I figure workplaces like this….any place that cares more about profit and the almighty dollar in general over personnel health doesn’t deserve to be in business. There should be a decent amount of respect between the workers and management personnel that goes both ways. I’m sorry, but if you push your staff to the point of nervous breakdowns, suicide attempts, and coronary failures, then it’s really not working!!!
There comes a time when you just have to toughen up and say “no, the customer isn’t ALWAYS right, and yes, sometimes management is a load of asshats”! I get so tired of sucking up to some stuck-up schmuck just because they spend some money. They say it’s not good business not to be generous to a customer, but that doesn’t extend to sticking a stick up their ass to prop up their self-important ego.
I’m lucky that I got out of that mess and got into a job that I actually enjoy, the management respects me, and I actually get along with people. I swear if I get into one more suck-ass situation, I’m gonna take up truck driving just to get AWAY from people! Oh wait…..assclowns are on the road too, aren’t they? Sometimes there’s just no getting away from it…….
