Just Another Frustrated Cog In The Machine

, , , , | Working | December 30, 2020

I work at a large store. My manager always puts customers before her employees. 

Manager: “[Coworker], did you purposely embarrass a customer?”

Coworker: “How did I embarrass them?”

Manager: “She said you ran her card twice after it had already been declined once. You shouldn’t embarrass people like that.”

Coworker: “I wasn’t trying to embarrass her. I thought it was the machine’s fault.”

Manager: “We literally fixed those machines two days ago! I’m afraid you’ll have to be written up for this.”

My coworker walked away, confused. I know for a fact that my coworker wasn’t trying to be malicious, but at the same time, she’s not the brightest crayon in the box.
