In Need Of Hire Education

(At the fast food restaurant where I work, most of my coworkers are in high school.)

Manager: *to coworker* “I need you to stay late and close. [Another coworker] called in sick.”

Coworker: “I can’t. I have to study for a test I’m taking tomorrow.”

Manager: “But I need you to stay. What’s more important, school or this job?”

Coworker: *stunned* “Finishing high school is more important!”

Manager: “Fine, have it your way. But with that attitude, you’ll never amount to much!”
