More Corporate Stonewallking, OR: My Work Situation Redux
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 09:47 PM by NightTrain
Today, the soon-to-be ex-owner of my workplace brought a corporate suit from Brooks Drug to our store (which is closing down soon) to meet the pharmacists, who will be "floating" at the various Brooks stores in greater Hartford. I wasn't there myself, being out on the road making deliveries at the time, but my co-workers filled me in on their experience with this guy. Basically, his stock answer to every question they asked was, "I don't know."

Anyway, it seems the letter we got with our last paycheck (from Neil, the soon-to-be ex-owner) was erroneous when it stated that we whose store was about to be closed would be offered jobs with Brooks. When my co-workers, Dawn and Bernie, asked the suit about that, he didn't know what they were talking about--just like the last Brooks exec with whom Dawn and Bernie had dealt. He turned to Neil, who explained about the letter he had written under the assumption that the job guarantees were real. Turns out, they weren't. Oops! Silly old Neil.

So, when his gaffe is brought to light, Neil sincerely apologizes for the misunderstanding--not to Dawn and Bernie, but to the corporate suit!

I'm glad I wasn't there. :grr: :nuke:

1. Why did he apologize to the suit?
I don't see anything that would cause him to deserve an apology.

2. I don't know, but it demomstrated just how much Neil gives a damn about...
...we who busted our asses all these years so he and his family could develop a net worth in the double-digit millions. Douche bag.
