Sometimes, you just have to trust your gut. Last night, after work, I was sitting at Flatface's desk trying to decide if I was going to print some tray tickets for tomorrow. A piece of paper in a cubby on the desk caught my eye because it had Marie's name on it. I pulled the stack of papers out to check out what it was. It turned out to be something she had written to verify another employee's account of an incident that had occurred several months ago. I wondered why it hadn't been filed away after this long, even though our boss is famous for his loose ends. So I started thumbing through the stack to see what else might be in it with someone else's name that I might recognize. Like I said, trust your gut. This cubby is where Flatface keeps some plain copy paper and some colored paper for his menus. So anything else there just seemed out of place. Well low and behold, right beneath Marie's incident report, were several more sheets of paper stapled together and upside down. I'm posting a copy of the top sheet here. Click on the image to enlarge it and notice a few important things. First, it is dated 7-10-08. That is twelve days ago. My supervisor has yet to show it to me even though, as you will remember from my previous post, we had a meeting on the fourteenth of July. Secondly, I was supposedly given a verbal for not punching out for lunch, which has never occurred. Also notice the absence of signatures of both the Executive Director and my Supervisor, not to mention myself and a witness. Perhaps the most telling of all, is this written disciplinary action was Cc'd to my personnel file without said signatures or my knowledge. The discrepancies between her version of the incident and mine tell the whole tale. Hence the little diddy by John Prine.
Since the tea party on the fourteenth, Flatface has been to Hawaii for five days and is currently sunning himself on the beach down in Costa Rica. It will be very interesting to see how he handles this matter when he gets back sometime this week. He obviously didn't want this little distraction to interfere with his travel plans. Thanks Y'all for your support and I'll keep you posted.
