    I'm not saying she doesn't deserve a tune-up, just it was handled in the worse possible way.

    I don't know about doing the job for her, but he could have handled it better. I would not be surprised if she started looking for another job the very next day.

    Tough love is sometimes the best way to get your point across.

    I said WITH her, not for her. Lead by example.

    I thank G-d everyday I grew up in the 60s and 70s.

    If she didn't understand the job or wasn't capable of doing it alone, then you do it with her.
    But she didn't want to get her shoes wet.

    Her shoes wet...we're talking about her shoes wet...we're not talking about a physical handicap, we're talking about her shoes getting wet.

    You snowflakes see the difference?

    Because I'm sure he inherited the manager's job at Safeway. Yeah, that's it.....

    Or...like most people. He went out there in the freaking rain when he was a young adult, got his shoes wet and now expects the same from his employees.
