So you know when you have a bad day, or something is just ticking you off !
Rant or Vent here ! And maybe get feed back ...
Anyways Here's mine from today:
I was called to a job, I am boat waxer... I buff and compound boats
this job was started two days before I was called in. The guy that originally started the job is a sluff, slacker, lazy, pot head, drunk , should have been fired a long time ago !!!
this boat should have been completed in two days max, but surprisingly not more than what I could do in one hour was completed when I showed up after he'd already been there for 2 days...!
He dropped a buffer in the water, and ripped an extension cord in half...
He called the boss and asked for help, then the boss called me, I went hesitantly, thinking 'i don't want to do this' but I went anyways.....
So we show up on site, I start working....the guy says 'oh, i gotta go to the bathroom', so he leaves, comes back, shuffles around the boat for a few minutes, then goes back to his car for supplies, then back to the boat, then back to the car, then finally comes back to the boat and suggests we should take lunch.... I say ok, let me just finish this section, and then we went to lunch.
We come back, to get back to work.... he then jumps in the water and starts swimming (which is usually acceptable for us to swim during work, as long as work is also getting done).... some time goes by, I'm still working, he's just doing this and that, looking busy, then he says we should go home. I thought to myself "Are you kidding me? This boat needs to get done".... keeping in mind, that this is not my boat, i'm merely here to help him on his assignment, I say, okay lets go, and we went home.
We made plans to get there the next day bright and early so we can get the boat done.
So I woke up early in the morning, went to pick him up at his house, cause he lost the keys to his car. When I get there, he tells me he doesn't want to go today and that I should go do half today and he will go tomorrow and do the other half.
So I say whatever, drop him back off at his house, and head out to the boat.
I arrive at the boat at 9am. Work until 2pm, when I go to take a lunch, I've completed a hefty amount of the boat, it's half way done at this point. When I return from lunch, the customer is angry, he has guests on his dock partying while my work tools are still out on the dock as I had planned to come back and keep working. I think to myself "How am I going to get any work done with all of these people here partying"? So I finish the section I am working on, pick up my tools, and decide to go home and come back tomorrow morning when I have room to work.
When I am in my car getting ready to drive away, the customer comes out and starts yelling at me, demanding to know why the boat is not done, and why I haven't been here working on it. I ask him to please quit yelling at me and we can speak about this rationally. The he continues to yell, so I gave him my bosses phone number, got in my car and drove off.
A half hour or so later I get a call from my boss, I explain the situation, he explained how he felt about it and said I will have to go back and finish the boat the next day.
I understand why the customer is angry, but from my point of view, I had to cover work for my slacker co-worker, get yelled at by a customer, and it's hot out and I got a sun burn! And this isn't even my boat, I was just helping out someone else!
I helped the lazy guy at work
I got yelled at by the customer
ruined my day
have to go back and finish lazy guys work tomorrow
Anyone else got anything they need to rant or vent about?
