Unedited For Your Enjoyment

I used to work produce at a southern grocery chain and I loved
working there for the most part. The store loved hiring less than
able or competent workers then hiring a person to follow that person
around for what i assume as some kind of tax break. Everyone that
worked there was very nice and friendly except for the dreaded boss.

She was always buzzing around the store reorganizng the shelves and
counters because nothing was ever good enough for her. She was always
cutting hours and constantly leaving the store understaffed. She did
this because the less hours the store consumed, the bigger her bonus
became. I don’t blame her for trying to be stingey, but she took it
to an extreme.

Now in my department, i had a little slice of the 1960/70′s-a
vietname vet with flashbacks, a burnt out druggie, a white
supremacist, a hippy, a lesbian, and the boss. All of these people
weren’t the cream of the crop, but had some amazing life stories
about them.

Unfortunatly all of them were constantly getting sick or missing work
for some thing or another leaving me to pick up the extra hours. I’d
work to about midnight most schedualed days, but i was always getting
calls at 5-7am seeing if i could come in. Being a poor college boy in
need of money i was always saying “yes” but always reminding her of
how many hours i’ve already worked. this made the boss quite happy
and quickly became her go-to person.

I was normally schedualed for 15-20 hours a week, the only reason why
i never picked up a second job is because i was picking up enough
hours and end up working about 40-65 hour work weeks so i was making
bank on top of a under the table side job getting 300 bucks a week.
This went on for about two months until she got a call from the union
saying they’re gonna have to make me full time because i worked so
many 40 hour weeks. She went ape on me, because she never knew that i
was workin that much.

From that point on, she was always riding me to work harder than ever
before, nothing was ever good enough, the peaches dimples weren’t
facing the right direction etc. She also always had me shuffling
around the stands and pulling thousand-pound crates of watermelons to
the front of the store.

The last straw came when corporate authorized my department for 100
extra hours a week for work since we were earning so much. This
worked out to be about 20 hours extra a week for everyone, but since
i was the only part-timer it was probably meant to hire another
person or two. What she did instead was slash hours to the bare
minimum for evreyons and if someone called in sick she wouldn’t call
in a replacement, so i was constantly working solo during the busiest
days of the week. As a cost “saving” measure, she also schedualed one
woman during her class time in an effort to get her fired for so many
tardies.

Soon after, most of us gave our two weeks and moved to another store.
We later learned that she was replaced from another out of state
manager.

  3. sounds like she didn’t have the Flying Spaghetti Monster in her life.

  5. If my reading comprehension is correct, this store hired a disproportionate number of mentally handicapped persons. That certainly explains the spelling and grammatical errors contained in this story. Good for you, story teller, for earning your way in this world despite your shortcomings. Jesus smiles upon you and your friends riding upon the diminutive bus.

  13. Sounds like your typical grocery store. I had a store manager (who was salaried) and was pretty anal. On the other hand, whenever the 60 mph hour straight line winds blew during a storm, he was the first in to make sure everything was okay.

  15. Really? Too fat and lazy to update this site daily.

  16. No One on November 19th, 2013
  17. TMB is dying, and I wish the mods would pop in and tell us why. Not enough entries? Three Ring Focus is focusing on other things? Something else? It’d be really kind of them to let us know.

  19. This world wide website is run by lazy hippies.

  21. I believe that too Walt.

  23. The reason this site is dying is that the form for new submissions is broken. Mods may want to fix it.

  26. loki on November 23rd, 2013

  28. suze face on November 23rd, 2013
  29. I do believe I’m done with this site as there are rarely any updates. I bid you good day ladies and gentlemen. It’s been fun.

  31. It’s interesting to me that the mods won’t even drop in and tell us anything. Odd mods here. They edit stories for happy endings. They make sure nobody knows who’s actually whom. And when we DO want some info, they stay quiet.
