Thanks to everyone who responded to my last two posts. Some may remember the pregnant shift supervisor I described in one of my last posts. Just a brief recap: Basically she is very moody and cries at the drop of a hat. She accidentally knocked over a customers cup of coffee while ringing him up. He wasn't upset, yet she burst into tears and ran into the back room. The customer kept asking us if she was ok. It was pretty embarrassing. I had tried to go back and talk to her. She screamed "What!?!" at me. I walked away. Later on she apologized.
Well, last night I was working and talking to one woman who knows and likes working with this girl. She had stopped in the night that this happened, so she vaguely knew what was going on. I said to her I was concerned because of the way she yelled at me. I said that I understand that she's hormonal now, but I still don't want to be talked to that way. Well, our manager was around the corner and overheard us talking and said, "What happened? I need to know what happened." The woman I was speaking to said, "Don't ask me, ask her." So I told the manager that basically she's just really emotional and snapped at me, but she apologized. I left out the part about the customer and the spilled coffee. The manager was saying that she won't say anything, but she will be keeping an eye out.
I am worried that this woman and the other kid that was working last night will go and tell this girl what happened. I've only been there a month and she's been there two years. So obviously she has a lot more power, especially since she's a shift supervisor. I have to work with her Monday night. If she approaches me, what should I say or do? I already have enough drama at my full-time Monday - Friday day job. I don't need it here at Starbucks. I'm only working at Starbucks for some extra money to pay some bills.
As a side note, most people love working with this girl. They think she's great. She is a nice person most of the time; however, you just never know what's going to happen next. Maybe there's something wrong with me because I am one of the very few that actually doesn't enjoy working with her. Basically, I'm not going to go out of my way to make friends there. First of all, I am 10 years older than most of these kids (I'm only in my late 20's). I don't have much in common with them.
Any advice about how to handle this would be greatly appreciated.
