Yep u r right, some of my best friends are/were McDee's management.
Indeed in my experience I would say that most managers are decent
people trying to earn a living in a crappy job. Whoever in my time
at McD's (5 long years) I didcome into contact with managers who
were power-tripping, bullying, cynical and in one case either
suffering from a personality disorder or evil. This individual
still works for McD's - has even been promoted- despite the fact
that everyone, even senior managment, know that the guy is unstable.
If you have never worked with someone such as this it is hard to
explain the kind of stress it can cause, even in your life outside
work. My main prob with McD's is the fact that it fosters an
environment where people like him can not only hold down a job
but can thrive by making employees lives miserable.
You sound like a decent guy and maybe the culture in your area is
way different to the one in my area but I would be very suprised
if you haven't come across some unpleasent managers in your time.
