    What would you do? I do a dead-end,

    sh*t job. The pay is a joke. The manager and her assistant are a nightmare and when they talk to you about a shortcoming, it is as if you just swore at their mother and they are arguing with you. They are very disrespectful and abrupt. Someone indeed walked out right there and...

    Everything in my job is on a need to know basis.
