Is This Costa Mesa?
I'm so bored. I wish it was already time to go see my husband. I just have to make it through one more week. Thank God for Google Duo. Husband and I have been video chatting every night after he gets back to the hotel from work. I was off yesterday and today, so I got my nails done and watched Fairy Tail to pass the time. Today I'm finally folding my laundry and then I'm going to go grocery shopping. Not entirely sure what I'm getting but I definitely want to make Mongolian beef in my insta pot, and this chili I made before that was delicious. I'm thinking of taking my insta pot with me to visit husband so I can make dinners while I'm out at the pool or in the gym lol. We shall see.
Work is definitely keeping me busy and my mind off husband not being here. We have an HR walk next month and we're trying to make sure we have all our HR plays up to date and accurate. Which, unfortunately has caused drama. I have an associate that use to be in my position
(due to a management rework from Corporate and her being on a Final for attendance she wasn't eligible to keep the position ) but has stayed on as a cashier that I'm starting to wish hadn't. She always has issues with the other cashiers and some of our customers. She has told me that there are contractors that come in and ask personal questions in Spanish to her even thought she's never been that personal with them, or saying that one cashier or another is talking shit about her to customers or they aren't calling people to their registers leaving her to do it all. Going back to the HR walk, one of the HR plays is to have our associates wear badges indicating if they speak another language. Since I know J does not feel comfortable with some of our Spanish speaking customers, I wanted to give her a heads up and work with her on finding a solution to keep her comfortable and keep us from getting dinged for the badges. Apparently I should have just not said anything to her because before I could finish speaking she got extremely defensive and would not let me say anything. Kept cutting me off and saying "Maybe I should just call HR because management doesn't want to do anything about it." I got frustrated and said "Do what you got to do. I'm trying to come up with a game plan with you but I guess I shouldn't have told you at all, then, huh?"
J went on to go to our in house HR and claim my 2nd in command was laughing during this and retaliated by sending her to a register to cover a lunch. I had to explain to HR that her account was inaccurate and I would not be reprimanding my 2nd in command for telling J that the world doesn't revolve around her. I did talk to my team
(I have 6 back ups ) that they need to be careful who they joke with going forward and to also be sure that they are sending associates to certain spots for the needs of the store not because they pissed us off. It was fucking redundant because my team already knows this and executes that play every day. Not to mention management has investigated J's claims but her witnesses claim they didn't hear or witness what J is claiming happened and our video cameras doesn't have audio. So go ahead and call corporate HR because we have the paper trail to prove we've investigated to the best of our ability and no one is backing your claims 🤷🏻♀️.
I just don't understand why someone would continue to stay somewhere were they are so unhappy, on top of having an almost hour and half commute when there are like two locations closer to where they live. It don't make sense to me. But I guess that's none of my business. I can't wait for the week+ I'm about to have off. Thank the gods above it's just 5 shifts away.
