I'm a god damned babysitter.
We've been at a Critical Site Inspection all week. A bank. Critical Site means that there are places we can't go without an escort. It also means that if I go into someplace I'm not supposed to, shut something down, touch something that I'm not supposed to I could potentially lose my job. All week, this kid has bitched that I just walk around with him and do nothing. I carry the keys, and the card access. I open doors and pull stations. When I explained to him that I don't have to do anything he dropped the tools and refused to do anything. Which meant I had to do it. Otherwise, it wouldn't get done. Now, we were supposed to work on Saturday the 13th. Tomorrow. But the customer moved it up to tonight Friday the 12th. Which slightly annoys me. Because now, I lose out on 8 hours of OT. My wife works nights so I need to be home for my kids.
So, this idiot ponies up and enthusiastically professes, "I'll work the overnight!!" and when asked if he needed help he says, "No man, I can do it myself."
Good everyone thinks. So, yesterday we hustled to finish everything we could during the day leaving him with the daycare, horn test and women's rooms. Perfect.
Not so. Yesterday afternoon he goes, "Yo, I'm going to the Yankee game tonight." to which I reply, "You need to work tomorrow. You have to get the tools from me for Friday night." and he says, "Yeah man, no worries. I'll be there."
Here we are Friday morning. I HAVE NO *censored* CLUE WHERE THIS JACKASS IS!!! I haven't heard from him. I being the idiot I am go to where we meet and sit there for forty *censored* minutes expecting this ass clown to show up. I text him six times and get no response. I then text my boss and no response. Why isn't my boss answering? OH RIGHT!! He went to the game too.
So angrily, I put the truck in gear and floor it out of the parking lot. Tires squealing. I hop on the highway to the job, by myself as *censored* usual.
This retard is going to stay home. Get PAID for it then he'll go to the job tonight and GET OVER TIME!! MY OVER TIME!! I was supposed to work but can't because it got moved.
Oh, but the best part is. The two jobs I'm doing today are fairly close to my house. Job one is a bit further job two is quite close. This idiot is going to text or call me later on in the day, "Hey man sorry, can you drop the tools off at my house?"
To which I will reply, "*censored* off. Come get 'em."
He won't come get them. Then he won't go to the job. Then Monday morning I'll get a phone call, "The customer said no one showed up Friday night."
"Yup. Talk to the jackass who said he'd go but never showed up to work during the day to get the tools."
I'm done. I'm telling my boss from this point on no more partners. I'm not training these idiots anymore and I'm not babysitting them.
