No Job Security

| Working | January 6, 2015

(This takes place via text message:)

Me: “I’d like it in writing that I’m not responsible for the company car when my shift is over. A lot of people dislike the security, and this is the third car we had to replace at this location. As nobody relieves my shift, I just park it and leave. I want to be sure I’m covered if someone else comes by later and does something.”

(The boss calls:)

Boss: “If you’re too scared to work out there, I’ll reassign you.”

(And just like that, I went from months at a bank that I like, with no problems, awesome hours, and friendly employees who were glad to see me, to ten-hour shifts of staring at a construction site alone all night. That taught me to make reasonable requests!)
