Gator Posted June 4, 2016 Share Posted June 4, 2016 only a little... but i was doing OK on my time for once (always run into little dumb problems that put me off schedule; i can count on one hand the number of times i've clocked out close to the scheduled end of my shift, and i've been here for a few months now). then the manager tells me to get everybody's cardboard off the floor and bale it. like. that's THEIR job, which they are supposed to do so that i am able to do MY job. but i understand, perhaps better than i would like, that shit happens and you run out of time for certain things. so i did it, and what do you know, it took about an hour out of my time and put me way behind schedule. it was ten minutes til the end of my shift when i was able to finish sweeping the floor, which is only the second-to-last thing i'm supposed to do: the last thing, running the scrubber, takes close to an hour altogether. so between being stressed that it was so late and that i really can't afford to stay an hour late 'cause i have other shit going on at home that i need to do and a schedule to keep outside of work, and being scared that i was gonna get in trouble for not having time to finish everything properly (either do "bare minimum" scrubbing or none, neither of which looks good on me regardless of it not being my fault)... i started getting kinda upset. adding in other stresses and personal issues that i won't air out here, by the time i went to the manager to ask her what i should do, i was sniffling like a little girl. this, of course, prompted the manager and two others to start asking me what was wrong and telling me not to be so upset, etc etc... which only embarrassed me further and thus made it even worse. but i did get permission to do bare minimum scrub. i did manage to reign in my emotional attack before going out to finish my work, and i felt terrible about not doing every single tiny little aisle like i normally do, and i am ashamed of myself and i think i need to go sit in the corner tbh. at least i have a day off, even if only one. i hope everyone forgets about this shit during that time, because i sure as hell don't ever want it being brought up again. plz halp my dignity has been compromised.
