|Kind of weirdly specific question.

I'm starting to apply for jobs again, and I know that in interviews I'm likely to get questions about why I left my previous jobs. I have excellent reasons for leaving two of the three major jobs I've had, (going back to college for one, moving with family for another,) but I left the other one with a sour taste in my mouth. Essentially, the owners told the managers and supervisors we couldn't hang out with our underlings, and around the same time the assistant manager left, and as head supervisor, I was essentially given his job without a promotion in title or pay, or a reduction in my supervisor duties. Then, the first week of November, we were told none of the supervisors would be getting any time of the week of Thanksgiving. I'd requested the Tuesday/Wednesday of Thanksgiving week off in July, and it had been approved, then they changed their minds in November, when I'd already purchased tickets, and that was frankly the final straw for me. Is there any way to say all that in a succinct, positive way?|
ETA: I went from a restaurant job to an office one, if there's any sort of way to like... blame it on my wanting a change of scenery without sounding flighty.
