OK here's something I hate about temping.
Can someone please tell me why there is always ONE person who is a total asshole and has to give you shit at each corporation? Seriously?!
Is it a power trip to do this to the temp? Seriously folks, does this person not know her own staff she works with each day and that I am not part of that staff and don't know all the ins and outs of each persons wishes like the person I am filling in for, and so it is some damn power trip to come out and yell at me in front of people for NOT PAGING THEM and instead leaving them voice mail? Or is this person really that daft that she doesn't realize I am not the regular person, and then if that is the case what does that say about her and paying attention to her support staff?
Yes this really happened to me today. I have been doing reception temp work for many months now. People love me and ask for me back. Now I am not going to claim that everyone always loves me or that every job ever has but most do and most ask for me again.
Today however, even though I showed up early, never asked for a legally required break of 15 minutes twice and followed the directions as I was given, never being told to page someone unless the caller asked me to do so, here I was being scolded, given the dirtiest of looks and then receive a call from my agency asking what happened that they cancelled the job which was to go on until tomorrow.
So here's what I'd REALLY like to know. Hey MS. BIG ASS BITCH making tons of money and prestige: is your life so damn empty that you need to beat on some lowly little hourly temp trying to scrape by while she builds her business just to make yourself feel better? Can you not be happy with the success you have and the position you have brought yourself too? Geeze!
Some people's lives are so empty!
Oh well. Hope this streak stops here. As little as the pay is I need this right now.
Sorry I just needed to vent.
