I think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown... - Page 2

post #31 of 46
Thread Starter 
So here's the story-- My boss takes one look at me this morning and says to go home, I can't work like that. It doesn't fit the uniform and I could slip in the kitchen. I said that there are non-slip covers I can wear. She says it doesn't matter, I could get hurt. Yeah, I'm a waitress and it will be a pain in the butt given the bootie and such, but as long as I have a section close to the kitchen, it shouldn't be too bad.

!?!?!??! What the %^&*! This lady is a witch anyway and walks around the restaurant looking for things you are doing imperfectly so she can call you on it in front of your customers (she will say you need to take a tray if you decide not to to carry one fricking glass, little retarded stuff like that... in front of your table). She's on the biggest power trip I've ever seen in a boss. I hate her guts.

So I just called her so she could clarify. She said to take it up with Karl, the big boss. Which I will. Because he's reasonable and I think he'll think she's being retarded. I have my doc's note, and I can deal with the pain, so **** off... thank you very much. I can't afford a week off work because Ms. Witch doesn't like the idea of me serving with a brace on my foot (did I mention that someone has a back brace, and someone else wears wrist braces on both wrists? and that I've seen someone else wear this kind of bootie before too?).

Ugh. I'm hoping the head manager will take my side.

Sorry for the rant. I'm thinking of looking for a new job anyway. I love waitressing, but the environment there is just awful.

That sounds like a direct violation of the American's with Disabilities Act which covers businesses with 15 or more employees. You can perform the job with only minor accomodation from them. I don't know for sure as I'm not an attorney.

Do check with whomever is in charge. They are the ones who take the ultimate responsibilily.

It is against the law for that woman to do that. Please take it up with the person above her! Would you like me to smash that heifer with Susie's hammer for ya? What a she devil! I'm sorry she was so rotten to you. How is you foot feeling tonight gorgeous? I had surgery on both feet a few years back and had a boot cast on each foot for several months Talk about walking funny I hope you get to feeling better soon!

Hi Starry! Thanks for asking! I'm going in to the big whig tomorrow. Keep fingers crossed for me... and I'll be doing the same for your doc appt!

My foot is VERY stiff, but a little less swollen, and I no longer feel shooting pains every time I put weight on it, so I guess it's going really well. I just can't walk on it without the bootie or it feels like I'm going to twist it some odd way again. Putting weight on the ball of my foot and walking normally doesn't work mainly just because it feels unstable. The drugs help. The drugs always help.

Sending Godiva healing vibes and hoping that you find a solution to your financial problems soon

I'm so sorry you guys are having such a rough time - it's not fair when bad things keep happening to nice, hard working people!!!

Good luck with the big boss today, and if he agrees you should have even a couple of days off, then take that time to go searching for a better job anyway! This place you're at sounds horrible!

I can't believe the manager was such a you know what! Sorry so much as hit you at once. They always say things like this make us stronger. Although when your the one going thru it, it doesn't seem so.



When I need a laugh, I just look at your siggy

I am so sorry that everything is going wrong for you at the same time. I am glad that you are with your Mom - it sounds like she really needs your help. I hope that you can convince her to go to the doctor.. When I took care of my Mom, sometimes I would try and use "guilt" to make her go. In other words, I would tell her how worried I was, and I would feel so much better if I just knew what was going on. Usually, she would end up going - or matbe she went just to shut me up. Good luck and good vibes to you and your family!

This lady doesn't know which way is up. She called me this morning and said I could come into work. So I did. But boy-oh-boy, am I paying for it!! My foot looks like a big sausage right now, and my toes look half the length they were because my foot is swollen so badly! I have an ogrefoot! I was in tears towards the end of my shift because I was in so much pain. It's almost like they kept me on longer just to teach me a lesson or something. :rollseyes:

It hurts less without the boot, but I have to wear the boot to work and do it all over again tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it.
Yeah, I need the money... but I'm beginning to wish I did have a few days to recuperate. I'm never going to heal if it keeps swelling like this.

On a positive note, I did well in all my exams so far this semester.

Congradulations on your exams! That is definitely positive news! I am sorry your foot is still hurting- it will not get better without resting it. Are you keeping it elevated/proped up when you are at home? Try to do that and not walk on it too much at home if you can since you're having to stay on your feet soo much at work. / Did you ever get an opportunity to talk to the other boss? I'm sending lots of feel better vibes your way sweetie
