Now, before I begin describing the topic at hand, I think I should give you a little background on her. She may very well be Satan, and her grandson is a chip of the old, lazy block. I have a Summer job that involves menial tasks such as unpacking science kits, counting items, and repacking, as well as moving tons (literally) of things around. History of my boss, scenario 1: I am working, alone, on sorting, counting, and reloading a kit, a task which should take me roughly 16-18 hours. In 9, she started complaining that I was taking too long, and that I wasn't working (a claim which she makes all too often.) Scenario 2: I finally am given human companionship to work alongside, and as we cut lamination, a job which she assigned us, she lookes up FROM HER QUILTING to ask us "Shouldn't you be doing something?" Scenario 3: It's 4 PM, and the end of my workday (I start at 6:30 AM and have 30 mins for lunch) and she covers the microphone on her telephone, pausing from her dictation of her grocery list, and discussion of the Michael Jackson verdict, to tell me that I couldn't leave yet because I was 2 minutes late back from lunch. But today takes the cake! After countless occurances of her normal annoyances (Today, it was her grandson, nagging, 2 hour lunch, and wanting to leave 1:30 early), I am helping the other 2 guys load a truck with completed kits. They work from 7-4:30, and it was time for me to leave. I complete a couple more trips to try and evade her wrath, then say: "The other 2 guys are here until 4:30, and that should be more than enough to finish, so if you don't mind, I'd like to sign out" to which she replied "We're in the middle of a job" "I came here at 6:30 so I could get out at 4:00, and I'm not even getting payed for this time, so I'd like to leave for today." "FINE! Leave, if that's what you want to do!" she rants sarcastically, "And I don't think I need you to come in tomorrow either!" Pause. "No, on second thought, come in at 6:30, and I'll see if I need you then." Dumbfounded, I stand there speechless for a minute while she walks away. Ms. Menn, i call, to which she responds "I'm too busy to talk to you." How's that for job security? Oh, and she doesn't have the authority to fire us, as we are employed by central administration. I can't tell her off, because I need the money desparately, and because my parents both work in district. Sorry for such a long post, but I thought I'd outline the reason for my misery.
