The Bunch I work with.....a bunch of nuts!!!

This is in response to Clita’s post The people I work with:

As most of my friends know, I work in a small hotel as a night auditor. I've been here over seven years.

Here is the cast of characters that I work with:

The Manager/Owner or He Who Really Hates To Be The Boss : The manager is a nice fact, he's too nice a guy. Since he and I are the only two men to work here, we are outnumbered. He hates to put his foot down on anything. His favorite phrase: "You're're absolutely right!!"

The Manager's Wife or She Who Hates To Work, Just Wants To Spend The Profits : She makes out the schedule, regardless of how much time a person's already worked. If someone calls in sick, she freaks...because she knows she'll have to work the front desk. Her plan: Get the previous clerk to stay over a couple of hours; get her relief to come in a couple of hours early. She gets off by only working about two hours total.

The Front Desk Supervisor or YOU VILL FOLLOW MEIN ORDERS, SWEINHUND!!! (Deutschland uber Alles playing in the background): This lady, who I am certain is Kaiser Wilhelm the First's older sister, was behind the desk before the hotel was built. She always acts like someone put a turd under her nose. You can never do anything right as far as she is concerned; she will jump your sh*t in a heartbeat. But let a guest start bitching, she tries to hide under the desk, then comes out after the guest leaves to pitch a bitch at whatever poor unfortunate soul is standing there.

A couple of the clerks round out our cast:

Miss "WTF, I'm here and they can't get rid of me" : She just shows up for work...nothing more. She's always tired, always got a problem at home, always bitching about how much they work her, always complaining about how few hours she has on her check each payday. She knows that we're shorthanded, so she gets by with doing as little work as possible. The problem: she's the only other person that knows how to run the audit, so if she goes...I'm screwed!!!

Miss "To Heck with what I'm supposed to do, I'll make sure all the ink pens are shiny!!!" : This brain-dead individual is so busy doing things not associated with her job, she neglects her own job duties. She's so busy printing out little charts for the front desk, she can't make sure the correct room rates are on the registration cards (imagine a room renting for only $2.50 + tax...get the picture?). The only thing I'm glad about...when she's on the road, I'm either at work or at home.

I will say this: there is one clerk here that is a joy to work with. She is a young woman, working her way through school, while raising a child alone. She doesn't make mistakes (or too many anyway), she will ask questions if she needs to, and she's a pleasure to follow when I come into work.

And wouldn't you know, THEY'RE TRYING TO GET RID OF HER!!!!!!!!!!

Morons...I tell you, I've got MORONS on my team!!!!!

So, what's it like where you work? Is it hard for you to fly with the eagles because you're being grounded by turkeys?

Since I have met most of the people in this blog, I can say you have described them very well.

But you left out one thing: She Who Does Not Like To Work will take everybody's word and jump your ass before she asks, "Did it happen?"

*hugs & love*

My lady, as you well know, that's a common characteristic amongst this bunch

i am such a blessed gal when it comes to my job. Nepitism is good! LMAO Sissy is easy to work for as long as i get my chores done. Keep up with the laundry and know where and what the boys are into, all is well here. As long as i can give 24 hrs notice my time can be freed up to do other things. The catch is the actual pay stinks. So i end up doing piece work and odd jobs to compensate. But, here i will always have a room ready to come home to when or if i need it. Here i know i am apreciated and loved. Here i know my domestic skills are needed and even on my worst day they probably wouldn't fire me. *wicked laugh* *hugs to You and Lady*

Work for me is intense and stimulating. I love all the different personalities and challenges they present. Sounds crazy I know - but I love it!

Wow I think I can afford staying in that hotel for a year with such a cheap rate Anyway, I am a non working full time student so no stories. I don't even want to go back to the time when I used to work at a local cafe. Nonetheless, it sucked donkey balls

Nightguy_1961 replies on 4/22/2006 12:44 am:

Trust was much worse...She Who Hates To Work screwed up the rates matrix in the pc system...we had rooms with rates for $0 per night...and NOBODY was catching it...they kept saying "Oh, we're going to call in the computer tech from the regional office to fix it!!"

I went in...five minutes later..problem corrected....she'd put the wrong amount in one box...screwed the whole system up.

And people wonder why there's silver in my beard and hair?!?!

NG too funny! At least some of these people I blogged about I no longer have to work for...I did forget to mention we called the Bitchbot...she liked to let everyone know she was in charge...getting paid big bucks and I do mean BIG and yet she wants to pass out the calendars, monitor and put together the supply orders, etc...I am like WTF? And my fav thing she did was say her "professionals" shouldn't have voicemail because it was a serive organization and they needed to hear a real I offered up solutions...and she said if they got answering machines and failed to return one call they would lose it!!! I kid you not...I was like these people are adults...I just had to walk out!!! I am sooo glad I don't work with her anymore...

Hmmmmm....if I got rid of the turkeys I work with...I think the guys from Law & Order would be on the case, if you catch what I'm saying.

OMFG NG , this is like Deja Vu this is like Deja Vu.I think i've been to this place sounds way the hell to familiar.Not going to go into too much detail but this Post struck me in a way i had to at least say something. The BossDefinately not a people person.Not afraid of the work, He don't get anywhere near it.He is so stressed by doing nothing that he usually can be found at home in the afternoon taking a nap.Then the dumb SOB comes back and expects everyone to stay late.When he's not napping he can be found at a rival companies office with his head buried up someone's ass trying to get info on how to manage a business.He is so stupid and so totally clueless he can come back from somewhere with a plagiarised idea and i can tell in a micro second where he was.The man, because of his background, is always trying to find a way to screw someone (Rip them Off).He has a degree in Garage Sales and Flea Markets and Pawn Shops.He would trip over a $100.00 bill to pick up a Quarter.I have thusly given him the dubious title of Mr. Flea Market Mentality.
