I’ve had conflicts with my boss at Walgreens when I was externing, but never any major ones.

He got irritated & I knew it wasn’t my fault that no one informed me what was required. I just reasoned with him & apologized that I wasn’t informed & I would be more responsible & come in when I’m supposed to & such.
