So, I must say that today, work literally sucked. Sometimes, I hate hate HATE my job with a very strong passion. Sure, most of the time it's great. It's easy, I don't really ever have to worry about something not going right at my job. Sounds pretty simple. Which most of the time it is. I usually get myself up in the morning and off to work with my book handy. I get in there, set up my interviewing station, and start dialing. At my job, they specifically tell us that we can play computer games, or read while dialing all we want. They do this so that we don't all go insane from doing nothing but dialing for 7 in a half hours straight every day. So, that's what I do...I either sit there and play mine sweeper, solitaire, or read my book. So today was the very last day of our project...It was slow, and well, boring. I got really no leads, and lots of DQ's. Well, usually that is not a problem as long as I am making my calls, which I most certainly was. However, one of the project directors didn't seem to think so. So, usually between 1 and 2 the job is ALWAYS slow. We get almost all answering machines or... "out to lunch"s, that is usually when I get into my book while I am on the dialer. Well, today one of the Project Director's decided to sit in the calling room and well, dial. So I guess during that time she decided to "observe" me. Well, apparently while she observed me she made the big assumption that I was not dialing, so she tried to have me sent home. Well when my supervisor Bruce brought that to my attention--i was NOT happy. Not one tiny bit. Infact, I pretty much had a melt down. Silly, I know but firstly--we have pretty much NO work this week which is stressful enough, and then she tried having me sent home for something that CLEARLY was not true?? Yeah, doesn't exactly fly with me. So I went to Bruce, and Dave and told them how I did not think that was fair at all, because I know for a FACT I was dialing...consistently. I told them they could even look up on the call log and see that I was dialing consistently, and of course they believed me because they know I don't usually just slack off and not call. So, they let me stay. BUT, that did not changed the fact as to how upset I was. I just do not think it's fair that someone can do that without giving any kind of evidence to prove that kind of thing. Just gave me much much more motivation to go out and continue looking for another job. Or a second one atleast, so during times like these, where we have no work...I can count on something.
Ok, I'm done venting. :)
