We got a new cook.

He sucks.
He doesn't read the dupes and he is a condescending prick.
Example: We have lunch specials, a soup and a sandwich, no french fries.
So we write "Special ham sandwich on rye toast," which means no fries.
This is exactly what I wrote, and he gave me french fries. I said "Oh, this sandwich doesn't get fries."
He gets an attitude with me, saying "Well, then, you need to WRITE that. Next time, you write 'no fries.'"
This pissed me off. I mean, I understand he's new and doesn't understand all of our menu items, so I don't blame him for the honest mistakes. But this guy has been here less then a week and wants to tell me how to do my job, even if he thinks I'm wrong? Not to mention, he sees something on the check he doesn't recognize and doesn't ask me or one of the other cooks?
So I got snotty right back and said, "I don't have to write no french fries, I wrote SPECIAL which means no french fries."
That's just one of many, and I've only worked about four shifts with him.

Also, obviously the cooks make crude jokes and such with us, and he's started it. But he takes it over the line, and he doesn't know us yet. So one of the girls turned right around and said, "That is inappropriate and I don't want you to EVER talk to me like that again."

He just sucks. I doubt he'll last long because nobody is a fan and we have our ways.

  1. Oh the joys of the dumbasses who don't realize that the manager's official firing of someone is typically the LAST person in the building to 'fire' that someone.

    The staff at every place I've worked hires and fires and we just wait for the manager to say the official word.
