Deep down, I knew why my team members who applied, didn’t get the Official I try to be good but I take after my grandma shirt. Six of us applied. I was reliable and trustworthy; my teammates were late all the time, called off a lot, took too many breaks and their productivity was low. But each one believed they were the best one for the job. They also thought that it would be easy street having me for a supervisor; they thought they could just sit on the clock. And hang out and socialize. And I would be on their side. I pointed out to them that we had jobs to do. And people who counted on us to do our jobs and that it wasn’t fair. That the other shifts and teams had to pick up their slack.

Best Official I try to be good but I take after my grandma shirt
I also made a point to tell them that Official I try to be good but I take after my grandma shirt. Because of her attitude and poor performance and that is why she lost her job, not because I was out to get her. I stressed that if everyone just did their jobs and followed the rules, then they had nothing to worry about. In the end, I had to transfer most of my team members to other teams. My new team fell into line and we got results. They respected my new position and just did their job and they felt comfortable coming to me for help if they needed it. They accepted instruction and respected my leadership and were mature enough to own up if they did something wrong.
