Drunk with power?

Drunk with power?


I started my day, yesterday, with an employee crying her eyes out in my office, accusing me.... "You threw my lunch out. I come in on my day off, I work my heart out for this company, and you threw my lunch out."

I was late for and didn't show up to the 9 o'clock meeting.

"I'm really sorry this happened to you, but I'm not the one responsible for cleaning out the fridge....."

"I worked my whole shift yesterday and didn't even get a lunch, I left it in here for today because I knew I was coming in today."

Her voice was trembling and she was hurting. I felt so much sympathy for her.

"Did you have your lunch dated? Like I said, I didn't have anything to do with cleaning out the fridge..." It was Boss #2 and her two side kicks.

"I just don't know how you could do this to me."

Oh my Fucking God! IS SHE NOT LISTENING TO ME!!

I KNOW that the Tyrannical Triad did not purposely throw out her lunch just as I know that she was only venting her frustrations at the first 'Person with Power' that she came to...

But, goddamn, this was NOT how I wanted to start my fucking Monday.

The worst part of the whole situation was the fact that the Triad had cleaned out the fridges and left the mess for her to clean out.

So, not only is she upset that her lunch has been lost, but she's going to be spending the next hour wiping down and cleaning up the fridge that had housed it.

I was headed up front to get a gift card to cover her Pyrex container and the cost of her lunch when I crossed paths with Boss #2 and Sidekick #2.

"[Upset Employee] has been in my office crying and yelling at me because we threw out her lunch. I..."

"Well, she should have date dotted her lunch."

Cold hostility from Boss #2.

"She's telling me she did and now she doesn't have a lunch. On top of that [Sidekick #3] tasked her to wipe down and clean out the rest of the mess."

"Jesus Chris..."

Sidekick #2 shrugged her shoulders and the two kept walking.

I was at a loss and this set the tone for the rest of my day. Its moments like these that reveal a person's true character...

    Quoting  :

The employees where I work are absolute fucking pigs. We have 2 fridges, both are always nasty gross... To the point I don't use them. Leadership staff is just as bad. We have a lactation/conference room that was always used for work purposes until Boss #2 decided it would be a leadership breakroom. I went into it the other day to grab the webcam off the computer as someone absconded with the one I use in team center and that room reeked of old, putrid food. It was all out disgusting. Perhaps they need to purge their own disgusto mess.

    That's just so unfair. You got the cold comfort treatment from everyone....including the fridge!
She did apologize to me today, but I steered the conversation away from the subject entirely. I definitely didn't want to go back and revisit that shit show.

    Now, I remember that Boss #1 retired, so is Boss #2 the current Boss #1? or is this a new #2?
Boss #2 trained with Boss #1 for an entire year to be able to take over for him when he retired. Corporate structure is set up for 1 boss, so technically she is now Boss #1, but in my mind and on my blog, she will always be known as Boss #2.

    We had a cartoon taped to our fridge at work that had some such thing declaring, "Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch?" People were always stealing other peoples lunches. Ya, some of us got together. We knew how to put a stop to that. LOL No, that's not a paté sandwich, Kirk! Bahahaha!
I'm actually really very fortunate... For as many people as I work with, they all tend to be very honest and respectful of each other. Nobody ever complains of a stolen lunch and a lot of us leave our lunchboxes out on the tables. The issues happen when someone cleans out the fridge.

    Sad, isn’t it? There are some people who just don’t know/don’t care about anyone else. Well, anyone outside their “tribe”, that is. Especially around this time of year, when some people just have a lot going on, to put in the tiniest-bit more effort or consideration is a giant ask. It comes back to a question I often heard in my head - “when do we start expecting more of people, instead of tolerating less?” Unfortunately, I know the answer is “ain’t-never gonna happen.”

    Of course, anybody who is overseeing these type of people somehow never or rarely manages to grasp just how they go about their tasks. We don’t really live in a meritocracy, though we believe we do.

    Hopefully your day is going better, today.
Today was a much better day...

Boss #2's boss was in today. But, the thing is, when you only see your boss once or twice a month, the only thing he really has to go on is sales and numbers. Making sales and hitting your goals?? You're golden, regardless of how you conduct your day to day business.

I do like Big Boss, though. He always takes the time to stop by my office and ask how I'm doing.

    At a Work Site, I was on, it was not unusual for one employee too catch another eating the lunch that they had brought in ! If ; confronted, the likely excuse was, " OH ! Sorry ! I thought I grabbed mine !! Chances were that they had not brought a lunch too begin with
How do you accidentally eat someone elses lunch?? That would totally piss me off. I'm surprised nobody kicked their ass.

Today was a much better day. I wore a crazy Christmas sweater with a flamingo in sunglasses on it... And the employee apologized to me for what happened yesterday.

    Hmmm... empathy and sympathy, it's nice to have those two around when you need them.
    Those bosses don't seem to know them.
They do not, which is unfortunate. Part of our retention issue is because of shit like this.
