OK, so my bosses are horrible parents, and a while back they were talking about the fact that they will be going of of birth control for a few months and see what happens before he gets snipped (two kids too late). But then my one boss was saying that they were going to just see what happens. "If god means for us to have another child, that's okay. If not, that's fine too." Um these idiots were having money troubles already. Yet they want to chance another kid on the mantle of 'gods will'? Newsflash! If you get pregnant, it's not because god wanted you to be. It's because you initiated a natural biological reaction at just the right time. If god wanting you to have a child, then you could just have one at any time. Sex resulting in the conceiving of a child is beautiful, but in no way a divinely miraculous event. This is a completely ignorant attitude that attempts to remove the subject from blame.
Well today was another similar even. But first the events of last week...
Well yesterday was horrible. Something has seemed wrong with my bosses for a bit now. But it came to a head yesterday. Basically, they met with and my friend and here is what the outcome was:
• Pay cut by $1.10/hr.
• Changed from salary to hourly.
• Cut from M-F to M-Th.
• Cut from 40 hours a week to 25.
• No more medical benefits. (was 100% paid before)
• My friend, one of the best I could ever ask for was laid-off.
So I work less time, make less money but am going to be asked to get the same or more done! Not to mention that one of the few bright spots has been removed with my friends departure. Sadly I'm stuck though. I can't afford to quit without the guarantee of another job. Plus, I'm not so certain the how long the shop will last, even with all this cuts. My one boss was like, "you always give your all, but there's always more. We're going to be doing more. There's a lot more in my tank too." I literally had to fight saying that it's easy to have a lot more to give when you did nothing in the first place. Why I continue to be civil, I'll never know. The staff is now just me and my two bosses. I'll be there the least of the three of us, but am the most integral to everything getting done. I am way past stressed at the moment and really hope I can come up with a solution ASAP.
I would have posted this earlier but my modems AC adapter died on my last night... What a day.
Well, now they're talking about cutting the store hours, even though they 'need every sale we can get'. My one bosses friend is coming in from out of town, so they will likely close the store for a few days so they can entertain their friend. WHAT!?! Freaking idiots!
That brings us to today.
Their pastor was in the store today and my one boss was confiding to him about the situation with the store. She told him about letting my friend go, and he asked how she took it. He proceed say, "What's she have to be mad about. You have to do what you have to do. She should understand that." Um, how about for being fired when she was doing a great job? Well, my boss explained that she wasn't mad upset, but that she does have two sons to think about. Well, Mr. Judgmental then continues to insinuate that her two boss kids being born out of wedlock as to why this happened to her. My was too dense to catch this, and I sadly help my tongue as I was in the other room not supposed to be in on the conversation. When they got to discussing what they should do, he says "You just need to keep doing what you're doing. The lord provides. If he wants it to work it will. Nothing you do will change his will, so you should just pray that he makes it work." WTF!?! And my boss is eating it up and agreeing with him. What's wrong with with responsibility, taking your own action and taking the initiative to make an effort... ant effort? My idiot boss is now resigned to sit back and hope for the best. Um, how about getting off you ass and working, making sales or just doing something at all... This type of 'innocent bystander' thinking is just ridiculous, lazy and dangerous.
I just sent out a bunch of resumes, so I hope they work for me. But I give these idiots a month or two tops, before they have to close up shop...
So if I seem absent it due to the fact that I won't be able to get online at home until the end of the week and because I am job hunting like crazy.
