I work at a private show dog kennel. I manage the kennel, attend to the dogs and groom. About 2 years ago, the owner hired a guy that use to work at the vet clinic where we take the dogs. I usually do the hiring, but he brought this guy in. I trained him. We have a specific we routine here, just to keep everyone on The same page on each shift.
A week after training him, he started doing things his way. Changing the whole system. When I questioned him about it, he would ignore me or tell me, if you have a problem with it, take it up with the owner. I tried to do things the civil way to work it out on our own, without involving the owner. Two years later, he’s still an asshole.
He has stolen my grooming money, tips, everything is broken because he’s careless, one time he took laundry detergent from a brand new container and replaced it with water so it still seemed full. Totally diluted the liquid detergent. He’s took dog food for his own dog and leaves me with nothing for our dogs. Doesn’t communicate when I ask him simple questions. Brings his different gf’s and his 5 year old daughter to work. I’ve even found girl’s under, bikini and kids socks in the washer and dryer. I told him how can he wash his child’s clothes here when we wash soiled, dirty, pooped beddings there. Gross! He said that I don’t know what I’m talking about and to stay out of his business.
List goes on and on. It’s ridiculously. The owner knows all this but doesn’t do anything about it but “talk” to him. It’s because he doesn’t deal with him personally, so he doesn’t take it as seriously. I just can’t wait until October when I get married and quit! Becaus were moving away!
Whats your horrible boss/co-worker story?
