Today, I got a write-up because I told my boss that it was impossible to have pies, which have a bake time of 1 hour, ready for a customer who wanted them in the next 15 to 20 minutes. Then, when the customer got there and the pies were still in the oven, I got a second write-up for wasting time. FML

Isn’t it common sense?

If someone with pie experience says it takes a hour to bake, why wouldn’t you believe them? That doesn’t sound like an unreasonable time span.

I'd love to see the pee test to prove how baked!

Doesn't your boss know the basics of his own establishment? How can he write you up for stating a basic fact? Or TRYING to comply with her request.

She needs to pick a ready made pie you can offer, or go to another store.

Or turn the heat WAAAAAAYYYY up and burn the pie on pur -- I mean shorten the baking time!

If the job is worth keeping, I agree with others... fight it. If not, get a better job where the rules make sense ... not where they are made up for the boss’ convenience or mood swings.

Normally I would agree with you. But a job with a manager this stupid is not worth keeping. Unless it is the only job within an hour of home, and there are absolutely no other jobs at all. This is a job to quit. Before the manager writes OP up for starting their shift at the start of their shift or something equally ridiculous.

If there's an HR department, go there. But it sounds like you work for something smaller so I'd say the him to do his impossible shit himself and go with for the competition.
