i heard that people in the food industry were actually a subspecies.
it’s true. i used to work in a sushi restaurant, and after a few months there i cut my finger whilst making a crispy duck futomaki and my blood was green. i also didn’t urinate or defecate for six weeks at a time. it all went back to normal though after i quit.
I worked making coffee for a while in melbourne. good coffee. $30AUD an hour. I really dunno why the workforce there wont charge more for thier time.
@leebo. sorry but i think this post seriously affected my ability to something… something..
Maybe karma will come early and Tyler will be in Buffalo Wild Wings a second time, only to find himself choking to death on an extra spicy bit of chicken chub. The wait-staff and cooks will all be doing their jobs, as expected, so there will be no time to save poor Tyler’s life.
Umm.. no, babybaby, you wouldn’t walk anywhere. You’d break down wherever you stood, b/c it wouldn’t be like, say, finding out your elderly grandparent passed. And anyways.. who made you lord of expression? She can cry wherever she wants. Gosh.
And the color of Richie’s pee directly correlates with how much he had to drink.. which was apparently enough to overload his kidneys and cloud his urine. Mmmmkaaaaaay?
You never know, she may really have been ‘balling’, i.e. curling up into a ball. ‘Tis a transitive verb. On the other hand, it also has a slang usage – ‘to have sexual intercourse’. Some people do react to death by having sex. Death > sex > life. So I think the most likely explanation is that she was fornicating in the middle of Buffalo Wild Wings. Or, umm, Tyler can’t spell…
am I the only one who can’t stand the “Death in the Family” comments on FB? Granted, Tyler is an asshole, but how was he to know that Kevin and his Server Sister lost a brother? Kevin is the lame one here.
Tristen, when a guy tells me he’s “bringing the chicken”, I know I’m in for a good time.
schiuma, the exchange rate for the $AU is pretty good right now, so $AU30hr is currently excellent for making coffee. You must’ve been down here when the rate was bad. That being said, even with a lower exchange rate it’s still reasonable coin for coffee.
In the UK at the moment, they’re paying around $AU10hr for a lot hospitality work. Now that’s shit money.
Server Sister shouldn’t have gone to work if her brother just died, ffs. Sure, she needs the money, but she gets there and can’t carry out her job and makes a big fuss in the restaurant, which damages their reputation. Surely she could’ve had a couple of days off.
And Tyler is the asshole? He’s a paying customer, it’s not his business if some bint has gone to work when she’s not fit to and has caused the rest of the staff to stop working to console her…
I know my comment was mostly unrelated to the post, but I’m feeling the need to be patriotic when it comes to what we pay our workforce. Most of the industries here with the exception of a few pay well and if not better than most other western nations.
Dead brother or no, human or not, it is extremely unprofessional for the other servers to abandon their jobs to comfort the girl. I get that she’s your friend, and I get that she may very well have just now found out, but that doesn’t mean that you need to drop everything and comfort her. Kevin’s cousin gets a pass. The other servers don’t.
Then, obviously, she should’ve gone outside or into the kitchen or something. It’s ridiculously unprofessional to cry your eyes out in front of your customers when there is an option to not do it…
Or, she could’ve asked the manager to go home early to see her family or whatever. There is a world of options which don’t involve her being unprofessional but allow her to mourn.
Just stating the obvious.
True, but I wasn’t referring to her behavior. I was referring to the part of your comment that dealt with why she was at work, since according to your her brother had already died and she’d gone into work already an emotional train wreck.
But it would certainly make more sense that she would have received the news after already being at work. Because most employers send an employee straight home if the employee shows up like a big hot mess.
Then again, this IS Lamebook, where stupidity reigns supreme. And it was at Buffalo Wild Wings (which in my experience has crappy service no matter where you go).
I’d put the onus of blame on her coworkers, though. Being emotionally crippled, she probably wasn’t thinking straight (or wasn’t thinking at all), so it falls to the reasonable people to remove her from the situation.
Note to self: word, if you hear some terrible news like the death of a loved one, or that they’re going to do at least 3 more Sex and the City sequels, make sure you’re somewhere you can grieve privately so as not to offend the delicate flowers around you with your tears, ok.
Oh right, so it’s “Hey you bunch of concerned co-workers over there consoling that balling bitch because her brother just died, get your asses over here, I want my wings, and I want them yesterday, fuckheads!”
^ You’re onto something there. Considering the fat fucks who frequent fast food restaurants, and in the process just get fatter, then further increase the burden on the healthcare system in which I work, well then yeah, I’d happily see them close their doors for that or any other reason. It’d make my working day a lot easier.
I can’t believe that when Tyler saw the waitress crying and being comforted by the other staff his first thought was “Where the hell are my wings?!”. Any human being with even the tiniest hint of compassion would at least wonder if she was alright.
I have to agree with wordperv and underthesea. you people are assholes without compassion. Guess what? professionality and your service of hotwings IS less important than someone’s grief. That’s real life. And when real life is happening everything else goes by the wayside. Someday you too will be in that situation where you unexpectedly hear of the death of a loved one. I hope someone starts screaming at you about daring to show your grief in public you heartless bastards.
“professionality and your service of hotwings IS less important than someone’s grief.”
Amen to that.
And considering that Tyler specifically said, “girl server,” the implication is she was “balling” merely because she was an overemotional girl. Which makes him even more of an inconsiderate dick.
I assumed, from Kevin’s response, that he was the one who went in to tell the server that her brother had died. Not sure how else he would know why a female server would be “balling.” Or he’s just jumping to a massive conclusion…
Either way, Tyler is 100% in the wrong. Whether he is a customer or not, human decency still counts for something.
I have dealt with women crying in a professional work environment due to the following: Reprimand, argument with a coworker, argument with a friend/boyfriend, lack of internet access, and a burnt steak (she was the chef).
Death of a loved one is an entirely valid reason to break down. But as an outsider (customer) it would be impossible to determine the reasoning. Personally, I’d just go to the bar to get a beer and watch the show.
ohbabybaby – It’s amazing that you have that kind of control. Really, if I found out, on the spot, that an immediate family member had perished, I would fall apart. And I wouldn’t care who was there watching.
For some reason, I kinda assumed that Kevin was making that up and he was the one being the ass.
Like when someone posts “omg i’m soooooooOOOooo pizzed I hope blahandblah gets mugged by midgets wearing cowboy hats with elephants riding on top of them making love to a black man with a blanket and chicken” then someone comments “my uncle died by getting mugged by midgets wearing cowboy hats with elephants riding on top of them making love to a black man with a blanket and chicken”.
