So today at work today sucked, and I was hoping if I vented to someone about it (thanks Travis) I'd feel better. I don't. So instead I'm going to spam the rest of you with it too.
Some days, I just really fucking hate my coworkers. We were bickering over how long the stupid plastic bags were - they were saying two feet, I was saying foot and half at the longest. We'll call these two Bandana and Asswipe. So I go to my other coworker (Let's call him Mario) and ask him if he has measuring stick (I couldn't remember ruler). He kinda stares at me and repeats it. I'm all "Yeah, a measuring stick. Foot-long or yardstick." He starts laughing because he's thinking about "Foot-long measuring stick". He's obviously thinking about using a ruler to measure dicks. I get all embarrassed and all "Nooooo! THat's not what I want it for, I just wanted to measure the bags D:"
So I leave the room with him and just go back to where my other two coworkers are standing all redfaced. Mario follows me out and is all "Dudes, she just asked for a footlong measuring stick". Then he walks back into the room. Asswipe looks at me and says "You're a dirty girl. You're a dirty, dirty girl. Dirty girl." OVER AND FUCKING OVER AGAIN. I try to explain at first that's not how I was trying to say it, but then give up and just decide to walk away. I stop before leaving to say "PLease don't call me that, I really dislike it." He keeps doing it until Bandana tells him "Dude, she's serious right now." Then I come back in a few minutes after Asswipe leaves to talk to Bandana and tell him thanks for backing me up.
Mario comes out to see I'm upset and asks what's up, Bandana tells him that Asswipe was calling me dirty girl. THEN FUCKING MARIO LEANS OVER AND WHISPERS "are you a dirty girl?"
HOW IS THAT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING APPROBRIATE.
Bandana tells him to fuck off, except nicer. I just to decide to focus on my work until I get to go home.
Then I walk back towards the break room for my final break before I can leave. I walk by this guy we'll call Produce. Every time I walk by Produce, he looks me up and down from toe to head like he's checking me out. He stares at me when I walk away or towards him. Just...He's kinda creepy.
Traviesaurus;. ¯\(°_o)/¯: all the time? or just today?
All the time. Today especially was bad though. Usually there are other people around for him to talk to instead. Today it was just him in the produce department.
I make it back to the break room, and Produce is up there with a guy we'll call Christmas. We're talking about cookie dough and someone else says that you can't eat raw cookie dough you have to cook it. And I'm all "WHAT? But it's best raw!!"
And they start fucking cracking up
And repeating it - "SHE LIKES IT RAAAAAAWW."
And I'm just so fucking done.
I fucking hate perverted jokes
Traviesaurus;. ¯\(°_o)/¯: do all of these people not know what the fuck harassment is?????
The first time I was harassed here, I went to the managers to ask what would happen. But I didn't want to actually report anything yet 'cause I had talked to the guy and had asked him to stop. They made me write it all down. Yesterday I went the store manager and told him that another coworker was saying racist things (Joking about how a black coworker was "trained" and if he told them to do something, they'd say "yes mastuh") - He was all "Cemy! We don't want this to be like last time! You just can't think someone is racist from one incident" AND SO I JUST FUCKING GIVE UP
I'm never going to report anything ever again to that fucking asshole because I'm the "Girl who called wolf". And "overreacts about everything". And I'll never get promoted because of what my store manager thinks I'm an overreacting cry baby and maybe I am but I just can't fucking even.
Traviesaurus;. ¯\(°_o)/¯: honestly, if it gets bad enough, you can call HR or your GM and explain why you can't go to your manager
I don't WANT to do that though. That'll make him hate me even more.
Traviesaurus;. ¯\(°_o)/¯: but some people are fucking twats and wtf shit balls
Traviesaurus;. ¯\(°_o)/¯: i agree, im just saying if it gets to an extreme that you can not handle in any way
If that happens I'll just quit. Probably write a letter to HR management about the issues explaining why I'm quitting. Because I wouldn't name my first issue, I don't think this store manager will believe me about anything else.
Today just fucking sucks.
My plan of action for tomorrow is to go to the people who made me feel so uncomfortable and tell them that what they said really upset me and I don't want them to talk to me like that again. But fuuuck it's so hard for me to confront people about things that upset me. I'm also going to talk to the HR manager at my mom's work - if she'll make time for me to talk - for advice and to try to see how my store manager is feeling about my situation. I'm sure he's frustrated because I didn't give information on the first guy (I had never reported anyone before and didn't know how to, what would happen, or what information I would need to effectively report him. I also extremely feared lashback because he was really well liked in our department and had been at that store for YEARS) and he's probably also annoyed because he doesn't have time to tiptoe around the feelings of a girl who's been sheltered all her life and has no idea how to deal with this sort of shit.
