Outside hire, boss a liar, makes me want to start a fire

Posted By on Fri, Feb 7, 2020 at 3:35 PM


When a job promotion opened up at my workplace and I filled in as acting-whatever for that same position—for the same pay with more work—and my boss took their sweet time with the hiring process, the job was given to a replica of its previous incompetent occupant. The irony is I'll end up training this person with my same benefits-less hourly wage, while they stumble through the learning process with their cozy salary in tow. Happy new year to me. — Filled In For What?

Dear guys I work with

Posted By on Thu, Jan 9, 2020 at 6:47 PM


I'm tired of hearing your cat calls. Staring at my breasts while I'm talking = not cool. Whistle at me again and I'm going to turn violent. And if I had a dollar for every random guy who told me out of the blue that I'm his soulmate, I would be one wealthy woman. Why any of you think it's OK to send suggestive messages while drunk is beyond me, especially when you’re married. Men, let's get this straight: if a woman is nice, it doesn't mean she's hitting on you.

Maybe hire a copy editor too

Posted By on Wed, Dec 4, 2019 at 9:47 AM

Hiring managers of the HRM, please run your job titles and descriptions through a spellchecker before publishing positions to job boards. It isn't clear if the title "Escavator Operator" involves construction or maintaining automatic stairs. Your "Costumer Service" role involves no dressing up, and I am concerned if your restaurant needs a "Shit Manager" (I only saw this last one once, years ago, but the memory remains).

The attention to detail you put into your opportunity to make a first impression reflects the level of respect you have for employees, and this problem isn't limited to entry level positions. The government is hiring an advisor right now to run both "econonic" and also "ecomonic" analysis, a dark sign in itself for our econony.

Addiction awareness

Posted By on Fri, Nov 29, 2019 at 12:36 PM

Hey The Coast. Good job having two articles talking about addiction followed immediately by an article about a new drinking hole. Do you realize that alcohol is the biggest addiction issue in Nova Scotia?

Human rights violation on Halifax Transit

Posted By on Thu, Nov 14, 2019 at 2:33 PM

We've invested millions to upgrade the transit buses with modern tech. Each bus has a digital display that shows the next stop, and "stop requested" when required. I've been on at least six buses this year, that the stop request isn't displayed. I had my headphones on and didn't hear the bell. So as far as I knew, the driver wasn't going to stop for me. On a crowded bus, it's difficult to get to the driver to ask.

When I've told drivers that the stop request wasn't working, they would laugh at me and tell me their display let them know to stop, so basically fuck off. Like they don't care about customer satisfaction. Since it's happened repeatedly, the drivers haven't reported a problem with the bus, so the drivers must have shut off the display.

I don't think that it's a matter of driver's IQ. Except that these displays were installed for the hearing impaired. If someone is deaf, they won't hear the bell and have no way of knowing if the driver was going to stop for them. That is clearly a human rights violation, as Halifax Transit boasted that all buses are now accessible. It appears that Halifax Transit and the drivers are lying to us.

Auto body shop rip off

Posted By on Fri, Nov 1, 2019 at 9:45 AM

I'm pissed at a certain auto body place. They damaged a head liner during a recent repair at their shop and refused to fix it. The owner is a very unethical business owner, and I wouldn't recommend taking your wheelbarrow there to be fixed. The owner doesn't have any backbone to face the customer, but runs and hides so he doesn't have to deal with the issue. Little man syndrome.

Slower traffic keep to the right

Posted By on Mon, Jul 15, 2019 at 7:26 PM

Just because you are doing 120 and the right hand lane is doing 105 does not entitle you to stay in the left lane.
I flew up to your bumper at 160! You need to get the hell over. I am faster so therefore you are slower. —Pissed off and late

Bad cat owners

Posted By on Thu, Jul 4, 2019 at 3:59 PM

This is the second time I saw your cat left outside, sitting on your doorstep in the pouring rain waiting to get inside your house.
So, I decide to go across the street and ring your doorbell to tell you your cat wants to come inside. Then you tell me that it is ok that your cat stays out in the rain. Really? Maybe you should stay out in the rain, idiot, and see if you like it and let your cat come inside your house. You do not deserve to have a cat or any pet.

Just a thought

Posted By on Fri, Jun 28, 2019 at 10:57 AM

If you don't value your employees' mental health over the work, maybe rethink if you should be in charge. If your employee is anxious or depressed at work, maybe take a second to think: "Am I causing this? Can I help them?" Maybe, just a thought, try giving a shit about the people who are working their ass off for you and crying at their desk and not being paid what they're worth. —Exhausted by the bad bosses of Halifax

Can we talk ...

Posted By on Tue, Mar 12, 2019 at 12:48 PM

...about overpopulation? Why is this topic taboo? This is at the root of all environmental problems—and why migrants have nowhere left to go. The earth does not need 8 billion homo sapiens. Read The Limits to Growth (1968), a bestseller, and start a conversation with someone about overpopulation.

Price of membership

Posted By on Mon, Feb 4, 2019 at 5:17 PM

I was signed up against my better will at my university campus a little over a week ago. I'm a low income student (attending university through a program through the Department of Community Services) and thought that a membership to the grocery store, if shared with my four roommates, could be appropriate. I was reassured to I could cancel at anytime.

By the end of the same day that I had signed up for it, I regretted the decision as I live welfare check to welfare check. So, I went to the location to cancel. The store representative was manipulative—but understandably so, and I ended up leaving without making a purchase or canceling the membership. My roommates didn't want to chip in so I went back a couple days later to try cancelling again.

The representative I spoke with to cancel the membership was extremely unprofessional in processing my request. They open-mouth chewed gum (in a cocky manner) as they told me I was making a mistake and I would be back. He went as far to laugh at me for wanting to cancel my membership. He then tried to convince me of all the benefits that a membership includes, which I was aware of but needed to cancel my membership regardless due to financial reasons. When this tactic didn't work for him, he then proceeded to laugh at me again for canceling so early and reiterated that I would regret my decision and he would laugh about it when I came back in the future to get a membership.

This was a low-brow, unprofessional tactic for membership retention that made me feel very uncomfortable.

He then brought up my family out of province, telling me how I could send them things in the mail via their website, and when I informed him that I don't engage in post interactions with my family he commented that I should, not knowing anything about my family life or financial situation.

All of the previous tactics were unprofessional and I wanted to leave but we had to wait for a supervisor/manager to come finalize the cancelation.

It was at this point that I had the most uncomfortable exchange of my entire experience: In a final effort to get me to stay he specifically commented on my body size and told me if I started working out I could get my protein powder at the store. I felt disgusting that this employee felt they had the right to talk to me about my physical appearance and health in an effort to get me to stay a member. I really felt violated and simply wanted to leave.

After the lengthy process, my account was finally closed and I was reimbursed. Upon departure the employee once again told me how funny it is that I'm leaving after being a member of such a short time and I would be back. Based on the harassment, humiliation, judgement and commentary on my physical appearance at the hands of employees, I will never spend money to be a member at this tire fire of a place.

Driver's ed

Posted By on Tue, Dec 18, 2018 at 12:43 PM

Nova Scotia, I'm quite fond of you, but we need to talk about your driving habits.

Let's start with the tailgating. You should always keep at least a two-second following distance in the best circumstances, more in adverse circumstances. Some adverse circumstances are environmental (like bad weather or fog), some are mechanical (like balding tires, older brakes, larger and heavier vehicles that take longer to come to a stop), and some are driver related (you are tired, prone to road rage, impaired due to substances or age, inexperienced, over-confident, distracted by a phone, distracted by having a lot of other stuff going on in your life, whatever). Now, I know that you know how to tell distances in terms of time— know you can deal with "it's a 15 minute drive from here", for example. And I know you can count "one one hundred two one hundred" to estimate how long two seconds is. So put them together: Choose a point along the side of the road to count out the time between when the car ahead of you passes it and when you pass it, to check that you have a safe following distance. And stop tailgating.

Yeah, inevitable dude in an expensive black car (or the occasional dark blue station wagon) who NEEDS to go at least 20 over the speed limit getting on to the 102 outbound on Monday mornings, this applies to you too. You may be an exception ass, but the rules of the road and the rules of physics still apply to you.

Something's wrong about this

Posted By on Mon, Dec 3, 2018 at 12:27 PM

Ok, so: I bought a watch from China for $13 and it ships for free and arrives at my mailbox by a Canada Post worker.
Last night, I go to ship the same watch as a gift to a loved one in BC. It doesn't fit the mail slot so they charged me $20 to ship it.
So let me get this straight: Canadian taxpayers are supporting a system that would allow a foreign company to ship to BC cheaper than I could if I was a Canadian company?

Grocery cashiers' chairless tears

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2018 at 2:40 PM

It's a shame the grocery cashiers here aren't given chairs. I've travelled in Europe and Asia and most groceries have them. It would be easy to give them to the cashiers here. Even if they stood while dealing with customers, they could have a well deserved seat while waiting for the next customers. Help the suffering workers' health.
