You know... I have just had the most horrible start to the week. The place I work for has just screwed my coworkers and I over big time...

Over the Easter break, my aunt (my boss) died... so we had all that to deal with, and then they pull this crap like they did today. They totally passed over the next person in line to be the manager, and are going to bring in someone new... then they tell us that this new person is going to be there to 'watch over us and make sure we do things right'. Yeah, right, we know how to do our work... we've being doing our work just as it should be done for years! But the killer is, that we have to train this new person, so they can make sure we do things right!!

Ironic, huh?

*sigh* Sorry, just had to rant... I feel a bit better now...

That sucks, dude. Luckily for me I haven't experienced the "real world" yet and I've only done small jobs.

Hope everything works out for you.

I went to school today. I hate that fascistoid thing! They tell you when, where, what to do and how to do it. besides, they don't accept an oppinnion besides their own. they hate you for the rest of their pathetic lives if you talked back only once. AND: The abuse their power shamelessly.

I f***ing hate that place! :x

Just teach them how to do their job wrong. If you hate them so much, conspire with the coworkers against them.

Do you hate the students or the teachers most?

I'm sorry to hear that, JD. Hopefully things work out. Voltron's advice does sound solid though. :lol:

Mebbe complain to the manager/boss of him? After all, there should be something wrong with that, especially if he's slowing you down.

Thanks everyone... I feel so much better now than when I first wrote that! (Well, not totally but a little better than before...) I hope it'll get better... hopefully we can get everything worked out soon.

Thanks again, guys. Your good wishes and offers of what I should do really helped. :wink: :)

EDIT - Mars... :lol: I remember it fine, but thanks for the offer. :wink: :lol:

Sorry to hear about that JD!!!

It reminds me a little of when they canned my dad. They didn't do it until he had finished the inventory (he worked day and night on it) and then after it was finished they fired him and brought in a manager from back East. And boy did he screw things up!!!

Also sorry about your aunt. Hopefully everything will work out for you guys. Take care.

Heh. Don't worry, I'm killing them as we speak.

Someone at work had them first, and they contaminated everyone with them. The whole night crew, including me now has them.

Ugh, lice sucks. I've never had it, though.
