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."
