ouch!! I hate it when that happens. oh, and once, i showed up 2 hours late because i thought i worked the 11am shift but i was supposed to be there at 9... or the day i came in and clocked in and then they asked me why i was there.... i came in on the wrong day.
but, well, that's the fun of Michael's huh?

LOL! i haven't shown up on the completely wrong day yet. yet. i'm sure it's only a matter of time.

i thought of you yesterday, when my manager at michaels totally contradicted herself, yelled at me for trying to do something, then almost immediately yelled at me for doing the other thing that she told me. though that makes no sense.

basically, i needed to downstock aisle one, models and fuzzy posters. to do this, i needed a ladder. one ladder was being used by someone voraciously downstocking memory, the other was sitting in beads, with a telxon and a notebook on top of it, the 'owner' was in the back room, helping the store manager move things aroudn to get stuff to set a new planogram. so i go back and ask becky if i could use her ladder. denise (store manager) says "is that aubrey? get something else to use. there's two right there." *points to the two regular painter like ladders, extremely rickety and narrow* i say that because my stuff is heavy (like model paint) and beads are not, that i don't feel comfortable using that ladder, but go to unlatch it from the wall anyway. i set that ladder against a shelf as i relatch the other ladder tight, and becky comes and takes my ladder and brings it over to denise to use to climb up and says 'i'll give it back.'

so i stand there and wait. denise then yells at me to go use becky's ladder, that i'm wasting time.


okay. so you yell at me because i want to use becky's ladder, then yell at me because i'm NOT using becky's stupid ladder?!? in the span of FIVE MINUTES?


i left receiving quite angry and feeling like i couldn't do ANYTHING right.

Yeah... that sucks. Since i'm the FES now, one of my jobs is to record store use, damaged items, known theft and floral use, but if there's nothing in the bins for those categories, i'm supposed to ring up any dept. and charge and return .01, but then the next day i get written up for an unexplained use of the dept. key, and why am i ringing up anything for .01?? So, yeah.
Oh, and yesterday, the manager told me to show this one associate how to pull the ad correctly so it's easier to sort on the back all the posts and holders, and then 5 minutes later was asking me why i wasn't doing go-backs.

now that i'm the departmental captain of my own little section, i'm beginning to realize that i know NOTHING. i've been pulled aside for management for changes that happened in doing planograms and structures and endcaps that had never been relayed to me because i had no need to know before.

and they look at me like i'm making up excuses when i just say repeatedly 'i'm sorry, i didn't know, no one ever told me that.'

yeah, they're getting pretty sick of that line from me too.... but it's true, i'm sorry, and i didn't know

now that i don't work at michaels anymore, i find it amazing that i don't really miss it.

maybe the fact that my roommate works there now and the fact that she got my old section and i hear all about it on a daily basis helps that fact ;)

tell your roommate i'm sorry....
