Today is what I call a resume day. I walk around the city with a vague list of places I’d like to work (I really wanna work at a diner cause I love and adore diners) and I introduce myself and ask if they’re hiring. On my way to one of the diners I saw a really pretty restaurant with lovely live Christmas trees outside it and I thought why not. I went in asked if they were hiring and they asked if I had a resume so I gave it to them. Then they gave me a sheet that said interview quiz (I have never seen this before and was totally unprepared) and I filled it out and got a bunch of questions wrong (the wine related ones). So I was like ok that’s a wrap lol and I felt so dumb. But they were like just wait here the manager wants to speak to you. So I waited. And waited … and waited for an hour of my life. When she finally finally appeared she said so you don’t have any restaurant experience (I did) not a lot but still. She said you were only allowed to get one wrong on the quiz. I got more. And then she said the worst part. But you’re cute so come back in a few months when you’ve gotten more experience. The whole thing was so disrespectful and condescending. She treated me like my time didn’t matter. It did not take her an hour to realize I didn’t have a chance to be considered for employment at that restaurant and when she finally appeared to tell me that she didn’t apologize for wasting an hour of my life. And she called me cute which was condescending and strange. I’m a human being and I should be treated with respect. People should value our time especially when someone is hustling to try and find employment. I guess when you get to a position of power some people tend to forget that and forget that people are people and not just things you have to deal with. When you’re trying to accomplish something time is money and how you utilize it is the difference between failure and success. The fact that an hour of mine was wasted when it could have been ten minutes is really annoying and rude.
I write the specials on the multiple chalkboards in the bar I work every morning. This morning the soup is beef vegetable and the special is chicken parm hero but on the sandwich board that goes outside I for some reason wrote beef vegetable soup and chicken Parmesan soup and my boss noticed and brought it inside for me to fix.😬
I work at a bar as a waitress and yesterday the bartender asked me to help so I went behind the bar for the first time and tried to assist lol. But I’m clumsy and clueless so i accident butchered my finger and broke two wine glasses🤷🏼♀️
