my boss is an asshole, but he's not my boss

So after I posted how slow and quiet it was at work ...

a yorkie came in with a puppy stuck in the birth canal at 6am. We close at 8, and I'm supposed to be off at 8:30.
At 7am, we go into surgery. Pull out two live puppies and one dead one.
At 9:15, I wake the dog up. It recovers normally and i put it in an incubator. Clean up surgery,do some post surgical vitals and bloodwork.
Doctor tells me thanks, go home, I know you've got to work tonight. Co-workers tell me go ahead, go home, you've go a long drive.
Asshole boss that hates me working there comes up as I'm clocking out. "Excuse me? What are you doing? This place is a fucking mess still and you're leaving?" (It wasn't a mess. There was maybe ten minutes more of cleaning to be done.) "If you're going to cover someone's shift, you need to handle all the responsibilities blah blah blah ..." So I ask if he wants me to clock back in and stay, and he says, "No. Go home. I don't need anything from you." and walks off.

I should have thanked him for reminding me why I didn't work there anymore, and why I'll never go back except to do a relief shift for spending money. I already stayed an hour and a half over my shift to assist in surgery, and there wasn't more I could do to assist my co-workers. The man is widely known in the veterinary circle as a little tyrant, and is the reason why they can't get good techs working there. I just hate being bitched at when i didn't do anything wrong.

And now, I've got to start getting ready for my shift at my real job ... the one where i get to leave on time ...

  • Love.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…

  • everything came together perfectly

    I'm in Nashville. In my beautiful house, with all my wonderful animals, and i'm in love with the man sleeping with his head on my lap right now.…
