Remember how in my last journal I mentioned that I had mixed feelings about the upcoming week with the assistant manager going way, well that Wednesday (July 15th) all my mixed feelings went out the window, it was a goddamn disaster!
My manager came into work and started barking order while we were all wrapped up doing other things. So we all began doing what she told us to do but then we got a rush so we stopped and began serving customers. During this rush my manager barks to me, “The tables are filthy.” Honestly, we have a line up of 10 people, what the fuck was I suppose to do about it? She was the one doing nothing!
And if that doesn’t seem like her being psycho, this will. After the rush, I mopped the floor as I was told to do by her. A customer came in and the assistant manager served them. When the assistant manager went back to refill Parmesan cheese, she slipped and fell. This is the best part, the manager blamed me! Her exact words were, “She won’t have fell if she wasn’t rushing back to fill the parmesan cheese you should have fill!” And she did this in front of customers. I am only one fucking person and she expects me to be five!
The assistant manager told me directly that it wasn’t my fault, it was an accident and accidents happen. Even the other girl that was one with us (I hate her by the way) told me the manager was way out of line.
That day I did my dishes and left. The tomatoes I started cutting when she began barking orders were still sitting on the counter because I wasn’t going to stay one more minute if she was going to be such a bitch!
And after all of this happened on Wednesday, she had the gull to text me Sunday and asked me to work Monday and Tuesday because the-girl-I-hate was off sick with a doctor’s note. I was so close to telling her to go fuck herself but I told her I could work Monday and made an elaborate excuse for Tuesday (which was needed because I had no way to get to work that day and I didn’t want a ride from her equally unstable, apparently abusive husband). So needless to say I only had Sunday and Tuesday off...I had not having two days in a row off.
Yeah, so the last few days have sucked because my manager is crazy! This is what I deal with one a weekly/monthly basis. This is just a snapshot of a week.
On a lighter note, my Totoro and Jiji arrived and I was so happy. I’m positive my squeal cracked a few windows. The Totoro was so much bigger than I expected and uber cuddly. And Jiji is a little smaller but he is so cute and his fur is the softest thing ever! I was over the moon!
