Talking to a Manager

JAMES

James has some problems at work. He works a second job at night, so sometimes he gets up late. When he gets to work, someone is parked in his parking spot. He teaches all day, and then when it is time for lunch, he sees that someone stole his lunch [potatoes]. He tries to make copies for the students, but the copy machine keeps breaking. The other workers are angry because they think he broke the machine. Finally, he is ready to go home. Then his supervisor asks him to stay late because another worker is sick.


James is exhausted and frustrated! He wants to talk to his manager. What should he say?

  2. He should tell his manager that she needs to fix the copy machine. He should put a note on the refrigerator that says, "Hey! Don't steal my potatoes!" He should stop working so much, so he can sleep at night. Then he won't be late in the morning.

  19. I think that teacher James should say to his manager that he is in the best disposition to cooperate but he needs to rest, then he can explain all the things that happened to him throughout the day, so, maybe his manager will be a reasonable person and give him a break or let him go to his home. I am sure that at the next day, all will be better. And for his lunch, he should bring a salad or something that don't be necessary refrigerate, so he can keep the food in his desk.

  20. He may have to talk with his manager, about all his matters,but he needs to take care of his lunch,if the parking lot does not have a sign that anyone could use,of course someelse will use his parking lot.About the copy machine he ought to let her know the copy machine needs to be repair. He needs to eat more potatoes and nothing wrong happen to him. Have a lucky day teacher James.

  21. I think that you should ask all the student.Who stole your potatoes?And you have ot tell Your maneger a bout the true story that you did it and you met it and discrebt to him what's happent with you?And one more any body knew you're like the potatoes and you did toll all the student in Neighbor hood house.I think that maybe not the student in Neighber hood house.May be have the diferent person who stole your potatoes.May be they want to make you have a trouble with that thing.SO i think that you can to take all of that story to tell your maneger.For me i think that your maneger understanded and one more thing all the student in Neighberhood house school like you so much.I think that your maneger can't to fire you.

    If the machine is it broken you might be able to fix the machine or tell your manager as soon as possible. Please try not to be engry.
