Rainy Day Woman

Today was one of those days that you wish you never wake up to again. It has been a very stressful several days at the job. In the end things worked out. No one died.

I like that attitude towards work. When I would get upset and worked up, my ex-co-worker would remind me no one died, and no one is going to die.

It was not my customers that got to me today, but the Head Honcho.

My supervisor motioned for me to follow him out into the warehouse, which I did, thinking that I was going to be reprimanded for talking too loud about some other bull shit I had to put up with (people can be so rude on the telephone when they are not looking at you! When you are just some faceless servant to them. Someone to listen to their whims and demands and bitch at you about your company. Some people have a lot of nerve. Sometimes I crack under the assaults and give some back. Most the time I try to insult them so that they only get it after they hang up the phone if they ever get it at all) and I was letting off some steam.

But it wasn't that at all. The Head Honcho over heard my super asking me if I had checked my voice mail and I answered honestly. No, not last night and not this morning.

The HH told my Super that I had not listened to a voice mail he had sent out and I had questioned him about it.

I told my Super that my co-worker, one of the Smart Alecks, had announced that HH had left a voice mail and when I went to listen it was not there. What's a girl to do?? I asked HH about the voice mail! He told me it was an e-mail.

I relayed this to my Super while my face began to turn red. He shook his head and said I had it backwards, it was a voice mail, not an e-mail.

I retrieved the e-mail and dangled it in front of my Super. (because I am a self righteous bitch). "I'll need that", he told me as he took it from me.


Am I being written up ....yet again !!! This shit is getting very old and to think the HH is from the south!!

First I got all of us written up for not turning in my weekly report because (I always have a good excuse) I went to Cleveland for the Saw Doctor concert!!! I asked my Super afterwards to please not write the Smart Alecks up, to just let me bare the brunt of the HH's wrath. He replied that in the past the Smart Alecks had neglected to complete their weeklies on time, so it was justified.

The Smart Alecks did not deserve it.

The second time was over an oil change in the vehicle. Of all stupid things. I have another good excuse for this one.....the procedure up here is different than down there!! So my oil was long over due according to the mileage...and it is well noted in my dossier.

For a long time now I have had the feeling that the HH is uncomfortable around me. Why? Who the hell knows. God knows I am a very talented slacker. Maybe the HH suspects. I don't know.

I don't like being ignored in the hallways and always having to be the first to say "Good morning" or any other type of recognition. He hardly makes eye contact with me.

Maybe he is secretly in love with me.

Yea that's it.

It's been a very long time since I have ranted. Thank you for the opportunity.

Rant away. Goodness knows you deserve it.

Bosses suck. That's why I'm doing what I'm doing for a living these days...

Hey, I just found you through the random blog. I really like your writing style - only had time to read 3 posts (enjoyed "Morning Has Broken") but, I'll be back!

Donna said...

Thanks for reminding me why I am so thankful I no longer have to go to work.

Barb said...

We all need a good rant now and then :)

Paul said...

First of all. a SawDocs concert trumps any other so-called responsility. Secondly, if he is secretly in love with you, I bet he's not alone.

Group write ups?!? That's bullshit and so militaristic. Be careful the smart alecs don't give you a blanket party to get you in check.


Maybe this will make you laugh: I went to sit down at the breakroom table at work with a plate of KFC after telling someone I'd sit where ever I damned well pleased and my pants split up the back.

Here's hoping something equally embarassing happens to your HH! Wardrobe malfunctions puts us all on a level playing field. :-D

Hey Gypsy

I know you often find my work disturbing. That's cool with me. I'd rather have you unsettled by reading the latest chapter at Author!Author!, then be mistreated at work.

Yeah, he probably has a crush on you. Let us know when he punches you in the arm or kicks your shin. That's true adolescent love right there!

I love your excuses and your self-proclamation as a "talented slacker" - tres chic!

After all that ranting, I hope you proceed to have a stress-free, happy weekend! You certainly deserve it. c",)

Man, I absolutely cannot stand bosses! I hate JOBS...that's why I write and sell photos. 9-5's suck, and I CAN'T WAIT to quit my stinkin' job!!!

Bosses think they own you. They always want you to look up to them, and they always want you to go the extra mile and stay on-call. I'm not giving up my weekends for nobody.

Rock on Gypsy ;-)
