Somehow Managed To Table That Discussion

| PA, USA | Working | December 5, 2013

(It is my first day on the register at a new job. I am learning very quickly that my general manager isn’t quite all there. We are in the middle of the lunch rush.)

Manager: “[My Name], what are you doing?! Why haven’t you wiped down these tables?”

Me: “I’m sorry. The line has been nonstop. I haven’t had a moment to—”

Manager: “I’m going to the bank now and when I come back I expect these tables to be spotless. Remember, a cashier never stands still.”

Me: “O-okay.”

(The line stretches to the door the entire time she’s gone and I never get a chance to move. She comes back about 15 minutes later.)

Manager: “Nice job on those tables, [My Name]. Keep up the good work.”
