    With the amount of bacon consumed by some folks around here, can you blame them for striking back?

    But yeah, seriously, why these doors can't be opened from the inside is a legitimate question.

    My sales job sends me to a lot of grocery stores where I go to the back rooms to see how much product we have a store to see how much I sell at the store. The point I am trying to make is the bacon is in a meat cooler that isnt locked like a freezer. It usually only has those double doors

    actually I think most of them are now...all the cooler and freezer doors at Whole Foods can be opened from the inside

    I've seen it happen too, those freaking doors lock from the outside, how stupid is that.
    now you know why many of s think that unions have long outlived their usefulness in the workplace

    I actually have no issue with unions in the private sector. Sometimes they are needed. My objections are to unions in the public sector.

    I agree this particular case depicts the worst in Unions, but I still believe they are essential. You don't know it until you actually need it.

    Here's a funny work experience: Canada's public sector pay problems. Been an ongoing issues for years now, you might have heard of it (Phoenix). The previous administration centralized the pay system then everything went baloney. People not paid at all for months, some for up to a year, had to take in loans to pay mortgages, people underpaid, people overpaid. As of now, I'm owed about 10k+. Our public sector union made sure that all the expenses being a direct consequences of this issue will be fully reimbursed, that can be reasonably justified of course. My union also re-negotiated our collective agreement, which boosted my annual salary by approximately 6k last year.

    And, thanks to my union, I have allowances to take time off (up to a week fully paid) to take care of an ill immediate-relative. Been spending 1 in every two days in the hospital this past month, and if on top of that I'd need to work overtime to make ends meet I'd have to cut on my bacon dietary requirements quota, which would be unbearable.
    Spoiler:
    I don’t want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more.

    Hey guys sorry I haven't been you to respond if you would like to know why I haven't been around please go to off-topic chatter, something really bad happened and I explained it there, it'll explain my disappearance and it's pretty serious...I've been catching up on your posts and they're pretty good! Thanks for sharing your work stories
