Work Daze

Today was Peg’s last day. She’s officially retired. So we’ve lost another person in Member Service. We might have lost another; Jed is apparently “no longer in the department” according to one of the supervisors. It seems he might have needed surgery, but he also said his partner had Covid–for the third time–and he missed around a week of work. He also called in for a cousin’s funeral, which supposedly was held in Utah. He’s a nice guy, but he’s absent more often than not.

On top of that, Mary and Wiesia don’t like him. They’ve been giving him absolute hell. So if he’s out of the department, it might be for the best. It certainly means less stress for him, anyway.

Managed to find out what happened to the manager who I called “Shrimp Dick”. It seems that he quit. I’m not sure why, but it strikes me as more than a little bit odd. He was originally a manager, then he stepped down to become a full time forklift driver. Then he just quit. It all happened after Prime sent that email to corporate, so I think that has everything to do with it. It certainly feels like it.

So my schedule for next week is more than a little screwed up, my days off are split, and I get a Sunday off but I’m getting forty hours. I’ll also get three days off in a row. So that’s not terrible. I just have to get through the rest of this week.

Wish me luck.

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.
