Today, at work, I dropped two bottles of wine on the floor. Unbelievably, they both didn't break. That, however, did not stop my boss from taking a few points away on my evaluation. My $3 raise is now reduced to $0.25. FML

A1NoSauce tells us more.

OP here! Just a follow up on what happened. Yesterday, about 2 weeks after the initial incident my regional manager came in. After explaining the situation and having them check my records(tardiness, productivity, etc.), he also was flabbergasted as to how I wasn't able to get the raise I deserved. He then dragged my boss off into his office to have a very stern conversation with my boss, he then announced to the whole staff that my boss would no longer be working at our store, and we'd have a new one transferring in very soon. I was overjoyed. But, not as much as when my RM pulled me off to the side again and told me that instead of getting the regular $3 raise, they'd triple it instead. I got a raise of about $10 which still keeps a bright smile on my face even while I write this. Thank you for all the comments! Although, I'm not sure why most of you thought I was female. :p

Oh what a jerk ! Seems like he only needed a reason .Cheap man.

Well on the bright side he didn't dock you any pay. Either way it's absurd.

If she's full time, he docked her $110.00 per week.

#20 What I think #1 is trying to say is OP isn't making any less than they did before

It does not say anywhere that boss was a man. you man hater

#32, while I agree that it's wrong to make assumptions, people will most likely automatically think that the boss is a man due to the fact that women are rarely in positions of power within working environments.

Wow because accidentally dropping something makes you unworthy of a raise. That's crazy. Hope you find a better job.

Well that escalated quickly..

Your boss is a dick. Is there anyway you can talk to his supervisor about the situation?

I dont think you know what a boss is do you

There could be possibly someone higher then OPs boss or an HR person.

If it's a family owned restaurant he may be the highest person in charge. Though, I would still try and figure out a way to get the raise you deserve.

OP could talk to the store owner, the franchisee, or someone in corporate, #16

That's a really dumb reason to take away a raise, everyone accidentally drops things from time to time

Was this comment even necessary?

Potatoes are ALWAYS necessary.

#8 no, your comment wasn't necessary at all.

At least you didn't have to clean anything up

I think she'd prefer to clean something up as opposed to losing a $3 raise.

they will look for anything to lower your raises

that's extra booze money for you crappy boss
