Re: I wonder...
<quote>One of the partners thought that the IT department was also the janitorial staff. Kept asking us to clean the kitchen, take out the office trash, the final straw was when she asked me, The IT Manager, to vacuum her office one afternoon as it was a bit dusty. </quote>
Probably the shortest tenure at any employer I have ever had - all of 20 minutes.
Hired on to """improve""" their complete IT estate, by mom and dad; because it had slowly deteriorated into a clusterfuck, no thanks to the meddling of """sonny boy""".
FIRST day on the job, """sonny boy""" THINKS I was a member of their janitorial staff, because he demands that I:
1) mop the bathroom floors,
2) sweep out the warehouse, and
3) throw out the garbage.
I was NOT hired to perform janitorial duties, and once """sonny boy""" finished spouting off the mouth, I walked over to the receptionist, and asked: "WHO the fuck foes he think he is?"
"The owner's son." she replied.
"Well tell the owners that, upon reflection, I have decided NOT to take the job, and I wish them luck in finding janitorial staff that can double as IT techs. Also tell them NOT to even bother calling me, as I will block their number, and if they want to know why I changed my mind, just tell them what their `little precious one` had done."
I walked out the door, and never heard from them since. Later, I did hear that the shit hit the fan shortly after they found out what had transpired. My understanding was that """sonny boy""" was swiftly promoted to a position at another employer. I wonder how hard the door hit him on his ass as he was ejected from mommy and daddy's company.
I do remember that word got around to avoid them like the plague, and it must have been more than 6 months later before someone was
desperate stupid sufficiently cash strapped enough to take the job.
