Thinks She Is The Big Cheese

, , , | Working | January 4, 2019

(I work at a small pizza chain and have been there for a little over two years. I’m working with someone who is new, but has been at ur restaurant long enough to know how to do most things. I am seventeen when this happens and she is at least fifty, so she thinks it’s okay to not listen to me. She has had an attitude all day because I am “bossy” and work too fast for her to keep up.)

Me: “Hey, [Coworker]. Could you go stack the bags of cheese in the cooler?”

Coworker: “Oh, I don’t know how to do that.”

Me: “Just open the boxes of cheese and stack them on the shelf. It should only take a minute.”

Coworker: “Well, I’ve never done that. I’ve never had to stack cheese before.” *opens the cooler and the shelf is about half full* “There is already cheese up here!”

Me: “Yeah, you need to stack more so the evening shift has some to use. If they run out then we get in trouble.”

Coworker: “Oh, well, I’ve never done this. I don’t know anything about stacking cheese.”

Me: *dies a little*

(She does this every time I work with her. She never knows how to do her job and slacks off constantly. Just because you’re older than your coworkers, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to them!)
