god fucking dammit! i now officially hate easter, though easter has nothing to do with it, i guess i just hate work now. i'm actually two piss off-es away from quiting that hell hole and am wondering right now why i'm not.|
oh yeah, too lazy.
my boss richard is the ultimate fuck-tard that you could ever meet. the day starts off as easter, and ofcourse i have to work, cause i'm lucky that i get my day off off, if that makes any sense. so, i normally go into work on sundays at three o'clock, and start doing the opening work: i.e. folding about two hundred napkins and getting straws ready for the night. you know, opening the resturaunt. now, we open at four on sundays, which gave me one and a half hours to do the opening work, yet i wasn't able to finish it until five this afternoon. why, you ask? cause i was the only one that showed up (for the floor part). so, ted, the incompetent manager, doens't show up until 6 this afternoon, and karen, the other waitress, doens't come in until 5:15-ish. by myself, i had to vaccuum the entire resturaunt, set up the bar, take out all of the ash trays and the bench, fold 200 napkins, put paper onto 500 chopsticks (cause the owner's too cheap to buy the chopsticks pre-wrapped in paper), strip about 120 straws, clean the rice warmer, the fridge, the soup container, tempura sauce container, hot tea water container, sake machine, bus room, beer bottles, bus trays, spill carpets and table rags, set up all the tables and take every customer for the first hour and a half that we were opened. and even after karen got there i had to take all the customers because her husband let his kid run on the top of his car and the kid kicked in the sunroof for some reason...
now, i didn't mind to do all this so long as they did all of the closing work. much less work, i know, but something to show appreciation, considering they were given this time off from richard because they "celebrate easter", even though everybody in the entire resturaunt celebrate easter except for aki and richard. aki and i could leave an hour early so that we could have dinner at erica's house, which he didnt' let us do cause he was too busy having easter dinner to come into work until we closed. now, why would i almost quit. here we go: even though i did everything in the beginning, and i came in really early today without any extra pay, he lets karen leave work early, forcing me to do all of the closing work by myself, since ted's "too busy" doing nothing. then he throws all the menus onto the sushi bar and takes the toothpick that was inside of his mouth and throws it at me cause i forgot to do ONE opening job, which is actually ted's opening job. all i'm supposed to do is check to make sure he didnt make any mistakes closing out the checks, even though i dont' know how to close checks, i have never closed a check before, and i have no right to close a check considering I AM NOT THE MANAGER. ted is the manager. ted makes the manager pay. ted does nothing all day long except have stinky breath. that's really all he does. and he starts talking about me to aki, right infront of me, saying how lazy i am. aki explained to him how i did all of that work by myself, which he wouldn't knwo since he never came into work, and his reply was: "i told her to do it yesterday. she made a promise, and now she broke it" (which technically isnt' true cause i did it right after he threw stuff at me). and aki said that he was wrong for doing/saying any of that stuff, and his reply to that was: "if you're gonna say that to me, then i'm gonna go tougher on her." i suddenly have the urge to go to the better business beaur..ro.. can't spell, wasted brain as a waitress...
this rant can go on much longer, but then i'll just get pissed even more.
fuck, now i'm really pissed...
