    That's why all kids should have to move sprinkler pipe at least once in their lives. Your feet don't stay dry. And you will very much appreciate any other job.

    No one said she shouldn't we are saying the manager is a dick and ten bucks says he is also a millenial. If not, something went terribly wrong in his life.

    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.
    Not talking about the safeway manager. You may have noticed I was responding to a comment about the ad.

    Yes if he wants her to quit on the spot, yes he did.
