Contact Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Tell them you are in the minority in a store with racial tensions. Make sure you record your conversations with Al and Jesse so you have proof that they commited to helping you. Video tape your meeting with Al and Jesse making sure you get their reactions when they see you are white. Share video with us so when can enjoy the reaction of two of the biggest racists known to man when they see they almost helped a white girl.

Awesome!


I would second (or third or what ever) not stiring the pot by talking to other employees. You may get fired, but if you did honest work then it shouldn't really bother you and the other people can screw off. I worked at Meijer for about 6 months and had to deal with the people that had gotten lazy. I did my job to the best of my ability and that was too much for them. They didn't like it. However, My Manager loved me because I wasn't them.

Working your hardest (which I'm sure you are) is about the best way to prove those kind of people wrong. If you get fired for it then they didn't deserve to have a worker of your Caliber working for them.

I haven't read everything......but, no union contract you are an "at-will" employee and can be fired without cause or with cause as long as there is no discrimination . You have no cause for action.

Find another job.

Recently a promotion opened up at my workplace and a co worker sent a petty email to the floor manager reporting "mistakes" I have made on the job. Fortunately my manager saw it as my co worker being unprofessional. I handled it by confronting my co worker with the printed email making it clear he made it sound like a personal attack and if there are any problems he has working with me to bring them to my attention, and have not had a problem yet

Almost everywhere there is someone that will kiss ass to every superior and is out to make anyone look bad if it makes them look better. The best way to handle such situations is to confront them and let them know it does not create a good work environment with a tattle tale. After all if no one tells YOU they have a problem you cannot change it.

Using the words "tattle tale" makes you sound like you're 14 and were actually fucking up on the job.

For the 2nd time I do NOT work at walmart.

And I spent the day talking to my co workers and they all know who is spreading the lies and rumors and it is exactly who I figured it was.

The girls that are talking crap are the ones who leave work early all the time, call in, come in late, wander off, or stand around and talk while the rest of us work.

So two can play this game. I'm just going to start calling HR and reporting them for everything they do wrong. Like when they ask to leave early, or continuely call in or ask to go home early etc.


And my main point is if no one tells me what I'm doing "wrong" how can I make a change? Pretty retarded if you ask me. Just like them thinking I can change some assholes perception of me in a week, especially if that person doesn't like me from the start.

Ummm.... Great way to lose your job. HR can see their punches, and knows when they are leaving early. I'd also bet HR knows who the poor performers are, so if thats who is talking bad about you, just keep doing your job, and the problem will solve itself.

X2. Bringing Dramatic Attention to yourself will only make the problem worst.

The words tattle tale were not used in a professional envirnment. I said it here to provoke imagry of childish and unprofessional behavior. FWIW the issue was due to being short staffed with physically not enough time to finalize a few low importance things from the night shift, which were explained at handoff.

Agreed. Don't be a vindictive asshole and "fight back." Your best bet is to continue doing your job, and go through HR and your GM to make sure they understand that you are being harassed. As stated before, keep a log of everything. Keep your co-workers out of things, they aren't your friends. Most of them will be two faced bastards.


I look forward to watching this thread be trolled further.
