Hi everyone, I have a part time job working all day Wednesday and Friday afternoon and evening. I have had it fo 16 years. One boss in particular is a rude, ignorant bully, but on the whole I like the job. Yesterday I told my boss to f... Ck off, he wanted me to carry an large parcel containing a machine part to the post office. He had a car parked outside! We had an altercation at the door just as I was about to go and do some banking for him. When I came back he had gone but the manageress said he was furious. I said I didn't care, bring it on. So the point of this post is had anyone else said or done things they wouldn't normally have. P S, my partner says he is proud of me and doesn't know how 8 have stuck it for so long
Good for you,I have fallen out with my next door neighbour on more than one occasion because she used to treat me like a servant.She is so overbearing people don't like to refuse to help her.I got so fed up in the end that I was forced to say something.We have never got on badly,but things are easier now she realises I am not a doormat.Jane x
Thankyou Jane, a bit of validation helps even though I know I am in the right xx
Dear Needing friends, why should you risk your own health and safety carrying probably quite a heavy ( I've no doubt) machine part to the post office. Your boss shouldn't make unreasonable requests of you. I say good for you,. It might make your boss take a look at his own behaviour.
Thankyou sunflowers15, it was the culmination of many things he's done. I was at the point when no other words would do. I had said just before that we were getting older, he said he was catching us up. He is in his 40s.it was simply an I am your boss you do as I say moment. I could write a book! Anyway we shall see what the outcome is. Wishing you all good things, pam xx
Needing Friends, Just hoping things went ok
Thankyou, haven't heard from work but am going in today on a 10 till 7 shift. We shall see what happens. Otherwise, he, the boss, is usually there on the Friday afternoon when I start so I can't imagine he will let it go. Will let you know, have got worse things happening than receiving a load of f abuse from him. I will either cry from frustration if he talks over me and I can't get my points across, hope not as he will see that as a victory, or I may just let him have it with both barrels, and sound like a hysterical, foul mouthed old woman. Or it may be a combination of the two. Life is just one party at the moment xxxxx
