I am so close to quitting Cosmo's because of all the needless drama it is insane. Basically the world is like high school. People judge you off the pot marks of your face and nothing else matters. Rumors spread like wildfire even if they are not true. Recently I have had some nasty ones being rotated to the point I almost got physical with someone who I knew started said rumor.
I have been harassed, bullied, and physically harmed, reported all of this to my management who has done the standard "I will talk to them and get back to you" bullshit. Nothing has been done and the problems are getting worse.
Want to know the most messed up part? This isn't even in my store but the store across the way. I have lost friends due to someone else's lies and been blamed for things that someone else did. When did it become ok to start rumors about people? And when does it become ok to blame someone else for you cheating on your significant other?
Tell me RHUers, when you find out that your friend's boyfriend is cheating on her with another woman at a party which everyone was invited to (yes this was a public place), wouldn't you tell that friend what was going on?
Yeah, I did. He tried to turn it on me saying that I was all up on him when in reality I was trying to keep him from falling to the ground he was so damn drunk. He left dents in my car because he fell on it and I have yet to go after him for it. Even people who don't know me are harassing me at work, on Facebook, and any other time they get a chance.
Thankfully none of them have my number so they can't text me. My friends who know me at the world know the truth and have stuck by me. For that I am thankful. But this has seriously gotten out of hand.
And now at my store there is this girl who hates me for no reason. It has gone on for months on end and I am sick of it. Finally I exploded in which she told me to go fuck myself. I really don't care to be honest. I did want to get it solved but I realized she is not worth my time. Or so I say so.
In truth RHU, I am really depressed and upset over all of this. This has kept me up at night more times than I can count. I haven't been to work in almost a week because I have been sick from the stress of being there. I cry almost constantly. I am trying to audtion for acting roles around the area but to no avail. I feel as if I am losing my mind here.
And on to crappy management. They recently switched all the managers for the stores now we have a manager who doesn't put the schedule out on time. I told the head one about it and he lied saying that he always did. I showed upper management that he did not. Ever since then, our manager treats me like scum. There is a pool to be able to do food prep. I have been on the list for months and have proven that I am reliable and am a fast learner. No, of course Redheadactress doesn't get chosen but a girl who started 4 months after me does and a girl who is going to cut herself because she flat out refuses to wear a cutting glove.
And guess what? After 2 months, it still hasn't been done correctly by either one of them. They both have been written up numerous times because of it and yet nothing has been done to correct the issue. Them and their lackies hardly do anything now and it wasn't like they ever did. They always took the easiest job even if they were not assigned to it and screwed everyone else over from ever learning.
And the trainers. Trainers need to start doing their job. 10 times out of 10 I have to instruct the newbies on what to do without the pay raise because the trainer didn't give a damn and literally said "here you go." Hopefully with the change of trainers this will not happen anymore. Sigh. I don't want to be upset about it anymore. I wish I could say none of this bothers me, but I am sensitive. I take everything personally.
I wish I had balls like Burger Bitch because then I would be fearless and could tell the world to kiss my ass. Seriously, I have run out of ideas. I guess being intelligent and dependable isn't worth crap anymore.
