More News from Starbucksland
I don't know what it is about me and starting a new job at Starbucks. Last time it was the guy with OCD, this time it is the immature 16 year-old.
Today, she again got indignant that I would deign to suggest that she might do something different. Then she immediately pointed out how I did the exact thing a few days ago that I was correcting her for. Arrggg...
I spent the last two hours of work just doing my job and not talking to her. I felt like a 10 year-old but I was afraid that anything I said would cause her to get angry. I said that I was frustrated with the situation and that I didn't want to not talk to her but I get fed up having everything I say cause her to get pisssy. She said that if she was in a bad mood, then comments would make her angry. I told her that I didn't have time to try to figure out if she was in a good mood or not.
Tomorrow I am going to talk to my manager. This cannot go on. If I am to ignore when she does the job wrong, then so be it. If I am to help her learn, then she needs to know that I have the authority to do so. Otherwise, I need to be scheduled at other times than her or I will just ignore her.
I hate situations like this.
