This particular person is a fulfiller, started the same day I did. Which is why despite the fact that she’s not full-time, I think she deserves an honorable mention.
She’s introduced to me by the supervisor as an equal, I take a breath of consolation because, at last someone I can identify with. I mean she’s a bit unkempt with a scarf on her head and attitude on her sleeve, but maybe she’s not so mean.
During the task we are assigned walkie talkie’s, which I am not a fan of, being a woman of a certain age it feels like an ankle bracelet, and it wasn’t offered so I didn’t ask nor assume one. I mean, I did not even play with them when I was young. They are practical in their use, they come in handy if the supervisor or manager wants to send you home early or to assert any other kind of authority. So, I’m not opposed to them, I just simply was not offered one.
After the introduction the supervisor goes off to do something for no more than about 1 minute. My counterpart leans in and inquires in my ear; in a whisper regarding the location of MY walkie talkie since she has been attached to one right away. I tell her that I wasn’t given one and neither do I want one in an equivalent tone, she responds that she hates me her exact words were “I don’t know you and I already hate you.” I don’t like the word hate because it’s so strong, but I chuckle just a little because I mean she doesn’t know me, so she can’t be serious right!?! These kids. That’s my mindset.
The supervisor returns- No longer then 5 seconds later and I am not exaggerating; my counterpart looks away from me and looks DEAD in the supervisor’s face and states “don’t you think she needs a walkie talkie?” My mouth must have dropped 10 inches to the floor I was so shocked, but I gave a corporate chuckle and blew it off.
To this day I still don’t have a walkie talkie perhaps because my supervisor doesn’t have to look for me, she knows that I am doing my job. Besides this I don’t trust the counterpart because she’s done and said some other questionable things.
Anyway that’s it for today. I have another jewelry snob part coming up. You won’t believe the snarkiness of it all.
