How my iPod stopped me from being fired.

Well Fucko, the arse clown was in fine form today. He went off for a training session with another department. Ive been on this training session. Its ok, but apart from getting a bit more of an idea about how people use our system out in the real world, its not that interesting nor that important.

Well Fucko goes off to this session at 1, he's back at 2:40ish. But he doesnt actually come back. He goes and sits with the person who did the training and spends the next 2 hours with them learning about a product that has FUCK NOTHING to do with his job.

Did the phones stop during those two hours? NO!

Did the emails stop during those two hours? NO!

Did someone from our admin support have to answer his phone and do a password reset because he was still fucking about with something that was none of his business? YES!

Meanwhile we were actually down one person today before the fuctard took his self appointed study leave, because they called in sick. So with dick knuckle out of the picture during the afternoon we were actually two people down.

Im in the middle of multiple audit requests and trying to get through the emails that poured in while i was at lunch. I go over to my manager at about ten to four and ask him something, then mention i didnt realise cock face was on training all afternoon.

My manager looks arround and asks what training and with who, i point out its with so and so, and it was the real world utilisation training (basically an external trader comes into the ASX to learn how to use the software that will let them trade, we are not allowed to say anything and have to sit in a corner and just watch) and point out he's sitting with them.

My manager then just goes " Oh." Then turns arround and goes back to his own emails.

FARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont get me wrong, my manager is a nice enough guy. But take the hint, go over and ask Fucko the arse clown what he is doing and why isnt he answering the phones and going through the emails. ARGH!!!!!

Im sitting there 20 minutes after i am supposed to have gone home trying to get out an email which should have been reponded to back at 3:30 but because of the fact that we were all picking up the slack for two less people ( thanks to that fucking prick) no one had got arround to answerign the email.

Then as im about to leave i get waved over by the late shift girl, who has a call about an email exchange that went on during the afternoon. The guy on the phone wanted a response. She said show me how to do it. I told her "you need, this, this and to open this application and feed the info in there."

Then she had a go at me for not doing it earlier. FARK!!!!!!!!!

ID HAVE FUCKING DONE IT EARLIER IF I WASNT STUCK DOING SHIT THAT DICK FACE HAD LEFT THE ENTIRE TEAM HOLDING THE BAG FOR!!!!

Instead of turning arround and righteously wailing on the peice of shit with the most solid object i had to hand, i put my earphones in turned on the whitlams, and power stalked to Martin place all the while forcing myself to not turn arround and seek my vengence against he that should be fired.

On the train i decided.

Im going to compile a list of the bullshit that he is doing, then come Novemeber when my manager goes on leave, im going to take the list to whoever is managing us at that point and unloading both barrels on Fucko, the arse clown.

My current manager has proven that he is unwilling to do anything about the situation. So im going to have to wait untill i can find someone who will. I'm also going to have to doubly make sure my shit dont stink till then too.

So this is the one and only time (hopefully) that i will say this publicly.

Thank you Apple. You helped me keep my job today when i could have very easily lost it.

does the rest of your office feel the same way as you do about him?

because if they do, you could always go and ask for a slight pay rise for the whole office but him for having to pick up his slack. you'll never get it, but you will make a point to your manager.

Dont talk to me about working hard Scruffy, you have no clue what i have done for people in the past, nor do you know what my work ethic is. So lets do a deal i wont pull you up on shit i know nothing about, and you dont try and do it to me.

Deal?

Or would you just like to pull out ewangs now and see who has the biggest?

That must be equivalent as working as a mod for the atomic forums for 2 or 3 months.

WHITLAMS? The FUCK? That'd piss me off even MORE!

I had a similar employee (well, 'colleague' to me, using the term loosely), who's fortunately now left, after having significant pressure exterted upon him to do so, since firing wasn't really possible thanks to the fucked-up public employee system that makes employers jump through arseloads of hoops before (still not really) being able to get rid of useless fucknuts. And he got a job with a major bank HAAAAAAAA! doing SO much more than his lazy arse was capable of doing so I'd PISS myself laughing to DEATH to hear that his useless 'sponge-knowledge-and-pass-it-off-as-his-own' arse got fired, but I probably never will, so I guess Imaginationland'll have to do...

You think leaving 20 minutes late is bad?? Geez - As Scruffy1 said, that's nothing! I regularily am still at work 40 minutes after I am meant to finish - after getting there 15 minutes early. No one else to pick up my slack though.

My job - although simple, had me in tears today, wanting to quit. I generally enjoy the job, but the last week has been shit.

Wondering if having just come back from holidays has anything to do with it?? (I know it doesn't, It's just the lack of teachers and relief teachers at the moment.)
