....day job complaint (multi part)
Supervisor/co-manger at work left just after noon today (without letting me know ahead of time) that she was going on vacation until the fifth of December.
Have a major international shipment that needs to leave next Wednesday (this customer usually has us ship at moth’s end).
This person will be gone through the end of the month when we have to get all orders out and I need to close the account billing.
This person will be gone when I also have to close all the Digital Print accounts for the month.
I am still not 100% due to a virus that keeps hanging on.
When I put in my request for a week off in December (haven’t has any significant time off since last April and I was sick most of the time) I was given ‘tude. (guess it doesn’t matter I’ve dragged myself in sick the last couple weeks when I should have been home in bed). Request will not be looked at until this person gets back.
Every year I usually take off a week for the holidays, but this year a couple people (with less years than I have) jumped ahead of me so no holiday week for me. When I mentioned this, I just received more ‘tude.
It’s like they only care about me when I give to the company but when I ask for one little thing for myself, it’s like I am not committed to the company (admittedly it is getting to the point with the way I am being treated, it is becoming increasingly hard to support a company that no longer seems to care about those who put themselves out to keep things working).
Guess seventeen years of faithful service means squat.
This person has less.
I really hate the service industry.
