I am sure Josh will say he has to handle both and should not have any excuses not to be done before his shift ends.
Typical. You’re just expected to both. But there isn’t extra pay for it of course!
Josh, I think you misunderstand what is means to prioritize and delegate.
Funnily, today I walked by a guy at my job on the way to my department. I said, “Hey you! Work harder, work faster, do more, with less pay and less time to do it!”
At first he jumped, because he didn’t see me behind him. Then he laughed and said that was the company slogan.
Man, I don’t know how I will deal with it. Maybe Lunker can do Cooper’s work in the meanwhile or that rocket scientist guy. Multitasking is impossible when one task will take up your entire paycheck hours which SUCKS. At least when I was working in the library, each task was related to the library so that if I was working on one task it still counted in my pay. Poor Cooper.
This would be funny if only it weren’t so true.
Lily, I think Rocket Man was an elf only — that is, a holiday worker. Would be nice to see him though.
Yeah, he’s not qualified to work full time in a storeroom.
*laughs hysterically* It’s so cute that you think corporations care about what people are “qualified” to do.
One of the first classes required for management trainees in any MBA program is “cognitive dissonance.” Otherwise vestiges of common sense can creep in and make situations like this impossible to manage.
Grumbel’s must not be a big store if he can clean and organize the stockroom in one day… is Lunker working today?
Go above Josh’s head and ask Marla.
“Hey, why are there customers complaining about holes on the shelf? I thought this stuff magically appeared with no input from people I diverted to other tasks.”
Silly Josh, the corporate solution is to cut payroll hours AND demand more work gets done.
Man, this feels so familiar, since today our managers lectured us that the DM thinks our store looks like crap, and cleaning is THE. MOST. IMPORTANT. THING. So much so that they’re making us cease work a half hour before close just to clean. The DM doesn’t seem to care that we have a ton of customer jobs to do, and that we need those slow evening hours to finish jobs. No, those hours should be spent cleaning.
But when customers come in, angry that their stuff isn’t ready yet, the DM won’t think we’re heroes for cleaning as he directed. No, he’ll be mad that we didn’t finish those jobs. Which we could have finished, but he wanted us to clean, so we cleaned, and now we’re in trouble for not finishing…
Corporate’s ability to be completely anti-logical just blows my mind.
What we need to produce is a “self-replicator” that, temporarily, produces an identical clone of oneself for the sole purpose of performing a second job at the same time. Then, literally, you can be in two places at once!
Unfortunately, that also happens to completely defy logic, so it fits perfectly in line with corporate. They seem to think those replicators exist. Why don’t they start selling them?
God, I hate Josh.
