Sometimes as a sales assistant. You would be working hard tidying the store and then often would see Managers gassing and not doing anything. But then as soon as they see something one the floor or something that's out of place they call you to do it even though you are in the middle of doing something else. They wouldn't think to do it themselves even if it was right by their feet. They are paid considerable more and can't even pick up a hanger off the floor. They would prefer you to stop doing what you are doing and and pick it up. Even if you were with a customer. Not all managers were like this. But a couple are like this and sadly think they are too good to do a basic task.
