Which happens more often:

2) Be pointed to by a parent telling their child, "If you don't knock it off, you'll end up throwing your life away by working here like (employee) is". This takes on many other variants..."that's what happens when you drop out of high school", "if you want to know about poor life choices, ask (employee) since obviously they know", and so on.
Ugh. Reminded me of one of the more condescending things to ever happen to me. When I worked at Donato's on campus, I delivered three pizzas to this one house and a guy who looked like a prof. It was $30 or so. He gave me a dollar coin and said, "work hard and improve yourself."
