I’m so burned out it isn’t funny. It’s not only physical, but emotional and mental. I am absolutely burned out and I’m sick of not being able to do my damned job.
I was chatting with one of my coworkers today and she told me about an incident that happened last week. When I heard this, I just wanted to scream.
It seems we had a member come in without a mask. Taylor asked if she wanted one of ours. The woman said no. So Taylor offered her a face shield. She said no and kept walking. Mary, who was on the exit door, called for a supervisor and Ian came up. Taylor explained the situation and another member said that the woman in question was heading to Majors. Ian followed her. So she got pissed off and left, Karening loudly how they were going to “hear from her lawyer”!
She called and complained to management. She got Sean. Sean is a nice guy, but also a useless idiot. He called everyone in the office and basically told them that they couldn’t do that, because it “wasn’t fair” to “single anyone out”.
Yes, you are reading that correctly. We can’t “single out” the anti-masker ratlickers, because it’s not fair to them.
What about us? Is it fair that we can’t do our jobs? Is it fair to us that we might be exposed to coronavirus, get infected, possibly bring it home to our families and kill everyone? Is it fair that we might end up in the hospital, on a fucking ventilator because Dipshidiot McFuckface was too busy screaming “But muh rights and free-dumb!”? What the fuck is fair about any of that?!
It makes me feel like we’re expendable. Like if one of us drops dead, we can be switched out with a slightly different warm body, no harm, no foul.
It’s upsetting, to say the least. And I have no idea whether or not lodging a complaint with corporate will do much of anything; this is the same company that threatened to terminate employees if any dared mention that there may have been a Covid case in one of their warehouses.
That’s Walmart level bullshit. I didn’t think Costco would ever stoop to that level. Looks like I was wrong.
Experts are saying that the next six to twelve weeks are going to be bad; we’ll probably see another massive increase. Wisconsin is part of epicenter of the latest hot spot for Covid cases. We’re breaking records in infections in this state. We’ve got a field hospital opening up on our state fairgrounds.
We’re number one. For all the wrong reasons.
