About to lose my job for no reason!
A little background info for all of you. I work at Walmart doing the crappiest job there. I push shopping carts into the building. I get underpaid to do the most work in the **** store, if you don't believe...come try it for a couple days at 8+ hours a day. However, I'm not here to complain about my crummy job. I'm here to complain about how bad things happen to good people, because bad people like to have fun.
Tonight another "Stockman" as they like to call it, came over to me while I was working and jumped on my machine while it was moving. I told them to get off or I would get in trouble. I had to managers in front of the store do nothing as they just stood there. I didn't have a radio to call for some assitance so I just continued to do my work.
They take the key from the machine, try to punch me and do other bullcrap things to piss me off. I saw my 2 managers walk in as the other kid and his brother walked away.
Another employee came to get me and tell me my managers wanted to see me. I thought they were going to ask me what happened and other stuff. Instead I GET IN TROUBLE!!!!!!!! Yes, you read it right! I GOT IN TROUBLE BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE MESSED WITH ME. They jumped on the machine while it was moving and that is a safety hazard so I GOT A WRITTEN COACHING which is next to getting canned (The next step is writing a letter; kissing ass, so I can keep my job...hell no I'm not begging for a ****ty job).
I really can't believe this sh1t. I work harder than anyone in my department...work overtime when people decide to call off because it's raining or too hot/cold. They said they would have a talk with him next time he comes in to work.
I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get a written warning, but I got one because I already had a verbal coaching...and you know why?
WALMART DOES NOT ACCEPT DOCTOR EXCUSES, ONLY EMERGENCY ROOM PAPERS. So for that week that I couldn't walk because I pinched a nerve in my back (Dad's a Chiro...so it's all good), I got in trouble because I couldn't come to work. It's even worse because they never told me that they don't accept excuses...so WALMART's philosophy is, "We won't tell you what your doing wrong, but we will still fire you for not knowing what is wrong"!!!!
I know life isn't fair, but this is F'ing ridiculous.
I guess I'm gonna have to use that graduation money for gas now since I'll probably get yelled at tomorrow for wearing glasses or something...oh, I have gel in my hair, I hope I don't get fired!!!!!
