Andrea was supposed to take out the garbage, as per her requirements. She didnt do it) When asked what happened she said she took out 'some' of it ))). So then she was asked to take the rest, and that I (the owner) said I would help her finish.
She said no, that it was 'her day off'
Honestly, why debate someone to finish the job that was supposed to be done the day before. It takes 2 minutes to finish, so the second time I just told her directly to get it done. My tone was no-nonsense direct. Fair enough.
Then I helped her take the trash out, and my manager got a message complaining about my tone.
In the interest of smoothing things over, I went and apologized but I guess I didnt apologize correctly (fml :'D) - I guess it's hard to please people who "demand an apology" for being first asked then having to be told to finish their job. :'D Ah well..
My manager got another message complaining about my apology and also complaining about 'men' in general.
Bottom line is, it's too bad this went the way it did. Andrea's a nice person and we wish her a happy, healthy and bright future.
We havent had problems with volunteers before or since.)) We almost always manage to get staff that vibe with us and the fun crowd at Jimmy Jumps.
So if you are a cool, relaxed happy human come join the team!
(Please, just take the garbage out :'D)
