I use WhatsApp for messages from coworkers for work related messages - I like it and absolutely despise it at the same time...I got one coworker who will message me from the bathroom on WhatApp apologizing shes not feeling well...I never get the message until well after shes done and shes verbally apologized. I get work orders on it, which is why I havent gotten rid of that damn fucking app

She takes her phone in the bathroom with her at least 1/2 the time, if shes in there longer than 10 minutes thats when she messages me. I work in the back mostly, but if Im covering for her up front I keep my phone in the back. It grosses and feaks me out to no end when people take their phone into the bathroom

Well, i guess its kinda rude to read a msg and not reply to it. You should have blocked him.

This is why technology is also a very bad idea for businesses.

Technology isn't bad for business. It's actually great for business, it allows them to accomplish more. However, I will say that technology can be bad for employees. With technology, often people are now expected to always be plugged-in, always be reachable, it doesn't allow them to just leave work at work, like society used to do. Bad bosses (like this one) come to expect that their employees should always have work in mind, and be able to do work related stuff at anytime, even on their days off.

#14, that's not universally the case, sadly -- it can depend on the company, the position, and the local laws. Wish it weren't so (I hit 40 hours last week on _Tuesday_; at least I get comp time despite being salaried), but for some positions, that's how it is.

My boss tried to get me to cover a shift(in Massachusetts) while I was at my grandmother's funeral(in Indiana). I sent him a picture of the prayer card and he was very remorseful after that.

I like to let my bosses understand that when I am not clocked in that I would appreciate being able to enjoy my family and my personal time. Usually they get it and there's no harm done. I've only had 1 boss that didn't agree, but she also thought that her company was gods gift to humanity and even though it paid poorly, didn't have benefits (even though it was a hazardous job), and fucked you during tax season to save themselves money .... you should be lucky to work here and you need to answer her calls 24/7. so odds are in your favor that if you just say hey, got your message can we discuss tomorrow at work? they will be happy. then at work say hey sorry I didn't reply, I just prefer to give 100% of my attention to work related items and when I'm at home I have (wife,kids,pets,errands,etc) distracting me and I wouldn't want to make a poor decision because I was not focused at that moment.
