Today, I went to my retail job to buy some clothing. As soon as I walked through the doors, my manager yelled at me for not being in appropriate work clothes. I tried to explain that I was off the clock but he was having none of it. I got written up. FML

Yeah, I had a manager like that too. One day I had to work straight after school so I planned to change into work clothes when I got there. Manager yelled at me as soon as I walked in the door for not wearing appropriate clothing. Thankfully she did finally listen when I told her I was going to change, but obviously she never apologized. I agree with the brick idea, might knock them into being decent people, you never know :P

Just because you don't sign the write up does not mean it will not go on your file. My coworker and I got written up for smoking once and he refused to sign it, but it still went on his file.

I agree with 10, I'd probably write "IT'S MY DAY OFF" in big bold letters and go to HR.

Unfortunately you can. I had a problem with my manager at my last job and took it to HR. Since he'd been with the company for decades and had a great reputation (while I had only been working there for six months), she wouldn't believe he was hostile towards me and making the kitchen unsafe for me to work in. I left that job real fast.
