Kroger just gave me a good reason not to cover my coworker's @$$es any more. Fu-ck it! Last time I cover for someone who called out 2 hrs before their shift. Everyone was in a foul @$$ mood that day. While I'm all for being on call you could at least respect me for covering someone's @$$ rather than being snidy moody @$$ holes all damn fu-cken day. Now you lost that privilege for ever and I'm just going back to working what I'm scheduled. I am no fu-cken more covering people's @$$es! Generally I like to pick up extra hours but you guys sealed the deal with being sheer @$$ holes that day. Our store is loosing staff over the hours spread so thinly in the front end and people are calling out over it and the others are picking up the slack. So yea thanks for fu-cking us kroger.

No good deed goes unpunished, lol..... For many years i've adopted a simple policy: go to work on time, keep to myself, do a good job on what's expected of me, and go home. the only social exchanges I have are work related, fast, and right to the point. My only career ambitions are to be a number on a payroll sheet, and be able to retire as early as possible. I am neither the shop trouble maker nor employee of the month lol...........Trust me, you work like that and nobody can touch you.

You sound like me.  I've worked for Kroger for over 30 years and yet very few people outside of my department  know my name or even know I exist.

 I TOTALLY understand and agree that if you keep to yourself, don't get involved too  much with other employees, just do a good job, go home, etc, this helps to avoid drama and potential problems. HOWEVER, at the same time, I have to say that if it is really true that "very few people" outside of your department (after you have worked at Kroger for 30 years) know your name and even know you exist,  I find that VERY strange.........it can be a strong indication that you come across as cold, unfriendly, uncaring, and "not a people person".

I always enjoy greeting other employees, knowing their names, acknowledging their existence, etc. That is NOT because I have any desire WHATSOEVER to get entangled with their lives, or get involved in any kind of drama. I just want to be friendly to all, and let other employees know I value them enough to learn their names and "say Hi".  After all, they are fellow human beings here on planet earth, and have problems, sorrows and heartaches just like you and I do.  Just a thought.....

 You can find it how ever you want so long as you find your path away from mine. 

Here's a thought of my own:Your concern with other's plights and to connect with them on human levels, while cool to you, just shouts of your bloated ego. You'll never see it that way, but the rest of the world does. Keep that $hit away from us.

 Or it could mean that after 30 years I've seen so many people come and go that there's no point in learning who they are.  The people who do know me are the lifers who have been around for as long as I have.

In all fairness, how can anyone remain a people person while working retail?

I was never a people person, but working here has caused me to lose all faith in humanity and all sympathy for other people.  For the rest of my life.  I mean, holy ****ing ****.  Giant Meteor 2020.  I had no idea other people were like this.

Sounds like the OP is merely a realist who prefers to keep a low profile, and that's respectable.  Considering my coworkers, that means a hell of a lot.

Being a "people person" IS a requirement for working at Kroger. Kroger's thought is 'not a people person maybe there are other jobs you may like outside of retail.' That's just how it is. But that does NOT excuse people for being a$$hats when YOU do THEM a favor by covering a shift and they in turn, crap on you.
I, as well, RARELY cover for people anymore. I have been shafted one too many times. If the odds are in my favor or I REALLY need an extra day off for something, I will do it.
I am not a people person's per se, I do not get all "giddy and happy" when someone approaches me, I am just courteous, polite, and quite approachable but I don't actively seek out people to greet when on the clock or off for that matter.
