Please excuse me for a moment. I have to get this off of my chest
The place where I work just recently went under same major changes a few years back, where the "Head honco" so to speak stepped down, and a new guy
took his place. This new guy, lets call him Eric (not his real name) basically came in completely cock strong, talking himself up the entire time.
(My favorite part is when he refers to himself as a "Type A personality" and uses that as an excuse when he goes off on one of his often-witnessed
Mind you, "Eric" is about 20 years older than I am, and I've been doing what i'm doing now for just under 8 years.
He's the kind of guy who loves to stir workplace Drama. He loves to be on the receiving end of all of the juicy gossip, then use said gossip to
basically cause commotion in order to put him at the center of positive attention. (Basically, whoever is the "easiest" target, becomes the target,
and he uses the "gossip" to rally the troops behind him)
And I'm just flat out sick of it. The "Target' seems to change, along with his given moods. But since giving him my piece of mind (i'll give it
every time im asked for it) he seems to be muckin with me a little more than usual. (I told him that I thought his persistent involvement in workplace
drama was extremely unprofessional, and was a constant matter of discussion amongst the departmental managers in the company...basically, we don't
like you dude. Shut up.
Today was our big inventory, and we had lots of corporate drones prowling through our stores conducting an audit on our performance. Of course, there
are going to be tiny mistakes here and there when you're dealing with tens of millions of dollars worth of merchandise. If there never were mistakes,
then there'd be no reason for a audit, no?
"Eric" is going through his first audit, and it's becoming abundantly clear to the corporate auditors that "Eric" has no idea what he's doing, as they
keep finding big mistakes, procedural errors, etc. So what does the little dick less bastard do? He tries to sell ME out. He tries to pin this
bull-spit on me! As if I somehow were responsible for his workload.
Im setting here seething and I can't get over how pathetic and cowardly he was today. It's not a worry, there's no possible way I could have done the
things he claims I did, unless I have his security credentials for our inventory system (Which, obviously, I do not)
But oh my God. How the hell did this guy EVER land this job?
