Recently I had a run-in with some sort of manager at work: to cut a long story short, he asked for a newspaper which was sold out and got mad when the only one I could find for him was wrecked. Basically: he was a dick. He was forced to apologise to me for "unprofessional behaviour" after I made a complaint.

I was wondering, has anyone else had a run-in with an up themself manager who thinks he/she's some sort of big shot, when actually they're bitter old people who are slightly pissed of at the fact they're the manager in some run down supermarket (the same one they've worked in since they were teenagers)?

Not being specific here or anything :P

Managers at these types of places(Supermarkets, Franchise Stores) are usually power trippers. You'll move on go to college get a real job and realize how sad it really is....

The manager I worked for wasn't a dick, but the owner, he was. He owned the place I worked at (resturaunt) but he didn't live there. He came home that summer and just hung around the place for a couple weeks. It came to fruition when he called this staff meeting (wait staff (me) and bussers) out to the main dining hall before dinner service, and singled me out, completley embarrassing me in front of all my coworkers. He said I did basically everything wrong the night before, and even my clothes that I had bought for work weren't good enough, when the manager told me it might have been even too dressy. I quit shortly thereafter.

EDIT: I forgot to mention at that point I had been working there for two months, and I followed all the rules I was taught the first couple days, so I was doing what I thought was a good job. He also said, and I quote:

"My son wears pants like that, and I would NEVER let him work in my resturaunt".

So...yeah.

My manager called me retarded once because I didn't know what movie she was talking about.

I spit in her coffee everyday.
