Toxic Hell

Published:

Well, another day, another problem (in my case, MANY problems)....Rant

 

First, at Ford, since I have very low seniority, I get loaned out (brought off my line to go to another line)  to a line that decides to break down 20-30 times per hour. Oh, how I love my job..... I am too used to getting out of that place early, and I absolutely HATE it when I have to be there for the full length of my shift (9 hours in a factory will get to you after a while). A full 9 hours later, I get about 15 minutes of peace & quiet (the drive to Taco Bell).

Then, at Taco Bell, chaos was happening as soon as I walk in the door (mind you, this is at 12:30 am and we close at 2). People were getting wrong orders, people misbehaving, acting like idiots, just basically the types of people I do not like to be around. And when we closed, nobody decided to do any weork, so all of them left and left the entire close up to me. How lovely it is cleaning up after 16 hours of dried meat, melted cheese, and smelly tomatoes.

I guess this is how it is meant to be until our plant finally returns to Ford, and then I can give up "Toxic Hell."

Time to watch "Overboard" and then go to bed... See ya soon!

Kris,

Hopefully you're at least getting some good benefits from Ford. Are you in the UAW?

What do you mean when you say that the plant will "return to Ford?" Are there other brands of cars being built there?
