Dairy, how are you? Not much has went on around here lately. Just working and hanging out at home. It looks like I’m gonna be stuck with the work leader job for quite a while. They are starting to train me to do more and more crap. They have finally started covering my machine for at least part of the night some nights, that makes it a little easier.
I’m starting to feel more comfortable making decisions and telling the guys what to do. I say telling them but I actually ask. They want me to do the job but they say they can’t pay me for it. I’ve been told that I’m crazy for doing both jobs without any extra pay, but my job depends on the place being successful and my Bible tells me(that’s Mrs. Connell’s phrase), my Bible tells me I’m suppose to do everything as if I’m doing it for Christ. I’m not saying I’m at 100% on that but I’m trying. It’s amazing how once you go from being a coworker with most guys to overseeing them how you change what you think about some of them. It’s not that anyone’s changed it’s just that now their work ethic or lack there of in some cases effects me directly so I notice it more.
DAiry, I’ve also had some of them come to me with petty grievances about each other. I will not get involved in those situations, I refuse to be a babysitter. I’m not getting the pay so I refuse to get stressed out over childish crap.
One upside to not getting the pay is that I’m not responsible if something doesn’t get done. So I put the metal on the table let them know that’s what needs to be worked on and if they don’t do it, who the heck cares.
ONe last thought on work and I’ll shut up. I will be so glad when my workleader comes back and all I have to do is run my machine and not think about anything else. All that thinking is a pain in the butt.
