On today's episode of 'What?? Really?!?'


Secret_lade is at her desk preparing for orientation when she receives a phone call from the Corporate Contact Center.

"Hi, this is Bobby Sue. I have a call for you from an Amanda, she wants to talk about her orientation today."

"Ok, send her through."

Bobby Sue dropped the line and was immediately replaced by the screaming voice of a having a temper tantrum.

"Hi, this is [secret_lade]."

"Oh, heeeeyyyyy.... This is Amanda. I can't find no one to watch my . Can I just bring him with me to orientation?"

Are you fucking kidding me??

I must be on candid camera somewhere.....

I peered about my office but did not see any sketchy cameras or strange people milling about in the background.

"No, I'm sorry, orientation is considered to be an actual work day. You will be in a class with three other people and it would be unfair to them to have to listen to what I'm listening to right now while they are trying to learn."

Silence aside from the sound of her now crying .

"Would you like to try to reschedule? I'm on vacation next week but I will be having another orientation the week after?"

I was trying to be as nice as possible, after all I'd already waited a month for her to get her birth certificate so she would have two forms of I-9 identification.

This woman clearly did not want a job.

"Um.... Let me make a few calls to see if I can find a sitter. I really need to start this job right away."

And......

That was the last I heard from her. No call no show for orientation, no phone calls back to reschedule, no chance for employment now.

Good lord!

Happy Thursday!!

    Quoting Erogedyne:
    That sort of attitude toward work and wasting other people's time is far too common these days.
Work ethic is gone, i feel, in a lot of ways. When you can get away with everything because you know your employer is desperate to hang on to employees, a lot of people take advantage of that.

    I go thru this daily with an underling. She's a constant hit and miss.
Frustrating, isn't it?!? This girl is going to be a hit on our retention on top of all this now, too. Pisses me off considering my quarterly evaluations are based on hiring and retention.

    Wow!...just Wow! Millenial?
    I work with one. She's great when she's there! Key phrase...."when she's there!"
    Has some of the worst absenteeism, not counting her three week leave this summer to go help at church camp! Why do Millenials seem to have more aches and pains than my 60+ ass?
I call it the 'Entitlement Era'. They expect praise for showing up for work, demand to get their way or they will 'quit', and have the worst attendance.... Because the majority of them don't have to pay bills yet. They're still living at home or have parents that 'help' them because "It's all so hard". Yah, I work with a 27 year old that has a 2 year old and her parents pay her rent and car payment because they don't want her to struggle like they did. There lies the problem! Let them struggle!!

    Quoting lindoboy100:
    I'm curious now about how she thought she was going to be able to attend work at all if she couldn't make arrangements for cover to get to the orientation.......
I think she has a boyfriend who would be watching the kid while she was working, but you're 100% correct. What happens when the boyfriend can't watch the child and she's scheduled to work? She'll be calling in, guaranteed, at least once a week until she loses her job from attendance issues. Maybe that's her goal, to collect unemployment.

    It sounds as if she'd struggle to keep down the job even if she was orientated!
My gut tells me she'll work a week then NCNS. I hate that people do this kind of stuff and don't think twice about it. Where is the work ethic anymore??

    Quoting pagancountrygirl:
    Sounds like this is another instance of dodging a bullet. She most likely would not have been a good employee if she can't even have ID to show and make arrangements for her child while she's going through orientation. That's not exactly a minor detail there and I think Child Welfare frowns on a person hanging their child on a nail on the wall as a means of 'child care'. But in some cases, it may be an improvement over mom and/or dad.
I did see her in person once.... She was a Hood Rat. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt because you never know when someone is trying to change their life for the better, I just don't get that feel from this one, though.
