The Question Club
I work at a deli counter at a gorcery store. I only just started about a month ago. There is a lady who work there, she's about my mother's age, who is always correcting me. No just, 'Hey, you're doing tha wrong' or 'There's a better way to do that'. No, if I'm doing somthing wrong, or if I ask her a question about how to do somthing, she physicly PUSHES me out fo the way and takes over, or pushes my hadns out of the way.|
I thought she had some seniority, the way she acted. I figured she was jsut set in her ways, and really knew more than me about it. But it turns out she has been working there only a week more than me. I also have previous experience with food services, especialy with the slicer machines.
SO! Here's my question:
Nest time she tries to correct me, or tells me I'm doing somthing wrong, when I'm really just not doing it HER way, should I:
a) Take off my hat, read my name tag very carefuly, and say 'Huh, thought so. My name is Tricia, not Sue. Go fig'
b) Put out my hand, grab hers, shake it, and say 'Hi, we must not have met. My name is Tricia. I'm 20 years old, not a child by ANY cultural standards. I was hired to work in the deli because I've had experience in a mass production kitchen before. One of my daily responsibilities was taking apart nad cleaning the meat slicer. Good to meet you, LET'S BE FRIENDS!'
