How would you interpret this phrase in the context?
How would you interpret this phrase “My shift manager was cool by me” in the third sentence?
I would think it means the shift manager was kind to him. What do you think?
PS: the excerpt is taken from “Kneller’s Happy Campers” written by an Israeli author, Etgar Keret. And I’m reading an English translation.
Two days after I killed myself I found a job here at some pizza joint. It’s called Kamikaze, and it’s part of a chain. My shift manager was cool by me, and helped me find a place to live, with this German guy who works at the same store. The job’s no big deal, but it’ll do for a while.
