cheap_thoughts: Dear Lord, my employer says I'm to clock out if I want to use the bathroom outside of my scheduled breaks. The farked up thing is that my breaks change daily. In my call center they use Vernit and sometimes I have three hours between breaks. Not good when my diabetes medicine gives me unexpected tummy problems. It's been an issue as I've been taking 'excessive breaks' they say. I don't understand, they're mad I'm clocking out to shiat, aren't they happy to not be paying me?


I know somebody who was under doctor's order to drink a LOT of fluids.  Even with the medical reason, he got fired from his call center job because he was taking "excessive breaks."

You shouldn't have to justify needing to go pee with some kind of doctor's note or proof of surgery or some damn thing.  If you have to pee, you have to pee.  That's it.  There's no way to reliably predict or control it.

Surly U. Jest: One morning I see the facilities manager tamping down another bag of cold patch in the latest pothole and I asked why he didn't just get the whole thing repaved since it looked like shiat. He said it was because the owner didn't want it to look like we we're wasting the clients money.


First company I worked at, was in a dingy warehouse. After a few years the boss got embarrassed because the reps were making noises they didn't like taking clients there. So we moved to a new building that cost 50% more per square foot. The board was 'pissed' when they saw the place, as it was too 'too nice'. One of them said, '10 grand a month for nice carpet?' Me I noticed business picked up and our margins got better.

It's not "arbitrator", it's "arbiter".

/That is all.

And here I thought pee came OUT of the box.

What's the difference between a chickpea and a lentil? Nobody pays $200 to have a lentil on their face.

PirateKing: Having spent the last ten years working in and for call centers, Every one has time built in in addition to breaks. Yes, if you take an unscheduled stop it messes with service levels, and your personal stats, but they always have some variance built in. In my experience, to maintain 95% adherence to schedule over the course of an 8 hour day, it just means you have to take your breaks and lunches when they're scheduled. You have about 20 minutes of play in the schedule, and even then it's generally averaged over a month.


SpdrJay: Welcome, humans! I am ready for you! Fish, plankton, sea greens and protein from the sea. Fresh as harvest day.

Overwhelming, am I not? Are you, too, startled? Am I too removed from your kin?

High five.


Good for you. Last place I was at was a computer refurbisher whose metrics system was crap. Your performance was based upon things outside of your control, as in management would put you on pet projects and complain about lower production due to their project. Or line and system failures. It was never a good idea to meet your goals either. Doing so would cause your goals to be raised the next day.

The comment above of sales staff selling more than the floor could produce also rings true.

Basically the line was run like the donald Duck cartoon where donald was making munitions for the nazis
