I am livid

Recommended Posts

I am home sick today about half the people I work with insist on coming in & spreading their nasty sickness germs all over the place. Well, I finally got it. And I'm miserable.

 

Anyway, I called my boss this morning at 7 to let him know I would not be coming in. I specifically mentioned to our Supply Chain Manager to call me if I needed to be involved in the 11am annual inventory prep meeting. Yeah, we are supposed to work this weekend to do freaking inventory. It was planned for 8-5 Saturday and Sunday if necessary.

 

I just got a phone call to inform me that they are starting at 5am tomorrow. WHAT? I'm sorry, but there is absolutely no way I can even pretend that I can get up in time to get there that early with the way I am feeling.

 

Here's my favorite part. YOu know why they are doing this? So that they can be done in time to watch the fucking Seahawks game. I was told they took a vote. I am beyond pissed. And beyond sick.

I don't know! I really don't think there is any way I can get there at that time, and you know what, I am sick! I'm not going to make myself sicker because a bunch of a-holes want to watch a freaking football game. My role in the process is that of auditor anyway. So as far as I'm concerned, they can start their counting at 5 and I'll start auditing at 8. I am just so pissed I could scream &/or cry right now.

Yeah well, I didn't really "agree" to anything - I was told I had to be there just like every one els. They get what they get. It was my boss' stupid choice to keep sick people at work, so now he has another sicky who doesn't get up at 4 am on Saturdays.

that stinks! If it were me and I absolutely had to go in, I'd be passive-aggressive and really play up the sickness big time hoping for sympathy even knowing there would probably be none.

 

I hate when people go to work sick and get everyone else sick....we deserve time to rest and re-coup.

Thanks Jessalyn :) Long time no see!

 

Oh yeah, you bet, they are going to get a really bitchy moody sick person all day tomorrow. As far as I'm concerned they can all just bite it.

Yes, let them "bite it".

Hope you are feeling better soon. Maybe you should open a kissing booth tomorrow morning and tell your boss if you don't have $500 in kiss money by 5:15 you are out the door because if no one will kiss you than you MUST be too sick to be there.

I must admit I'm one of those douche bags that show up sick. I don't know if I was programmed to be anal retentive, but I feel horrible when I call in sick. Even when I'm really sick. I just feel so guilty, like I'm a horrible employee.

 

Anyways, sorry you got sick. I'll try to keep you in mind next time I have the urge to drag my butt into work when I have a cold.

 

You can't call in sick tomorrow? What's the repercussions of that?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
