Keep a diary, then at the end of the year get together with the other staff and hit him with a class action.

That's how they do it in the movies anyway right?...

So, your friend got paid for the hours you covered?

jimhelm 09-15-2011 06:57 PM

Huh? What in the world are you talking about? Are you referring to my stance on letting the Bush tax cuts expire and comparing that to getting ripped off at a job that I can't quit until I find other work? How can you compare paying a few more dollars out of one's paycheck in taxes to having no paycheck at all? :headshake

I don't think anyone got paid for them, but maybe she did. It was her shift and she might have spaced and put down that she worked the entire thing. Hopefully Carmen can straighten it out now that she's back.

@ Aliantha: Colorado law has a statute of limitations of two years for reporting tricks like the owner is playing. I'm keeping my paperwork and check stubs. My thought is once I find something else, I'll contact the State Department of labor about the owner's little tricks. The man is such a lowlife to take advantage of the recession and the high unemployment here to cheat his employees who get paid nothing to begin with.

You're computer literate. Apply anyway and wing it. If the complete ditzes they usually hire can manage it......

Are you calling SamIam an incomplete ditz?

An IUD may stop the periods, but it sure as fuck doesn't stop the PMS. I am a twitchy ball of agitation and I hate everyone today.

Licensing agreements for audiobooks.

Fucking annoyed I am.

Some months ago I bought the first book in a new series of books by Guillermo Del Toro (of Pan's Labyrinth fame) called The Strain. It was very good. Both myself and Mum really enjoyed it. At that point only the first was available on audio.

I checked audible for new releases as is my habit, and there was the third instalment of The Strain Trilogy. Ok, interesting, must have missed the second right?

Wrong. The second book (The Fall) is available on the US site, but not the Uk site.

I phoned customer service and was told about how sometimes the publisher will change midway through a series, or maybe it's an error, but he;d look into it.

I just got an amail from them thanking me for my enquiry and explaining that audiobooks are licensed by region. Apparently, I should log into the site rather than browse as a guest because that way i won't be troubled by listings for books that are not licensed to my region.

That was not the point of my complaint. Having books 1 and 3, but not book 2 was my complaint.

So, I just went checking anyway, and it turns out that all three books are the same publisher. So wtf?

jimhelm 10-18-2011 08:32 PM

not 1, not 2, but THREE sets of customers just walked in at 8:30.

Who do you think you are, expecting to have some kind of life?

You exist to work, drone.

Trilby 10-19-2011 07:13 AM

My son.

He's outta here.

infinite monkey 10-19-2011 09:01 AM

Leaving on his own volition or have you just had enough, Bri?

Ugh. Hope it gets better.

ZenGum 10-19-2011 09:04 AM

If it was of his own volition, it wouldn't be in this thread.

infinite monkey 10-19-2011 09:05 AM

Yeah, that's true.
