i am all sorts of pissed off right now...
*disgrace to humanity* phase.
Dean called out with poison oak.
Understood, tried to get coverage, couldn't get coverage.
It was like, welp. Ya did what you could.
Felt bad for him, Legitament excuse, ya know?
Having 2 bumps on his arm and one on his collar bone was just an excuse coz he obviously just didn't want to work.
Because, well. He was able to walk around the store for an hour when he wasn't scheduled, looking for someone to cover for him...
Doing all sorts of nothing.
Even to the point where Katie (my manager) got angry coz we were talking in the back and she said,
"Well, Dean. If you're not good to work, then... well why don't you just go home?"
"Yeah, well I'm filling out the transfer form"
We ddin't find any coverage.
Katie told him, "well you can wear long sleeves and gloves and be on register"
Just flat out didn't want to work, so it now seems.
Was good to touch carafes, pour himself a coffee, talk on our phone...
But not good to work.
I got over all of that while he was there, as he sanitized the phone afterwards.
We even joked about the possibility of him sanitizing the schedule...
And before he left, "I'd give you a hug and tell you I love you, but ... well I have poison oak."
So, we were screwed
But it was okaayyyyy. I'll deal with it.
someone else called out with no coverage already.
We were screwed....
but it was ... okay.
because one of our partners was sick.
but APPARENTLY --
he was well enough to go over maras house and play video games.
And of course, well. They don't understand how fucking angry I am.
I hate people who cannot empathize.
So yeah... I dealt with having one person on register and one person on bar at the mall on a saturday when WE WERE SLAMMED ALL NIGHT, because DEANISAFUCKNOSE.
And Im in sooo much pain.
Dealt with soo many stupid people at work only to realize that people who work for Starbucks suck even more.
I don't understand how people can screw other people over and think nothing of it.
I don't know if his brain just doesn't function like other peoples. ... but
well, last time I checked I talk to mara...
So wouldnt it be smart to, well, not go to Mara's house?
Because... you know? Chances are she'd mention the visit...
Of course, unknowing of the poison oak factor...
and i'm pretty damned sure that it didn't magically go away at eleven thirty.
I'm holding back a great deal of my anger right now for sake of saying something that I'll regret.
and it seems i'm throwing things out of proportion,
i felt bad for that scumbag.
and he just fucking screwed us over.
go fuck yourself. really, just go fuck yourself.
don't fucking pretend like you care that you're screwing us over,
spare me it, because it REALLY doesn't help out in the end.
when i'm angry at you,
don't say that you love me.
that doesn't help.
you still screwed us over,
i'm still pissed off,
and you're still an asshat.
and when i'm angry,
don't be passive and unfeeling,
because that really fucking gets to me.
acknowledge my anger.
realize that you've done something wrong,
then i'll get level headed and understanding...
because a goddamned hug isn't going to solve anything.
I called Heather and told her.
She wasn't so thrilled, but not as angry as I was...
Because, really. I felt genuine compassion for his situation and was alllll sorts of understanding.
I was in this realm of,
well. this is far less than ideal,
but I'll deal with it.
Because Dean feels he's not able to work with the poison oak.
There were more options, but well...
If he feels it's the right decision, then I can trust that.
But... it's like being punched in the face. When you're caring but the person turns out to be a complete jackass.
And I suppose taking Trust&Love to heart really doesn't help.
and don't really know if i'm going to tell katie about the ordeal.
right now, in my brain, he's behavior is punishable by death ...
but thinking with a level-head, it's not ... such a big deal.
i mean, we survived.
and i have a feeling katie may make a bigger deal out of it than i did,
and my anger stems from feeling personally victimized.
When he becomes a shift in Manayunk, I hope he gets scumbag baristas like this =P
