Due to all the sensitivity to the subject of whining, I feel a need to post a warning here....I am about to whine. I have no idea how to go about posting a non-positive event or day without being labeled a "WHINER". Shit. But my day yesterday sucked ass, and I am about to tell you about it. It is apparently no longer politically correct to do so...so if you would rather NOT know about it, move the hell along. NO ONE ever said I was politically correct.
I walked into hell yesterday, hell would be my place of employment----BTW, and all things were fucked up, as usual. I have been the very best boss that i know how to be, and if the truth were known, I have been too damned good to the masses. Each of those involved in this incident have been warned, and it came as no surprise to anyone that i had fired TWO, yes two, that would be 2, employees by ten am. I COULD NOT take anymore, I was going to have a stroke, due to the sheer incompetence and lack of caring about one's job, and while now I will have that stroke because ALL things are not getting done, at least there will be a reason: no one is there to do it. Other than me. So, guess what I am learning to do beginning this evening? Yes, that is right, I am now the parts man, also. I have had to be in the past, but things have changed over time, and I have alot to learn. ALOT. How will I accomplish this new feat along with all the other things that are my responsibility? Beats the hell out of me, lieutenant. But you can bet your sweet ass I will, because I have NEVER met a challenge I couldn't handle. I will not be able to hire anyone as long as we are for sale, people perceive that as being an unstable place of employment, and rightly so, although I will continue to try. I have been looking for a replacement for these two for a while now....and I can already tell you it just aint happenin' for the time being. We are only "FOR SALE", not sold. I cannot hire someone without that person knowing that, it just isn't the way I do things. Ahhhh...where's the Tylenol?
In any event, that was the morning that i had yesterday. Then I got to go to the Whippy Dip, and had to cook and sling ice cream for the masses until I thought my legs would fall off, and that was only five o'clock! Am I getting old? Ummmm, yes.
Then I came home and stewed...and fell asleep. I am still tired this morning, and i have much to accomplish today. MUCH. One little thing, though...it's funny how the others that work there got REALLY busy and job attentive when people began packing up their belongings....
Okay, so I am off...to my glorious day. I hope yours doesn't suck. Out.
