Why do I do this again?
Ok... not to moan and groan too much, but am I right in assuming that I'm a pretty easy guy to work for when it comes to my company policies? How many companies tell their staff to wait until 10:00 am to get to work in the morning, start every day off with a cup of coffee an a morning meeting, and then get started on their day? We usually have none of the horrible drudgery that comes with most companies. We are always doing something different. I adjust operating hours to accomodate the lazy lifestyle of most of the staff. What else can I do to make it easy for people to get to work on time? It is currently 12:38 in the afternoon. Would you friggin believe that NO ONE has showed up to work today except Hal? Hal was here 10 minutes early, not that I care about that, because early just means that I have to get up earlier. But the point it, everyone here is 2 and a half hours late at this point and so far I see no sign that they're going to show up at all. Pardon the phrase, but "What The Fuck!!!!!" Do I have to be the asshole who says, "Get to work on time or you're fired!" That's what most every other company in the world does, but I've always wanted to avoid that because I have a unique group of guys with a unique skill set that's hard to find elsewhere. Additionally, they're a great collective bunch of people away from work as well. But this shit has got to stop. I have now lost approximately 4 hours of MY workday, plus almost 3 of theirs each, meaning I've lost 10 man hours of labor at the time of this posting. Even at our cheapest rate, that means Computer Techs has lost $450.00 today so far. I think I'm going to go smoke before I kill someone, because you can guarantee that I'm going to get some lame bullshit excuse as to what everyone was doing when they were supposed to be here working. Sorry... I just needed to vent a little and see if maybe it's just me that's being an ass or if I'm really justified in being totally pissed off!
