I got stuck last night and had to ask Aidan for something. I’ve never seen someone jump out of a forklift so fast.
“No hurry, no hurry, when you have a chance,” I repeated.
Is he trying to kill me with kindness?
It’s not going to work.
I put down a wood pallet in Ford. He was right behind me, I think waiting to replace it with a plastic pallet.
“Plastic boxes can have plastic or wood pallets,” I say. “I’ve been here a year and a half. I know what I’m talking about.”
He just stands there, grinning at me.
I know, I wasn’t going to complain about him, anymore. But his behavior is so bizarre it warrants discussion.
I don’t see him bending over backwards to help anyone else. What is this? Besides annoying?
He won’t use ShopView at all, just plain won’t. I think he’s afraid of it. So David or I will go out to do a pickup and it’s already been done. Frustrating.
Won’t learn the names of work cells, either. So when you’re trying to get information from him about one cell or another, he’s useless.
He is stubborn and arrogant. Please quit, please quit…
Okay, that’s enough. I think you get it. He is difficult.
Speaking of quitting, I guess the plant manager (“Who’s Leah Taylor?”) is leaving. That means Fred will be in charge, now. David told me Fred doesn’t like the WH and would rather not have one (the staff?) at all.
That bums me out because before he told me that, I liked Fred. He said I was a healthy eater. He also said the WH was doing a great job with the whole Honda situation.
Maybe I should give him a chance before I believe the bad stuff I hear.
Daniel is unhappy lately. I can see it. I don’t know what’s going on with him, but something has changed. Since about the time he started sharing a vehicle with his girlfriend and she began working at Dunkin. Since about the time I moved to second shift.
I don’t think it’s because of me. But I think he might be overwhelmed and frustrated with certain coworkers.
I don’t think they have enough people on first shift, now. There’s no one to do Honda, so it often doesn’t get done or done all the way. The group leader in Honda when he saw me yesterday said they needed me back on first shift.
Now that I’m on second shift I don’t know if I want to go back to first. Except for Aidan, second’s not bad.
I’ve got to eat. Talk later. ☺️
