that the store was closing in an hour, 45 minutes, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 10 minutes, and 5 minutes. I made the final we're closed everyone to the front at this time message, and checked out what I thought were the last two groups in the store. Someone else came up there 10 minutes after close, took their sweet ass time even getting something on the belt, went through every item trying to decide what to keep, then wanted to me do the whole transaction over to get the voided stuff off the receipt. No! I can explain every void, show you what was voided and why, there is no fucking reason to redo the whole cart. I did not want my manager to approve the abort transaction. Just get what's on there or leave it. If it's not necessary in the next day or whenever you can get back and you're over budget, just take stuff off until you're in budget. And next time, when I say we're closing I mean now, not browse around for another 10 minutes. Next time I do the "we are now closed" announcement, I'm adding "I need everyone to the front of the store at this time, no exceptions". I hate to sound rude, but everyone else got done and out of the store on time. Get to the store earlier or shop online. If you're waiting in line before closing time and the line is just long, fine, I don't mind. For the past two months we've stopped being 24/7, I've never seen anyone so blatantly ignore that we are past closing time. Even people who barely speak English understand when we're closing and they hurry to checkout. I sincerely hope that person doesn't do that again. I'd be fine if I never see them within an hour of closing again.
I feel like absolute crap. My nose is runny sometimes then stopped up. Last night, I sneezed so hard I peed. I'm coughing and my throat was sore for two days. My knees are sore. I felt like slow moving crap just going to the store for medicine and food. And now, I'm gassy and have a stomach ache on top of all that. But I still have to go to work.
I am 3 days away from going to do an internship in a country where I know no one and where they don't even speak my native language. I am so nervous and so excited and so afraid. I hope everything works out well.
Back at my last job, I only get to have a maximum of 2 hours sleep.I worked for more than 16 hours everyday with 11 straight days work and less than a day to rest(rest day). This went on for months. I would also skip lunch just to finish all the work for the day and have to do a job equivalent of 5 people's job. One time, I was too sleepy with still lots of work that my heart just beats too fast and had too many short breaths. My hands were cramping as well. No one noticed as they are busy as well. I don't even drink coffee. Thinking of it now, I'm glad I left because I could be dead by now if it continues. Btw, we were all paid just a minimum wage. Don't be afraid to leave a job that kills you. If it makes you unhappy and causes health problem, always think that there are jobs with more opportunities that treats employees better. --- 물 :)
when i started working days at this hotel i didnt know that i was going to be everyones bitch...
I'm 22 years old and I have trust issues. I made a friend at the mine I work at though, he's pushing 50. Today was the third time I forgot my tag on the board when going home (For those who don't know, you put your tag on the board before you go underground so that management knows who's down there. When a blast is set, the underground needs to be clear of all employees because of gas and potential for collapses. When you forget your tag on the board, you bring production to a halt, because you're the only person who can take your tag off. You can get fired for this.) I got a phone call from my friend, who works a later shift than me and was still at the mine. I knew immediately why he was calling. He called me to tell me this the last time I forgot. Having already gotten a warning for the last time, my heart sunk when I answered and asked if all the paperwork was being taken care of. He answered, "Let's put it this way: I noticed before anybody else did, so you don't have to worry." Taking someone else's tag off the board is one of the easiest ways to get yourself fired from a mine. This man risked his career because he knew mine was at risk (and that I had left site...) People suck for the most part, so I'm glad to have somebody like that in my life. Words can't express how grateful I am. What a loyal friend.
