    His reply was classic - "well I hope you don't ruin your shoes looking for another job".
    We clapped, she cried and headed out to get carts.

    She didn't understand her place, but was put there rather quickly.
    OK little intro

    In my life I've been a grunt.....I've been a tradesman (Licensed)--I've been a non-union foreman in trades---I've been a union tradesman----I've been a management supervisor--- for large industrial settings in the trades dept.

    What I can say is...this was handled so terribly wrong---you can get the job done and not be an ass and belittle your team---something like this could scar a young person---unacceptable!!!

    How do you know she was not hired under the premise of indoor work and dressed accordingly---then put on the spot--broke down

    The idiot manager needs some coaching or a new career

    Yeah... no...

    The absolute first thing I was taught as an NCO is always to praise in public and to admonish in private. It is the golden rule of being a good supervisor of people.

    I guess some like to cater to the snowflakes.

    I worked a few jobs where I was given that type of treatment. It only strengthened my desire to obtain a college degree so I didn't get stuck working a shit job the rest of my life.

    Suck it up and move on. Your mileage may vary.

    Some people may only have the option of this kind of job for varying reasons

    Making them fearful for their livelihood is akin to torture---do this or else----is not the way we help people grow into all they can be and be an asset to a company

    We need to look past our own placements in life and put ourselves in other's shoes---no one is saying--yeah lets let dope smoker sleep all shift---but you can bring out the best in people with simple courtesy and explaining direction with respect

    I hope he never finds someone to work for such a lump of shit and is forced to do the job himself and then he may learn to value the people he means to hire.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I get what you're saying. But that story (what CO Native shared) is the world I grew up in. As did most of my friends and co-workers at the time. Nobody is worse off because of it.

    This is probably shocking, but he probably did do the job himself when he was younger.
