New Manager: *shouting* “Don’t f****** tell me what to do, you f****** piece of s***! I’m the f****** manager, not you!” *stomps out the back door*

Me: “[Owner’s Daughter], does he know who you are?”

Owner’s Daughter: *texting mom* “I don’t think so, but he’s about to.”

A Love/Hate Relationship With Your Boss

| Westfield, WI, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Bosses & Owners, Overtime

(It’s the beginning of the slow time of year and as a result, hours are being cut and people are being sent home early. On this particular day, I’m exhausted, have a long day ahead, and am practically begging to be cut.)

Me: “Hey, so… what are the chances of me going home early?”

Manager: “You’re are NOT going anywhere! I’ll send [Coworker who finishes the same time as me but started later] home early before I send you home early.”

Me: “So, either you love me and want to keep me here, or you hate me and want me to suffer.”

Manager: “You will never know…”

A Conversation Stopper

, | Hertfordshire, England, UK | Bad Behavior, Coworkers, Family & Kids, Food & Drink, Rude & Risque, Trending

(I work with a lot of young students aged 16-18. One shift I receive a few complaints from customers with young children, complaining that they and their children can hear my colleagues’ inappropriate conversations about their weekend partying — including stories about sex and drugs. I call a meeting with my colleagues to talk to them about this.)

Me: “Now, you know I don’t have a problem with you guys talking a bit on shift so long as you keep working. But you shouldn’t have personal conversations within earshot of customers.”

Colleague #1: “Why not? If we’re allowed to talk then we’re gonna talk!”

Me: “Like I said, I have no problem with you talking while you work. I know you’re friends outside of work. It’s WHAT you’re talking about that’s the issue.”

Colleague #2: “What do you mean?”

Me: “Well, we’ve had some complaints about your conversations. Parents have complained that they can hear you talking about sex and drugs and how ‘wasted’ and ‘f***ed up’ you were. That’s not an appropriate conversation to have at work — especially in a family restaurant!”

Colleague #1: “Well, it’s their fault!”

Me: “What?”

Colleague #1: “Why are they listening to our private conversations?! They should mind their own business!”

Colleague #2: “Yeah! It’s rude! It’s illegal, innit?”

Me: “You are loudly talking, and swearing, about having sex and doing drugs, whilst serving our customers and their small children. That’s completely unacceptable!”

Colleague #1: “Well, they shouldn’t be listening to our conversations!”

Me: “…Wow.”

Should Have Covered That In A Cheesy Training Video

(This was at a popular fast food restaurant as my friend was trying to order.)

Friend: “Hello, I’d like a double hamburger.”

Cashier: “Right, a double cheeseburger then.”

Friend: “No, I want a double hamburger.”

Cashier: “What is that?”

Friend: “A double cheeseburger with no cheese.”

Cashier: “So a hamburger is a cheeseburger with no cheese?”

Friend: “Yes.”

Cashier: *looks bewildered at this shocking discovery*
