Ok so with the hotter weather, clearly people need some help when they get stuck.
Working at a gas station we offer a cup (16oz) of water to the homeless or those waiting on a bus or friend to come get them.
However I NEED to say this:
The gas station is the WORST place to leave someone. Most will not allow a person to hang out inside for more than a few minutes. Many WILL set their foot down on the amount of water you're getting, feeling you are over using it for free. Gas station attendants are NOT mechanics and should not be asked for liability reasons to themselves, you and the company the slave works for. The pure BEST most can offer is water, a phone book, sometimes a phone, maybe a restroom. That's it, nothing more.
It's not a gas station's job to fix your car overheating, or your lack of gas. It's not the slaves job to cover what you're short on for cash to get your car moving. Asking the gas station worker to make wiggle room for that 50 cents can mean them getting written up or even fired (depending on company and other factors of course), so if they say no there's typically a reason and at least in my job that reason is we PERSONALLY would have to cover it.
To get mad at the worker because your timer ran out for the air or washing or vacuums is also very frowned on. Yes the heat sucks, but if you plan as best as you can and work with the help you can get it dealt with. It's easier to be in debt than stranded at a building you can't be in for long periods of time.
It's YOUR job to monitor what you do and how you need to do it. Make use of what little help they can offer and get it dealt with. Don't try to make the poor slave feel obliged to do anything other than what their work policy says is ok. Summer is high stress enough with people going everywhere to babysit your butt.
In other news I got my new job! I'm leaving gas hell for security hell. :D I really don't know if security is going to be rough, but it pays more than minimum wage! For now we're waiting on my training schedules to come in and once they do my flaky ass boss it going to be told what is what. I'm SOOOOO done with flaky schedules and them never even being put out in time to know how to plan a few days of my week. Like can I go get groceries? Visit friends? Take care of house hold errands? Trying to fit those in with "assuming" a work shift start is terrible.
My new boss seems to get everything very well. That I can tell them no if I'm busy when someone calls in sick. That I can go camping or on a weekend trip and they won't bug me unless it's critical. So hopefully that's good and stays that way, but we'll see lol and the news couldn't have come at a better time in my life.
I got a ticket for old tabs, cop used wrong address so wrote me for no insurance as well. Car is falling apart, my sister is having a baby quite soon. And then my BF left me, but yet we still live together for now... so this pay increase I hope starts me out for better things!
