My last boss was a real peach. It was a cleaning job (all I could get because of the pain I'm in) and I was working with three other people in a paper
factory. Well, one guy gets another job so was only on half days. I ended up doing his job, which was the factory part. Nasty. Before then, I'd been
doing the office part. Well, that leaves the other two up in the office. They dicked off all the time and when they were done, would go outside and
sit to wait on me to finish. Mind you, I had a whole lot more work than they did. They complained to the boss that it took forever for me to finish.
He came down on me hard. Him and his little henchman. I told them both that it was hard enough for me to move in the first place, let alone move fast,
and that I had far more to do than the others. My hours got cut and I got put on other buildings.
One was a factory. It was a nasty ass place when we first started cleaning it. A group of us were supposed to get the whole place completely clean and
then I'd be there alone. He pulled the others out before it was done. I was stuck there with a nasty place, getting complaints like crazy because it
was like shoveling snow in a blizzard. Oh, and they kept running out of stuff and I told him they needed a day porter to come out during the day and
stock as well (something the managers at the place suggested as well). He wouldn't hear of it. I ended up getting moved out of there.
Another place I had to clean was a trucking terminal for GM. Drivers were there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I was only there a couple hours, a few
days a week. Do the math here. How clean do you think it was? Well a hole comes in picking at stuff and I wanted so bad to kick his ass. Hell, the
workers there told me I was in a losing battle trying to keep it clean. They had sense. Oh, and I told him over and over I needed product (soap,
toilet paper, paper towels, stuff like that) and he kept saying, "They can get it themselves if they need it bad enough". The contract said we were
supposed to supply it. We ended up losing the place. Guess who got blamed. Oh, same place, one of the upper managers asked me to have the boss call
her. She hadn't received a bill. I don't see how he kept in business.
The guy was also out of touch with reality. I was so sick I could barely breath. He tells me to quit moping around. Stupid. Oh, and he loved to
lecture me about saving $20 from every check. I got paid every two weeks. I didn't get paid for gas and drive all over from building to building. With
gas prices the way they were, I was lucky to have $5 on pay day. I already couldn't afford food after bills were paid. I was suffering from
malnutrition and didn't want to go on food stamps because of being too poor to afford food. Yeah, save $20 a check. Crazy.
I ended up quitting a few years ago. I saw a time coming when I'd be fired because I could hardly move and it was taking too much out of me. I'd
already popped my shoulder out of socket once. I knew it would happen again.
ETA: You know you're messed up when you can't even do a cleaning job.
