Comments: Day 4

Nice Save there Brother. There's nothing like having a group of surly people trying to do a job on a weekend, that drops productivity more efficiently. Hopefully the "root cause" of what got them behind has already been addressed.

At one time, I informed a facilities guy about a problem with the doors not securing at the proper time in the call center. Four different E-mail's and 6 or seven personal conversation's, over the course of a couple of weeks, and the problem still wasn't corrected. I took it right to the CC Manager (who was a drinking buddy of mine) and he reamed the facilities guy a new asshole. Later, FG came uop to me and asked why I'd ratted him out. I'm not certain that he liked my answer of "because you didn't do your Fuckin' job", but he sure couldn't deny the validity of my point.

Sounds to me like you're doing pretty good as a supervisor. I hope you really enjoy it.

I actually sent off a "polite but concerned" email to a couple of the sups myself today regarding the current "ignore it until it's a crisis, then panic at the last minute and fuck everybody on the staff into putting in a shitload of overtime" method of handling tasks (which, I've noticed, has pretty much been the policy the whole time I've been there).
This morning they announced the third "mandatory overtime day" in less than two weeks. Oh! But for this one you can wear pajamas! Pfffffft.

Your reputation is really going downhill here. People are actually going to start liking you...

Shadoglare... do we really want to see these people in their PJ's??? I'm thinking that would be a huge mistake...ICK!

Contagion... looks like you've found the perfect job for you. *grin* I do hope you get your computer access soon. That's incompetence on the part of the IT staff. *sigh* I am not surprised.

Heh - there are a *few* there that I probably wouldn't mind seeing in their skivvies... but they also put a "no lingerie" rule on PJ days, ruining the whole thing for us guys :P
