I’m a fairly laid back guy. It usually takes a lot to get me angry. Most of the time, the things that piss me off are things that happen to me at work. This is another one of those times.
For those of you who don’t already know, my company repairs factory installed car stereos that are still under warranty from the car manufacturer. When I first get to work, my job is to receive all of the radios shipped to us, enter them into the computer, and then give the radios to our techs.
Yesterday, one of the radios we were sent elicited the following email. This is the actual email that was sent by my team lead to our boss. I’ve changed the names and removed something that could be used to identify the company I work for, but, other than that, this is his email.
Today we received a (car company) unit that is literally covered in feces. It is the most awful smell I can think of. Should I reject the unit back to the dealer? Or just receive it and send it directly to scrap?
It appears that there is no media inside but either way I think it should stay there if there is. Lol. I put the unit in a bag and taped every inch of it to seal in the disgusting-ness.
Right now I’m trying to decide what pisses me off more: That a car dealership would send us a radio covered in some kind of animal shit, or that we have to ask for permission before rejecting a radio covered in animal shit.
If I ran a car dealership, and a customer brought in a car filled with animal shit, I’d tell them to where to stick that car. I certainly wouldn’t make my mechanics touch it any way. And, if I was the mechanic, and my boss told me to get that radio covered in animal shit out of the car, I’d tell him to get it his damn self because I’m not touching it.
I’m wondering what kind of asshole lets his car get covered in animal shit in the first place. From the looks of it, it was either rat or ferret shit (Granted, I’m no expert in animal shit. So, I’m going with what my team lead said it looked like). The car was less than two years old, so I have a hard time seeing how it was covered in that much shit.
Regardless, it reinforces my belief that people suck…..
