My job uses the point system for attendance. Basically, if you miss any time without using sick or vacation time, you get a point and if you go a month without getting a point, they take a point away. Seems simple enough, right? That’s what I thought too. Then I went to work today.
After I got back from lunch, the woman who works in the office (the one who I accidentally called myself Daddy in front of) asked me if I was late on Friday. I told her that I wasn’t.
“What time did you clock in,” she asked me.
“10:30,” I replied. (I work 10:30-7:00 every day)
“Then you were late.”
According to her, if you clock in at 10:30, it records in the system as 10:31, thereby making me late. I have to clock in no later than 10:29. Once again, Ummmmmm…..WHAT???
How can I be late if I clocked in when I was supposed to? That’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard.
When I first started working there, I was told to clock in as soon as I got there, even if it was before I actually started working, so that’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve never had a problem with this before now and I’ve been there almost a year now.
Normally, I’d just let it go, but I got a point because of this. I don’t plan on calling in anytime soon, but shit happens. I don’t want to get written up one day because I clocked in on time. That’s 33 grams of bullshit.
