I recently moved and I don't know where my employee handbook went, or else I'd be consulting it right now. Is there an official way to iron out a problem with another partner before taking it up with the store manager? I have confided in a shift about the situation who offered to mediate for us if that's what I wanted to do. Is this a viable option that won't get any of us in trouble? Is there any documentation that needs to occur? I don't want to be BFFs with the other partner; I just want to be more comfortable when I'm working. Thanks!

Here's what you do, you look this person straight in the eye and say "after work, parking lot. Bring a baggie for your teeth".
^That's wicked sick. I'm using that one at work tomorrow.
Problem solving steps:
-Use your words.
-Use your fists.
-Medicate with alcohol.
-Become best friends.
Bahaha! I'll try the talking part first & go from there. Thanks all!
I like the baggie idea myself.
@marble Just be as reasonable and professional as possible. If it can't be fully resolved, you know, the best decision is what you said at the end- you just want to be comfortable at work. So basically it's just asking the other party to remain professional on the promise and assurance that you'll do the same. (plus if neither of you are really talking that much, that leaves more time for cleaning YAY)
