What I'm gathering from all this, OP, is that you either go to work half-assing it and complaining all day like a bitch, or you don't show up at all. Way to go, YDI.

Learn what parallelism is in elementary English and apply it to your grammar. That way, you will seem like less of a moron when you try to shoot people down.

81 has a point. You weren't responding to the first comment; you just wanted your comment to be seen so you placed it at the top of the list. I foresee a slow, lonely death in your future.

#82: You might want to go take some elementary English yourself. #81's grammar is fine and there is no need for parallelism in this instance.

Thanks 112. Autoshot when you are neck deep in a hole, stop digging. If I was trying to shoot you down on the basis of grammar and mine was abysmal I would say fair enough, However, you decided to cling to the straws of irrelevancy. You saw I had you by the short and curlies and didn't like it.

^ I like how you are trying to act smart on the interwebs thinking it makes you cool. bit in reality you live on your parents couch at the age of 40.

Theres no one else i can complain to... at my store it goes: "normal" workers (me) < department 2ic > department manager < grocery manager < duty manager > head office > store 2ic > store manager. after that you get into this: store managers < regional managers < state managers < national manaagers < finacial managers. It is literally impossible for me to speak to anyone higher up (the boss in question is my store manager) a) because the regional is even more of a douche than my store and b) because the bosses higher than the stores only communicate with the stores, the store 2ics and the duty managers. ive never even met my regional. and yes, im looking for a new job... but theres no where so far that can offer me the same wage, hours and benefits. wish me luck? =P

Well someone had to say something that one could do in the practical world without being fired. I still think OP should talk to the boss, and if that doesn't help, the boss's boss.

i tried to explain, i stated all my symptoms and said that i wasnt up to the job ( i work in a very high-standard retail store. its the "example store" that the rest of the stores are meant to follow, so the bosses are all really strict and uptight) and i couldnt come in. The bosses at my store (the department managers, the duty manager and the store managers, in this case i spoke to the store manager, top of the tree) all throw around the phrase "unprofessional" so much its ridiculous. They use it whenever anyone of their workers does or says something that they find personally offensive. Its no way to run a business, and store moral is at the lowest point possible. I would quit, but im finding it very hard to find a new job that can get me the same hours and pay. ha. fml -_-'
