You just haven't found the right place. Smile If you want to work, don't let those two miserable ladies turn you off to other places of employment. There are many businesses out there that would be happy to have you work for them.

No, work. Two ladies I work with delivered me an uncalled for tag team bitchfest tonight. They were having a bad day and as the new person I got cornered to be the whipping boy. What pisses me off is that they not only tag teamed me but they wouldn't let me answer before shooting more questions or accusations at me. I clammed up and wouldn't answer until they shut up.

It was all I could do not to let them have it. When one of them tried to tell me she didn't appreciate my attitude before I even said anything. I spoke up and said what attitude, you haven't given me a chance to speak yet. She said, "They way you looked at us." FTS

I told her when I feel the need to give her attitude she will know it in no uncertain terms. Then I told her that I might be new here but I was not going to take the brunt of their bad day. Arrgggghhh! Evil_monsterEvil_monsterEvil_monsterEvil_monster

That's the kind of stuff that should be reported? WTF company is this that allows such behaviour? Those women are scum.

It's a tax service. I started Monday for part time evenings for the tax season. Pay sux but it something. I was caught off guard and it just took me back, to be treated like that. I am too naive about people's behaviors I guess. I just never expect meaness so I'm always surprised.

I think you handled it OK though. Standing up to them is good. People with a bad personality like that need to be firmly opposed. Also I'd consider reporting it especially if it happens again. Even if it's just a case of making sure that there's a paper trail record of each incident. The company has a responsibility to provide a proper work environment, if there are records then it makes their life as well as yours easier, and grants you some modicum of protection too.

It's just a part time temp job for 2 months. Not sure I want to report it but I'm still considering it. I am still looking for another job. It's not easy at my age to get work and I'm a bit over qualified for what available. People fear I'll leave if something more in my line and pay scale comes along. The average number of applicants for jobs offered here is 100-200. I just keep working at it.

Thx again for the support. Hug

RE: Ranting corner
Yay - I just love getting paid only 47 hours for two weeks because they don't let orientees work overtime - I had 2 classes, so I didn't get to work 2 shifts. Plus, they didn't add in my sick leave for the night I called out. Only 36 of those hours had my night shift differential, and none of them had weekend shift diff.

Most weeks in CV I worked either 36 or 48, sometimes 60. My paycheck today was less than fucking half of what I had been making.

Mom is coming to my rescue.


Oh - and fuck apple for me not being able to use Java to utilize the time clock website from my iPhone. I might have averted this crisis and had I realized I didn't get credited my PTO.

RE: Ranting corner
Dear Ranting Corner,

Today I won't be ranting about anything. Today will be good day.

Thank you,
Moms
