The firing of Mister Fantastic.

I was planning on adding Mister Fantastic to my "roll call" entry, but I didn't get around to it--basically because or debating what to refer to him as. Lately, I've taken to thinking of him as "Mister Fantastic" because of the fact that he referred to himself--repeatedly--as "fagtastic". Which he is not, at all, hence the sarcastic moniker.

Well, I can't remember what I was going to write about that he did, but now it doesn't matter because he's been fired. Apparently he made a huge number of mistakes last Wednesday, had two customer complaints within an hour, and some other drama-laden thing. The managers had been trying to ease him out anyway, because he really was a terrible server; he always sounded bored and/or annoyed when talking to tables, couldn't handle more than one table at ones, and I suspect came in to work drunk quite often. He was fired at the end of Wednesday night because of having too many guest complaints--which now has everybody on edge, because who doesn't have a bad night and get complaints?

Granted, there was a lot more going on with him. But what's worrisome is that he also had some sort of grumpy altercation with Chicken Little, which is why they started cutting his shifts and trying to push him into leaving. A friend of mine also had a tiff with her, relating to something completely fucking ridiculous, and she's now having her shifts slowly restricted. And I'm pretty sure I'm on her shit list too (that'll be my next post), so I'm concerned.

LD and CL sound like the typical 'pass the buck' managers you find in the restaurant world. You ever notice that they have sort of a 'Napoleanistic' style?

Funny you should say that, one of my coworkers was just calling CL a tyrant last night!
