A Sickening Lack Of Concern

, | Working | March 13, 2015

(I’ve recently had to take some time off work due to a family emergency. I go back for one shift, then have a day off, but feel ill that day and spend most of the night throwing up. I have a shift later that day so call my manager.)

Manager: “Hello?”

Me: “Hi. I’m scheduled to work this evening, but spent most of last night throwing up. Is there a rule—”

Manager: “—you’re not missing another shift.”

Me: “I actually feel better now. But seeing as we’re working with food, do I have to wait 24 hours or anything after being sick?”

Manager: “Just come in. You can clear tables.”

(I went in. I ended up serving food. Luckily that manager left a month later.)
