Today is going to be fucking awful. We’re already shorthanded at work even when everyone is here. Someone’s on vacation this week, so like three people are doing his job. This means that they’re not getting their own work done. One of our guys also takes every Friday off in the summer, AND one of our delivery drivers took off Wednesday/Thursday/today without telling anyone (but he wrote his name on a calendar that we NEVER use for time off and no one ever looks at because it’s out in the back of the warehouse), which is stupid because it was never approved. Now he’s like, “It’s FMLA time!!!” It’s JUNE and he’s already used ALL of his sick time for the year (which he used for BS reasons and had gone through all of his days by MARCH), so then he needed his appendix out and took FMLA time for two weeks for that. THEN his son was born super early, more FMLA time. Okay, whatever. Except now, he’s taking off all of these random days and calling it “FMLA time” and told one of the guys that he’s going to use up ALL 12 weeks because they can’t stop him. wtf! GO BE A STAY AT HOME DAD, THEN, AND STOP WASTING OUR TIME. When one of our drivers is gone, our shipping manager has to drive, which makes us even MORE shorthanded, and then he’s working overtime because he still needs to do his job.
On top of that, one of the guys is leaving at 1 to go to a retirement party. Then, corporate is taking one of our sales guys and making him play manager at another branch…for three months. He gets a pay raise, but only until he comes back, then his pay goes back to what it was before. Instead of, I don’t know, trying to fill that position when the manager gave his two weeks, they’re punishing us because we can’t say no.
