I'm sick and not coming to work ever

    So for the last couple of weeks at my place of work we have had a rash of people calling in sick. My position at this company is somewhat predicated on the fact that when people call in sick I pick up more hours. I have a schedule every week but it tends to fluctuate and because of this I get an extra $100 a week. The problem I have is when I am forced to stay an extra four or five hours because someone didn't show up.

    After talking to one of the supervisors, he told me that the issue is that the background check at this place is so stringent that we hire people who are straight out of high school because they have nothing on their background that could be detrimental. In his words, "These kids have absolutely no work ethic and no idea that when they are scheduled for a shift they are supposed to be here."

    Not looking for any sympathy, just needed to vent about work. Thanks for listening, if you did ;)

  6. What, no bioresearchsecurity.com?

    I'm just kidding. You're more than welcome to post here. I was just assuming you worked at a newspaper and thought for a second, 'boy JRC is really hitting the skids ...'

    Christ, I am glad I have your permission. I should have told you that the paper that I used to work at decided they no longer needed me.
