This is a question Being told off as an adult

When was the last time you were properly told off? You know: treated as an errant child rather than the sophisticated adult you are.

The sort of thing that dredges up an involuntary teenage mumble of "Sorry, Miss" whilst you stare at the ground.

Go on, tell us what childish thing you were up to when you got caught.

Oh, and can we have more than one-line answers this time? Cheers!

fast food manager - lesson one
I've worked in fast food a long long time, I quite like it and I'm pretty good at it.
I've learnt loads from my past managers, theres 2 small phrases i've found that a) shuts people up real quick and b) makes them feel like a raging dickhead.... I know because they were used on me.
First one - when dealing with someone who is unhappy with a decision you've made and is getting a little excited - "Did you just raise your voice to me?"

The second - when someone starts to bitch and badmouth anyone - "That's funny, i have nothing but respect for that person"

I'm the boss these days but in the past when i was a newbie pizza girl, its these two small phrases that made me feel about as big as a lego man. Which worked because being yelled at by a manager thats 2 years older than you just makes me laugh.
