I'm gonna write a book with double spacing. _____________________________________ I work with 4 other guys but we all work at different time so we see each other in passing. We're pretty much left to our own. Management doesn't even make us a schedule. We figure it out on our own. When I first started working there, there was no written schedule so I took it upon myself to write up the schedule so that at least I knew when I was working. Another guy liked the idea and suddenly, I was the schedule maker Recently, one of the other guys wanted me to change the schedule so he can make more overtime. I tell him I can't (and there are obvious reasons) but he gets the other guys riled up against me that I should change the schedule for him. I had to get management involved and now he's pissed and won't let it go. We're cordial but he likes to throw in zingers, like, "If only you would have changed the schedule." Skip to this weekend: I come in and he tells me equipment had just failed but he got it going again and tells me if it fails again do this and this. I'm like, "Great." Of course the equipment starts failing again and nothing he said to do worked so I worked out my own solution (a patch not a fix). The next day Management called in the "equipment specialists" to see why the equipment is failing. They tell pissed off schedule guy that nothing is wrong. Schedule guy is is ok with the specialists answers because everything is running fine. I emailed management that the "specialists" didn't do anything to remedy the problems I was having and my opinions of why equipment was failing and cc'd it to the other guys as well. When pissed off schedule guy came in I let him know of the email. He got pissed off again. I tried to explain to him in person why the equipment was failing and he didn't agree. I tried to be calm and jovial while the tensions were high. I'm like, the company is really wearing us out with so many hours. He go's, "If you changed the schedule I could be worn out too."
