Medical Screening Hell: "You must be her boss"

From crippled_bastard, Tales From Retail:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, I was a young soldier. I loved the army. I wanted to make it my career. I did it for a long time.

I got injured. I couldn't do the job I was trained on anymore. So I got out and looked for other jobs.

I do medical screening now. I'm older than everyone but two people in the entire building.

On to the story.

My immediate supervisor is 24. She's fairly young.

A person didn't like her vitals and insisted that my boss did them wrong. There was absolutely no way her blood pressure was that high. You don't know what you're doing.

That kind of horse shit.

I came back from a break and this woman points at me and goes "I want your boss doing it. Him! You! Show her how to do this".

I said, "Lady, she's my boss"

She goes "I don't have time for this. Read my vitals and deal with her after".

My boss kind of smiled and I took her seat. I ran vitals again, and got the same result. I said "Well, I got the same result. Unfortunately, I need a supervisor to sign off on a correction(Sort of true, but not really). Let me get my boss".

I stood up, and turned to her and said, "Hey, when you get a chance, can you confirm these corrections?"

She said "Yeah, I'm going to take a 10 minute break, but as soon as I get back, I'll knock that out."

"Sorry, Ma'am. I can't overrule my boss.
