My latest rant and an e-mail to share

You know I really loathe and despise when people come into my resturant and claim that they have allergies to something random like onions. Please! You honestly think that were dumb enough to buy into that bullshit, a simple no onions please would suffice. Yes of course there are people in the world whom I am sure allergic to onions and such but NOT that many people!

When your throwing your garbage out, get a fucking clue! If it's over flowing, move your lazy ass onto the second one located a mere half foot away from the other one. When i'm changing the garbage don't fucking line up behind me to wait, or attempt to throw your garbage in there when there isn't a bag in it either. Yes one of the hydro guys were about to do that, these people are supposed to take care of my hydro? Really not comforting, not in the least! Also jackass don't waltz in my resturant 5 minutes before closing an expect to sit there and fucking eat! Yes my french sucks ass and i'm sorry but I do try. However don't sit there and chew my ass out for it!

So movnig along, I got this great e-mail today and feel the need to pass it on because it is a gem!

it's been a while...

And it will continue to be a while because I am without a PC dammit! I am also boderline poor at the moment, so I won't be able to up-date for a while. I am going home for christmas though so I can use my mom's computer thank God!

Anyway in the meantime, happy holidays to all of my readers regardless of how you celebrate it!

Get smashed, enjoy the snow and irritate your friends by buying them sex toys ;)


Bring on the hatered!

So Sunday I have a "disscussion" with my boss...

He wants me to do more!!!!! WTF, I DO EVERYTHING as it is, do you want my left fucking arm too while your at it??????

So they finally discovered that I know how to cook, so they want me up front at all times doing the set-ups and what not. I was told by 2 different managers not to do any cleaning IE: the floors and things because we hired a new guy to do all that stuff! So what do I do? Don't do it lol.

What happens because of that? He calls one of the owners and cry's to him and wanted me fired because I didn't clean the floor when I was TOLD NOT TO! Seriously what the hell is wrong with people! Granted we have some serious cultural differences which are creating obvious conflicts. He keeps fishing for excuses to get me to do more work without actually getting paid more yet he dangles the proverbial money carott in my face ALL the time. I ain't buying into that BS, no thanks jackass, get a clue then we'll talk some!

So after I found that out I started looking for a new job, spent 1/2 hour on the phone with the exec Chef of a better paying resturant who's looking for head cooks and he seems impressed with me, he actually said as much. So Monday I go for an interivew, keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!

Also one of the chef's at work has taken/hitting on me too far! Can we say sexual harrassment. He grabbed my ass, finds ANY excuse to rub up against me and has been calling me honey all day.

Good, I can go after them when I quit! My PC has the speed of a snail these days so I can't up-date much until I install more ram.


Random rant...

I hate people I really do, the food service industry blows and totally sucks ass! I asked for my raise and so far haven't gotten it yet of course...

Their excuse: we can't afford to give you more money. So that being said you get what you pay for, nothing more, nothing less. You want me to work harder for my shitty money you fucks? Are you out of your GODAMMNED MIND!

No, so everyone someone asks me to do something I just reply with no, I don't get paid enough and walk away. You want me to stay late because you have no one to close, I'll laugh in your face like I did last Friday! If anything, at least THAT behaviour is a legitaimate reason for getting fired. Keeping a blog not so much...

People are senseless and total pigs as well. Yes please don't take the extra 2 seconds to walk over to the other garbage because your too fucking lazy! Just keep cramming more shit in there, we like that...{insert heavily loaded sarcasam here}

Yes please do leave your shit all over the floor and the tables because your obviously a slob that doesn't know how to clean up after themselves. Do you live in a trailor?

No class...

Next person that bitches at me for being english and not speaking french: NEWSFLASH TWAT IT'S THE WEST ISLAND AND THIS IS CANADA LEARN SOME FUCKING ENGLISH YOU SEPEREIST WHORE!

Whew, I feel better now! If I was so tired from my crappy sweat shop wages resturant job i'd up-date as soon as I got home from work.


Feel like eating out tonight? READ this FIRST!

The next time you're out eating at a resturant, look at your server. Do you think they are really happy to be doing that job? The answer is no, they are not, but it's what we do, and we do it for the money so please help them out. Its a tougher job than you think and you should pay them accordingly!

There are SO many people out there flooding the restaurants w/o any knowledge of how to tip. Here is a short guide for the general public to follow. Feel free to print out and store in your wallet and/or purse.

1. CHILDREN "THE LITTLE DEVILS": If you have children, DO NOT let them, open and dump anything on the table (ie; salt, sugar, etc). IF YOU DO, you must leave an extra $5 for the server to clean up YOUR CHILD'S mess & to restock the now unusable wasted items. We are neither their babysitter nor their parent. The least you can do is pay us for the extra work. Also make sure you control your kids and don't let them scream or run around the restraunt. It's very distracting not to mention dangerous if they get ran over by a server with hot food in their hands.

2. "THE CAMPERS": If you feel the necessity to stay for longer than 15 minutes after you pay, its an extra $3 every 30 minutes. We make our money from the tables. If you are in one and we can't seat it, we don't make money.

3. COMPLIMENTS: Telling a server they are the best server they've ever had is not a tip. If we are good, let us know by leaving us more money. We cant pay our bills on compliments. Its not that we don't appreciate the praise, its just that if you say that and then leave 10% it's an insult.

4. THE SALVATION PAMPHLETS: Prayer cards and any other religious pamphlet is NOT a tip. It is insulting that you assume we are w/o religion and must save us. Again, like ..3, we cant pay bills w/prayer cards. We'd go to church on Sundays if it wasn't mandatory to work on Sundays because EVERYONE who goes to church follows it by eating out.

5. TIPPING: It is not 1960. Cost of living has gone up dramatically since then. 18% is the MINIMUM amount of what you should be tipping your servers. Just look at the tax line and multiply by 2-3, this gives you your minimum tip amount. Remember, our companies pay us minimum wage (minumum wage for servers is $6.75 in CA, $3.13 in FL, $3.09 in IA, $2.13 in TX) And we are taxed on 10 percent of your meal automatically anyway. So if your meal is $100 and you leave $10 and we tip out $4-5 to the busser, bartender, and whoever else then we pay tax on 10 dollars and we make $5. It seems small but it adds up. How many times do you eat out per week and do this?

6. THE COMPLAINERS: If you get a discount because of your food was prepared wrong or something, do not take it out of our tip. We didn't cook it. The cooks get paid hourly regardless if the food sucks. However, we only make what you give us.

7. THE FREE STUFF: If you happen to get anything for free and you did not have a problem with your dining experience, most of the time it is because the server thinks you will realize that they are giving it to you for free. There should be extra tip thanking the server for the free item. They could get in a lot of trouble giving away free stuff. You should give them hazard pay for it.

8. THE LATE ONES: If you come into the restraunt 10 mins before closing or any time near closing hurry up and order your food and get out. Closed means closed, not social hour. It is so rude to sit there and take your sweet ass time. We can't leave until you leave because we have to do sidework and clean the table you are sitting at. We don't want to stand there waiting for you for an extra hour just because you don't want to go home. We recommend 24 hour establishments such as Dennys if you wish to sit into the wee hours of the night.

9. THE TABLE HOGGERS: If you only come in for coffee or a dessert, to do paper work, or to have a meeting, don't sit there taking up our booths for hours. We are not Starbucks or a hotel restraunt. If you want to sit for hours, go there or else you better leave a good tip for us and camping fee included.

10. THE GREET: When we come up to the table to greet you and we ask how you are doing please let us know. We honestly want to know how you are doing. If you are in a bad mood we want to know that from the beginning. A confused stare or complete silence does not suffice as a reply to "How are you doing?". Also most of us are REQUIRED to say certain things during the greeting, so please don't interrupt our greeting and say "I want coffee", "Can we get some bread?", or "What are the soups?"

11. THOSE DAMN CELL PHONES: Don't ever talk on your cell phone in a restraunt. This is probably the rudest thing to do. If you must be on your cell, at least keep your voice down in respect for other customers. If you are on your cell phone when we walk up to greet your table we will walk away and not return until you get off your phone. Just show some respect and give us your attention for a couple of minutes.

12. TAKE-AWAY OR TO-GOS: Always remember to tip the take-out order servers! They work just as hard as a server, and hardly ever get tips for it! WE DESERVE TO BE TIPPED TOO!

Please repost this so the word can get out, since so many people are uneducated about tips and our lives depend on this - at least for now......



Started my new job...

Oh wow, you know when you work somewhere especially if it's food related I get rather nazi like about certain things.

However I must say that even though I am not a fan of sushi the other style food we carry there is exceptionally good and I really like it :)

Not liking my job too much, then again I just hate being new and having everyone and their mother talk down to you and such. So we'll see how it all works out and all that jazz...

Funny story though I found out what my tattoos mean in another language, since they are kanji symbols they can be translated into 2 different languages and in chinese my tattoos mean evil and lustful and I love it lol

Had some guy come in today and he was overtly flambouant and REALLY drunk and beyond hillarious, he totally made my afternoon!

The one thing that I don't like aobut my job too much is the lack of recycling that we do. As in none, so i'm going to get on my bosses ass about that because there's no need for us to have that much freaking garbage!

That was one thing I or most likely the only thing I could respect about my old job, at least it recycled and what not.


pointless up-date...

So I got a new job, this is something entirely new for me so we'll see what happens and how that all goes.

I have a fairly good idea about who ratted me out, but still can't confirm it 100% but i'll find out eventually. I know that I will.

In other news my rather creepy roomate is moving down towards my end of the house and that's well not cool to say the least...

I really have nothing else to comment on for the moment, I just felt compelled to at least attempt to write something, even if it is mundane and somewhat lame lol


ok what?

I should change my blog's name to I hate stupid people...

Ok granted not everyone is stupid but some people I tell you, just aren't that bright. We all have our moments, myself included...

However, had a job interview this week that I feel compelled to share with you all. Now I got the call back for an interview several days ago but had to put it off because I was ill and well as you all know, nothing says hire me more then coughing up gobs of phelm during an interview! Well apparently the induvidual I had an appointment with at a very high end establishment I might add, apparently forgot. Once the excecutive chef was in front of me his confusion was apparent, he even asked me what exactly did he call me for. So needless to say I walked out of there thinking to myself WTF? I mean seriously how un-organized can you be? I understand that i'm just an induvidual on paper but they called me for an interview so it was apparent that something in my resume caught their attention, right???? No apparently that's not the case...

I also got another rather exciting, not to mention exceptionally well paying job that was my former company's biggest competition. Needless to say I wanted that job one becuase of the money of course it was 6/hour more then what I was making for half the work, not to mention that working for them just would have been a kick in the face to my old company which would have in effect been almost better the sex! However given the part of town that it was in and not to mention the start time of 5am I had to decline which was un-fortunate. However they did assure me that they would hold onto my CV in the event that other opportunity's arise that make it a little easier for me to get into work, since I don't drive.

Stay tuned!


i'm not dead!

Nor am I giving this blog up, i'm just battling the flu at the moment and have been spending 90% of my time in bed. Looks like not having a job is a blessing since i can lounge around all day in my jammies and not give a damn lol.

Oh job interviews, I have several so this should be interesting I think!
Wish me luck!


Stressed NO MORE!

My phone was ringing off the hook last night in a metaporical sense since I have a cell phone. I love all my former co-workers save for the odd one that drove me nuts, but you get one in every crowd.

I don't miss my job but I will most certainly miss the people that I work with, the sly comments and the outlandish in-appropriate ones as well. That's ok because I can at the very least still stay in touch with them and that's all that matters. You work with someone and after a while they become your friend and you really are interested in what goes on in their life.

Don't feel sorry for me, i'll always find a way to land on my own two feet and that's all that matters. No slacking off for me, I already started looking for a new job in the event that the one I was offered doesn't pan out for a while.

Do I really want to go back to cooking again FUCK NO! But that's the one thing that I was exceptioanlly good at and will be again. I have bills to pay, at least the company I used to work for has to give me two weeks severance since I worked there so long.

Kitchen life drives me nuts, especially picky customers and servers who just can't seem to get it together. I love when customers say I don't want something random in my food and proclaim some wierd allergy. Now don't get me wrong, I wholly respect food allergies for what they are because I have my own. No if you don't want 10 out of the 15 items listed in your main dish then for the love of God order something else! No not every place that I worked at had standards, most of them don't in some form or another.

Oh yeah and on a funny side note as I was getting fired yesterday I was told that they ( they meaning higher level management) was stuck dealing with it ( my blog) all day. That's interesting cos while talking to a friend at a aprox 5pm my blog had only gotten 16 hits. Furthermore those aren't induvidual unigue hits either, I can sit here for hours and hit the refresh button and that counts as a hit. So whenever I edit my blog or re-post that counts as a hit. So i'm inclined to think that most of those "hits" in the begining were mine...

Nice try, but i'm not foolish enough to buy into that bullshit!


Fired for expressing myself and speaking my mind

Oh yes! I got FIRED today because of my blog, interesting...

You know my actual place of employment, nor whom I work for was ever disclosed, nor did I intend it to be and it won't. However it's been of a certain matter of speculation today apparently. It's actually less then 24 hours old...

I knew something was up when the big boss walked in. That's ok I don't hate my former boss, I actually thought they were cool and as a matter of fact I still do. I do feel really bad for those who are now going to get stuck doing my job and I feel really sorry for certain people who will in any event remain nameless because they will be the one taking the biggest hit, not me. I'll go on with my life and that will be that.

It's no secret that i've hated my job for the longest time, I got tired and fed up with being taken advantage of LONG before this. What do you expect, huge corporations are without souls and totally un-caring they wouldn't be profitable otherwise. I just recently got offered a better job with better wages and had and still have every intention of taking it. Even the induvidual who fired my ass admitted that I had every right to express myself, however apparently that isn't the case because if you express yourself and say what you think but don't actually act upon it in person but choose to complain about it in YOUR OWN TIME, that's right MY time. I don't write on my blog at work, you get promptly fired.

What ever happened to freedom of speech? Apparently in some cases that quite simply doesn't exsist. Am I sorry for partaking in this blog and saying how I really feel IN MY OWN TIME? No. I do have remorse for my co-workers cos they do get railroaded enough as well. Do i think it was worth it, yes actually I do because you know what I would rather get fired for expressing myself and standing up for what I believe in as opposed to something immoral.

Most people will likely say that I shouldn't have posted my picture in conjunction with this blog ( otherwise they wouldn't have had a clue) but I have nothing to hide so why use annonminty when I felt there was no need to. I didn't and still don't slander anyone and nothing I posted wasn't true either, there's truth in everything that I write but apparently that makes me un-ethical and without principle. Whatever, I kiss no one's ass nor will I aplogise for who or what I am. Not today, not tommrow, not ever. As I am generally fond of saying: Everything happens for a reason and when one door closes another one opens...

Stay posted cos this is no where near come to it's conclusion yet...

The time isn't right on this either, if it matters it's currently 4:37pm not 1:30 in the afternoon.


The powers of observation, they amaze me...

Or well more like lack thereof...
Never a dull moment at my job I tell you.

Snotty bitch prof shows up with her second cup coffee ( please refer to 1st post for more details on snotty bitch prof,), that's nice. Wish she would have brought me one too while she was at, whore ( *edit* I didn't say that to her!)...

So I have a selection of ridculously over-priced pre-prepared food in one of my fridges. Yesterday someone bought a salad and decided that there was too much oregano in it and had someone else return it. Of course asking for a replacement...

You can't return something just because you don't fucking like it!!! No I will NOT give you a refund or a replacement. I DON'T make them, in fact they're made elsewhere. Yes i'll accept your feedback but don't expect ME to do anything about it, cos I don't care.

When my security gate is locked I AM CLOSED... Don't stand there and bitch to my supervisor cos he ain't going to serve your doofus ass either! While you were standing at my newly constructed counter with your girlfriend I told you in a nice way to decide if you were going to get anything please do so now because I am closing in five minutes. You screw around for 10 minutes, i'm closed after you have made up your mind. Go to SP or AD they're open longer to serve you, I on the other hand close at THREE PM I don't care how late your classes are, that is once again not my problem...

Another thing, I serve NOTHING that is called "that one" WTF is "that one"? If you don't know what it's called then you shouldn't be eating it!

No my black olive baguette DOES NOT contain blueberry's! Seriously you are a university student, please use your common sense and don't make such moronic observations that are well simply put just plain nasty!

There is a reason why I can no longer accept tips, therefore I no longer have a tip box at my location.
a theiving prick that ruined it for us all. Not only was he robbing the company he was also stealing tips from his co-worker. Because of that, none of us are alloweed to accept tips anymore. I'm supposed to have a box for kids help phone but I feel that's mis-leading and I refuse to have one at my location. So thanks you fucking douchetard for ruining it for ALL of us! I console myself with the fact that his visa expired and his ass got kicked out of Canada. What comes around goes around... Betcha he's not smiling anymore...

To conclude:
I have no phone at my location, so mostly I rely on my cell phone. So today i'm sitting behind the counter texting someone and some random girl walks up to my counter. So I ask her what I can get for her since 95% of my stuff is now served by yours truly... She says to me " I need your cell phone, can I use it to make a call?" My first thought was gee, do I know you?, ummm no, chances of you using MY phone: 0
I said well no i'm on pay-as-you-go which I am, although I do have a plan which includes a 100 daytime minutes. However since my extension STILL isn't hooked up yet I am without a land line of sorts. being billed by the minute doesn't entail a lot of talk time (I do occasionally need to call the big caf, or certain managers call me to waste my minutes asking why the vending inventory isn't done...
FIND A DAMN PAYPHONE YOU CHEAP BITCH! Cos we all ask random strangers to use our cell phones... ( *edit* no I didn't say that to her either)
Besdies my text messages have priorty cos of who they're getting sent to and he agress lol

Another day, another 50 cents...

Re-posted from Sept 12th

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother getting out of bed to go to my job in the morning... Most days it's not THAT bad and I can generally deal. However some people just never cease to blow me away.

I pretty much self operate a cafe at a university, self operate meaning that i'm the only one that works there and during their breaks, I get ass fucked. Simple as that but hey me being "super Steph" (yes apparently I am a super hero look for the comic and matching action figures soon) I can deal...

I love how people ASSUME that because I have an uber shitty job, that apprently equals me being uneducated. No as a matter of fact i'm not but for several reasons I haven't been able to pursue my career but eventually I can and will make that happen.

I have a preofessor that comes to see me for her daily caffeine fix. She's nice enough I suppose but in some ways a rather egotistical bitch. She commented on my closing time (3pm) however the day before I closed at 2:30 much to everyone's disdain and dismay. That was a minor error on a few people's parts...

Anyway the conversation went as follows:
Snotty bitch prof. :Well you know there is afternoon classes that start at 1 and end at 4pm you know.
Me: Yeah and?
Snotty bitch prof. : well I don't let my students go for break until 2:45pm and they would appreciate if you were still open because the would like to get coffee.
Me: *shrugs* I don't make the schedule around here, let me refer you to my manager so you can complain to someone who might be able to do something.
Snotty bitch prof. : Well maybe you should suggest to your boss to stay open until 3:30pm then
Me: Can I make a suggestion, she says sure to which I say sure if your willing to pay my overtime I will be happy to bend over backwards to please you.
Snotty bitch prof. : * mouth agape* well it's you who's losing money and business you know.
Me:(*edit I thought this but didn't actually say this, should have clarified that at the time*) Yeah well for one thing I don't get paid enough to care, for 2. I still get paid wether you come here or not...
I just informed here that I had no real partaking in such things and had no choice over what time I closed either.
to which I pasted on my fake sincere go fuck yourself smile and told her to have a nice morning.
Which leads me to customer number two that just blew me away...
ok picture this: Customer walks up trying to look urban chic and doing a really bad job of it ( I really need to take pictures of my customers sometimes so you can get the full effect) Wearing this ugly ass leather trench coat and these hot pink (oh yes hot pink) John Lennon style sunglasses that were the size of toonies on a head that was the size of a watermellon.
She walks up to my counter with a ton of pomp and circumstance and thinking that her fat ass is far more superior to anyone else who happened to be around.She buys a medium coffee, pays for it and just stands there.
Anyone using their powers of observation would realise that coffee is SELF SERVE where I work. She was appalled proclaiming and I quote " Oh my GOD I have to serve myself?" "Umm yeah what do you think this is the Ritz? ( I didn't say that but I was thinking it)" I pointed out her purchased cup sized and shipped her fat ass over to where the coffee is.
Then this get's even funnier: "do you have any real milk ( I had run out of milk hours prior to that)?" To which I couldn't resist replying " umm I don't carry fake milk..." "well all you have is cream left, I don't want cream" I just looked at her and said "well there's a second cup on the corner if you prefer", she hefted her fat ass outta my area and left.
I sell Starbucks coffee but I ain't no fucking starbucks!
Oh and this just takes the cake back onto the milk thing...
Starbucks coffee is really strong so most people "water it down with milk/cream milk obviously being the more popular choice and God forbid I don't have a damn cow in the back when it runs out...
All of my supplies are halfway across campus if I run out of something too damn bad. Customer from hell went a little something like this:"Do you have any milk left?" "Nope sorry ran out a while ago" "What do you mean you have no milk left, how can you not have milk?" "Well you guys used it all and I ran out, it happens, I was busy today (and annoyed and starting to get really pissed off...)" "OMFG I need milk, I can't drink my coffee without milk can't you get some like right now? I need it for my coffee ( all the while running all over the place about to have a stroke apparently)" "Oh i'm sorry I don't keep a cow in the back for these occasions ( *edit again I didn't say that but I was thinking it!*) I close in 5 minutes"
Finally one of her friends hauled off, good thing cos I was tempted to kick her spoiled ass!
I HATE first year students You know i'm supposed to be there to serve them, not be their damn servant...
Tune in next time for another one of my upmost bitch fests, cos they're only going to get better...
