As Clear As Black And White

, , , , | Working | June 6, 2017

(My manager leaves me a list of jobs to do, one of which is to merchandise some new products. He leaves a picture of how it’s supposed to be set up. A few days later a representative from our corporate offices comes in and sees the display, after which she leaves.)

Manager: “[My Name], who did the set up for this?”

Me: “I did. Why?”

Manager: “Well, I just got told off because it was set up wrong. I have to write you up”

Me: “What was wrong with it?”

Manager: *points to one shelf out of five* “On this shelf the colours aren’t in the right order.”

Me: “You’re kidding?”

Manager: “No, I gave you a picture to follow and you didn’t follow it.”

Me: “Yeah, you gave me a picture all right. It was black and white. I tried looking for a colour copy of it. Where was that?”

Manager: “Oh, I took that home… Oh… I’ll let you off this time.”

(I’m so lucky to have a considerate manager… not.)
