I just let it go because maybe he was having a bad day but as I started to order it seemed like the cashier was trying to overcharge me. I ordered two of the 5 dollar pizzas but the cashier kept charging me for extra things and when I told him about it he got angry and started yelling at me. I was being as calm as possible to tell him what he did wrong but he just kept yelling. Finally one of his co-workers came to help the cashier but he still had an attitude the whole time. As I was walking out he was talking trash and being very impolite.

Instead of addressing this issue she decided to avoid the confrontation and shoulder the responsibility of retesting everyone. In my opinion passive communication, although avoid confrontation is not effective because Brigit is left unaware she completed the tests inaccurately. This is an injustice to her and the students because she will continue to make this mistake unknowingly. The more effective way to handle this in my opinion would be to ask Brigit to demonstrate how to complete the test and show her what she is doing incorrectly.
