triggered? no not really, but thanks for the concern. just tired of those special few at work. it's a large retail company and one little cashier and a mid level supervisor don't have a whole ton of power..except in their minds. neither one would last a hot minute in a gov't workplace or large corporate workplace. but they are fun to watch..as I've heard someplace else "stupid is as stupid does."

Not sure what you are saying but I can feel the emotion.
I wouldn't categorize workers as you do----or be so sure about who would survive where.
You might be surprised by who makes big changes at work.
No, you Would be surprised.

yeah no I wouldn't..been there worked gov't for almost 20 years both as upper mgt and a lower level employee. supervised for almost 14 yrs...am pretty confident what it takes to work and function in a large setting. also started and ran my own company for over 10 yrs. this little retail job is just spare cash...nothing more.

I've seen a supervisor cry thru an entire shift, employees scream at supervisors during closed door meeting and call them not worthy of being alive, others slack at work, some who lied and are barely literate, abusive ….and people who treat customers like they should never be treated. they think it is the major hub of the world and sorry our little store just isn't..staff has no real experience in this little corner of the world...

so yea...they are fun to watch as they try to figure out things and how to anger people...I've fought bigger battles..so it's no huge deal...

My coworker totally blew up today. I didn’t really get why. I think because she (I’ll call her coworker A) was trying to move things around and “annoying” coworker B was getting in the way. I have no idea and really didn’t see what the issue was. coworker A (who is in her late 50’s and fully cognitive by the way) had a full blown meltdown and had to be calmed by a couple coworkers. Not sure how much coworker B heard since she was out of the room for part of the meltdown. But coworker A was really making a scene.

Also at one point people were getting upset because the supervisor hadn’t brought any boxes to us yet and they were yelling for more boxes. I was just chilling and eating popcorn and watching people making fools of themselves. I knew the supervisor was doing her hardest and would give us boxes when she had the chance. She does a lot. But seriously, the way 50-60 year old adults act at my work is ridiculous.

Somehow every day when I come home from work I notice my clothes stink of cigarettes
There's no one even sitting next to me so I don't get where the smell comes from.
