My manager is so annoying and controlling at work. I get offended and upset.
As soon the shift is finished and we are out shes such a warm and friendly person. I cant decide wether to like her or not :) Is this normal?

Normal? What's normal with us humans! When your manager is at work she assumes the mantle of authority, when off work she returns to her pleasant self. But we all do it don't we, to some extent. In Greek tragedy only one actor takes on many roles, but each time comes on the stage wearing a different mask. We wear different masks to suit the situation we are in or to whom we are speaking. We hardly ever show our real selves. Also it may be a case of what the psychologist Adler called 'the will to power' He suggested that the driving force in many humans is to have power over others. You can see this in everyday in life. You only have to look at politics. :(:(:(
