No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

| Working | February 23, 2014

Supervisor: “Hey, [My Name], take your lunch.”

(I do. Fifteen minutes later I get a page to go to the front of the store. I don’t have to answer it since I’m clocked off, but figure if the supervisor has already forgotten she sent me to lunch, she’ll just keep paging me till my break is up. I go out.)

Supervisor: *seeing me* “[My Name], go and help.”

Me: “Sorry. I just came to remind you I’m on lunch, as per your instructions.”

(I go back to lunch. Several hours later, at the end of my shift, she pulls me aside.)

Supervisor: “I have had it with your attitude!”

Me: “What?!”

Supervisor: “When I paged you, you should have ignored me! I would have realized you were on lunch if you didn’t come out!”

(Well, she can consider herself ignored from now on!)
