Totally rediculous. Worth quitting your job over? I think so.
    #4583186 - 08/26/05 09:18 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

So last week we had a massive storm roll through that caused a bridge to collapse taking with it all the phone lines for certain areaes. One of the areas affected was my gf's work. So her boss asked the employees to use their cell phones to make calls and they would foot the bill. They all use the phone regularly throughout the day to deal with clients. I thought this was a little absurd but you can put your number on private and the company was going to pay for it. Fine.

So yesterday they collect a list of all the cell numbers which, as she will find out today may be used to give out to clients. She told me this last night and I said it wwas completely fucking out of line and they have absolutely no right to do this. She has dirty old man clients that are always asking her out and hitting on her. The last thing she needs is them to have her private cell phone number. She thinks if she doesn't comply they may fire her. I told her to tell them there is no fucking way she is giving out her cell number to clients and if they don't like it they can do what they're going to do.

It's not like she wants to be doing this job for a living. The company is family run but it's a huge business and makes more than enough money to find a better solution to this problem. If I were in her situation I would tell my boss to fuck himself. Period. She shouldn't be responsible for the phone lines being down, and it seems outrageous that they could fire her for not complying. I'd like to go in there and tell her bosses exactly what I think about this and them. What would you do?

Fucking right, man! I'd try to make a big scene, too, when I confront my boss about the obvious privacy issues involved. Make sure the other employees see me standing up, hopefully they get a little backbone in the process :wink:

Tell her to ask her boss if he will pay to have her phone # switched to a new one after the phone system is back up.

I'd refrain from making a scene. You would just have a mess on the hands. She should point out her valid objection civily. The objection should represent itself well. Good luck

I'm not real sure but I figure what you've told us should suffice.

Yeah, I agree with cowgold, just tell them, no, I'm not doing this, if you want me to do this, buy me a cell phone with a number for now. It's not her fault the phone lines went down.

Well, if I get a phone call from her asking me to come pick her up, I'll be sure to put a complaint into the BBB. Here are some pics of the destruction just for fun...

I didn't think it was that big of a deal until I got to the last

picture and there was a gaping hole. That's crazy man.

Good luck with your situation.

That seems like you could sue over something like that. It's a werid form of sexual harrasment, IMO.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.
