I once had a newbie manager that had been in food management before. I had to train him to open. After all the food was prepared and heating, I told him to clean the lobby and get the dining room ready (wipe tables, stock silverware, make sure each table had salt/pepper).
Much of which he told me, "Yeah yeah, I know what to do."
I soon found him sitting at a table staring into space hands neatly folded in front of him.
I also had a store manager to train (I was a co-manager from another store) who had came from Catherine's Women's into our store. We, like most companies, want you to do things our way, not your way.
I was discussing our floor moves and map sets when she snapped at everything told her as, "That's what I did at my last job."
After about two hours of "That's what I did at my last job," I took a break and ate a Cinnabon. I decided I was thoroughly sick of trying to help her with her attitude and pretended that something came up at my store, and I 'had to leave.'
I took the rest of the day off. Apparently her last-job-ways got her written up more than once and she pretended that something came up and left her keys on the desk, never to be seen again.
