I work in fast food. It’s not like I’m going to be here forever.
Pretty high stress for such low pay, but the real benefit is the
prestige (just kidding).I have a manager that thinks she is the shit. She thinks
she is the smartest person to ever grace Earth with her presence.
She’s actually an online law school dropout who can’t stop reliving
her glory days as a would-be lawyer. She has zero sense of humor.
Everything is a crime.
During a slow shift one day, I was telling a co-worker
as I scrubbed the floor about a practical joke I saw online.
Some co-workers had sealed off this guy’s cubicle and filled it to the
brim with packing peanuts. So funny, right? My no-nonsense manager
overheard and got all redfaced and began shouting at us about how
that’s not funny, it’s a crime. Her tirade was complete with poorly
used legal jargon and her analysis of how exactly she would prosecute
the case both criminally and civilly. When we tried to tell her it was
just a joke, she told us we could use a little more empathy in our
lives. What a sad, pathetic wannabe.
