seeing Ghostbusters in theaters was everything I dreamed of and more I don’t have words I just
the ticket lady was like “oh Ghostbusters…do you know who’s in this movie?”
ok time to talk about my retail job and the bullshit that’s been going on lol
so for a while now they’ve been making us ask customers for their email addresses. It was annoying at first, but whatever. Then we’re told we have to get a certain percentage of emails. First it was 15%, most recently it was 25%, and now it’s been raised to 30%. I’ve never been able to meet the goals. Admittedly, in the beginning, I wasn’t actually asking everyone. Lately I’ve been actually trying, but I still can’t reach the goal. I don’t know what other people are doing, but customers tell me no constantly. (And my managers don’t seem to believe that I’m trying, which pisses me off.) Again, it was annoying, but whatever.
Recently, however, we’ve been told that our hours are being cut depending on the amount of emails we get. Our hours are being cut as a result of something we have no way of really controlling. Thanks to this I have worked four days the entire month of August. I have worked 16 hours this entire month. I will have been with this company for four years in November, I’ve given them no problems whatsoever and have been nothing but accommodating, and this is how I’m treated.
Yesterday they told me that the email goal is going to be raised to 50% soon. That is completely unrealistic. There is absolutely no way every other person is going to give me their email address. They’ve told me ways to lie and coax customers into giving me their email. They want us to harass customers now. Not to mention the fact that on top of all of this we still have to maintain a quick average speed for check-outs. What the fUCK.
That’s not even the worst of it, no. GET THIS.
I was told that those of us who have maintained a low email capture percentage will be put on a program where we’re given special goals each week for three weeks. If we fail to meet those goals “it could lead to possible termination”. THEY’RE JUST GOING TO FIRE ME BECAUSE CUSTOMERS DON’T WANT TO GIVE ME THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.
So, with the way I’ve been scheduled, if they put me on this “program”, I essentially have three days to get people to give me their emails or I’m fired.
Fired. For something out of my control. Sorry I can’t alter free will, I wasn’t aware that was a job requirement. Assholes.
That is why I’ll be quitting.
there is an unbelievable amount of bullshit going down at my retail job
I don’t have the energy to get into it right now but
they finally let me out of jury duty at 5pm and when I got home my free 3D printed bracelet from google was waiting on me lol it’s beautiful
I keep staring at the judge’s chair in here with the podium and microphone and I wish someone braver than I would just get up and plop into the seat like they belonged there and call order to the ‘court’
I just read like 200 pages of Live From New York without stopping and I think I need to lie down
on the floor
can SNL please do a sketch about the video you have to sit and watch at the beginning of jury duty because that is still the most ridiculous and forced thing I’ve ever seen
"yes I feel so priveledged to be a part of this system it’s truly an honor you can tell how happy I am by how my soul has visibly left my body"
I have jury duty tomorrow
