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.
