I work at sears where the managment is sloppy, for anyone who works at the sears in Alaska. Two managers were complaining. However this snarky manager---- Let me just write down the convo.
Manager1: There are only two registers you should be closing down the other two were already done.
Manager2: We can't leave on time because you guys took so long closing down your registers.
Me: We had four registers to count down and verify.
Manage1r: No you only had two.
Me: We had to count down 4 because the earlier employees hadnt, Kevin and I are still pretty new at this. We havent been working the registers station for very long.
Manager2: Well why did it take you thirty minutes? You only have to count to 100, how hard is that?
Me: If you guys are so mad about not being on time, why werent any of you out there helping us close down the store? Isn't being a leader part of being on a team? You didnt let us close our registers till 9:15, it didn't take us 30 minutes, actually.
I was actually looking at the group of employees who were all complaining as well as the managers.
Everybodys shift was done at 9:30, everybody clocked off at 9:32.
This is what I said to my husband.
Me: Explained Situation
Hubby: You need to learn how to shut your mouth
Me: Are you kidding me?!
Hubby: Their your managers they can talk to you however they want.
Me: She basically called me stupid by asking how hard it is to count to 100.
What the hell? Was I wrong?

It's not that he's right but, they can make your life harder. Your manager was out of line, but if you are going to continue working there your stuck with them,and their attitude isn't going to improve. It's up to you how much of their lack of good managerial skills your willing to deal with, if your sticking around for awhile I'd avoid conflict, it's not worth it. There are easier ways to deal with difficult co-workers.
