Sow manager can't take the heat
I finally got some hours back at the Kroger I work at (they put me in grocery now since produce has no hours,) and come to find out they just brought in this old sow manager. She has apparently been bounced around from store to store, and they wanted to see how she could handle this store, which is busier and the newest store in the area.
I bet you can't guess what happens...
She has only been there for two weeks, yet has been fucking up majorly. She can't get her shit together, and nothing gets done on time. Lucky me, I got to work with her Wednesday night.
I clock in and head to the back, and get together with the other guys I'm working with to see what was going on and if we needed to do something special. Nothing special had to be done, so I went to work the carts with the weekly special items on them. About an hour passes, and as I come in the back with a cart all hell breaks loose.
The sow calls for all departments to do their garbage run. I round up my shit and go to the back door with the rest of the guys in grocery to find at least 15, maybe 20 carts full of garbage just sitting there. For some reason, they expect the grocery stockers to empty all of the trash in the compactor, but it does give me time to smoke. The sow opens the back door, and we get all the carts out.
The fucking compactor isn't working.
She tells us to just leave the carts out there since there was no reason to bring them back in. Not 15 minutes later, she calls for a garbage run again, and we go back there to find out that she was told to bring all the carts back in. So we haul all the carts back in, and try to shove the carts wherever we can so we can still get to the pallets in the back.
Me and the rest of the grocery dept are then told that we are having inspectors come in the next morning, and we all have to stay extra to clean the back room. No questions asked, just get it done. We grumble about it, and just start doing the shit as fast as we can. The other two guys go start unloading these blue bins that have merchandise for all the departments, and I go back to stocking the floor.
Now, a half an hour before the stock shift ends (usually 10pm) we have to take out carts for each aisle for the night crew to stock. Some of these carts have milk crates full of random shit in them. I pull all 15 carts out on to the floor, and the sow comes screaming that the night crew isn't doing any milk crates and to take all of those with the crates back (which is half of them by the way.) I just go run and do it so I can get the hell out of there as fast as I can.
After that is finished, it is about 10pm, and we were still not done with everything. The guys in the back finally finished all the blue bins, and were starting to unload pallets from a truck and pull them out to the floor. I go and stack all of the blue bins together in the corner, and start to clean the floor. The sow runs back there and tells me we have to move this giant black box out of the corner and into a truck, since she wants as much stuff off of the floor as possible.
This massive box contained all the recycled pop bottles/cans/glass. It was wedged in between the wall and all the garbage carts, and there was no way to even move anything to be able to get the pallet jack in there. In her infinite wisdom she asks me if I can move it by hand. I'm not fucking kidding. I told her that was impossible, and she called the other two guys over and told us to move it. Even they told her we just couldn't do that, but she said we had to try. Of course it went nowhere.
After that she goes and runs out of the back and starts barking at other departments, and we finally finish getting the pallets out and cleaning about 11pm. She comes back and tells us that she was happy that we stayed, and we didn't have to do that.
I almost put my fist through a wall. She told us it was mandatory, and then decided it was voluntary AFTER we finish all the work. Thanks bitch.
The best part of the whole night was when she threatened us that we would get in trouble if she got in trouble, even though she waited until the last minute to get all of this shit done. This should have been an all day process.
The backroom was still a fucking mess when we left. I have no idea how the inspection went, but I am guessing she got her asshole reamed.
Fucking sow. I doubt she is going to last long.
