Re: grumble stupid assistant managers…
When you use a profanity to “emphasize a statement”, it isn’t cursing at someone?
It is not. The statement was not directed at her. I know you know semantics so I have no idea why you’re arguing something so stupid.
EDIT: To elaborate and prevent this part of the argument from continuing.
Both sentences “go fuck yourself” and “leave me the hell alone” are imperative sentences and their similarities are the commands given i.e. the words “go” and “leave” in this case. Fuck is the focal point of the former sentence and cannot be removed, only replaced, and is therefore to be considered “Cursing at someone” whereas hell can be removed as it is only being used as an intensifier and has no direct bearing on the structure of the sentence.
Again…to the statement “leave me the hell alone is cursing at someone,” it is not.
I don’t care what you think the situation is, what the other employees think of her, or any of that. She’s your boss; you do what she tells you.
She’s an assistant manager, i.e. a person that assists the -actual- manager. She is NOT my boss, and that is a quote from the -actual- manager. She does not have the authority to write me up, nor to suspend or fire me.
As I said, you DON’T know how things work, and to automatically assume that an assistant manager in this franchise works like assistant managers in whatever franchise you worked in proves that. Her range of authority is to call people in to work, make the schedule, and run a shift in place of the manager. Any disciplinary actions are basically her telling the manager about a situation and the manager deciding what to do. This is all in the employee handbook we received, so stop assuming she’s my boss.
Manager or not, she has yet to receive any real level of authority and won’t until it’s confirmed that the GM is moving to another store, which is currently still a rumor.
Now this is hardly the only time you have had a run in with her. You told us what you did a month ago to her, or did you forget that? Then you were celebrating because you heard a rumor (which turned out to be untrue apparently) that she got demoted. After what you said and actually got away with, you ought to be on your best behavior, yet you are like a little child, pushing the limits and testing what you can get away with because Mommy gave you a break instead of spanking you.
So…basically I get yelled at by her for absolutely no fucking reason, tell her to leave me alone, and I’m at fault and not just at fault but “acting like a child.”
Wow…ya know, maybe my GM was wrong to tell me that I had an appropriate reaction to that situation, maybe she was wrong to tell me that Kalli is a bit of a bitch and the best thing I can do is just try to get through the day without completely going off on her, and just try to forget that particular event.
Yeah…I’ll trust a guy I don’t know from a state I’ve never been to currently preaching a religion I don’t agree to over the actual GM. Makes perfect sense to me.
Seriously, stop acting like you know everything that’s going on. Most of the employees including the GM really hate working with her but she has yet to do anything so out of bounds to deserve any form of disciplinary action, she’s constantly being lazy texting on her cell phone and taking up to a couple hours worth of breaks in a 6 hour shift just to talk to a few friends who happen to come inside for a sandwich, and she’s a mostly recovered crack addict.
Yeah, I’m the one who’s acting weird in this situation, that makes total sense; /sarcasm.
