Closers don't stop for Christmas.

SFR has learned that Franchini allowed insurance division employees to leave work five hours before their Christmas holiday without requiring the employees to submit leave requests and without getting prior approval from Montoya.

You know, it really isn't that difficult to run things by your boss before you do them.  We let out early before holidays but there's no way I'd tell my employees to go home until my director has given me the go ahead.  It's just polite.
 
2013-01-17 04:35:49 PM
That a messed up headline.
 
2013-01-17 04:37:15 PM
Hello.
My name is Johnny Montoya.
You approved early leave without permission.
Prepare to die.
 
2013-01-17 04:37:22 PM
My name is Johnny Montoya. You let your subordinates go home early. Prepare to be placed on administrative leave.
 
2013-01-17 04:38:01 PM
What about when your boss gets the OK from her boss to close the office early, but instead of telling everyone she just leaves at noon to go shopping while the rest of us work?

I had a boss like that once, it ended badly.

Polite??? I don't think your doing this to be polite.
 
2013-01-17 04:44:22 PM
My boss told us all to leave at 2:00 on Xmas eve. Then she found out that HER boss was going to be in the office after all. So, she just said, "well, sorry about that. You'll have to defer to him."

He let us go at 2:00 anyway.

That was nice.
 
2013-01-17 04:44:55 PM
But.. Mr. Scrooge!
CHRISTMAS EVE!

/humbug
 
2013-01-17 04:45:37 PM
I had a boss that would let every go home one hour before normal end of business every Friday before a holiday. The corporate office, and hence the boss's bosses, was one time zone to the east so we they would never know he let us all go home.
 
2013-01-17 04:45:46 PM
I could see this as being a serious issue if he let them leave AND they still got paid for a full day's work.
 
2013-01-17 04:46:03 PM
Well yeah, I would frown upon someone who worked for me giving away a bunch of my money, too.

I didn't bother giving out hot cocoa sampler boxes. It was far to much effort to poop in each one.

My workaholic  supervisor did that except he stayed and made us stay until 5pm after his boss told us we could leave at noon. Every other department left except for the 6 of us.
 
2013-01-17 04:51:04 PM
My boss is wonderful on Christmas eve he left 4 hours early and left his work for the rest of us to finish we managed to do it quick enough to leave an hour and a half early. He wonders why nobody in the office respects or trusts him. He got all pissy at me when I went on vacation because he forgot how to do the work he makes me do that he is supposed to do.
 
2013-01-17 04:51:17 PM
Sounds like this guy had problems with his superiors. Sure, letting employees go home on Christmas Eve is nice, but expect to have issues if you do it to seemingly stick it to your boss.
 
2013-01-17 04:52:59 PM
Been there done that, never got in trouble through. Figure if you don't like the way I run my department then maybe you shouldn't have given it to me. As long as the work gets done they why be so petty and care.
 
2013-01-17 04:53:13 PM
Everyone else miss the prior incidents the manager had? Like not informing the company of his Conflict of Interest? This was just the last straw.
 
2013-01-17 04:54:56 PM
I suppose you'll have to have the whole day then.

If it's convenient, sir.

It's NOT convenient. A full day's pay for no work done.

It's only once a year, sir.

Poor excuse for picking a man's pockey every December 25th. You'll be here all the earlier the next day.

Yes, sir. Except that I'll be hungover. And late.

/Big farking deal..its Christmas, giving them a 5 hour head start is just a nice thing to do, and lets them be with their families sooner. I can see your point, but the guy who suspended him looks like a farking Scrooge. Better just to pull the guy aside and say "you know..you should have run this by me first" instead of suspending him. Kind of a dick thing to do on a holliday.
 
2013-01-17 04:56:07 PM
A poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every twenty-fifth of December! But I suppose you must have the whole day. Be here all the earlier next morning.
 
2013-01-17 04:57:04 PM
Fark Em. They should not have left me in charge.
I did it before and I'll do it again. I still don't care if I get suspended or fired.
 
2013-01-17 04:58:13 PM
Boy, that guy's been a dick ever since he crashed & set Daytona on fire...
 
2013-01-17 05:00:08 PM
How much work do you think was getting done on Christmas eve. I don't know where you guys have worked but if we have to be in the office on Christmas eve the whole day is about a one hour of real work and then drinking and shenanigans till the boss gives in and lets us go home
 
2013-01-17 05:01:35 PM
I'd take a suspension so my employees could leave early on Christmas Eve.
 
2013-01-17 05:01:49 PM
They should make Christmas the last Friday in December, every year.

I'd agree...except for the time that I DID tell them to go home.

CSB Time:

A couple of years ago as Snowmageddon was just starting to shiat on us here in the DC area, I went to the VP of Finance to let her know that since the weather was beginning to get bad and they were predicting that it would get much worse, I was going to give my status notice that they could leave for the day. The VP of Finance, who drives a giant Suburban and who lives about 10 minutes from the office, just couldn't see the need for anyone to leave for "a little snow". I told her that I would give it a little more time and I did not tell them that they could leave. About an hour passed and it was clearly beginning to get bad outside. I went back to her office and was once again met with cold indifference. She almost acted insulted that I had brought it up again. I went back to my office, sent an e-mail to call a quick meeting, and told them all to go home safely and I'd see them tomorrow, weather permitting. I then went back to the VPs office and told her that I had dismissed everyone for the day and that I was leaving too. She was pissed, but the horses were out of the barn already (so to speak). It was the best call I ever made. When I got onto the roads I realized that it was MUCH worse than I could tell from the office window. It took me three hours to make a 45 minute drive. I almost got into one major and a few minor accidents, and by the time I got home there was no place to park because all of the folks with decent bosses had been dismissed earlier. I was so disgusted I planned to turn in my resignation the next day...then, after a beer and a cigar, I remembered that I have bills to pay and a kid whose feet grow by the minute. I did come in and give them a piece of my mind about the leave policy, which kinda made me feel better.

/Update: there is a large storm planned for the DC area, today. It was supppsed to hit around 2pm, so I thought I was going to have to go through the same bullshiat. Thankfully, as of 5:01 est, the snow has not started. I'll be home with my feet up by the time it starts.

Well when all you can think of is who killed you're father it's hard to make good judgments

Five hours early! If you want the day off take a vacation day.
 
2013-01-17 05:05:52 PM
Here's me: I'm letting my employees leave early on Christmas Eve.
Here's my employer: You're suspended.
I'm all: OK. That means I'm not answering my phone or email while I'm suspended.
My employer's all: Nevermind.
Here's me: That's what I thought.

Then again when you place a person into a position of management you expect them to lead certain pieces by themselves. I gave my staff the entire day off with the caveat that they pay attention to their phones in case an email popped up that required immediate assistance.

Though different organizations work differently when your team is successful you should have certain amounts of leeway.
 
2013-01-17 05:10:24 PM
OK, part of me says "Scrooge", but I would have give it the old "Hey boss, just to put you in the loop, I think I'll cut the crew out early today, being it's the 24th and all. Will that be a problem?"


Second thought: Isn't this a government entity? If so, don't they get twentyeleven or so holidays off a year? Would it kill them to use a little personal time if they want to leave early?
 
2013-01-17 05:13:08 PM
Amateurs all.

As state employees a real suspension is when the office has a whiskey-laden party on state property during state working hours!

Real government celebrations can't afford those Hookers-and-Blow parties that the TeaParty corporate sponsors throw.

CSB:

My wife works for a big regional insurance company, the new president told everyone on New Years Eve day to go home at noon to be with their families and celebrate. And yes, they would be paid.

/probably not the people working the phones though
/but that's where she started way back when

You all a bunch of farkin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like Johnny Montoya. You need people like him so you can point your farkin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." So... what that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Johnny Montoya, he don't have that problem. Johnny Montoya, he always tell the truth. Even when he lies. So say Merry Christmas to the bad guy. Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on. Make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through, better get outta his way.

I worked in customer service in a catalog sales outfit and without fail, folks would place orders a few days before Christmas and expect it to arrive in time with standard shipping, despite our warnings that it wouldn't. I got to work late on Christmas eve and listen to callers tell me how I had (personally) ruined their Christmas. I had a supervisor tell me that my main job was to act as buffer between upper management and the general public and he made it clear to me that management didn't want to be bothered with your petty bullsh*it.

/I visited their newly-built call center site 3-4 years later. It had been closed and bulldozed flat. I was pleased.
 
2013-01-17 05:23:08 PM

My boss has a very strict rule about the workday before a holiday: 1pm is Bacardi time. You can stay and work if you want, but she is going to be getting her rum on and you probably don't want to be around for that.

Ol' Jerry never let the staff out early for no good reason though.

Your username is oddly appropriate for the story you just told. Your supervisor needs a hip check into the boards for being such a moron.
