Manager's pets

It is very obvious when someone is the manager's pet - that person certainly does not get tired much. I've always wondered how it's possible that managers generally always protect such employees, who are not hard workers? What is the logic behind that?
I tried for a long time to get my manager to respect me as every employee should be respected, I gave 150 percent of myself, but that didn't mean anything.

They are 2 great examples of managers pets. One was a managers pet. The guy was a corporate pet.

My manager who is g-y went on play dates with the f-g hag visual manager assistant who had a bad relationship with her husband.she would run into the bathroom crying at times. Got her arms tattooed when her husband ignored her. I’m tattooed by artistic expression. By the way had a former coworker who became a tattoo artist. Went on ink master. Watched the show. He had crying fits on there. Get a life girl!!!

Fascinating input from the Loss Prevention Manager. This 'pet' syndrome was the modus operandi at Nordstrom. Every manager, even one that I truly respected, made their team blatantly aware of who the favorite employees were. One more way to break your spirit?

I’ve been a regional loss prevention manager for another retailer for 19 years, typically when we see managers “pets” at stores it’s because of a se-ual relationship between the manager and employee, internal theft between the two, the store manager has hired a friend or relative, or the manager is afraid that particular employee has “dirt” on them. It is a RED FLAG if a store manager is using this tactic in the workplace be it retail or in another business, and it’s always bad for business!

My VP had a pet, and they were doing more business in parking lot and hotels than in office. VP has a new pet, old pet got fired eventually. Seems the norm!

Worked with a few like that. With side hustling. On their Instagram accounts while on the click. Just saying...

My department had a director and 3 managers, and lots of days they didn't even show up for work! People complained and HR stated that their Director only required 50% office time... wtf? I think some of them used the extra time for their side businesses! One woman actually did real estate training while she was supposed to be working...

Exactly my old manager and his pets goofed around most of the day! I would always call him out. He eventually fired me.
