And by someone I mean my coffee boss, Mandy, and her little side kick Janet!
We have not heard a word from Mandy in over two weeks, since we packed everything up and moved it into storage to wait a few days until we could open in our new downtown location.
That was at the end of last month and we have heard nothing from her since.
I was ready to start looking for a new job again. Dazed and confused, but okay with whatever.
Then we get a text late yesterday saying that there is a meeting at 6:30 to hammer things out for opening downtown.
Thanks a lot for your planning skills, Mandy
I was pissed that she expected us to drop anything we had going on to come to her little powwow, but I got over it and moved my schedule around to go accommodate her so that we could to this meeting with our little group so we would know what the hell is going on.
Guys. When I talk about our group of people who are moving downtown. It's Mandy and her Partner, Juan, Mandy's sister, a girl named Tiffany, Mona and I, and then there is Janet who worked as a waitress in the no longer existing Mexican restaurant and has never made a cup of coffee in her life!
Sorry, I digress.
So this super small group of 3 employees (I'm not including Janet) have been working our tales off to be open 16 hours a day on top of us all having other full time jobs.
Last time we got together she was telling us what a wonderfully great team we were.
We get to this ill prepared meeting and she blindsides us.
Telling us exactly how it is going to be and that if we don't start doing exactly what is expected of us at exactly the right time we will be chewed out. Her, Juan, and her sister will be there to make sure we keep in line.
She's basically telling us that we are lazy, slobs, who don't know how to do their jobs.
She literally said "WE WILL YELL AND NO LONGER SUGAR COAT THINGS"
I don't think I have ever been more insulted in my life.
I am extremely hard and good worker.
Not to brag, but to give you insight into the situation, I have three jobs and am getting my bachelors in business management.
My bosses, at a major medical facility, come to me with their problems and have me training other employees. I have never been written up. I am never late. I don't have patients complain about me. I have patients who come back just to say hi to me after they are done with their appointments. My old bosses trust me enough that, even after I quit working for them, they ask me to stay in their homes and watch their dogs while they are gone for weeks at a time. I have even had other team leaders in our health system come to me and ask me if I would like me to work for them.
And Mona has been working her butt off this lady. She has basically been doing the job of a manager while getting paid minimum wage.
We have all been going above and beyond for this woman.
And did I mention we volunteered our time to help her with this move?
I was honestly ready to walk away at that point. And I would have been fine without loosing a wink of sleep over it, until Janet opened her big fat ugly stupid mouth.
She started ripping on Mona!
LET ME TELL YOU RIGHT NOW...
YOU. DO. NOT.
She was saying stupid things about being ticked off about having to clean up after her all the time, and that she shouldn't be aloud to wear her stupid scarfs anymore, and how she has to redue all of the coffee lists she wrote out for her because she didn't do it exactly to her liking.
GUYS THIS LADY HAS NEVER EVEN TRIED TO MAKE A CUP OF COFFEE!
She is the drunk waitress who doesn't even work in the same area as Mona. AND Mona has to clean chips and salsa off the floor every morning when she comes in the morning from the mess that Janet leaves the night before!
*deep breath* deep breath*
Mona is going to meet with Mandy today to try and clear things up.
She is a better person than I right now. I just want to get out of this before I seriously injure someone.
