Well, I haven't bemoaned my unemployment here. I saved all of that for my motorcycle forums. :red_bandana:
Yes, ADISC I'm seeing other forums.
I'm sorry but you just do not meet all of my needs and I have to step out on you. :twisted:
OK, to the serious post. I've been more comfortable talking to the guys on my motorcycle forums until now. I feel that I have connected with a few of you and need to express myself before I get an ulcer.
I generally do not wear diapers during the day unless I'm ready for bed in the evening, or just haven't gotten dressed in the morning. Today I came home from taking my son to school and put a diaper on as stress relief in hopes of quelling the violent churn within my stomach.
I was unemployed for nearly six months. I worked sporadically, but don't consider temp work a few days a week as I rack up debt to be gainfully employed.
I was happy as I could be to get this job. I direct traffic at an airport. This means that one of my core functions is to keep people from stopping in front of the airport for any reason other than loading passengers and bags.
I do my job, and do it thoroughly. So when this guy lets his family out and sits in his car I tell him to move several times. He doesn't listen. I start to write him a ticket. As I am finishing the ticket he identifies himself as a police officer. I tell him that he is not allowed to park unless he is on official business and hand him the ticket. He demands my name and still will not move. I have to call airport operations and report that a vehicle will not move. He threatens my job and leaves.
After this, I call my supervisor and explain what happened. She tells me that all is well and that I did my job as instructed.
Today I get a call from my boss informing me that the police officer called my corporate headquarters to complain. Better yet, since I've had this job for less than a month and am still within my ninety day probationary period, I could loose my job due to political pressure from corporate.
Am I in a severe minority in thinking that when you follow the rules and have your manager support you the company should let their people do their jobs without attempting to manage situations they know nothing about?
