So it seems that I cannot even do the right thing right at work. My work situation is getting to the point of bitter hatred. I got bitched at today for trying to do what I believed to be the right thing in a situation that I was not prepared for or a situation that my superior didn’t show me how to handle.
At the end of the day, I am to even out the drawer and get to either make an overage or a shortage report. The thing is that if we are more than $5 over or under I am supposed to contact my manager. At the end of the day, I was $20 over what we were supposed to have. I called my boss twice and texted him yet no response. So, doing what I believed to be the best course of action, I pulled the twenty out, put it in a safe spot in the facility, and waited till the next day that he and I worked together.
When I came into work, he told me that the previous person was $20 as well and wanted to know where the money was in a rude and demeaning tone. I went to retrieve the money and told him what happen and why I did what I did. He seemed to be even more pissed when I finished.
To my superior, maybe you should answer your phone when your workers call you. Just because you’re not on the clock doesn’t mean you don’t need to pay attention to your store, Mr. Manager. I hate working somewhere were you constantly feel as if your job is on the line.
My wife tells me, and has been telling me to get another job because rock climbing isn’t a real job. It’s a hobby. I guess she is right. At least with a corporate job there are set rules and guidelines to follow instead of a free for all when shit hits the fan.
