Managers Don’t Provide A Shoulder To Cry On

| Working | July 13, 2016

(We are participating in a very large statewide event, and are expecting roughly 10,000 visitors and all of us are dreading it. The manager for the station I am working at decides to give us a pep talk.)

Manager: “Remember, we are going to be packed today, so we need to keep things moving. We won’t tolerate any whining or crying today.”

Me: “Does that apply to employees too, or just visitors?”

Manager: “If you start whining or crying, all of us are leaving and you’ll have to manage the station yourself.”

Me: “Noted.”

(We all survived the day.)
