But there is one waitress who managed to stick it through more than a week. Lets call her Lazy because oh dear god he is lazy! We have three different shifts at the restaurant spread over 12 hours. So understandably, each shift is 4 hours long. Kawaii-chan runs breakfast shift, Lazy runs the lunch, and I run dinner.
Now lets get something straight, I've worked the shift after Kawaii-chan's, and she keeps everything IMPECCABLE. The tables are set, the floor is swept, and the bathrooms are stink free. She stays at the restaurant all day because after breakfast we get super popular for sushi and she makes the best, so she just stays and makes sushi for us all day, so she doesn't take care of the waitress station or the dining room.
Working after Lazy is hell. I need to do break away on all her tables, clean and set them. And then I need to pull up my sleeves and tackle the nasty ass bathrooms. I understand that it's piggy customers that make the messes, but you're PAID to be there and clean them up! Not only that, but I get to take the brunt of the complaints flooding in after Lazy's shift.
She messes up orders continually and make no mistake, she has been talked to, but Lazy continues to make these mistakes. Just yesterday I had a woman call and just start ranting because she called for a pick up earlier and when she got home she had a completely different order than what she asked for.
During my shift I act as a manager unless someone specifically asks to talk to the owner. So I had to resolve it. I asked her which waitress served her, and when the woman described the tall native with dark skin and long hair I realized it was Lazy because I'm the short native with pale skin and short hair.
When I eat out I'll usually go to my restaurant because truth be told, of everywhere in my town it's the cleanest with the best food. Other places you get a combination of burnt and cold food along with shitty service. But if Lazy is working I'll just go write down my own order because otherwise, I'll get the wrong one.
Yesterday Lazy came in to complain that I always had tips, and she never did. She concluded that Kawaii-chan's son was only tipping me out because he liked me more.
I had to stand there while he explained that the reason she was on probation, and patrons didn't tip her was she messed up too much, and he only wanted to see if she'd improve before he just fired her.
Hope your co-workers do their jobs.
