work today was such a piss off (major rant ahead warning…)
1. i got bitched at for eating at my register even though i went almost 5 hours without a break… hm wonder why i was hungry? oh because my manager was MIA for most of the shift so she neglected to give me my breaks - and then after bitching at the fact that i was eating she pulls out a bagel and starts eating it
2. one of the contractors condescendingly asked if i was a new employee because i was having difficulties doing his charge account payment because im pretty much only there on weekends and we don’t usually do those then and i’ve only done one payment in the year i’ve worked at rona
3. instead of getting 2 15min breaks and a 30min lunch i only got my lunch because y’know who needs breaks when you’re standing on your feet all day????
4. the managers decided monday morning was the best time to do interviews even though they knew we were understaffed. and whenever a department is too busy to answer a call it goes to the MOD but they were all interviews so people on the phone were getting hella pissed at us cashiers even though we’re just the ones that transfer the calls
5. some asshole wouldn’t get it through his mind that we’re not allowed to sell display models of items unless theyre the last ones - and then threw a fit when i asked him to wait to see if we could find a boxed model
a) the same asshole also tried to get me to give him the weekend only sale price for a product even though i told him no - which he proceeded to ask me to check with a manager who happened to already tell him no… like if she already said no why would you try asking another employee?!
b) when both of us said no he asked up to go to someone higher up and ask them - if my boss says no, i say no… thats how this shit works
c) again the asshole was bitching about the fact that we have a limit on our bags of dirt that was on sale (its a 2 week sale so we didnt want t run out early) and was complaining about how lowes lets you have as many as you want - THEN GO SHOP THERE. (i told him that cause i was getting pissed)
d) after finally not finding the product and telling him he could have the display model he demands that he gets 10% off - and of course he got it because customers are taught that if they make a big deal about something they will always get the discount
6. because of the prick in the story above i didn’t punch out until about 15 min late which really just contributed to a very pissed of brittany.
because starting work at 6am isn’t bad enough, right?
something that really annoyed me was that after seeing my new hair colour the first thing my dad did was ask if i did it to get a guys attention
imagine… a girl doing something for herself instead of doing it just to please a guy
i guess that is a foreign concept and that really frustrates me
make your tumblr the best space for you
you are not on this site to please others or cater to things that upset you
surround yourself only with the things you want to see
your dash should lift your spirits, make you think and smile
if it doesn’t, don’t feel bad about unfollowing or doing whatever you need to do that is right for you
first and foremost, ensure that tumblr is a safe, fun space for you
ugh i am so tired of being treated like shit at work
it’s one thing for a customer to treat me bad, but for another cashier to do it really pisses me off - especially when 1. shes new and i have a year of superiority over her so it really isn’t her place to try to tell me what to do, and 2. my boss totally witnessed it and backed her up on it
like they were standing beside the CS phone (which is super easy to answer when it rings ‘cause you dont have to press any buttons to answer) and the cashier and my boss we talking about something and the phone rings and the girl looked at me while i was busy with a customer and said ‘we’re having a conversation so you pick up the phone.’ and my boss just laughed and agreed with her
i know thats just one small stupid thing but i’m so tired of people being rude to me just because they don’t like my mom or just because they know they’ll get away with it because anyone with authority at work won’t do shit
ugh, sorry for the rant but i just had to
