You were fired, let go, etc. BECAUSE they know. Did you by chance read the email commenting on staff not tweeting, fb, bloging (sic) on celebrities that come into the restaurant. That was because they read your blog.
Penelope, when I was “let go” they were very careful to NOT mention the blog, because they knew that I did nothing against the rules. They came up with a bullshit reason to fire me citing my “scheduling issues” which were not really a problem at all. I was in agreement to not say that I was fired for the blog and went along with the official reason of my “scheduling issues.” But thank you for confirming that the reason I was fired was for anonymously writing a personal opinion piece. Surely, they didn’t want that to be thought of as the reason because there has been case after case taken to court that gives people the right to comment online about their place of work if it is done anonymously. Which it was. People have taken employers to court to fight for their job back after being fired for the reason you just told me I was fired for. Luckily, I don’t want the job back. But thanks for confirming. As for the email about not Tweeting, etc, that came to me after I was fired. No where in the piles of crap that I signed did it say anything about that. I checked. I bet from now on there will be though. You’re welcome.
“Lispy Gay Manager was really hurt by a fellow gay making fun of him.“
Well, then maybe you shouldn’t have shown him the blog. I guess you hold some responsibility for his feelings being hurt, because it wasn’t me who alerted him about the highly fictionalized version of him. And who says I’m gay? Me? Gay? That’s silly, girlfriend.
“Maybe this will help confirm things for you. Behind your back we refer to you as Side Show Bob.”
Side Show Bob is cool. You don’t have to refer to me that way behind my back. Friends refer to me that way in front of my back. I don’t mind it.
“Ok I am really going to stop indulging in this.”
I doubt you can stop indulging in this. The Bitchy Waiter is like a donut. You know it’s not that good for you, but it’s a guilty pleasure. I know you have probably been reading the whole time since I was fired and couldn’t wait to respond to the “I was fired post.” And you did it. The day I posted it. Thank you for not disappointing me.
And you should also know that I have gotten more than a few emails from people from the “new job” who said they like the blog. They have agreed with many of my observations about some of the people that were written about. So, I was not the only “cancer” on the staff. Maybe you should spend some time searching out who also thinks some of the staff there have sticks up their asses. I am not the only one. I have the emails to prove it. And I recognize some of the fans on the Facebook page too. So yes, I am done with this. I wrote some mean things. I’m sorry. But you know what? The staff there was not very friendly to me either. I understand why. People must come and go so quickly (Judy Garland reference and so gay) there and people don’t want to invest any time in the new folks until they know they are going to be there for a while. It’s a shit show. There was no communication, the policies were never explained to me, I was told I did not have a paycheck when in fact I did, they ignored my emails, and they never followed through on what I was told would happen from orientation through getting on the floor. I was excited to work there when I got hired, but it changed. If no one would have been an ass to me, I wouldn’t have had anything bad to write about.
