That's on the manager for trusting someone else's word without checking. Sorry you have to deal with the backlash of your coworker's ineptitude as a result OP.

Even if your manager ordered half of what she did, that would still be way too many menus for any one restaurant..

It really depends on the restaurant and the menus. In many places, kids' menus are use-once disposables that have drawing/marking games on them and sometimes double as placemats (these probably weren't placemats, as they needed to be folded). A large, popular "family" restaurant could go through 12,000 kids' menus in a matter of months.

It also makes no sense that they would just trust an average employee out of the blue. I would think they should have people keeping inventory of what they have after every day, so that they know when they need to order more.

I'm guessing this dumbass coworker plays dumb a lot to get out of working. You'll be in for a miserable time until they a) quit or b) get fired for some bigger FUBAR.

It's not on the manager to double check things like this. What is on the manager, though, is to hire competent employees. It is employee's job to know what they're doing.

Managers take that responsibility when they become managers. Whether they are directly or indirectly responsible does not matter, it's that it's their job in the end to double check stock (which seems to have been easy to do).

Distance yourself from this person, least you be drawn into the depths of idiocy which you may never able to escape, forever trapped in an endless cycle of mediocrity, your friends will abandon you, your family disown you. Forever trapped. Or just tell him/her to check properly next time and move on.

It's all good, as long as they are done on their time (paid) and not in your own time.

Except for the possibly hundreds of dollars that would cost the business, since they already printed off the bastards. Keeping them is the best thing.
