Human Resources Don't Fail Me Now.
It was The New Guy's first day yesterday. All he was asked to do was to deliver the goods safely to a couple of coffeeshops and not to wear an apron into the men's room.
After taking over an hour and a half to do a 45 minute delivery, we get a call from Cafe #1.
"Hi. Umm, we just got our box of brownies and um, they look like a truck ran over them. They're completely smashed. We can't use them at all."
Then Cafe #2 calls.
"Hi? Yeah, umm? like our cupcakes are like umm all crushed? and like the cookies are just a box of like crumbs? "*
Us: "Oh gosh, yeah, sorry. We have a New Guy today and he's just not working out so well."
Cafe #2: "Um. Like apparently?"
When I called The New Guy today to find out exactly what happened - because it's not often that we get a complaint that references tire tracks - he didn't even bother hemming and hawing. All he said was that the bag was heavy!
Me: "But How Did Everything Get Crushed?! They said the entire order was in crumbs?! How did you do that?"
New Guy: "It was just heavy. And I said I was sorry to the girl at Cafe #1. They're lying at Cafe #2!"
Me: "Well you didn't apologize to me and you just cost me $150. You're fired."
Yeah, and then the little turd wore the cute chartreuse retro cat apron Rasputina gave me into the men's room.
I got an email from a 16 year old who was interested in a baking job I had posted on craigslist. When I didn't get back to her after a couple of days, I got an email from her that simply said "So...?"
Please Lord, please protect the Idiots and the Immature and give me the Grace, Wisdom and Patience of a Saint during difficult times. Otherwise a Divine Intervention may be needed. Amen. Thank you JesusHolyMarySt.FrancisMaryMagdalene. Amenagain.
