    I’m sure the irony was not wasted on you that he needed you to tell him more than once, but couldn’t put up with his employee needing the same ;-)

      Yep, seems to be irony everywhere when we look at leaders in society Pratum. It’s starts with our ‘leaders’ in government and just trickles down. I seriously wonder if anyone in Washington actually practices what they preach– republican, democrat, you name it. Quite sad, really.

    So, I popped over here from Men With Pens – and lo and behold, found something pretty awesome.

    You’re entirely right. And I bet the irony WAS lost on him. He’s too busy thinking that he must look like a goof standing around and waiting, then taking it out on the poor cook.

    Was the burger satisfying at least?

      Funny you should ask Paige….Based on what my wife said, the burger was clearly nothing to write home about….

      Glad you found the site…I love Men w Pens…Tremendous blog.

      Hope we chat again.

    Well said, Marcus!

    Hypocritical people like that are not only found in restaurants, but all over society today – in schools, families, and even relationships. It’s really a sad thing to witness, but, on the other hand, there’s really nothing you can do about it other than confront the person and remind him of his own flaws. Of course, that can result in negative energy and just isn’t wise or possible in some situations.

      You bring up a great point Christina. I kicked myself for not saying something to this guy as he sure needed someone to tell him that his leadership hypocrisy was pretty ridiculous….but like you said, the energy that produces can be a bad thing as well….tough debate.

    I totally feel you on this. Now that I look back on it.. EVERY SINGLE manager (boss) I ever had… has this aire of high and mighty… not stopping to realize that the more they come off like that the more transparent they become. (Actually I’m about to write about that myself… grr.)

      The question is why is that Kerilyn? Why do so many bosses and managers have this style?? Heck, often times their behavior really isn’t who they are anyway.

      Anyway, so kind of you to stop by KL….love everything you say :-)

    Always liked this quote from Thoreau:

    “It is an interesting question how far men would retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes.”

    Unfortunately, I’m not sure the fast food industry really provides an accurate microcosm of society. Pretty sure everyone with the capability leaves for greener pastures. Hence, leaders are in short supply.

      Dang Lach, that is a sweet quote from HDT…I think in some ways, any business can provide a microcosm of a least a part of our society, which I’m sure I saw on this occasion.

      But yes, leaders are in short supply my friend…Looking forward to reading more of your excellent posts..
