All my managers were absolute shit heads who took their hatred of their sorry lives out on the employees.

my gopher/assistant has been fucking me in the ass all week. it's gotten to the point where i would rather just have him stand there and not "help" me while i ran around and did everything myself. i just can't trust him. gotta babysit.

my mom put the idea in my head that he's doing it on purpose because he's mad/bitter that he's older than me and has been working there for longer and i'm a new hire and am his superior.

this tends to be true in the food service industry in general.

given that i basically went from the kitchen to the office, it's generally true. people in high positions of offices fuck things up all the time, really important things, and nobody cares and everyone tells each other what a great job they're doing, regardless of whether or not the job they are doing is actually can be described as "great" (this was one of many frustrating things about my previous employer because people were doing incredibly terrible jobs, including management)

but if you cooked the steak wrong or didn't plate something with the right sides or you're just in the weeds YOU ARE HUMAN WASTE

luckily in my old kitchen job the cooks weren't bitter, they would just dog you hardcore like elphenor mentioned. the sorry lives story came more from FOH managers.

honestly i just see it as "manly work".

dudes dog each other all the time for not pulling their weight on any team. they make fun of the weakest link but if they ride you the most that means they like you. its almost like prison - they come at you with all kinds of bullshit to see how you handle it so they can gauge what kind of man you are.

or something.

they are meanest to waiters but they usually enjoy if you abuse them back

i remember one exchange I had as waitstaff with a cook

"Because you can't do a ticket I jerked off in the mashed potatoes, faggot."
"Oh, that's great Ralph. I didn't know you could still get it up without using nipple clamps."

i dunno about this

there's an intro period where they see how you react, and if you take it badly they do it more

i generally would ignore them

"Hey you fat fucker, I remade that fucking steak order and put my ball hair on it."
"Okay, Frank."

Yeah I get it.
It's like were all in this shitty job, better make it fun.

But I had this one manager who talked shit non-stop but couldn't take anything back without becoming a total bitch. God, I hated that guy.

in my experience you would have had to say:

NO I'M GOING TO STAND HERE AND BABYSIT YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU DO IT RIGHT BECAUSE APPARENTLY I HAVE TO

or

I'LL GIVE YOU 5 DOLLARS IF YOU DON'T FUCK THIS UP

i would never say the latter, what cooks do you work with that would then do it perfectly and hassle you about 5 dollars until you had to give it to them

just as a reminder i was a kitchen employee and not a server so i still thought it was funny when a chef made a server cry because in our eyes they deserved it

its all about the threat - they would never call your bluff - only respect you less (which was not the goal at all) if you didn't pay

the food they produced was an extension of themselves, therefore every complaint or compliment really hit the bone

the problem, as mentiond before, was when FOH wouldn't stand up for themselves like the dirty dogs in back would.

"well they said they wanted it medium"
"IT IS MEDIUM ITS A PERFECT MEDIUM" [[cuts through the center]]
"well yes i can see that but cook them another one and btw (to the server) give it to them on the house"

that's just super super super shitty

My job right now is crazy chill.

I took a 30 minute 10 the other day and no one even noticed. You could never pull that shit in food service.

i mentioned this earlier but i'm working for a compnay that drug tests AFTER the 90 day probation period. like after 90s days i get benefits and THEN i'm tested.

on one hand - this doens't make any sense. why not immediately not hire these people?

on the other - i guess it gives a chance for employees to get clean?
