I was working at a haunted house and my job was to basically get violently murdered every time a new group of kids came in. One time as the kids were clearing out, one of their dads groped me.
A few weeks ago at the clothing store I work for, a woman came in demanding a refund for some destroyed-style jeans her daughter had purchased, which she claimed were damaged. I politely asked her if she could please point out the damage for me and hand me her receipt (which she didn't have). She replied by asking me if I was "f*cking retarded" and motioned to the intentional rips down the front of the jeans.
I was babysitting a very spoiled little girl and her mother asked me to get her to clean her room before the maid came. The room was not that messy, but two soiled pull-ups lay on the floor. The little girl agrees to carry one pull-up to the trashcan downstairs, but proceeds to throw a 30 minute tantrum because I refused to dispose of the other pull-up for her. The girl was 8 years old.
Our only IT guy at work won't let me download Firefox because he's afraid it will give my computer a virus. Instead, I've been using an out-dated version of Internet Explorer.
As I turned 16 I decided to get a job at McDonald's. During my first hour, I was asked to work in the back-room, as the guy in their was having some problems, I was told. It turned out the guy couldn't read (not so much of a problem with that, I'm just setting a scene). Anyway, after the hour I was sent to learn French Fries. The guy teaching me was an odd sort mainly as he didn't utter a word to me. After 10 minutes, I saw he drop something into the vat of fat, just out the corner of my eye. He then went on to reach INTO the bubbling hot fat to fish it out whatever it was that he dropped. 5 minutes of screaming followed, he then went to the hospital. After that some one got electrocuted playing with a plug socket.
Honest.One love McD.
Today a 'fresh off the streets' bum came into work looking for a job and we told him we were full staffed and not hiring. He was nice but kind of loopy and giggly. He then said he had a Louisville slugger bat at home that he would happily use on new hires' kneecaps in order to get the job. He was laughing but, I don't get the idea he was joking.
I used to work at a movie theater a 20 theater cineplex, and one day a big festival in town was rained out. We had three ushers on shift(the clean up people), and one had to tear tickets, well every movie was sold out, and the managers refused to call anyone in. Well the other usher and I had to push all the trash under the seats, and at the end of the day i left a note to the Night crew saying sorry, and why it was so dirty. the next day my manager chews me out for telling the night crew how he was to cheap to have some more people come in.
I work in the IT Dept. We had a server crash over the weekend.
I came in on Monday and had our HR manager ask me to make sure we let her know in advance the next time it's going to happen.
