I've been working in customer service related work since my first mcjob. Ya ya, i know all jobs are technically customer service... I'm talking about dealing with the general public. Jerks, morons, idiots, old people, inbreds... Get them all. Its to the point where I hate each customer until they prove to me they are not a parasite to the world. Ya ya ya... they keep me employed. But one more complete brain dead hack of a human, I may just snap. I know the job market is tough right now, so I have to stick this out. What makes it worse, is that the only reason i am still at this job is because after i had a better job lined up, my boss told me he was going to go work for a local company in town and he needed someone to run this place. He said he wanted me to do it. He asked me what they were going to start me at over there, and he started paying me that to stay. That was in april. HE IS STILL THERE!!!!!! He is there until about 2, when i am worn out and want to kill a unicorn, and then he leaves and all of a sudden i have to be in charge and put on a smile. Same thing on saturdays. I've told him what i would be making after this time at the other company, but he doesn't take the hint. I'm at the point where I feel like giving him my key, telling him to start paying me my old wage and just staying there until I find another gig. But wait. He has to sell the place to work for this other company. He had it basically sold. He will be gone on the first..... NOVEMBER FIRST!!!! HE IS STILL THERE!!!! So, do I tell him monday when he is back from his "business he needs to handle" (AKA his kid plays travel hockey and he wants to go get drunk at the marriot in anaheim) to give me a couple more bucks an hour, or "demote" me and pay me my old wage just to take some stress off me... Or do I just stick out the BS and if I get another job, tell them I will start the next monday and tell him to stuff it? /angry rant. i need a hug.
