Maybe I’m just getting old, but when I was in my twenties and working I always listened to my supervisor and tried to play by the rules. I was very attentive and dedicated to doing a good job. Today I really wonder what has become of all the young people. No one really cares anymore. It blows me away. They think they know everything about everything and there’s no point in telling them the company rules, or how to do something. Not only that, I think common sense is lacking.
Young people just don’t seem to have the same attitude or work ethic as us older folks. This gal in question has done many crazy things at work. She won’t listen to any of us and I do wonder why she still has a job. But this latest thing is simply beyond me. A group of us were working last Saturday and she was heating up soup and serving that to the shoppers. Somewhere in the course of the day she decided to take off her shoes because her feet hurt. How she had time to even do this is beyond me because we get super busy on the weekends. On top of that it’s winter here. How can you work on concrete without foot protection?
The next thing you know this girl is working barefoot. Eeeww. What? You don’t serve food, or work around food barefoot unless it’s in your own house. All of us know we’re supposed to wear closed in shoes and socks. The only other place this gal has worked is McDonalds and it now makes me wonder if they walk around the kitchen there in their bare feet. If the boss was there that day and had seen this I’m sure the girl wouldn’t be working there now. We all know the dress code.
I still can’t figure out why the young people think the rules include everyone but them. Is our society really becoming that lax where no one cares anymore? I know all the customers care about at our work is getting free food so maybe no one noticed the workers bare feet.
But this isn’t the only young person who is above all the company rules. Maybe some other time I’ll go into more stories.
