When I started working at Target, I met one of the managers and thought she was a bit of a crank. You know, moderately disagreeable, a bit bitchy, not the sort of person that you really want to get to know. Last night, I learned different.

The store was closed and we were finishing up everything to go home. One of the team leads asked one of her subordinates to do something. Or should I say that she “asked” him to do it.
Well, he not only refused, but he rationalized (loudly) that she “only” asked him to do it, so he didn’t HAVE to do it. (Uh, whoops). He did this in front of the whole lot of us who were closing last night. This interaction kind of pissed me off, because he’s a punk-ass kid at the best of times.
Anyway, the manager on duty yelled at him in the “Mom” voice in front of everybody, since he caused a scene in front of everybody, too. Then she told him that she was writing him up again for insubordination.
When I told Tori about this, she was totally like “WTF, dude?!” After all, when someone who is the boss of you “asks” you to do something, it’s really just a nice way of them *telling* you do to it.
Damn kids. Some should be tied up and left in a closet until they mature.
