Allow me to tell you how terribly run Sears is, shall I?
I called in sick today, and as most of you guys know, I NEVER call in. I started there at the beginning of September, and I still went to work when I had a Kidney infection and when I had a crazy death cold.
Well, I started barfing my life out around 8PM last night, and I didn't stop until 4AM. I was still going to go to work at this point, but then it started... In reverse... If you guys know what I mean (Think Taco Bell side effects.)
At that point, my boyfriend said "Ok. Unless you're planning on bringing extra pants to work, you're not going." He got me the phone and I called the sick line at 5AM (We're required to give 4 hours notice, my shift didn't start until 11:45.) However, we still have to call the store and let a manager know as well.
There's always at least 2 managers there by 9AM, so I tried to get some sleep and I set my alarm for 9 so I could call and let them know. I managed to fall asleep and woke up at 9, called them, nobody answered. I started puking again, so I hung out in the bathroom and tried giving them a call again at 9:30. No answer. For fuck's sake. Called again at 10:30, no answer.
Rob came to check on me at eleven and said "Try one more time, if they don't answer, fuck them. You called the sick line. If they're not going to answer, that's not your fucking problem."
Called again at 11, NO FUCKING ANSWER. Plus, they don't have an answering machine.
I'm fully expecting to get in shit tomorrow morning when I open and I couldn't care less.
I still have the appointment to speak with my old manager on Wednesday and my Assistant Manager is going to speak with her about me on Tuesday.
So wish me luck!
