I absolutely love being a cook. I work with my boyfriend, which I love even more we are the best team even when we are cranky. He loves to cook also we have worked at this restaurant/bar for over a year. When we first started they needed the help really bad I had no restaurant experience just working at Subway but that’s all I needed I am a very quick learner. And now I have got the hang of it I absolutely love the job we make everything homemade. Being a cook and having to clean up is a hard job now having asshole coworkers is an even harder job that is the only reason that neither of us wants to work there FYI they don’t want us there either but we continue to work because we have a family and bills to pay. We have gone through two bosses, one was the owner’s daughter. We are on our third boss everything seemed great. Everything that my boyfriend has suggested to change in the past he has also changed just because it’s common sense the previous bosses wouldn’t change anything that he had suggested but then would steal his ideas and make it their own. Time goes on we continue to work and continue to get treated like shit by the owner, wait staff and most of the cooks. The new boss is a single male who has much experience in culinary but not much in common respect or courtesy. He is trying to screw every waitress bartender and cook that works in the establishment including myself who has a boyfriend that I work with that he also knows. So the boss decides that he wants to get drunk on at least two occasions that I know of. He gets drunk and does not show up for work for at least an hour and then comes to work hungover and does not do a fucking thing, prep for the day or anything. Great then we get slammed The boss didn’t do any prep we are backed with tickets with nothing done running around trying to provide for the customers efficiently with good food. Life goes on another day down another dollar in the bank okay so now we continue to work there my boyfriend is more outspoken than I am so no one seems to like his outspoken ass and they treat him like shit he has been nice he has been rude doesn’t matter what he does they are still assholes. I never work at noon I always work anywhere from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. so I get scheduled for a noon shift And the night before I had stayed up about 4:00 in the morning folding laundry trying to get my house clean cuz I know I have to work the next week and won’t have time to do anything so I wake up at 12:30 late for work by the time I got up and if I would have left I would have been an hour and a half late for work but at least I wouldn’t have been hungover and would have done my job. I get suspended for a week because I slept in now mind you I have to tell my 10-year-old son that this is what happens when you’re not responsible and I have to own up and take responsibility for not showing up for work and that’s what happens when you don’t do things right to set good example for my son. I tell my son what had happened the boss had done the same thing and how it wasn’t fair but then to explain to my son you know life isn’t fair He’s the boss and that’s just how things go but I shouldn’t have to tell my son this is how things go two wrongs don’t make it right it does not make it right for him to do the same thing but then to reprimand me or my boyfriend they clearly just don’t want us to work there. But I will continue working until I find a job elsewhere. And people like him and the other ones that work there make it hard to like most people because of pure insensibility.
