did you poop a virgin because that shit is tight  
I'm pissed off at Phillip's fucking job.

This has been his schedule all week.

And he has to go in at 4 am tomorrow morning (saturday) until they tell him to leave. He thinks that it will be a twelve or fourteen hour day. Then, they switched his schedule to work 10:30pm-7am Sunday-Thursday.

I'm not pleased. Our plans have to be changed. We can't go to Hardy three weeks from now, so we're going two weeks from today. And a week from today we're going to Little Rock. It's gonna be buuuuuusy. But fun hopefully.

I know it sucks and stuff, but aren't you thankful that he even has a job in this recession!? :)

yeah, i am thankful. i probably don't seem like it cause i complain so much, but it's so frustrating for him to be jerked around when they said he'd be on 7-3:30 for six weeks from his hire date, but they're switching him. he's pretty upset about it...more than me (understandably so)

I'd be pissed too, and he works in manufacturing right? From my experience working in manufacturing they are nearly always understaffed and always have people who have been there for decades who are a pain to deal with and sometimes the person who was hired last gets the short of it. I'm sorry. :(

Yeah, he works at Viskase. They make the red bologna wrapper and the casing that forms hotdogs. They don't shut down - not even for holidays.

And the shitty thing is, once he's trained, he goes to twelve hours shifts. If the person that is supposed to come in after him calls in or is no call, no show, then he has to stay six extra hours, meaning he'd work an eighteen hour shift. And more than likely have to come back the next day. I have manufacturing with a passion. I know it's essential to life, but they treat their workers as just an employee number on an assembly line.
