Are the peons at work so untrustworthy that they can't be at work without a supervisor?
I feel for you, stupidity and childishness really grate on my nerves.
Maybe you should apply for a job teaching sensitivity classes.
OMG! And these people are MANAGERS!?! That is just ridiculous. I hope you are keeping your eyes open for other job opportunities....
We have a saying, "Bitching Sailors are happy Sailors." They sound like happy Sailors to me.
I guess I shouldn't tell them the hours my husband has put in for years at his jobs. If I'm lucky, he gets home at 7pm. (half hour drive). Then there are the 9pm overseas calls several nights a week and a few 7am morning calls for various projects.
No joke. I'm sitting here doing a 60 to 70 hour work week for a measly 35k.
And they're complaining?!
If worst comes to worst you got a lunch out of it.
