First let me say this, before anything else. For people who know me, they know im the last person that would "snitch" on someone. I dont care what others do with their lives.. why should I? But, there is a line... when your life and the choices you make, starts interfering with mine.. There is a problem. Especially.. in my work inviroment. I just got a new job about.. mmm.. 1 and 1/2 months ago. Fast food, bojangles. Up until now, ive had no problems with the workers. School just started back for us, thus we are more busy in the morning times, and lunch, because the teens get out for lunch, and come for breakfast. And today is friday and for most people.. pay day. So very busy day!!! Keep in mind that I am new.. still trying to get the hang of things, learn the menu, etc, and have never been in fast food before. We were already short staffed today, but around 11pm before lunch (when our business starts picking up again) the manager over us today starts acting very odd. Hanging all over people, giggling for no reason, and then starts bragging about "oh ive had too much to drink, i cant even remember the last few customers! im just not all here right now.. etc etc." WTF! Okay so pissed enough at that.. but THEN... she completely quits working.. and goes to the back sitting down and goofing off with other males.. just all over them! As i walk back there once.. carying mildy heavy boxes on my shoulders (but not too much im 23 wks pregnant...) She looks at me and flat out busts out laughing.. "Im sorry! Im just not here right now!!! hahahahahah!" WHAT THE HELL? your sorry.. watching my pregnant, new ass struggle with all this shit.. and you just sit there and watch and laugh! B>S! I about cried so many times today, being so overwhelemed with all the business.. working drive through practically alone.. while she sits in the back flirting/laughing.. and NOT working. As the new person its hard to know what to do, i dont want to be hated.. but god.. i shouldnt have to put up with that! Especially a manger!? She even said something like "I know no one will say anything, because everyone has done something wrong at least once here" ???????? Sorry for the long message.. im just so pissed.!

I would speak with you GM first, or of she is the GM speak with the area manager.

I've been service industry for many years, that is not acceptable. Such a HUGE liability. Plus just a bad example.

This is an acceptable time to snitch.

Do they generally keep confidentiality of how they recieved the info? I mean, surely theres got to be a camera somewhere around... i dont want to be the hated new girl who got the "cool" boss fired, but at the same time.. this is ridiculus!?

I would call your HR manager or something... because her not helping you or atleast telling someone else to help you would have made it so that [if it were me] I would have A. Said something like 'come help me now...' or most likely B. dropped everything in my arms on the floor and walked outside, took out my cellphone and called upper management...

I was an angry pregnant woman...

 That sucks. Sorry that you had to experience something like that. That is sad that the manger is drinking while being on the job. You should say something that is a no no... If  other co-workers see that she is drinking they will want too do the very same.  There are cameras..
