the latest...

HERE I GO, KEEPING YOU ALL UP- TO- DATE ON WHAT'S GOING ON.

WELL, JIMMY IS NOT HOME TODAY, WEDNESDAY, AS HE USUALLY IS, BECAUSE HIS "BOSS' AT THE FOOD-STORE CHANGED HIS DAY OFF TO FRIDAY FOR THIS WEEK.  HE CHANGED THE DAY OFF, EARLIER THIS WEEK...HIS REASONING IS THAT JIMMY IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN CLOSE THE STORE PROPERLY AT NITE...HE HAS TROUBLE REPLACING JIMMY ON HIS DAY OFF..........................WELL, THE STORY IS , THAT JIMMY IS NOT AT WORK TODAY  (UNLESS THINGS CHANGE AS I WRITE THIS).

WHAT HAPPENED IS THIS.......JIMMY WENT TO WORK YESTERDAY, AND WAS SENT HOME BY HIS "BOSS.'  WHEN HE GOT THERE, HE WAS TOLD TO LEAVE  ON THE GROUNDS OF 'INSUBORDINATION."  JIMMY LEFT THE STORE....JIMMY TOOK THE 2 1/2 HOUR BUS TRIP BACK TO KINTOCK, BUT NOT BEFORE CALLING HIS UNION REPRESENTATIVE.  FUNNY THING IS, THAT MANAGERS USUALLY DON'T JOIN UNIONS......USUALLY MANAGERS CAN TALK THINGS OUT, INTELLECTUALLY, ON AN ADULT LEVEL.  HOWEVER, THIS BOSS INSISTED THAT JIMMY JOIN THE UNION WHEN HE FIRST GOT HIS JOB........I THINK THAT, IN ITSELF, IS TELLING YOU SOMETHING....HE IS A BOSS WHO WANTS EVERYONE TO JOIN THE UNION, INCLUDING HIS OWN MANAGERS.....HE CAN'T HANDLE THINGS FROM AN UPPER MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE, IT SEEMS.

AND SO JIMMY WENT BACK TO KINTOCK....HE RODE THE BUS UNNECESSARILY FOR 5 HOURS YESTERDAY.......AND TODAY HE IS AT KINTOCK, GETTING THIS SITUATION STRAIGHTENED OUT.......

AND SO, JIMMY GOT TO GO BACK AND REST AT KINTOCK....HE EVEN GOT TO READ 200 PAGES OF THE LATEST HARRY POTTER BOOK I BOUGHT HIM..........HE WAS HAPPY ABOUT THAT!

THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EPISODE OF WHAT GOES ON IN THE WORKING WORLD............BEEN THERE, DONE THAT....SEEN IT ALL (JUST ABOUT)...........WORKED 28 YEARS IN HOSPITALS.............DEALT WITH PEOPLE, PERSONALITIES.......IT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS..........

FUNNY THING IS, THIS MAN SAYS HE CAN'T RUN THAT STORE WITHOUT JIMMY...........HE KEEPS SAYING JIMMY IS IRREPLACABLE............

I JUST DON'T GET IT.

OK....GOT TO GO , NOW...............FRAN

That sounds like a really crappy boss.

That's foul.  I'm going to continue to read your journal when I get home because we have this 'subject' in common.  :o)

Poor Jimmy, he's never at fault, just "the man" always coming down on him and giving him a hard time for no good reason.  Was going to prison because of an actual crime, or was he framed?
