This is my 650th post! Holy shit, I really never do shut up!
We've lost another FNG, utterly through her own actions. I didn't think she'd last long anyway, because she just couldn't seem to wrap her little brain around the fact that we're not her other restaurant. She was also working at a pizza place, and every other word out of her mouth was something about how things were so much better there, or she just didn't understand why we didn't do THIS or THAT like at her other job, or how she just couldn't remember all our sides because at her other job they only have four. Wait, you mean different restaurants have different shit? No fucking way!
Anyway, on her last shift a few days ago, FNG was sat with two police officers at one of her booths. She approached the table, saw they were cops, and then walked right past them and said to the hostess, “I am not waiting on 52!”
Yeah …. table 52 is right by the host stand. So naturally her vehemence caught their attention, and they were listening when she lowered her voice and went into a diatribe. Apparently, she fucking hates cops. She thinks they're all assholes, she refuses to wait on them, and she thinks this city's cops are particularly douchebaggy. She wishes they'd never come in, they make everyone uncomfortable. She then asked the hostess to never, ever seat her with goddamn cops again, and went off to find someone else to take the table.
The nice officers finished their lunch, waited on by Tiffany, and then requested to speak to the manager. It's probably lucky that CL wasn't there, she might have had a stroke. Instead, HotPants got the job of assuring the police that FNG would be talked to about her attitude and that they do not, in fact, make everyone uncomfortable.
Needless to say, FNG was suspended, code for fired on the next payday, immediately. You just can't talk that way about customers where they can hear you.
It doesn't help that insulting the police is a bit of a sore spot with CL anyway, due to a story I haven't shared yet. It's a little too specific, plus not entirely resolved, so I'm waiting for the fallout before I write it up. For now let's just say another employee lost their job because they pissed off a police officer. So for a second of her employees to do it again sent CL through the freaking roof. I didn't even see her until almost a week after it happened, and her face still turned a frightening shade of red while she talked about it.
