Hey, I'm Not A Manager!

Just as I accurately predicted in DingDong, The Witch is Dead, the owner/manager at the non-PRS job made his little bitch daughter manager today. There were two manager slots open. Guess who got the other one? ::drumroll:: HER BOYFRIEND!

Happy birthday, me. Never underestimate the power of nepotism.

But wait! It gets better! The GM pulled me and Weezie aside and told us that ALL the other managers nominated me and Weez for the manager slots, but Owner/Manager overruled everyone, because, and I'm quoting what he told the GM, "I just don't see it with those two boys. They're good, hard workers, and I can trust them, but they also rebels."

Again, to recap: me and Weezie show up everyday we are scheduled (and even a few days we are not, although his record there is better than mine), never late, do everything we're asked, passed the (unofficial) managerial test easily when we took it, and are his most trustworthy employees... but we're rebels. And hence, we're not managers. I guess it's easy to see in Owner/Manager's eyes, since Weezie is a white rapper (and Owner/Manager has cracked one too many jokes about THAT) and I'm a smart-ass (I plead guilty), and neither of us kiss ass.

Just wait till either of them (or both, since OF COURSE they're gonna share shifts!) fuck up big time on the job. Mark my words, it'll happen. I got the over/under on them getting caught having sex in the office as their crime. (That's not a first at our store; the GM knocked up his fiancée doing that!)

Meanwhile, we "rebels" will keep plugging along... just like we always do...

Where I work... it is like that but you don't even have the excuse of nepotism.. I trained a girl to be a teller 9 months ago. she is now a head teller. jumped right over back up teller.. in fact the 3 other back up tellers weren't even asked... Being cute and young beats out not so cute and older I'm going to give you an extra big birthday hug and kiss

My dear welcome to our world!!!! I have seen this happening over and over in the past 16 years. But things to turn around. Justice does prevail in the end. People who get pushed into something they are not ready for usually crash and burn!
I know it is a big ask, but try and stay possitive, work hard and in the end you will be rewarded!
