Ok, so my first couple weeks turned out fine at work. But now, not only is my boss being a complete...nice doggy...(to everybody), but the managers decided to use me as a punching bag (not literally). They love to blame stuff on me, and mainly, if not only, me.
Today at work, a lady was working 2nd shift, instead of her usualy 3rd shift, for 3 hours instead of full time. Towards the end, we got an order, and the customer changed their mind, so I voided the order, after calling it back as a void. The lady confirmed that she heard it. At the time, my manager, Melissa, was at another section of work, and couldn't have heard us, because she was paying attention to what she was doing. Then I got a second void. I called it back. Later, we found out the lady made 1 of the voids, and I got yelled at for it, and Melissa claimed she was standing right there, watching me, and saw everything, when she really couldn't have known what was going on (given proof to the fact that the 2nd void was made, and she claimed it was the first, and she said I didn't call back the first void, which didn't get made). Then she started giving me the "you have to be careful or you'll lose your job" speech. If that weren't enough, when I call back voids, I am loud enough for people in the back to hear me, literally. But if the workers making the meals forget, or make it anyways, assuming they heard me, sometimes they might not, I get yelled at. If they don't hear it, I get yelled at.. When I am in the back, if I forget, I get yelled at. If I didn't hear it, or they forget to call it back, I still get yelled at.
What do you think? Personally, I am tempted to quit, but this is my last shot at a job in the area, no where else is hiring, its so bad, whenever a job hires, there are practically the sophmores in high school- seniors in college from the area applying...and by in the area, I mean surrounding towns too..even towns 40 minutes away or so.
Well, today I went to work. Thats pretty much my day. However, I was told something interesting. The cash registers at our work won't let us cancel 1 part of an order, once the button has been pushed. Instead, we have to void the order, meaning we cancel the order, and call back that it was cancelled. (I already knew all this). However, the company is going to start yelling at us, or firing us (if it happens to often) that we have voids. It doesn't cost the company anything, so its stupid, because even the managers are making mistakes. Not only that, but today, I had only 4 voids, those being from customers changing their mind, and the managers yelled at me for it today, and when I told them it was from customers changing their mind, which was true, and 1 of the managers was there for 3 of them, that manager told me that I can't keep using that excuse. WTF? I can't help it if a customer changes their mind, I, unlike most of my co-workers, and even managers, follow the rules. Yet I get yelled at. And they want to fire us because a customer changed their mind? why not fire us for living, or for working there in the first place?
So , having the last 2 days of work off, I show up at work today, to work 11-5, and a manager is surprised to see me. They asked if I worked today, I said yeah, and they said they think they skipped over my name. We go to my schedule, and see me listed as 4-10. Finally, after much confusion, a worker mentions the schedule was changed, and the manager that was supposed to call me, forgot. Luckily, it didn't cause any damage. However, the manager felt bad, so I got some free food ;) I drove home, and waited to go back to work. Work was boring. I would say that the best things that happened were some of my friends showing up, to hang out with a co worker, which 1 of the friends is dating. And as I was signing out, a co worker in another department, and my manager and I...had some interesting conversations :D ;)
Well, got my new phone on Thursday...So far, it works great! only problem is the trackpad, because it allows my phone to be navigated when in my pocket,but I can lock it now. I got the Samsung Restore btw. Now I am going to work for 8 hours.
Edit: Got back from work. Today was an average Saturday, got hit with orders at once, and occasional single orders by themselves. The managers never heard the BK Song, so I played it for them Now at home, looking for something to do.
P.S. Looking for ideas for blog entries, mine is boring :rofl: Just posting the parts of life that I feel like sharing. I don't play RS anymore.
Well, yesterday a co-worker called me and asked if I wanted to work her shift (4 hours), instead of my shift (6 hours), hers would start and end earlier, meaning i could make plans with my friends, who i haven't seen in a couple months. Then she called back, and told me that only 3 other people were schedule, and if I was working her shift, i would likely be working 9 hours (1-9). However, when it came to 9:00, I wasn't told to leave, and we started getting busy. So I ended up staying until 11:20 or so, meaning 10 and almost a half hours of work.
Today I got another 7 hours of work, and during my break, when i tried to turn my phone on...found out it didn't work. I was really nervice about my car, because it loves breaking down..and knowing my luck, that would happen while my phone wasn't working. For once I got lucky, and I got home. However, now I have to get a new phone, which I hate, because I really liked my old phone (which decided to have problems when we got texting, which i was really excited about because my phone was keyboard phone, and I was always texting my friends with my ipod, since we didn't have texting.
Also...some people tried to steal from our work...shame they didn't notice the security cameras above their heads. >.< And apparently, an RV exploded in our parking lot the other night. I missed it
Oh, and there was an "illegal immigrant" that came from Mexico, all the way up to Ohio, by himself, he was only 12 or 13 years old...he walked and hitched hike all they way up here :( (No offense intended to anybody, thats just how head of security worded it to us). They said he sat on a bench at work for a couple day, only getting up to go to the bathroom.
Well, I haven't been on in a couple days, and just remembered my blog. I was on vacation since Sunday, but now I am back. I found a website called Phone Scoop, and I have been looking at Sprint phones, with keyboards, preferably with both a key board and number pad, WITHOUT TOUCH SCREEN OR INTERNET, OR SMARTPHONES/ANDROIDS, as my old phone is being weird on me; the screen stops working, or goes blank, or screws up in some other way, sometimes it happens frequently, sometimes occasional, and sometimes not at all, but it is happening frequently, more often. So I am looking for a phone that i will be able to text with from Sprint, without this problem. I found a couple on Phone Scoop, but I don't know if Phone Scoop is a good website or not.
Phones I found:
List of Phones fitting what I want (please ignore the phones that require internet)
Anyways. Vacation was somewhat fun, went out to eat, and enjoyed cabin the first night, hiking the second and 3rd day, and I met up with a friend from my old school who was in the area, the 2nd night. the 4th night, we stayed at a bed and breakfast, which was torture, because of lack of internet, and no tv, effectively nothing to do. 5th night was my favorite, but won't say where we went, as it would give away the location...which I don't want to do :D
So tomorrow should be interesting though. 1st time working in a week, and I will be working on a busy day, starting during a rush hour, then ending during a rush hour...(yay :( *insert sarcasm here*)
Well, yesterday I had work, got my first paycheck my parents decided yesterday that today they are going to an outlets, and I was looking forward to going, but I found out, I have to work tonight :glasses: So much for that idea, should have known that would happen. :/ Have tomorrow and Monday off. Sometime I still have to go get my laptop for college, and my camera, and GPS...might hold off on the GPS, as my family already has 1, and its rare that I go somewhere I don't know. This is short and boring...but I wanted to mention I got my first ever paycheck :)
Update: Just got home from work a while ago. Sad and depressed, but had a good time. My manager sang the spaghetti and meatball song....I didn't even know there was 1....and after an hour of working, it stormed hard, so naturally we got alot of business. While it was storming, 1 of my fellow workers looked outside, and said "What a beautiful day", and another worker, not knowing it was storming out, because 5 minutes before, it was bright and sunny and humid out, said "Yea, really sunny and humid out", with a smile on his face, so we told him to look outside (all he had to do was look up (he was cleaning the floor, so he was looking down) and straight out the window, right infront of us, a couple hundred feet away (huge windows). When he saw it was storming, he was like "Geez, just 5 minutes ago it was bright out)...and his face dropped, the expression on his face was priceless.
Well, today was yet another boring day...literally did nothing all day. Lately I just haven't felt hungry, or interested...in anything. I got a letter in the mail, from college, saying that a really good camera is required for class, or I can't take it, as in a camera that is like, around $400-600. My life doesn't seem to agree with me. Something bad almost always happens. And now my current phone, one that I love, and have gotten used to, is having problems, mainly the screen goes blank, or it flips colors. I haven't dropped it, nor have I got it wet, I have had it for several months now. Its a Samsung Exclaim, and seeing how we just got texting last week, you can probably understand why a simple, great dual keyboard phone, having problems, makes me sad, especially since I don't have the money for a new phone. In anycase, I have been trying to find my topic about Sprint phones, and am unable too, probably just being blonde and not seeing it. But the "View member topic" option in my profile, or any profile, isn't working. I have tried everything I can think of, I think its a glitch. Personally I think Sal should add a a button at the top, by "My Blog", that lets us see our topics, without that flood control crap. I had today and tomorrow off, was looking forward to today all week, only to have plans ruined...again. Nothing planned tomorrow, might try and hang with 1 of my friends.
PS. Sorry if my blog is boring, right now I am really sad and depressed, and just like talking about it. I'm trying to get in the habit of making a post per day, and going from there. I know my life is boring.
Well, I worked 4-10 tonight, and accidently ended up insulting the lady who writes our schedules..and unintentionally. We brought up schedules, and timing, and how there are times when only 1 person works, and I mentioned how there was a lady working with me last night, who mentioned how Sunday morning, she got out at 6, but her replacement was scheduled for 10...in other words, 4 hours of nobody working in back. Now I have Wednesday and Thursday off, and I found out I am going to be working 6 days a week for a while.
This is pretty much it.
Edit: however, yesterday was interesting, the guy in charge threw a tray of hamburgers across work, literally because he was so ticked off :P
well, I just got up not too long ago; or I should say, out of bed...I was pretty restless last night, never even fell asleep...for the second or third night in a row...but I have today off, so hopefully it will be a good day....even if it does seem boring...I work 3-11 again tomorrow :D I'm glad I have 3 days off this week...I like getting hours, but I need time to hang with friends...so far it feels a little hot out...Ice cream sounds nice right about now :D I don't know what I will do today...
My family finally got texting on our plan, for Sprint...unlimited texting :D before I had to use an app on my ipod to text...which didn't have all the features, and needed wifi...So far, I'm loving texting, I'm getting addicted to it. I go to work in about 50 minutes, Going to work for 8 hours....not bad for a part time job :D will probably be exhausted when I get home.
Another day of sitting at home bored..work in 4 hours, for 5 hours should be fun, I hope. Not much to say really... Enjoying my time off RuneScape...Whenever I thought of quitting, I thought it would be hard...I thought I would keep coming back...but so far, I haven't, except when I miss my rs friends, but most of them are on here/yt/skype, so I don't have much of a reason to get on. This might be the only good thing that came of my life being a mess...
