I’m tired and the fat cow sitting next to me is taking up half my seat as well as hers AND hasn’t heard of deodorant.” b) It was actually, well, true.
Anyway, I got called into my boss’s office at the start of my next shift and got told that someone complained about me.
I was completely puzzled because I couldn’t think of any way I’d have upset a customer…..until they showed me a series of photographs the person who must have been sitting behind me (slightly elevated due to the bus design) took of me and my phone screen saying they recognized me having served them in the store yesterday and now I was saying things like this and it reflects badly on the company and makes me look two-faced since I was polite to her yesterday and then being “nasty” about this lady.
My company replied to her by sending an email I could see on the print-outs saying it would be dealt with harshly because it was unacceptable from me.
Maybe it would be different if I was wearing something that identified me as an employee of the company, but I wasn’t, so quite frankly, I think I should be allowed to do and say what I want in my own time when I’m not identifying myself as a member of the company. Yes, I was nice to the email sender when working, but that is my job.
I don’t see why I owe everyone a Mother Teresa approach off the clock. It’s no one’s business what you write in private text messages to other people in your personal time.
At one point, my boyfriend texted me asking if I’d left work yet.
