WE'RE NOT CRAPPY

Short post...At work we've had a lot of people not showing up ...Angela is having ex-problems..she's missed 3 days of work..Inky's wife Anessa got bit by the spider, he missed 2 days of work...I have been there every time I'm supposed to, but between them trying to keep me at the register and my hearing loss, I've been a major running gag...of 'what'..?...and them threatening to put a
shock collar on me, so I can't go more than 10 feet from the counter without getting a shock...so Inky's telling Tom that he's probably sorry he has such flakes for employees...Tom says, compared to some of the crappy employees he's had over the years we're pretty good..I laughed and told Inky..well, at least we're not crappy...We can take the truck and drive to crappy, but BY GODDESS...WE AIN'T CRAPPY...So that's our mantra now....we ain't crappy...

You would all have to be paragons of patience to put up with the customers outlined in your last post. Your boss should treasure you for not committing mayhem on them.

Maybe you could outfit the customers with shock collars as they walk in.

i was expecting a critique of the cowboys draft choices.

Shock collar?!?!?


You SO crack me up, Jackiesue! :)

rebecca said...

Oh, the things I would do if I had a shock collar...

I bet those boys could learn some good language from you if they really tried shocking you.

Maybe the company you work for isn't too bad. Most of the places I've worked for (including the current one) have done their best to run off the not-crappy employees and replace them with crappy ones who will not need raises and who will put up with more shit--at least for a time--because they're desperate for money. In one case, for money for meth. This was at the casino, not at the retirement community. But still, kind of scary.
Congratulations on being not crappy!

tina:thom's the one that brought up the shock collar, inky said he knew better to say that..i'd kill him..ahhahaha
jan:now THAT'S an idea..
billy:i know we have 3 but i couldn't tell you anything about them..haven't had a chance to read the sunday paper today...we had thunderstorm and i had to go out and pick up branches, and crap that got blown off my porch...
bigPissy:actually it's a funny idea...like to see the one with balls big enough to put it on me though..

rebecca:i'd put them on all those shop lifters that come in the store..

sage:they already know what i can say..only worked there a week when i told thom 'fuckyou'...so nothing i say would surprise them.

lily:im not sure what the company is like but my boss is terrific...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have a nasty spell of people getting hurt/sick like you're having at the moment, because we're already short-handed as it is. My employer laid off several people a few weeks ago and whenever we have someone out sick, our call volume gets ridiculous. Especially if we have someone on vacation that week. Hell, I should probably shut up about it lest I jinx myself...

unokhan said...

sounds like the folx u werk with are a pretty cool bunch -- that sure makes a difference when you're having to deal with the goons u encounter every day in public service. my colleagues in the reference department are the only reason i'm not in jail for patroncide by now. but i still like to be able to help the ones who really need it, and --depending on the size of yer town-- over the years you get to know a good many of em and get a glad feeling when u seem em walk thru the door.

"we're not crappy...We can take the truck and drive to crappy" --i so can't wait to drop that line into a conversation ...ha

McRaven said...

Let me testify you aint crappy!

Nit Wit said...

Hell I knew you weren't crappy after the first post I read all those years ago.
Shock collar would be more interesting than My idea of one of those things they put on people under house arrest.
So many posts, so little time...

unokhan:i've lived my entire life to say those words...we ain't crappy..

nitwit:ahh, shucks...keep reading..they're not crappy either..ha
