Anyway, stupid new lady eventually demoted me to lifeguard (without telling me...are we beginning to see a trend). I assume this is because I only worked twice a month and never went to inservice on account of my hatred for her...fair enough. Mostly because she's as useless as dinosaur spit, Adam and I didn't work in December or January. We went in and asked her what it takes to get on the schedule these days...she said we had to work at least once a week (which we usually did). We said "ok" and her response was in the form of a really stupid look on her face (which I mentally slapped off!). Then she said we might have to fill out some paper work. Stupid woman basically fired us (without telling us)! I couldn't believe it. This ridiculous company has screwed me over so many times and this would be the last! False.
Adam wanted to keep working there because they give employees a free membership. He thinks it's worth it to work for/with complete scum (not just the dumb one...everyone there sucks). This has been the case after every event resulting in my outrage...we continue working there for the membership (which my very unfit body clearly rarely uses). I've been wanting to quit FOR-E-VER but, because Adam won't, I may as well stay so I can at least be with him on Friday nights (when we work). We also had a few friends that worked there which isn't the case anymore. I have worked there longer than any other member of the aquatics staff (management included) and I have only been there a year and a half. The turnover is incredible because it's such a crappy company to work for.
Ah...back to how I was screwed over, yet again... So, Adam and I got put back on the schedule to work every Friday night thus putting in our once weekly for the freakin membership. I was late (due to the paint fest) and Adam clocked me in while I changed into my guard clothes. When I got out on the pool deck and rotated, Adam informed me that we weren't being paid...the clocking in didn't work. "WHAT!!!??? What are we still doing here!?" But nice old Adam couldn't bring himself to let us leave because we wouldn't be hurting sucky manager, we'd be screwing over (I've said this a lot this post) the other guards...my response, "true, but at least they're being paid." UN-BELIEVABLE! She knew we weren't on payroll and still scheduled us! I already totally hate this job and now I'm doing it for free? No way. I hope now Adam will finally let us quit...I'm going to regardless.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Shame on me! I guess it's my own fault for sticking around and letting them treat me like shish (very uncharacteristic of me). Stupid Lifetime Fitness. Rant over.
