This thread reminds me of that millenial job interview sketch

I am always surprised when I meet people who are not terrified of their employers/bosses

Can't be terrified of the boss when you are the boss.

True, then you become terrified of the workers

The place where I got hired as of yesterday has a proper ass online scheduling website thing

but for 'emergency' call off things I would assume you'd still just text

Yes, agreed. Using text messages (group ones at that) is pretty damn stupid in these situations.

It's important to remember that just because you don't need or value the job, doesn't mean that the people you work with do not. Consider that next time you call out just because you have the feels or whatever. Some other sap (who also has a life) will always have to take your shift.

I hope you texted your old group to rub it in that you got a new job with a fancier scheduling system and probably, like, a 401(k) and team-building trips to the local arcade and ice cream parties every month and stuff

You can lie about whatever you want, literally anything

In no job I've ever had was any hourly employee required to come in on their day off..they usually volunteered to make more money

the person that might be forced to come in, is the salaried store manager

they usually make more than double that of an hourly employee

If you're an employee who is already there, you will almost always be strong-armed into staying later.

Like I have my actual job to do and literally no one cares about this. ‘Why is this so urgent?’ I ask. ‘Because it’s bugging me!’ ok.*

Closing drivers at our store have to sweep and mop the lobby. Every other manager on a shitty night will say to not worry about it. Dis bitch wants everything perfect always. Tonight she went on and on about how there was a straw wrapper under a table and a bit of dirt, noting that I clearly didn’t give a shit. Spot on. I don’t. She said she won’t close the store with a crew member slacking off. Like we’re in the fucking military or some shit. Like any soul in the fucking world cares about the condition of a pizza shop floor.*

12:30 AM she asks me to take out the trash in the lobby. I have to be back in like 10 hours because my GM, in his words, ‘screwed up’ and scheduled me to open after a late weekend close.*

I’m calling off the next time I have a shift with her fuck this shit.*Also I came in this morning and apparently she fucking left a note that I was slacking off. Like yes I fucking was I had to be back in like 10 hours fuck you
do you think there’s any chance this about more than just you calling out this one time?

I’ll have you know I already feel bad for posting that. But I stand behind the sentiment nevertheless

Why are we acting like Ram's a fucking transplant surgeon or something?

It's pizza delivery and the kid's had a pretty rough run over the last little while with issues relating to both mental and physical health. Fuck the timeliness of some anonymous pizza recipient's dinner and fuck, too, the possibility that a colleague might have to transport one that they otherwise might not have because it's not as if the boss is going to cut them in half for sending forth on two simultaneous deliveries.

This thread is Republican as fuck.

Apart from the bit where people characterise his parents' combined net worth as a bad thing, I guess?

Like, does nobody feel at all bad for piling on a guy that has been falling apart at the seams on a few occasions we've all witnessed fairly recent purely so as to get out their weird views on hard work, projecting about how responsible they've always been by comparison?
