The countdown is on

United States

The countdown until a co-workers goes back to his home state. It will be able the second week of May. I am not looking forward to it. Why? He unloads the trucks, he's the most willing to stay and help. He's nice. When he leaves, we will only be left with the six of us. One ONLY works on Sundays and there is no way of getting him to work any extra. So that really only leaves five of us. They promise that we will get someone, but even if we do, it never works out. This isn't anything new I am saying, I've said it a million times before. I just am not looking forward to it. I already have my grievances about where I work, but when all is said and done, I can't complain too much. I hate the place, but it's a place to work. I am not so good with new job situations, it's stressful and I don't do stress. The countdown is on, I'll be working more (I'll complain but be grateful) and I'll be stressed a lot more... I could use some liquid courage here.

Bummer I would be in the same position as you - not wanting him to leave too! It is hard to find a loyal worker like that! Hopefully they do hire someone to help out also.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Yes lol. There were days like that too. Knowing whose working and whose not a hard worker lol. Most men are quite the gentleman especially if it comes to heavier items.

@infatuatedbby haha well I am a stock clerk, so expected to be able to lift heavier items. The only time I ask for help is if the pallet is too heavy and I need someone to help me push it to the floor, or if something heavy is on top of the pallet and i'm too short to safely reach it.

It'd be sad to see such a nice co-worker leaving. Hopefully your company is going to hire a nice person soon too.

The problem is that we hire people but they never last. I was told this morning one failed our background check.

Just stay out and maybe soon you will like your job. Maybe soon you can adjust with your work and the work place. Good luck.

I sure hope so, but it doesn't seem like it will happen anytime soon.
