Off The Clock

A couple of years ago, I worked 2nd shift in a truck stop. I enjoyed
working there, as we had a decent management team and fairly decent
coworkers. Which is why what follows surprised me so much.

Second shift ran until 12:30a. Around 11:30a, my manager came running
down the stairs and informed that the corporate visit had been moved
up to the next day and she needed me to take the product off the
shelves and clean the shelves in between customers and restocking. I
was fine with this.

We were unusually busy that night, so by the time my relief had come
in, I had only done about 20 percent of the shelves. My manager came
down, surveyed my work, and told me I needed to finish before I went.
Again, I was fine with this, as I am with any overtime!

I counted down my register and left the customers to the 3rd shift
worker. About 10 minutes later, my boss comes back down and beckons
me over. She tells me that she forgot to tell me, but I need to clock
out and finish because the store didn’t have any hours leftover. I
told her I refused to work off the clock. She then told me I was
clocking out no matter what, and the only choice was whether or not I
still had a job when I was clocked out.

At this point, I was extremely irritated. I told her I would love to
clock out and I would spend my spare time the next day calling the
labor commission. As soon as I said that, she magically decided that
the store did have enough hours for me to stay clocked in!

I think it’s over at this point, so I finish the shelves and go home
by 2a. When I come in the next day, I am greeted by the GM as soon as
I walk in the door. He tells me not to clock in and to follow him to
his office.

He informs me that I am fired. When I ask him why, he tells me for
unauthorized overtime! When I try explaining to him that is was
authorized by the shift manager, he informs me that threatening her
to get the overtime did not count as authorized.

So at this point, I’m completely done with the whole company and walk
out.

I called the labor commission as soon as I got home to lodge a
complaint against. Unfortunately, I don’t know what came of it.

  1. 1) OP, you’re just a fucking lot lizard. You can earn more money turning tricks in the truckers lot.

    2) Administrator, you are doing a completely crappy job of posting new stories and keeping your regular visitors coming back. You suck cock.

  7. many under the Three Ring Blog network banner appear to be floundering. Or there are shockingly few awkward messages in the world….

  9. Urbanpossum, I was unaware that magicians could make a living in truck stop parking lots. Furthermore, I do not understand why anyone would want to suck on a rooster. What an odd thing to say, you rascal. I am laughing out loud!

  11. Indeed, Walter, there are many lot lizards who are very talented in resurrecting the dead for a second coming. It’s a definite bonus for which many pay extra.

  13. I almost think that the admin wrote this story based on the comments section… We have an OP who stands his or her (didn’t specify) ground when it comes to working off the clock, a threat to call the proper authorities, an upper manager who was also wrong, an actual call to the proper authorities, and a lack of resolution because the OP doesn’t work there to find out. Combine that with it being decently written, the lack of “company shut down/I am making 500x more”, etc.

    Admin, the next one you engineer should feature bodily fluids and death. Those are also popular here.
