Manager. Just a word for overworked, underpaid, under appreciated. Should have never quit school. Should have been more than a department store manager. Too late now.

You call him your manager, but you have never actually seen him.
He is a stranger, a bystander, an observer. He is your faceless puppeteer.
He is pulling all the strings, and you are powerless.

The stereotypical boss, you know, get on with ok, who is a bit overweight, sends you on arduous tasks

I don’t really like managing. I like doing. Managers tend to sit back with a lot of paperwork in small offices with desks and phones. – That’s not my idea of living.
If people need someone to get them organized I can do that. I can “manage” people, but I wouldn’t want that to be my every day job.
I’ve often annoyed “higher ups” by turning down managerial positions and staying at my lower paying job. Their confusion about my not wanting the “honor” of their promotion – or the pay increase – and their lack of understanding as to why anyone would like the job I currently had, told me a lot about how much they’d lost touch with their clients and the mission of their companies. They no longer dealt with either. They dealt with paper.

I am a good money manager, as long as I take the time to keep track of all of the receipts and the unchecked spending. I pray that my money managing skills will carry me through this family weekend. It should be fun, barring any unforeseen accidents or overspending. Wish me luck.

“These reports are due by close of business today,” she said as she dropped a stack of papers on my desk with a thud. I sighed and picked up the first sheet. It was going to be a long day…

my manager sucks he is so mean that one time he came into the office and said, “hey lets all try and ACTUALLY work today hmm” I hated him so much for this so I decided to kill him. And I did, now I am serving 40 years…

He sounded low when I called. the voice was slower and lower, and less distinct.
“You don’t sound so happy today. What’s up?”
“My manager is shifting to another department. I’m not very confident of the new guy.”

the person that runs a business. a person that can show people what to do and to take care of their customers. a person that will take the blame for their employees. a person that cares about their job. gets paid more than sales associate. sits in an office. no uniform

the person who works with your proffesional life :) and who is your friend.

He stared at me sternly, clipboard in hand, scowl on face. I felt like a shadow of myself. His suit was stiff with superiority, his features sly with a smirk.

being a manager is very hard. You have to coordinate everything, check up on all the workers, and help customers. But being named ‘manager’, fills yourself with fulfillment satisfaction, which is the most important thing a human needs.

Sometimes at work we get different managers, they range from young females to old males and everything in between. They are generally nice and understanding but sometimes they can get stressed and they’ll do something to blame a worker on why things are not running smoothly.

the maneger took the book and made a paper airplane whith one of the pages he threw it to one of his workers in the other cubical.

he walked into the door with his chin miles above all of us. he looked down all of us in our tacky plastic aprons and grease-stained shirts. we looked him back with a little less dignity. he walked back into the safety of his room.

The manager was weird and he worked for five days. His name was Mr. Krabbs. He told the employees to work for 24 hours every day. And one guy hated his job and wanted to die. and another person loved his job and got crazy obsessed with his job.
By kell on 08.04.2011
Manager is a boring word really; it just makes me think of work and that’s not the greatest thing to think about after work if you can help it. Luckily, my manager is pretty cool. We have a bit of a laugh every now and again. But he hates it when I’m right!
By SophieKate URL on 08.04.2011
he was their leader. so why wouldn’t he know what to do. they all sat staring at him. he stood, overwhelmed with shock at this tragic event. confused with no idea of how to pull them through.
By Corinne URL on 08.04.2011
The manager smiled as he looked out over the restaraunt. His employees hadn’t showed up, but that was ok; after all, none of his customers had either. Just then. the bell over the door jingled and in walked a party of two. They wanted to be seated, however, at a table for six because they had some friends who were going to be joining them.

Micro. Macro. Manage.
Make sure that as you fill their drinks, you know where the lemons are, and you should probably be able to fill two drinks at a time.
Oh you want to play frisbee? Well do you know how to throw a frisbee? This is the best way to catch a frisbee. Don’t let the dog get it!
Micro. Micro. Micro Manage.

I already did manager; why do I have it again? I guess I’ll come up with something else then. I’ve never had a manager; I’m seventeen and I’ve only had one job…well, I suppose I had a manager there, but it was largely my family who worked in this place, so I really don’t feel like that counts. But anyway, my friends and family seem to have good managers these days; there have been a few in the past that have been bad, but still.
The manager ran through the store, screaming and throwing candles and vases. When he passed a customer, he jumped up and down screaming, “COME ON EVERYBODY, HAVE SOME FUN!”
Then he stripped off all his clothes and ran out of the store, rubber duck boxers flapping in the breeze.

Managers run stores helping business’s run smoothly. Every business needs a manager. Managers control most of what happens within a store. They are like a boss but just of one store. To become a manager you must of worked in the business for a while.

Everything in this store is disgusting. Not in a way that you’d notice at first; perhaps if you jsut passed fleetingly, or allowed your eyes to just glaze over the products in the window, nothing would seem amiss. But I assure you, dear customer, none of these items are things you’d want inside your home.

Someone who is in charge of a group of individuals to offer guidance to accomplish a task. And to take control in time of trouble.
By Amnita on 08.04.2011
The manager of all things is chaos. It makes sense, right? No? Well think about it – do you like being told what to do? Often we take advice from those who advise us the least. And most of all, when we lay our plans, the factor that most controls that outcome are the factors that we control the least. Chaos is the manager of all things.

If I get this word again I swear down I will smack someone six ways from. Managers manager, right. Get it, got it, fan-fucking-tastic. Sorry for the language, I am obviously not a very good manager of my emotions or language.

Managers can be the strength or failure of a company. Strong management is important in any industry, however having a balance between managing and coaching is important to having your employee’s reach their potential.
By Ashley on 08.04.2011
She was the manager of my life. She called the shots. She told me what to do and how to do it, and I just did. It’s a scary thing giving your life over completely and totally to a person. Trusting them to lead you to happiness. Trusting them to not hurt you or purposely send you to your demise. Yes, she was my manager. The greatest woman in my life.
By Mar URL on 08.04.2011
Managers are good in some ways and bad in others. In some ways they are good because they keep order and tell you what to do. In a bad way they are control; freaks but that’s a kind of good thing, only I find that incredibly annoying. I don’t like control freaks which is a bit rubbish because I’m one.
By thezanygiraffe on 08.04.2011
Manager? Someone who manages. If you can go through hell and manage to come out smiling, you’re a pretty good manager. If you can manage to finish your work on time and not procrastinate, that’s another quality of a good manager.

So my manager called me into his office today asking whether or not I checked for chewed gum under the tables at end of the previous night. I said I had. I lied. It’s not like he’ll find out, he’s too lazy to check for himself.
By jage on 08.04.2011
A Manager IS SOMEONE THAT HAS MORE TO LOOk out for then just themselves. They have their own job duties as well as looking over and helping and magaing everyone around them.
A manager is a very important job in a active store. If the manager is not doing their job well then all chains of the store will fall apart.

i was a manager at a grocery store when i turned 16. i worked there for the rest of highschool and while i was there, i hated it but when i left i realized that that was the best job i was going to get, it taught me how to talk to people, and how to stand up to people
