Person Management

Someone I know works in a restaurant. Hearing stories about their workplace is a fascinating observation of how people work and interact with each other. On the whole, their boss is good - they're enthusiastic, encouraging and at first, created a positive working environment. However, it could be said that they hide from their responsibilities [...]
