So today I woke up at 5am to go to work. I show up to my coworkers house to pick him up and he doesn't come out, so I text him and he says "you're outside? holy shit I'll be down in a minute". He then goes on a spiel about how he was told he had to take the bus to work and not have me drive him today because I wasn't supposed to go in today. Usually when that is the case, I get a text from my foreman the night before... So I text my foreman, "What's going on?" He says no work for me today, drop the coworker off and head home. I ask why, he says I dunno. I ask why he didn't tell me. He uses Convenient Technological Failure Excuse. I go home. So on the drive I decide I had better call the owner of the company. No answer. Three times. So I text him, a little more than annoyed, asking why no work for me today? He texts back "I'll call you in a bit". I wait three hours, very anxiously, before he calls. He bitches at me for ten minutes about how I'm not performing up to standards, and how my foreman says I barely do any work and I just stand around all day, and I have a negative attitude. I do what I always do when confronted: back down and kiss ass. Sure enough, he says I'm on my last chance and I should do better and I assure him that I will. Within an hour of that phone call, I've found another job, with better pay, steadier hours, starting thursday, and the new boss is more lenient about my school schedule. I call my old boss and tell him to suck an egg, fatty and I'll pick up my paycheck next week.. He was not impressed.
Ugh, too long and ranty. Should have edited.
