I talked to my boss and he knew my partner was going to be late. Well, isn't that *censored* special. Why wasn't I told? Holy *censored*.

I'm such an *censored*. I guess the only way to get anywhere is to be an irresponsible dick. I guarantee you this kid will be my boss one day and when that happens I'm quitting.

I've been trying to hit level 3 in NICET then I could get my license and start my own small fire alarm company doing small jobs by myself.

The problem with that, "If you don't like your chair..." thing is I have a house that I'm struggling to keep, a wife and two kids. What the hell am I supposed to do? It's not like I can walk away from this company and go into another. So, I try the best I can and just keep doing what I feel is right. I've tried telling this idiot that this is important. But he still lives at home and he doesn't care.

So, I heard from this idiot and he told me he was on his way. That was at 10:30 this morning. It's now 12 and he's still not here. I got a message from him a little while ago, "Dude, I'm in bad shape. I'm throwing up."

So I threw some oil on the fire.

"Perhaps you should call [REDACTE], this way he can find someone to go to the bank for you tonight. Since, you know, you clearly can't make it in."

'Shut the F up.'

"Why don't you get your ass to the job and make me. Oh, that's right. Because you're too busy sleeping and throwing up because you obviously don't know when enough is enough. You couldn't wait one more day to act like a complete and total tool. You had to do it the night before you have to work an overnight at a multi-million dollar customer's site. That's pretty irresponsible."

I got no response for over an hour then I get.

"I guess I should come in and get the tools."

You *censored* think? He just doesn't get it. I get pissed because these aren't his jobs. They are mine. My customers. My accounts. If an account is lost because he's an idiot it doesn't reflect on him. Corporate isn't going to bear down on him. They'll come down on me. Sure, he'd ultimately lose his job in the end over it because I'm not going to hesitate to throw him under the bus but he can't seem to grasp that it's my responsibility to make sure these inspections get done and get done properly. Because in the end, if they don't, I'm the one who has to answer for them.

I'm hoping I'm done with this job before he gets here. Once I'm done, I'm going home. Then he'll have to come to my house to get the tools.

Dude you're caught in a Twilight Zone episode :D What the heck kind of human resources dept. does your company have? :D

I worked on a painting crew way back when in Florida. Stevens and Sons Painting. 1980, things were booming. That guy was a good ole boy and he needed crews. When I got hired he was joking, and I'll never forget this, he said in a southern drawl : "If it breathes, I'll hire it. If it don't work out I'll pay you for a day and we'll part company as friends." HAHAHAHAHA :shock: I worked with some scarey scarey dudes on that gig. It was decent money for Florida at the time, the pay scale there was way low; they used to say, oh well you also get paid in sunshine. :lol:

The HR department is a about 1500 miles away.

He's like a child. We just went to lunch and we come back and he falls asleep in the truck. So, I pack up and tell him, "Ok, let's go get this done." and he says to me, 'Hold on. I need 10 more minutes.' I roll my eyes and get out of the truck and come in. It's about 20 minutes later and the idiot still isn't in the building.

I wish I could just afford to stop working. Because I'm honestly sick of people like him. I'd rather just stay home so I don't have to deal with anyone.

Why do you have to be his taxi service, I used to pick up a guy that lived on my way to work & I made it clear he only had to walk a little over a block & if he wasn't there when I pulled in & got my cup of coffee from the store I was gone. In 3 years he only missed once & I waited a couple minutes a handful of times when the weather was bad, it was up to the employee to provide their way to & from work.

Because the kid is a democrat and his is entitled to a republican carrying his load. You havn't been paying attention very well to the occupy movement or "O"man. ;)
What's that? IOF is an independent?? Well that is worse because he is probably clinging to guns and god so this will better ground him in the reality that others face in daily life. If we all adopted a democrat, welfare would be cut in half!

Klook, what makes you think that only democrats are non workers & what do politics have anything to do with this thread? For the most part everyone has been keeping on the subject at hand. So never mind an answer to the first part unless you want to start a new subject.

Nah, just busting your b***s because I ain't working either and I was bored. Really Sam, do you think anyone in here expects you to answer a question??? You live in your own reality for sure. Find me a young person, on the dole, couple of kids, you know the deal, that will vote for the party that wants them to go to work by cutting off the free ride. Yeah right. Maybe they don't exist in your blue sky world but they sure exist in Maine and Tenn. And i think that plays right into the topic of this thread. HAAHAAAA You answer a question!??? :shock: Divert and spin away.

It is surprising Sam that you would advocate for not being this sloth's taxi service. The very party you cling to feels this young man is due our respect and care. And we should "understand" that he is "different" and we need to "accommodate" him at every turn. And it is the employer that is the problem in not providing him transportation to and from work. These are the ideals of the modern Democratic party. I see it everyday. Free auto's and insurance, cell phones, reduced utilities, free "Cadillac Health Care" free tuition for illegal aliens and Social Security for them as well. Yet who pays for all of this? And how?

The mind set of "I'm on Fire's" co-worker is not unique. It is an ever growing segment of our population and it is only going to get worse. The only hope to stop it is to sterilize these blobs so they don't reproduce. The old adage of monkey see monkey do applies... sadly. :sick:

Every state is different but half or better of the stuff you claim as far as I know isn't true at least in Pa. & in reality the last reform that I know of was the welfare to work program put in by Clinton, now when was the last thing done by a republican being that they were in for a much greater amt. of time?
To get back on this subject the lack of a work ethic is one of the main reasons I went out of my last business, couldn't get people that wanted to do a little work. I did however do a sale about two weeks ago & had to rent a church hall in a declining area & had so much good willing help I never even when down for it, didn't make much but I knew that going into it.

Sam

It must be nice having those rose tinted glasses of yours. Everything that I wrote is the truth. Sadly there is more that I didn't post. When government provides services like this it doesn't take a genius to figure out that a sizeable portion of the population will take full advantage of it, and they are encouraged to do so. Once "hooked" on the freebies, those "freebies" become just as addictive as a drug. And that is what the Democratic party wants. People enslaved and dependant on the government and they have been very successful in doing so as well.

You might be surprised Sam about what the Commonwealth Of PA offers. Dig around. You might learn something.

Then why hasn't the republican party done anything to stop it? As I said look it up, think about it which party has done nothing about it for the longest? We as a people elect a bunch of cowards time & time again, anyone that will even threaten to riot or even worse not vote for them is thrown a cookie like you would a dog & for most but not all it has continued in the home life, kids get money (not an allowance) we used to have to do chores for that, they get money for what they want (not need) they need because they are programed to do so & many parents just don't want to hear it. I'm not saying anybody here but I'm sure we all know of someone if we ourselves won't admit to it. If you were raised getting money for nothing you know of nothing else.

Because when one party keeps promising ice cream and keeps bringing in more ice cream recipients the other party is powerless to oppose them.
