There is a certain coworker that I can not stand. This person can not accept responsibility for any mistakes he makes. He accepted a check and did not have the lady sign it.. So when the boss confronts him about it, instead of apologizing, he says "Well, no one told me they had to sign the checks..."
WTF... Seriously?? I learned check writing in the third grade.
Anyways, I am an assistant manager and basically run the store. My boss is in and out as he pleases and I am second in command when he is gone. I have been here almost 9 years and take my job pretty seriously.
I try to be nonconfrontational. If I cant tell you something in a nice way then I usually keep my mouth shut. I am not here to boss people around and make them feel inferior, but I do expect some respect in return.
So today we had a customer call about a Christmas tree. So I grab the tag off of the tree and type in the number to see how many lights it has on it.
And the freaking number is wrong!!
So certain coworker comes up and I say, "This tree has the wrong number on it."
And he answers "Well that was the number that was on the box."
So I say "Well, obviously not because it is not ringing up."
And he replies with "not my freaking problem..."
UGGGHHH!! yes it is your freaking problem It is your department and your responsibility.
