It is SOOOOOOOO Tirade Tuesday!

Well I know this is a couple days late but better late than never right?  At work on Friday night we came as close to clean as we have in the past couple of months.  We left behind 3 repacks of H&B to be backstocked at the store and 10 vehicles to be backstocked at the offsite warehouse!


To be honest with you all I’m in a place right now mentally when it comes to work that is basically what I like to call “Why Should I Give a Flip.”  I don’t get out of bed on Friday – Monday to be taken advantage of by my fellow team members because I’m there until 7 in the morning.  This has been happening to me and my fellow 7:00ers for over a year now and I’ve finally gotten to the point where I just don’t give a flip anymore.  I’ve addressed the issue with both of my bosses and one has actually tried to do something about it but the new boss has given me nothing but grief about my frustrations since she got here.  So I’m just going back into “why should I give a flip” mode and pretend like I care.  This is a very sour subject for me as you can probably gather from this post, you’ll probably hear something similar to this later on too.

Tirade Tuesday

Surprise surprise it’s another work tirade!  i got to work on friday night to find out some pretty disturbing information.  Ok not so much disturbing as it was upsetting.  Last Tuesday morning before I was over working in our softlines department and one of our Albanian crew was setting a table of new product that they shouldn’t have been setting…..we’re not allowed to set tables because they are planogramed.  Needless to say, we argued about the fact that she shouldn’t set the table and she took everything off and put in a repack to be backstocked.  Then my boss came along and told me to go to our main stockroom and backstock H&B and she reset that table as soon as I walked away.  5 people who weren’t even in the building when the incident happened because they had punched out and gone home got there butts chewed good for something they didn’t do.

The Albanian’s have always been trouble.  Our bosses tell us that there are no favorites but 99% of our team thinks that’s BS because they can get away with “murder” on the clock and we (as in all the non-Albanians) are constantly getting our butts chewed when we try to get away with “murder.”

I think we’ve gotten good at “losing”

We’ve been biting the big one at work for the past several weeks and I have come to the conclusion that we as a team have gotten really good at “losing”.   We were totally set up for success last night and we still left both sides of our recieving line full of push to floor that we didn’t get too.  Our “newbies” don’t even realize that it’s going to get worse before it gets better.  Can hardly wait to see how the rest of Back to School/College go?!

It’s Tirade Tuesday!

I actually borrowed the idea from another blog (Eight Crazy) but I thought I could apply it here.  Here’s my beef this week.  Last night we broke our clean streak at work AGAIN…..and our boss being young, new to our team much less our store did not seem all that upset about it.  When I tried to explain to her what was frustrating to me about the whole situation she got up on her high horse and flat out told me that if you guys want to go back to the old way of things getting done (our old boss was what we like to refer to as a military nazi….He was not pleasant to work for at all) that can be arranged and that we should be happy when we don’t come clean.  I refuse to be happy about this because it doesn’t make our team look very good and it definately doesn’t make our bosses look good at all.  I’m sick and tired of “the same BS” just a different day.

We’re GREEN!

We came clean at work last night!  It feels really good when we do come clean because I know that as a team we are phenominal but sometimes we don’t all “shine” when we need to.  I hope that we can get another streak going but we are going into back to school/college and we are short staffed so the chances aren’t that great for a streak like our other one but we can still should have no problem with a few days in a row.  We’re just too good not to.

Have a great Sunday everybody!

Beating a dead horse

Things at work right now are NOT going very well at all.  We went from being the best Overnight Stocking team in our district to being the “laughing stock”  of our district a little over a  month ago. Before then we were the champs for almost 2 straight months.  The next best store’s record was 12 days.  The morale is so bad right now that even our “have a positive additude” bosses are trying to figure out how to breathe life into our “dead horse” of a team.  We just can’t seem to get it together to finish the job off completely.  We’re a great team who takes great pride in our work but we’re going through a rough patch right now and nobody from the “higher ups” in our store seems to care.  It seems that their whole goal in life right now is to keep bringing us down.  But what do I know….I’m just a minion.

A slight vacation…..

I’m going to be taking a slight blogging vacation after I post my Craig Morgan pix and story.  I want to touch up some of my photo’s that I’ve been neglecting since as far back as January so I can share them with you guys.  Have a great weekend for  me cause I probably won’t be considering how stressful work is right now.

Almost a murderess

Last night at work wasn’t exactly a good night for me personally.  I got put with three people who decided that they were going to spend the night driving me ape shit.  I don’t know why but they felt the need to only half ass do their jobs the whole time I was over there with them in our market department. It got so bad that shortly before my boss told me I was going to our off site warehouse I actually considering “offing” them all and sticking them in our freezer!  That’s pretty horrible of me I know but they totally would have EARNED it!

Have a great weekend everybody!  I hope I have a better weekend at work than I did last weekend.  My numero uno boss was being a pretty big weiny most of the weekend and it really ticked me off.  Seriously, if he doesn’t want to make good on his end of a bet then he shouldn’t have made the bet in the first place right?  He bet one of my co-workers and I that if we got a certain amount of our wave done before lunch he would buy us lunch.  We both completed the task (I had to do extra work cause they sent someone over to our wave and they did one of my aisles) and when we went to collect he wasn’t gonna make good on it.  I seriously HATE it when my boss counts me out before I have a chance to even make a dent in what I’m doing!
