New thread theme! You boys ready?! I was thinking back to some of my former jobs and thought I'd share some of the crazy stories from years ago. Feel free to jump in and share your brush with morons or that crazy year you spent in retail! So, first up: In the computer, we trust! My former boss at the post office used to bring in donuts for Saturday's, her hubby sometimes would bring in breakfast foods, and if your car won't start she would sometimes pick you up so that you can get to work. That and when we're going to be out late, she may grumble but she won't yell at us. But this one time, my boss got screwed and we all got reemed at the post office I used to work at. Strangely tho only through a e-mail and a *important* memo... We were getting yelled at because our MSP (managed service point) scans were off and we were just itching to get our routes added to. The only problem was when the boss pulled up our scan times and printed them out. Then I noticed something odd, how are we supposed to be back in the office before we scan our last point? Ah! There it is, those idiots higher up the management ladder never had readjusted for our earlier start and end time. So our first scan till the one BEFORE our last scan were a half hour off which would constantly put us a half hour over or under the scheduled scan time. The times were put through a forced update and many of us had to scramble in the morning to get our parcels, flats, letters, spurs, and accountable items earlier...when some of those things still aren't ready for us till later because of when FedEx will do a drop ship. (FedEx is a different story and since it caused trouble here will remain only hinted at.) These were the same idiots who expect a branch closed on Saturday's to bring in $3,000 worth of business. Again... all because the all-knowing computer said so. Idiot information in, idiot information out. <3 K.
