Speaking of which, my mouth almost got me into trouble tonight.They told us before our shift that they were taking some of us out to work in other PDs. There were going to be a bunch of suits walking around and everybody had to look busy. So we were going to have to pick up the pace. OK.

A daily ritual of mine is to take the mis-picks and chuck them out of the truck while cursing out my pick-off guy. Basically I am the last line of defense for parcels. I have to make sure that each package belongs in my trucks before I scan it in and load it. The pick-off guy is supposed to sort the packages before they get to the trucks. naturally a few slip by. But also, they love to test the new people with fake packages. Just to make sure we are reading, and not just throwing everything in.

Anyway, I like to vent my years of repressed anger on my pick-off guy. It's all in good fun. I call him a bastard, and he says that he'll start ramming it in without lube. In other words, it's a very healthy "guy" work environment.

About 1 hour into my shift, I get another mis-pick. I chuck it out of the truck with the usual, "Enough with the goddamn mis-picks mother fucker!" Next thing I see is some supervisor's head peeking into my truck. One of those higher-ups I've never met before. He cautiously tells me that he loaded the package into my truck. And he continued to pound us with bad packages for the next 30 minutes.

I asked about it, and it wasn't my fault. My partner has been misloading too many packages so he had to be tested. I was just stuck with half of them since I was in the same truck.

Sorry. I don't know what to say.

Getting back to the old topic. My part-time supervisor got back at me on Friday. The trucks leftover from the NY black-out weren't going to come until this week, so the flow was light on Friday. He took the opportunity to give me over 30 bad packages in a row. Everybody was having a good time watching me run in and out of my truck carrying as many packages as I could back out. Say what you will, but we like to have fun at other people's expense as much as possible.

Last night was a bitch though. All those packages from the blackout came in right at quitting time. So we all had to stay 30 minutes more while we put the packages in any place we could. It was too late to load another truck.

Oh yeah. One of my supervisors told me that I should be getting paid more. I always come early and help set up my area. She told me that I should be getting paid for it. I did it because I always do stuff like that. I don't know why. I always like to show up early.

Because I'd just publish under one of my porn sounding pseudonyms. And that novel is a long way off.

I think it is because this site give all of us a screen of privacy where we can be honest with our emotions and thoughts. It feels intrusive when someone asks you a question that you don't want to answer and they persist at it. I seriously doubt that Silence thinks that you would do something bad to him or harrass him. It is just an issue of privacy.

That's what I originally said. I just like to have a certain level of privacy. Or perhaps I don't want everybody to know that my name is Shirley or Alice.

I only said harass because he told you no more than once and you still pursued it.

I'm pissed off. And this is not the way I want to start my weekend. Everything at work started out so great. All the new hires had to attend some meeting. Just a progress meeting and they gave out free movie tickets to people who were doing a good job. I got 2 tickets. One for having the least amount of misloads, and another ticket because I've shown up for every day of work. I thought, "great. Now I just need to find a date and I can make use of these tickets."

Then I got to my area. I always get a little pep-talk from some girl who works in another area. It's her job to keep us here. She tells me that people around my PD have been saying that I'm not doing my job.

So I guess there are people I'm working with that don't like me. I wish they'd just call me a cocksucking faggot every time I walked by instead of this. I have years of experience ignoring insults. But to go to the higher-ups and say that I'm not doing my job... Damnit. I am just so totally pissed off right now.

All I want to do is go to sleep and do nothing all day tomorrow. Screw the free movie(s) I got. I hate myself so much right now. What the hell did I do wrong to piss off some people that much?

It's not jealousy. It's just that some of the people I work with don't like me. I don't like this kind of attack. I was never much for work politics.

I've been taking crap from a few people in my PD for the last few weeks. Normally we're supposed to load about 1,000 packages a night. I've been averaging between 600-800 since I started working. Last week I've had less than that because they';ve been pulling me out of the truck more often. I've been helping the other guys by setting up trucks, closing them, clearing jams, stacking lines, recycling bad packages... basically, I've been the bitch of my area.

Still, I've been getting crap about not hitting 1,000 yet. I've been telling them for weeks to put me in a truck alone for an entire shift, and I'd break 1,000.

Well, last night everything came to a head. They were set to put me back on bitch duty for the night when I got into a row with my pick-off guy. At the end, he bet me $20 that I couldn't do it. My part-time supervisor was enjoying the argument. And I guess he liked the idea. He put me back in my old truck and for the first time I got to load without a partner. The bet was on.

3 AM rolls around and I have 1,197 packages. The pick-off guy left early so I didn't get the chance to be a nice guy and refuse his $20. But, this hopefully means that I'm not going to get any more shit about not doing my share of the workload.

I've been telling them for two weeks that the only reason I couldn't break 1,000 is because I had to split my numbers with a partner. My truck is a one person load anyway. So I've been told that I will be loading there alone from now on. Groovy.

hey hey. I knew this thread was buried somewhere.

They called me again this week. My application to be a driver's assistant during peak season went through. So for the next two months I'm going to be wearing the brown uniform and helping drivers in my area deliver packages door-to-door.

I also just took on two postions that opened up in my PD. Both the CERC guy and the Safety guy didn't want to do their extra duties anymore. So I get to do both of those now. It's 5 minutes of paperwork each night and I have to attend a meeting every week which I get paid for. I also have to visit all the new guys in my area and make sure they are doing OK and know their stuff. Not very hard, considering that we only have 1 new guy in our area.

I thought about applying for supervisor, but have decided against it for now. I want to try to lose a bit more weight and gain a bit more muscle before I take myself out of the loading bays.

Not all that exciting, but just filling those in who care to know.

Actually, my job is my life right now. I don't get out of the house otherwise. All I do the rest of the time is play video games and sleep.

When you are ready, you will get up from the video games, stretch, look in the mirror, smile, and grab your coat and go mingle. For now, you are doing just what you need to do. I bet you are very introspective. Are you looking for the good in you? Share that with others. What goes around, comes around.
