Yesterday I had to call the police on my employer just to get my last check.

I remember receiving a check from a hot dog joint I worked at and after walking thirty minutes to the bank, the bank couldn't cash it because it wasn't signed. Other times, I went to the bank and the funds weren't even there for the bank to cash it. When you work the hours, you should get paid! The hot dog place didn't last long and has been an empty building for years now, little surprise.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

First world problems is all, you got paid so I'm surprised you came on ATS to whine about it.


Says the guy whining about the length of a rant.

That's just some words you typed, seemingly to reassure yourself that you've won some imaginary argument. You're a tad weird/insecure.

I don't think I need to try again, you made a 'first world problem' quip whilst complaining about something infinitely more trivial. I was just pointing out the irony.

You called 911 because you didn't get an instant payoff check?

Good Lord.

Nope, you accused me of whining and you were wrong. Unlucky fella, ridicule and amusement is not whining, so if you wish to label me anything you need to find another descriptive term because whiner only refers to the OP, not me lol.

I repeat, no complaining from me, you invented that and fail miserably, I'm ridiculing, that is different to whining, you can google the two words if you struggle to accept or understand that.

Glad you got your check but the ending of your doesn't make any sense..

Did you not know what you were getting paid when you started the job?

Like I said though glad you got your check ...


Thanks.

I was told I would be paid $10 plus commission the first day on the job.
Nothing was written down, then after a week of training they tell us
that the pay is $8.50 per hour for the training period... and it is now
going to be commission vs hours moving forward.

This is not what they told me on day one.

At this point I should have just walked out. But the guy I work with
told me about the fat commission check I get working in the same
industry when I was in San Fran. He told me "I was making bank.
It was like a thousand buck in my wallet every Friday."

That sounded good to me. It could really be heaven sent.
I mean, I'm in a BIG financial hole and $8.50 is going to
help get me out, but FAT STACKS like that would help.

Also, the ad they run on CraigsList entices people with
the promise of BASE PLUS COMMISSION, but when you
get through the interview you find out differently.

This is dishonest.

Listen...people should see that and walk away.
Why did I stay? Because I trusted the promises
these guy made... and I was desperate to get
some money coming in... and thought I could
over look that one little thing.... stupid me

I should have listened to the voice of wisdom
and not to my own ego-driven greed. I just
wanted to good better for my family.

Now I'm a lot worse off than before.

But that's only if I accept that you're ridiculing based on what you say, seems like whining to me though. If you really want to be anal about semantics then why are you accusing the OPs RANT of being WHINING when it is a RANT?

Surely if OP's RANT can be described as WHINING then your pointless, inane RIDICULING can be described as WHINING?

sorry but this is super lame.
not uncommon at all for people to have to wait for their last check to be mailed.

bitching about the 8 bucks an hour.
why did you agree to take the job if you did not agree with the pay?

also, calling 911 and telling the operator it IS an emergency cause you could not get your $80check is major overkill.

just my opinion. nice rant and all but i dont get it.

you got pissed and called the cops cause you could not get your last crappy check even though having it mailed is not totally out of the norm.

i am more interested in the way your wife dogged you out and dogged out your job.
if you want to talk about that i will be back

Oh call me whatever, just adds more amusement.
The OP's rant was lame, he got his money, and I am sat here chuckling that he used so many words to describe such a short story.
You can want me to be whining as much as you like but I'm finding total amusement here with a smile on my face so carry on bleating that I'm not gushing with love for the OP, lol.

...and either way, this is the rant forum and I can respond however I like within T's&C's so please do carry on bleating that I'm not singing kum-by-ya and massaging the OP's feelings. I'm here for the amusement, not to make friends or get stars.

You sure like to read a lot that isn't there.

You gave an opinion, I gave an opinion. You don't need to go all super-victim on me and act like I'm threatening you with T&C and telling you how to act.

thats true.
should read between the lines
should give props to his willingness to work any job
his tenacity for standing his ground to get his last check
his standing up to the poop heads by calling the law

what could possibly go wrong when applying for a kick ass fat stack base pay plus commish marketing job found on craigslist?

You used 911 and sucked up emergency services for this? In Canada, you would be in the tank. You're exactlythekind of American you're ranting about.

Thanks. Back @ya.

Yes, the wife. She is not to be messed with.
Serously, the main reason I called the cops
was so she wouldn't go up there and do her
BAT-#-CRAZY thing she does. Not that I
want to protect those A-HOLES...
NO, NO, NO, that is NOT it....

I just don't want my wife in jail.

So I had to man up.

My wife makes me more of man, I like that.
