( trying to get disability so i can get health insurance back. anyhoo last couple nights, get ent home early because in their words i was " acting like a zombie" to which i reply. how hte hell was i acting like a zombie. you ask me to do this or that, and i do so. WELL. i get things prepared w/o correction. she gets pissy. i said. look for $4 per hour your lucky anythign gets done. i prep the food, and sharpen the cutlery as needed. clean the equipment. w/o being asked. this constant harping is getting old. idk what owner is saying to you abotu me, but if im part of this gripign id like to be there. so i can defend my honor. when someone insults my honor i take that personally. contemplating turning in my shirts and such. and work @ pawn shop full time. i have put in 5 plus years at pizza place because until now have been treated well.

Well IDK the situation there but if were me I would tell them to Fuk Off. But I am silly like that and it has put me in some awkward situations down the track. All turned out ok in the end though.

Stress will kill you just as fast as a lack of food will.

Is part of your pay at the pizza place supposed to be made up of tips, then? That's the only legal way I'm aware of to pay less than the federal minimum wage, at least in a non-agricultural business.

I think your problem is that you actively try to be a productive member of society. You need to sit back and let the system take care of you...like my wife's no good extended family (aunt/uncle/cousins). Every single one of them is on disability, and only one of them really has health problems - sustained a head injury in a motorcycle accident. The other ones have just figured out how to work the system.  :2guns:

What I have found in my 36 years of life is that if a place does not like you, they will make your life a living hell until you quit.  That way they can say, "He quit on his own accord."  Happened to me, my wife, and many of my friends in various jobs.

They won't fire you, just will make your life suck until you leave.  Works out to their benefit since the HR numbers don't reflect an involuntary separation.

Explanation for those who dont understand why this is:
If they fire you, they have to pay into any unemployment benefits that you might collect.

This has been my experience, too. I used to work for a guy who hired a lot of high school kids for part time retail work. If they didn't work so well (called in sick a lot, complained while they were there, etc) he would stop scheduling them to work or they would get the crappy shifts. Seemed like a pretty passive-aggressive way to get these high school kids to look for a different job.
