I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.

Nope, I can't even...

My manager told me he'd have me down to twelve hours next weekend, instead of the schedule he has me on now.  He did not.   So I told him I'd have to talk to people, but I might hand in my two weeks notice tomorrow, because he knows I want to focus on school. 

 

He told me threatening to quit wouldn't help anything.   But when I didn't, he didn't change a damn thing.   

 

Also, perhaps you shouldn't jokingly tell an employee you can't decide if you want to punch, slap, or shake them because of their sock choices - two different Deadpool ones because I couldn't find the same ones that day - before you throw around the word threat. Because, man, if I had wanted to threaten him, I'd have brought that up. 

 

End of explanation of how employees are expected to take shit, but not dish it out, for a minimum wage job that takes advantage of them.   (Don't get me started on firing employees after twenty years of loyal service, only to fire the CEO who made that decision two weeks later and not offering to rehire those employees...  Just yikes, Barnes and Noble.)

 

Also, I know we aren't supposed to talk about this because professionalism, but that's basically what I've come to consider a threat by employers to hide their behavior.  We need more whistleblowers, because the casual , joke-y threats?   That happened this year, and it won't change if we don't say things.   Like how is that okay, but me saying I need this or I'll have to quit a threat?   

 

I'm apparently not done, because I'm still mad.   I'll feel better after my shift tomorrow, I think, when I can walk out of this bullshit for another week.
