I had to fire someone today.
Depending on if you like the person or not that can be fun. I use to be a shift manager at a place and got to fire a few peep's in my day. I enjoyed firing two of them.
It actually was a 17 year old kid who showed up 2 hours late. "I had to help my mom do something" was the cherry on top. He' wasn't fit for my outfit. I've had a few customers complain about him so it's down the road for him. He's not a bad kid but I don't employ people because they are nice guys.
For the record, I don't like firing people. However I have no problem doing it. Two months ago I fired someone I've known for 5 years. I even went to his wedding. Business first.
I fired a 16 year old girl who I hired and I hand selected from like 20 app's (Really cute redhead who I enjoyed interviewing) She was slow, lazy and caught 3 times talking on her cell phone when she had customers waiting for her to take thier order. Well she came in one night on my shift wearing white shoes (Dress code requires black) and without her apron. I told her as nicely as I could she needed to go home and get the rest of her uniform and be back within 1 hour. (She only live like 15 mins from work) Well after a hour and thirty minutes she should back up and she still didnt have her apron. So I told her to just go home and dont bother coming back.
I hated firing her because she was nice to look at.
I fired this one guy and tried my hardest not to laugh as he sat there and asked me if I knew what it was like to have to work to pay to put gas in your own car.
(His very rich parents got him a brand new 2004 GMC Yukon, they paid cash for it and paid his insurance on it for a full year in advance. The only "requirement" was he had to buy his own gas for it.)
I found him twice in the same night outside the building showing his car off to his buddies who came by to see him while he was at work. I didnt like him from hsi first night because he had a bad attitude, the first time I walked out and told him to come back in b/c he had guest waiting on him. He then complained to me that he wasn't use to working so we shouldnt expect much from him. The 2nd time I found him outside (Barely twenty minute slater) I told him that since he was out there he could get in his car and go home.
I have alot more stories, I worked in a resturant with a bunch of idiots, there is only like 5 or 6 of us who actually had a clue what to do there. Alot of fun, alot of nightmares, but the stories last a life time
