False Alarm

Making it worse? When the alarm didn’t go off. Seriously.

Apparently, leaving the drop-down menu on Prime’s tablet active turned off the alarm for this morning; neither one of us woke up until 8:45. However, this pretty much cements the fact that leaving my phone off or disabling the alarm isn’t a good idea. I’m just going to have to keep it on as a backup.

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. Finally. We can put this year behind us. I can only hope that next year will be better.

As for work, it hasn’t gotten a damn bit better: last Friday, I couldn’t find the proper Safety Walk sheets. I’m not sure if we haven’t had any of them printed up or what, but I had to improvise during the Temperature Walks and scribble the numbers in a different location.

I walked into a nightmare on Friday. That is no lie.

The Walk sheets? They weren’t on the clipboard. The count sheet? Nothing was totaled. The motorized carts? Not plugged in overnight. The walkies? Not turned in and the batteries were close to dying. So, it fell to me to clean up all of this shit and try to cope.

Of course, it didn’t help that I had at least one manager demanding that I find the proper Safety Walk sheets. It didn’t matter that I had torn the drawer in the office apart looking. I was supposed to find something that wasn’t there. Don’t ask me how.

I wanted to rip my hair out in clumps. No, it wouldn’t have done much, but I might have felt a little better.

As to whether or not this will get any better, I can’t say. We’re still down two people. We have one who was shifted to Bakery for the last week. And these dipshits want to move me to the Front End.

Yeah, great job. Just great. Let’s see how this goes. Newsflash: it ain’t gonna go all that well. But I knew that.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.

    It’s things like that when people responsible for their tasks that don’t do them that cause such aggravation and convince corporate that employees are…expendable and better replaced by automatons like at Walmart…
