In case you’re wondering, yes, in fact, I am back. I’m decicded not to even bother with content, why should I? I love my site the way it is. I’m also pleased to great you with this new layout, which is unusually bright for my personality. If you can’t read the text or find errors, let me know. I’m sure I haven’t worked all of it out.
FUNNY.. It’s extremely funny how somebody gets sued for anything these days. Especially just for delivery cookies, something as harmless as that. It’s basically like suing the government for tripping over your own feet on a city road; it’s just completely ludicrous.
HOW’S THIS? Bush is cutting/tightening the budget and it will cut almost 7.5 million dollars a year to keep teenagers off the streets and for vocational programs. Let me tell you, Bush is doing a great job. How many more kids are going to be killed a year now, because Bush was trying to save about 400 million dollars on a program. Oh hell, what does he even care?
The ‘Leave No Child Behind’ program is doing just fabulous. I haven’t even heard anything about this program, it’s just like it went “poof.” Which with Bush it probably did. Isn’t the President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, doing a wonderful job? Yes, I do believe that was sarcasm.
SICK CHICK. Why for the love of all humanity, would you want to SKIN a cat? What kind of sick twisted mind do you people have these days? Are you incapable of releasing your anger, to take it out on a CAT? It’s sick, and morally/ethically wrong. This woman should definitely get reported. She’s some sick weird-o who probably thinks it’s fun to skin cats. Let’s skin her.
SCREWED. I work at Kroger and they are part of the Union which means basically everyone has something called seniority rights. If someone who is below you has more hours than you do, then you can take his or her hours.
I was scheduled to work no hours during the week of 02/06/05-02/12/05, but someone below me was scheduled for 14 hours. I asked whom I must speak to in order to “bump” their hours. I went and talked to our new manger, Linda, who asked me if I was available for those hours. I told her yes, I could do those hours and she said she’d had the schedule changed.
Well, when I went into work on Saturday the 5th, the supervisor/accountant, Peggy, told me I couldn’t bump Hannah because of my availability form. But yet, the MANGAER said it was all right as long as I could work those hours. I got screwed out of hours for a week, so I now have to call the union. I read the book and this is what it says about hours:
Section 8.4 Claiming of Hours: If a less senior employee is scheduled hours that a more senior employee is entitled to, the more senior employee must notify the manager within twenty-four (24) hours after the posting of the schedule and the schedule will be changed accordingly.
In the event the Employer refuses to change the schedule, employee(s) involved shall be paid straight time for all hours lost, provided it is a valid claim.
Basically what that is saying even though Peggy screwed me, when I contact the Union, I will get paid for those 14 hours that I lost. Not only that, but I was told that I wouldn’t take just ONE day, that I had to take the entire week, but my friend was allowed to take one day. I’m going to report Kroger for that. I guess the Union does pay off (literally).
Apparently they went ahead and bumped Hannah, so I was suppose to come in to work today, and didn’t even know it. It sucks, because Saturday when I looked at the schedule, it hadn’t been changed, but they had printed out a new one, and then forgot to get rid of the old one (which was the one I looked at). Now Jenni (Amanda Brown’s sister) is pissed off at me. It’s not my fault that the new schedule wasn’t posted in the back, nor did I get the right one up front.
