  • What is her issue with me?

    We are both new to the job. I thought this girl at work was being friendly at first because she added me on SnapChat and watched all my SnapChat stories, but today at work she called me an idiot. I was serving customers and I mistakingly forgot to offer them a bag, and then after they left she went 'why didn't you give them a bag, you complete idiot' Another time, I saw her staring at me when I was out at front and she was whispering to another girl and laughing at me. She also often laughs when I slip up or make a mistake She is always the first person to view my stories on Snapchat, but she never likes my pictures What's her issue with me?

  • How to deal with a bully boss in a restaurant?

    So I'm a server at a nice restaurant and our manager bullies me. For example I had just checked on all my tables, everyone had food, everyone was good on drinks, nobody needed anything. I walked past the server line and stopped and filled a drink for myself and took a drink. My manager then says, "Isn't there anything you could be doing, go water your tables." I went and walked around the restaurant with a full pitcher and returned with it full due to the fact I had just checked and even customers looked at me a little weird for walking by so soon. I literally feel like I can't even stop to take a drink without her thinking I have nothing going on and her either barking out a command or just making a rude "workin hard or hardly workin?" kind of comment. But if I give my customers anymore attention I would be hovering over their table. I also am by far the server that cleans the most and find things to do just fine. So how do I get this lady off my back so I can take a sip without her freaking out?

  • Would you pay for a date that is obviously not going anywhere?

    The other night I went on a date. I met this girl on match.com and we have been talking for a couple of weeks. I wasn't really expecting much on this date. Our conversations had never really been more than me trying to talk to her and she giving a few nonsensical answers that never led to anything. But hey, I figured maybe she is bad with talking online. I asked her out, we went to play pool and had dinner. I had made reservations to a place for dinner but she was very insistent on a restaurant that she liked. A restaurant that was far more expensive than my place. Had the date gone well I wouldn't mind paying. It's the least I can do. But it didn't go well. She was the same stuck up person in real life as over the internet. She had zero personality, nothing interesting to say and she couldn't really offer anything else besides her fairly good looks. There was a mirror behind her and I saw she was sitting with snapchat and instagram. At this point I had enough. I went to our waiter and I paid for what I had. She had a full three course meal and I was not paying for that. I had already paid for pool and drinks at the bar. I went up to her and said: "Hey, this date is not going anywhere. You clearly have no social skills what so ever and you have been more with your phone than me. I have paid for my portion of the meal. You can pay the rest yourself". She started calling me names and didn't want to pay. I walked out and left her. Do you think that was wrong to do so?

  • Roommate's boyfriend snores LOUDLY, and he's over all the time?

    I love my roommate and her boyfriend, but he is over at our house ALL THE TIME. This alone is a little irritating (I moved in with two other women for a reason, I hate having to yell "Is Bob [let's call him Bob] here??" before I run to the dryer in my underwear to grab a pair of pants." But, he also snores. Loudly. Her room is right next to mine and the walls are thin. It's usually not horrible, but with it getting colder outside, it's been really bad. Like, waking me up several times throughout the night bad. I mentioned something about it to her (being as nice as possible) and all she said was "he needs a sleep study, that's about all that's going to help." No apology, nothing. I'm getting really tired of being tired because I'm getting woken up 2-3 times a night by someone's snoring who doesn't even live at our house. What the hell do I do?

  • What do you do when someone bluntly asks you a question you don't want to answer?

    I've always believed that just because someone asks you a blunt question, doesn't mean you are obligated to answer them. Sometimes people are just nosy and don't understand boundaries and they will never get it (unfortunately). For example - if a woman found out she was a pregnant (2 months) and would prefer to keep quiet until months later. Her mother in law point blank asks, "are you pregnant"? How do you think she should respond? If she were to say, "no" to protect the baby, the mother in law would later in the future accuse her of lying. On the other hand, it's no one's business, even if they asked. Another example - if you were in the process of a personal goal - being in a certificate program or in school again and would like to keep the attention away from you until you finish this goal. If someone asks you, "hey, are you in school now?" and don't want to answer, how would you respond?

  • What do i do about my neighbor needing me to give him a ride to work every day?

    i would be able to and he would be fine with giving me gas money, but the thing is i don't want to do it every single day. i work 3rd shift, i come home about an hour before he wants to leave, and then he needs me to pick him up 8 hours later which is an hour before i lay down. it might sound mean that the only reason is that i don't want to, but that's just the way it is. every day twice a day is just going to get old for me. the thing is, there's nobody that he can carpool with, there are no taxi services in my area. but i also don't want him to lose a job because i won't give him a ride. what do i do?

  • Are pizza delivery drivers responsible to give the customer change?

    I ordered a pizza today but the delivery driver had no change so he had to go back to get change which was a pain to wait for him because he spent nearly 20 minutes. I told him next time he needs to come prepared because not every customer is going to have exact change. I mean, what pizza delivery driver never has $1.00 bills on them or change? You would think they always bring change. Is it the pizza driver’s responsibility to have change on them? Was I being a little rude by telling him that he should come prepared because he literally held my day up and kept me waiting where I had to be somewhere and it took him that long to come back?

    As noone cares, and how are you is just a comment.. Of course I won’t say “Still feel bad” as that is too much information. Should I have just said “ok thanks how are you?” Though I still felt not great?
