“F” Now Means “Fired”

, , , , , | Working | May 10, 2018

(I’m head server at a fine-dining restaurant. I have all of the responsibility with none of the firing power. My manager just hired his niece as a server. Her first shift, she was almost an hour late… to a four-hour training shift. She is almost an hour late again today.)

Me: “You need to show up on time. If you’re late again, you’ll be fired.”

New Hire: “I don’t see the big deal. I’m here for 75% of my shift. That’s a D. I’m not failing.”

Me: “That… isn’t how jobs work. You show up on time, when you’re scheduled. You’re not in school anymore.”

New Hire: “Whatever. [Uncle] says you can’t fire me, anyway. Just go, like, do your actual job instead of nitpicking me.”

(Her uncle spoke to her, and is letting me do the honors of firing her if she’s late again.)
