“You there! Let me show you what you did wrong last night.”
What a way to start a conversation. As you sheepishly approached your boss, you didn’t know why you were surprised by the rudeness.

Once you were by your manager’s side, he pointed to the shelf.
“See the problem?” he asked, tapping his foot, his arms folded.
