    I walked out of BB&B during a shift. I'm done...

    with being treated very badly. I've been documenting all the incidents that have gone one including being told why my clothes are too big because it looks like I'm hiding something (accusations of stealing perhaps???) and not being trusted (again, accusing me of stealing perhaps) at customer service, a job that I worked at for 4 years. All of a sudden they don't trust me?

    I went back to my register absolutely fuming, getting a knot in my stomach. I kept mulling it around in my mind for 2 more hours, is my mental health worth a stinking $38 every 2 weeks? Oh hell no!!! I finally resigned stating medical reasons. I'm going to my doctor on Wednesday and getting another note to send to Corporate along with a letter of everything that went on.

    I've had stellar reviews (okay so my attendance wasn't that great, but I had legitimate reasons). They stated that I knew the procedures well, had great customer service abilities and was always on time, and would come in when someone called out.

    I have a worker's comp claim when I slipped on a piece of toulle (bridal veil) hitting my tailbone on the concrete. It's never been the same.

    I was treated very badly and am not taking this laying down.

    Good for you!! Some jobs aren't worth it. I am glad to hear you are standing up for yourself.

    When you are ready, I hope you find something more suited to you. Maybe part-time cat-sitting?

    HUGS to you, and rest up and get lots of purr therapy!

    UGH!!! I know exactly how you feel. I was at my job 8 years. about 2 years before I quit, our department got a new "team leader" and she was having me written up every week. She had a temp going through all the files from the past year and getting me in trouble for mistakes THAT A TEMP was finding that were a year old. HELLO no one churns out PERFECT work... On one of my last write ups I had to tell my manager I had enough... in EIGHT YEARS I had NEVER been written up and all of a sudden this lady was having me written up all the time... It was so frustrating!!!! I was thrilled when I was able to leave that job!!! It wasn't worth it anymore!

    I hear ya on that one! I worked at a large pet store one summer and was clawed by an upset kitty (not her fault at ALL, I would have left her alone if it weren't for the manager insisting I clean her cage IMMEDIATELY even though the kitty hadn't made a mess). I didn't think much of it but of course the head boss had a complete fit and made me go to urgent care and file workmans comp paperwork. I started to get write ups and complaints right afterwards and then I was fired. I was planning on quitting anyhow so I really didn't bother to persue the issue (I didn't work there very long either)

    Good luck! *hugs* I hope something better comes along!

    I agree that the stress this is creating for you just isn't worth it. I hope you'll be able to find a more suitable job for you. Good luck.

    I'm hoping my pet sitting will pick up now that summer's coming. In the meantime, I just don't know if I or my health can take another job in retail.
