Warning: Ranting and/or random b*tching below, completely unimportant. Reading unnecessary, unless you have time to kill.
Now that disclaimer's been disclaimed, this thread is the Work Rant Thread (as per the title.) It should be used to post general rants about your work, things that bug you about it, or just anything you want to say about your job. I've been needing a place to unload about my job (It's awful. XD), so I figure I'll put it here where others can do the same. Enjoy, and do not hesitate to post your own rants.
Let the ranting begin!
First off, I'm quite sick of my job. I work in the food service industry (not quite McDonalds, but not quite a sit-in restaurant. Give ya a hint, it's ALLEGEDLY "always fresh."), and I am thoroughly sick of it. I have quite an odd situation. I get yelled at by mangers for going TOO FAST. When I get really enraged (whether it be because they give me a job list equivalent of 2-3 seperate people's jobs, other people that aren't even managers are telling me to do their jobs (bakers being too f*cking lazy to bake so they tell me to do it, while at the same time making orders), or just because our place is a general sh*thole, in which we are rarely adequately stocked on materials), I tend to have to speed up to close the gap in what I can do, and what I have to do. It really doesn't bother me, I can handle it because my body starts to pump adrenaline, but they always tell me to slow down... When's the last time you've heard a boss tell a worker to work slower?!
Second, I REALLY hate customers. Not every customer, but the ignorant ones... They get under my skin something fierce. We have a section of our facility closed for renovation (it's like a collection of restaurants), and so the tables there are blocked off. It used to be with chairs, in a line, but then the customers would move them, as if there was no reason there was a solid wall of chais across an area. This both creates a nuisance to the workers (who enjoy being in the blocked-off section on break, so as to avoid the by then thoroughly annoying customers, since we have no break room. I wish to eat my food without being annoyed by customers, for the 30 minutes I have to get away from them.), and creates a new area to have to keep clean (there are always plenty of seats in the other area, even for everyone to sit at their own table, without sharing tables with other customers.). We had then blocked it off with those little stretch-out ropes on poles (for making line queues and the like), yet they still fail to realize that they are NOT supposed to unhook them and enter the section in question. Next, we had gone as far as to place the vending machines in the path to there, leaving only a tiny section that we had no machine to fill roped off with the rope-pole things. I had, remembering the past events, wrapped the attachment areas with duct tape, so as to maybe hint at the fact that they should not be tampered with. : (The poles are also stuck to the floor by "pegs" that go into pre-set holes in the floor.) As I went to go on break, there was one customer TRYING TO REMOVE THE TAPE. This, greatly p*sses me off. Customers just get under my skin, I guess.
Rant over. Please post some of your own work stories/rants.
