How hard is it for people to say "Thank You" these days?

I put in 10 hours work yesterday. I was running the department while my manager was away. Therefore I had to work 10 hours from 9am to 7pm with 1 hours break for lunch. From 9am to 4pm I had to cover the office doing several managerial jobs. From 4pm on a Sunday I have to put out advertising and do legal price checks for Monday morning's trade. If it's not done, the company is then displaying false advertising, which by-the-by is considered illegal by trading standards.

I usually work 12pm to 9pm on a Sunday which essentially gives me from 4pm to 9pm to do advertising. So last night I was 2 hours short not to mention suffering from a major stress induced migraine. I was sick when I got home. My shift for today was supposed to be 7am to 3pm, however with 2 hours lost last night and the doors opening to customers at 8am I was an hour short to get everything done. So I started an hour early, wandered in through the doors and then I get a load of other work dumped on me. I worked my ass off from 6am to 12:30 without a break. I had 30mins and was told I could leave at 1pm for not taking my lunch hour.

Finally 1pm rolls around and I leave passing the Store manager on my way out. He turns to me and says:

"What time are you in tomorrow mate?"
"I'm not" says I
"Oh God." He calls back "Pain in the ass."
...
RAGE!

Thank you for doing all that work, even if I'm not affected by it.

Just wait it out until you get a different job, then on your last day slap your cock across his face like there's no tommorrow.

And take a shit in someones till.

Oh god, all the ideas!

I would also like to add. I do not get payed managers rates to do the managers job in their absence. I get standard monkey pay (peanuts)

If you're working hard to impress you're peers/bosses, you will never be satisfied. You shouldn't care what your douche manager thinks because in the end he'll just use/abuse you as much as you let him.

He's the manager of the whole store and he treats you like that? usually if someone makes it that high up the chain they are for the most part good people... at least in my experience.

Sounds like you're overqualified for this job btw to be taking orders from a twat like this... = )

Perhaps you threaten him. You work harder than him. That could by why he treats you like crap.

Try actually threatening him. Blow up his house and burn his cat down. That'll teach him who's boss.

You should have just ran after him when he said that and gave him 8 wedgies and 2 blows to the stomache.
