Location: Starbucks/Aventura, FL
For lunch I decided to head up to Starbucks since a Danish was all my wallet could afford today. At the counter was Gaston who happened to be the store’s manager.
“Stress. Just recently within the last week, I had two people quit and one got fired. Most recently today I got word that one of my employee’s grandpa had died. So we’re short staffed right now. Essentially it’s a lot on me as the store manager because I have to figure out how to level the playing field. So yeah…stress.”
Gaston went on to tell me that a manager’s life can be very stressful, but you gotta stay positive. I agree! Don’t you?
