Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

The autistic coworker had a bandage over his eye this morning - he splashed grease into his eye last night, and the idiot inexperienced manager didn't file an incident report - just asked if the injured party wanted to file an incident report.... :angry:

 

For anyone wondering - filing is mandatory for any on the job industry, not something where the manager is supposed to ask.

 

Incident report filed - belatedly, and inexperienced manager raked over the coals by the District Manager.

 

The kid didn't want an incident report filed because he has no insurance. :blink: The manager being an idiot inexperienced, agreed.

 

  The Auld Grump - sorry, idiot is the correct term, what the nine Hells was he thinking?. The kid's being pretty danged stupid as well - whether or not you have insurance, an eye injury needs looking at. Odds are he was in a temper or stressed, and smashed the basket into the oil - but it still happened on company time.

Which should make it as Workers Comp situation with the Company Insurance the billable party.

I can sympathize, though. We had to make an unexpected trip to the ER at 5:45 this morning. I had my first meal of the day about an hour ago.

Thank you.

 

It's my wife, though.

 

 

Yikes. That's never fun. Hope all is well, and the test results all come back positive.

 

Or... negative?

 

I hope the results are what you hope. 

 

Speaking of food... I'm hungry!

I tried to tell the kid that.

 

The manager tried to tell the kid that.

 

The district manager tried to tell the kid that.

 

I don't know if autism is at fault, or just a bad case of the stubborns, but he flat out refuses to see a doctor about it.

 

The kid also has a drug habit - which in no way helps his coordination and impulse control.

 

I hate working with the kid, he brings out every urge that I have to grab him by the shoulders and shake him, and I have, again, no clue how much of that has to do with autism/Asperger's, and how much has to do with him being a willful idiot. And then I feel bad about hating to work with him.

 

And trying to understand why he refuses to see a doctor for his work related injury makes my head hurt.

 

I very much fear that he is a willful idiot that has ASD, and that he uses his ASD to justify some really, really poor impulse control.

 

The Auld Grump - two of the kids in my Wednesday night game have mild ASD - getting them to interact is a challenge, but rewarding when I can manage it.

Based on my experience with autistic kids, it's very likely he has a very logical (to him) reason not to go to the doctor. Our understanding of that reasoning, however, is probably not forthcoming.

Hope the kid's OK, and the idiot inexperienced guy learned his lesson. 

That reminds me of many years ago when I worked with my good friend, Dave.  Dave was one of the supervisors, and as part of a promotion, he was made the company safety manager. Two days after Dave was promoted to safety manager, he had to file his first accident & injury report when an employee stabbed himself in the knee with a utility knife.

Guess which employee stabbed himself. 

No, not me.

Yep, Dave. 

 

 

Our safety manager got the position because of the "good ol' boys" club, and he's someone who won't do half of his normal job if someone isn't there with him because he's afraid of college kids. He's an idiot. It's one thing to say "I'm not going to this neighborhood because I can see the house parties and the 500 people who have a history of being aggressive towards us milling around in the street." It's another entirely to say "I'm not going to this neighborhood that's practically empty because I'm by myself and a college student might yell something at me." The second one is basically how he thinks. He can't handle any kind of confrontation at all in a job where confrontation is basically business as usual...

I know I am tempting the wrath of the Hounds, but is it permissible to know what WOOF stands for?

Wtf! Why would they give me a blood pressure medicine that can hurt my baby!!!!

 

 

I would suggest you ask your doctor if there's a safer alternative, or if you really need it.  High blood pressure can also be a major pregnancy risk, so it might be that the risk from the medicine is much smaller than the risk from leaving it untreated.  Most prenatal doctors will let you phone in questions like that without you necessarily needing to come in for an appointment.  (Of course if they have to take vitals then you'll have to go in.)  

 

I went through a similar thing with asthma inhalers.  Steroids are bad to take when you're pregnant, but not breathing is worse.  A lot of times the risk from a random medication is actually quite small, it's just that the bar for "safe to use while pregnant" is exceptionally high.

Belly rubs at all times, rustproof fire hydrants, treats for all, and the destruction of MEOW.
