I experienced the same thing when i started my job, you can come off in a bad way towards people without really doing anything. Its bull poo but somehow i have managed to work thru it.
Yep, I tend bar at a Golf Course clubhouse and work with a bunch of women. Apparently I upset them in some way that I have no idea I did, or was doing. I was told, through the grape vine, that it was because of the condescending thing - again. Anyhow, one of the girls went to a higher up in the management company that I work for and complained about me getting more hours than everyone else and how she couldn't believe that a Felon would be treated so good by the company. Turns out that this higher up didn't know about my record and I'm currently "temporarily suspended" until they "sort it out".
All the residents and customers love me. I got a big group email from the residents in a show of support, which was pretty awesome.
Load a crap.
