Thanks!
Glad to help. I am, however, spitting hell fire this morning. Ass chewings all around, starting with the plant manager. He took it like a champ. The supervisor will get his Monday morning, just before I train him on how to effectively communicate and educate his employees on what is expected of them. This is the one of the good things about my position, I do have the ability to dig in people's ass's when needed.

Having a 5 minute errand turn into what may be a 2-hour wait because of gross incompetence.

I've been living at my current address for 3 years, my past 3 registration cards have shown my new addresses, but lo and behold, it prints my old address. WTF?!? Can't wait to "CalExit" my ass from this Godforsaken state.

Self-checkout. I sit staring at a computer all day for a living. Why would I want to use self-checkout and be deprived of what may possibly be the only face-to-face human interaction that I'll have that day?????

Depends on the location of the self-checkout. There are some places that it's quicker and easier to just use the self-checkout. I always use them at Wal-Mart. 1.) I don't have time for incompetence at the level of the typical Wal-Mart employee. 2.) I don't have the I.Q. points to spare to feel as if I have been made less intelligent from my interaction with the typical Wal-Mart employee and 3.) I'm trying to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible as not to have my time wasted by the typical Wal-Mart customer and employees. 4.) I need to get home quickly to wash the Wal-Mart dirt off me.

I realized yesterday during an outing with the girlfriend and her kids that I really don't like the general public anymore.

Interviewees who don't show up. We have had 1/5 so far this morning. After the first 2 didn't show, HR called and CONFIRMED with the others, and they still didn't show. I could have been on FB and Bimmerpost all day

It's better than going through the entire process and they are all for coming to work, then you take them on a tour and they actually see labor going on. Oh god......they actually work here?!?!

Then by the end of the day we are hearing from them that they don't think it would be their kind of place.

The simple solution is to never shop at Wal-Mart. Haven't set foot in one of their stores in over 10 years, and would rather support other stores. Home Depot and Lowes are very close to also being dead to me.

Entitled millennials are certainly a pet peeve of mine...and actually worthy of their own thread.....

Or they get the job and then don't show up day one. It drives me crazy. Or they seem to think I will tailor the job around their needs?!?!? What happened to work ethic?

This!

I had a "come to jesus" meeting yesterday, with a production supervisor, for asking his people to come in on their day off, to work on a project, and then he took a vacation day to go to the lake....without providing material, tools or instructions on how to complete the task. After I did the whole, "How do feel this went?", "How could we have done better?", "What can we do in the future to be more successful at projects like this?" All he could do was blame it on other people and say "I can only do so much." Unfortunately this is the mentality with everyone here from management down.

This mentality is rampant and work ethic died a few years ago, I'm afraid.

WTF that happens?

Also who doesn't show up for interviews?? I've had people be very late but that is about it, and usually it was due to traffic, accidents, snow, etc.

But then again, I'm not your typical millennial. I remember my dad telling me at 16 when I got my first job that if I was late to the interview he would kick my ass and make me walk home.

It happens. Not often, but it happens. I get that maybe they had another offer that came in after accepting the position and decided to take it but have the decency to call and let us know.

Some of the people that show up for interviews blow my mind. They text during an interview and wonder why we say thank you, interview over. One girl actually tried to video the interview.

I just got this: "I am currently out of the office from 9/23th thru 9/26th and returning on September 30, 2019"

REALLY?


If it weren't for "optics" we should have just hired the 2 temps. . .

One doesn't "return" when they get back in the office on Fridays. "Returning" only takes place on Mondays.

I think your expectations of how returning works doesn't coincide with today's society Wede.

Talk about timing. I just received this email from HR.

Hi,
After receiving two emails from him over the weekend excited about joining (Sat) and an excuse (on Sunday) that he will not make it Monday for orientation but is Tuesday ok? (sure).
.. We have been ghosted.
No show, No call.

You can't write this shit....

In the glorious society I envision for the future, no one will EVER say 23th more than once. "Off with there head!"
