Stupid Bosses

Mid-size corporation in central Texas. I’ll start with the company Christmas party. We were “told” to clock out at 3:30p, forcing us to donate our time and attendance while the ‘boss’ delegated responsibilities in helping with games, food (we each had to bring 2 dishes or desserts) and clean up for 100+ employees. To make sure the worker bees attended, he withheld paychecks until an hour after the party started. The prizes given out were from his OWN pawn shop store (can you say write off?) He did invite a soldier and his family to attend .. oh, and he made sure 2 camera crews were there as well .. to document his ‘giving back’ to the community and his gift-giving generosity.

Difference between this story and some of the others is .. when I clocked out .. I went home. I did not attend the party. My time is MY TIME. I refuse to work for nothing. A selfless act is one thing .. but it should be voluntary .. not mandatory. Let me know what you think of this “boss”.

Stupid Customers

(It was in between Halloween and Christmas and we were changing the promotional aisle and switching stuff out. There was literally nothing in the aisle but folded down cardboard boxes, and signs were up saying “temporary out of order”.)

Customer: “I want to speak to your manager!”

Me: “Okay, is everything alright?”

Customer: “No, I was walking down the aisle with cardboard and I fell. I am blaming you!”

Me: “I didn’t make you walk down the aisle… didn’t you see the sign?”

Customer: “I needed something down that aisle! I am going to have you fired for your rude attitude!”

(I call the manager on the PA system.)

Customer: “You’re going to be in trouble!”

Manager: “What seems to be the problem?”

Customer: “I fell down in the aisle with cardboard boxes. It’s all this kid’s fault.”

Manager: “You shouldn’t have walked down the aisle, then. I suggest you leave before I call the police for harassing one of my employees.”

Customer: *faking she’s in pain* “I don’t believe this! I am going to call the corporate office!”

Manager: “Right after I call the police.” *walks away to “call the police”*

Me: “You got him mad. He is a mean one when he is mad.”

Customer: “Really?”

Me: “Oh yeah!”

Customer: ‘Um… I have to get my cell phone out of the car.” *leaves quickly*

(She never returned.)
