Hey,just needed to vent about my job.
So I work at a large show barn with about 20 horses. I work Sat. And Sun. 9-11 mucking stalls,feeding and watering to pay off my horses board and get some extra $$$ for myself. I have been doing this for about 42hrs and thought I was doing a good job because there was no wet spots and I saved a lot of shavings. Anyways I have learned quite a bit and the people there seem to be really nice but today the BO came up to me and said the cleaning was unacceptable because I didn't put enough shavings in and I didn't rake the shavings aways from the door. So I fixed it but he said he needs to give me a cleaning lesson tomorrow. I kind of panicked at the time because I can't blow this job and I had no good reason. I just find that its strange that all of a sudden he tells me this but not earlier. I also find it unfair that he judges my work a couple hours after its done by then horses have peed,pooed and rolled making it look like it wasn't done. I thought today was one of my best cleanings but I guess not. I have been really stressed because its exam time at school and I just got over being sick not to mention my family troubles. I am trying my VERY best and I do it as fast as I can but I always mess up and it puts my job in the balance again! Tomorrow I might just say that I am trying my best I will get better. I haven't heard any complaints from the boarders so I thought I was doing fine. I also make sure that all the shavings are on the pile,the manure piles are straight,both barns are swept,horses are watered and fed and all the doors are closed. I also have no clue what I am getting payed all I know is that my board is payed off. Sorry for the ramble.
