Funny you should mention this because I'm in the thick of it now. Long story short, this is the weekend job that put me through nursing school, non healthcare related (start as an RN next week...)....
anyway, I came in to work yesterday at 7 am to relieve the overnight guy, and while I was cleaning the desk I found a bag with two empty Budweiser cans. :beercuphe When I put my lunch in the refrigerator I saw a paper bag at the bottom (of course I opened it) and there was a can of Miller beer. A couple hours later, another employee asked me if I'd noticed anything strange about the guy I relieved, and I didn't say anything but cued her to tell me what she knew. She said that when she came in she smelled alcohol at the desk and he had the music on so loud she said it sounded like a "disco".
This is a corporate office building open to employees 24/7, and this is the second incident in a month (that I know of). This guy was fired before, but given a second chance because his friend is the supervisor. Well I called the supervisor yesterday, and do you know what he said? "Well, he's been going through a lot right now, he has a lot of problems." I was floored. He said that he's been messing up and he doesn't know if he's going to keep him, blah blah. I decided not to report it to the property manager because the supervisor said he would take care of it. Well, my shift starts at 7am and ends at 11pm, so at 11pm, I'm expecting the supervisor or a replacement. Guess who walks in to work? Yup!
Well I told him that I found his beer and that an employee caught him drinking, and he asked me if I told anyone. I said of course I did, I had to. Then he went into this 'woe is me' and I cut him off, I said you really shouldn't be drinking at work. He asked who I reported it to and I said the supervisor, and he said ok. Well this morning at 7am I relieve him and before he leaves he says, "hope to see you next week" and just as he walks out the door he says 'you got rid of those cans right?" I said yes and he said good. By the way, the beer in the refrigerator.... GONE. I immediately got on the phone and left a message for the property manager, and will be calling my supervisors boss tomorrow. Under the circumstances, I think they should both be fired. :trout:
Sorry so long.
