I work a part time job every weekend overnight, love the company and the people I meet but this month I was so fed up I almost quit Thank God I didn't quit because everything worked out in the end. Here is the story.
I took of much of the month of August because I did some traveling to Jamrock and I needed to recoup from the summer in grad school. I wasn't worried because I had almost a week of vacation time that I planned on using and planned for it to be on the paychecks following the days I took off. When it wasn't I didn't have a fit, I just wrote my manager a email and she said it would be on the next check. Well... it wasn't on the next check either ( so basically I went a month with out getting paid), then I had to become the Angry Black Woman on them. Don't you know I got my money in cash this week. I was highly pissed because three automatic payments came out my account with no money in it and I had overdraft fees ( Thankfully BOA paid the bills but it left me with a negative balance).
Today I came to the job to pick up cash to cover the overdraft fees, that they paid for. Everything was taken care of just the way I wanted it.
I wonder if this would have happened if I didn't get all ABW on them. Could it be true that nice people finish last in the workplace?
Until next time, think prosperous thoughts
