1) A person who thinks they are in power but who is actually a pawn

2) A person who is told they are in charge but who has to lick the boss's ass and do all the bullshit work for a fraction of his pay
1) "She's walking around like a queen now that she's the assistant manager. The fact is; she doesn't know how to make any rules! Maybe her first rule should be to change her fucking underwear so I can't smell toxic queef every time she walks past me!"

2) "Sally, you'll be in charge while I'm not around. If there's a complaint from one of the drunk customer's, you'll deal with it. When someone pukes in the washroom; you'll have to clean it up. When everyone goes home; you'll stick around to close. If you need me, you can try my cell. Your pay will have to stay the same...but you'll be the assistant manager....congratulations!"

a junior assistant manager breakdown is when either a burger king or hardees wannabe manager attempts to stop you from getting a soda when you ordered a water. it sometimes is triggered by a junior assistant manager freakout, and is usually accompanied by empty threats from the middle-aged jr assistant management and bouts of laughter from myself.
some lady: hey! dump it out and get a water!
me: it was an accident
some lady: you didn't pay for that!!!
me: it's okay, relax and try not to have a junior assistant manager breakdown
