Today, I was at work at the airport. I got called up to a plane's cargo hold, and thought I'd finally learn how to use the loader. Turns out they just needed me to weigh something down, effectively making me ballast. Then my boss told me to get the hell off, after which I hit my head hard climbing out. FML

That's rude, it always sucks to be unappreciated at work (assuming you're a good employee). Hope it pays well!

Baby steps OP, you'll get their soon enough

OP's probably new or not experienced yet, seeing as they don't know how to use the loader. Being at the bottom of the totem pole doesn't necessarily mean they aren't appreciated, we all start somewhere. Don't worry OP, bosses have their asshole moments or bad days so don't take it personally. Just keep your head to the grindstone and soon enough you'll climb the ranks. Depending on what type of loader you use, you might need training so opt for that requirement. Bosses will see that as you actually giving a **** about your job, which is a pretty rare commodity nowadays.

AirPort work pays decent, but as a ground handler, you're really at the bottom in the firm. OP should rather talk to the RAMP-instructors about learning to use the loader, rather than hope for it to happen randomly. I think we might have a special course you need to take before learning to use the actual machine, though I don't have loader, so I'm not 100% sure there.

Their "soon enough" just isn't good enough!

#16. thanks for not making me the asshole with the grammar correction.

Actually "their" was used properly

I'm embarrassed for the people who think the proper form of there/their was used. It's 'there'

maybe it is time to switch employers

Assuming OP is trying to become a commercial pilot, I'd strongly disagree with this. If they're not, I still disagree, you just do what's asked of you. May suck, but that's life.

******* hell 3, you don't have a job, do you? Getting bitched at by your boss is something everyone goes through. You deal with it, fix your mistake, and get back to it. I haven't had a single job where my boss didn't bitch at me one time or another, some worse than others, but nonetheless I didn't bawl like a bitch and quit my ******* job. All my jobs were hard labor minus a month at McDonalds, and if I ****** up I really could have been hurt so the boss man yelling at me was him trying to prevent such an outcome.

everyone wishes they had a moment to tell their boss off. Yours will come OP, yours will come.

What about those that are self employed?

Well, that sucks OP :/ keep doing your job real good and I'm sure you'll get to work the loader soon enough :)

"I'm not getting paid enough for this crap"

if you were the ballast you should have been wary of getting off. physics bro.

At least you were useful? Keep at it OP, your day will come.

Bitch work doesn't go unnoticed. At least not by a good boss.

I see a workers comp claim in your future.
