The restaurant manager where i work, loves to jump my authority in the kitchen. He loves to walk in without asking and helps himself to prep. He also O.k's extra staff meals without asking the kitchen at anytime and over the owners authority. So what do?, without creating a impasse or causing too much tension between the floor and the kitchen. Heheh, this reminds me of a conundrum: "Gees i would hate to be born stupid, but then again, if i was, would i know better?."
