Rubbish day at work rant

Urgh...I've had such a rubbish day! The management have allowed too any people to be off for the last 2 weeks, they can't very well get people to cancel their hols so there's only a skeleton team in at the moment. The work is piling up, the phones are non stop, and THEN 2 people out of 3 in the warehouse got suspended today effective immediately. So there is only one person in the warehouse. He's normally the person I take lunch with so now he's completely overworked too and can't have lunch with me anymore. :(

The management are ALWAYS in meetings about obscure things, JUST when we really need them.

I went to go and make my breakfast this morning (I have it at work as I start so early) and I was told I wasn't allowed to do that any more because it takes too long. It takes literally 2 minutes, it took longer to be told I couldn't do it! I didn't even get to go to the toilet until 12pm as I couldn't leave my desk. :oops:

Then I was hounded by one of our sales people all day to do things for him and when I did it ll for him, he shouted at me and blamed me for getting something wrong even though he was the one who told me to do it! Grr!

And it was raining on the way home and the train was late!

Grrr!! :evil:

Ohh that sounds rubbish HLC! I remember when my old work told me I wasnt allowed breakfast at work anymore, I just thought 'how stupid, it takes no longer than making a cup of tea'.

I hope today is a better day and they get some more staff in soon!! xx

Totally ridiculous, right?

It didn't get any better today. We were just catching up when suddenly a whole load of stock turned up COVERED in medical "waste" (who knows how!) so there was a massive contamination risk.

Worst of it was....someone who was dealing with it....put his hand in the chocolate box! :evil: :evil:

That's another peeve of mine! I dont get it here, no smoking breaks allowed, but at my old work there was no limit to it, so smokers were working 30-40 minutes less a day than the rest of us!

Oh don't even get me started! That winds me up SO much.

Some people used to have smoking breaks where I work, until they started dragging on for about 15 minutes each time (I don't smoke, but it clearly doesn't take that long!) One of my colleagues used to go and make the tea for everyone and go for a smoke while the kettle was boiling. He thought no one knew but it was so obvious, as he used to stink when he came back! Someone blew the whistle on all this eventually (not me, honest!) so no one can do it now.

Good! I mean, I wouldn't be allowed to sneak out to have a bit of cake or a bowl of ice cream and it be accepted, so why should they be allowed to have PAID time to indulge in their disgusting and poisonous habit?! GRR!

There...rant over.

I'm so glad this week is over.
