- So if neither of those have context, where's the one that has …
Did I accidentally say that?
My bad. Story 2 had the context. Thanks for pointing it out >.<
But yeah I follow where you're going. Context can entirely change what impact a story can have.
Though I gotta admit, there's no better feeling than letting your manager know that you don't need them and just walking off the job.
Worked a warehouse gig where the air was full of dust and exhaust fumes because they had the delivery trucks running inside the building and the ventilation system. Breaking all sorts of labor laws and WCB policies, but whatever.
Long story short, I would need to take breaks just to step outside and breath some oxygen for a few minutes because I'd find it hard to breath sometimes.
literally everyone else on the job was an avid smoker, so none of them were really bothered by this
One time I asked to take one of these breaks and my boss told me that if he let me off the line he'd just have to let me go. So I told him "That's fine, in that case I quit" and shook the hand of the supervisor and wished him well. Walked out of that warehouse and never looked back.
My favorite part of the whole thing was that before I even got to my car in the parking lot I got a call from a friend of mine offering me a security gig. Didn't pay as well right away, but I wasn't suffocating for several hours a day.
That definitely sounds like a job you need out of. Breaking all sorts of labor laws and policies and a broken required ventilation system isn't something a company just doesn't know about.
My only worry is that sometimes, you do need to get out of a job, and you need out NOW, but you're still shafting people in the middle of a shift. Hope everything turned out alright.
Yeah the manager there was informed of all these issues plenty of times. He just didn't seem to think it needed addressing.
And yeah unfortunately walking out doesn't just fuck over the boss, it screws over whoever had to cover your position.
We actually had a couple people quit my current job recently and we're severely understaffed on my shift now. Everyone's working 6 days and sometimes upwards of 50 hours a week.
It's one of the things that would keep me from just walking off a job even if the conditions warranted it.
Also one of the many emotions and tools used by companies to f over those who are employed. Being stigmatized by your peers because you refuse to participate in something wrong and feeling guilt simply because they're willing to accept an abuse doesn't mean you're wrong, it means you're being manipulated into taking the fault of an authority onto yourself.
*and the ventilation system was broken since I got there.
Not sure where the end of that sentence went =/
Heh... wanna sit in the "I accidentally messed up my meaningful post with a mistake or typo" corner with me?
Honestly there are times where I think I just live in that corner. Got myself a little garden of grammatical mistakes just ripe for the pickin'.
