He proceeded to launch several complaints against me, claiming I wasn't doing my job, leaving things undone and other such things. So in order to investigate the claims the DM looked through our camera footage and found that he couldn't be seen in the store at all during times he was scheduled during the same hours as me. People started complaining that he was lazy, wasn't doing anything etc, and he was fired. I've been promoted to crew trainer, and my pay was raised .75 cents woop woop!
Now for a bit of a story. I work in a town that's further north. We get a lot of the natives from reserves who come through, and let me put out there that I'm a LOT more than half blood first nations. My great grandmother could only speak my language, Cree. I can understand it completely and almost speak it fluently.
Now. I shall start the story.
An older woman came through with what I'll assume was her daughter. I'm put on counter a lot because people describe me as bouncy, bubbly and extremely polite. I was being my usual polite self and helped the customer to figure out our menu. After ten minutes of struggle, we didn't manage to get something down. They asked me to give them a minute, and I did so.
And what does she do? She proceeds to speak in Cree to the younger woman saying "I am so tired of little white bitches like this one."
WHAT. THE. FUCK!?!?
I proceeded to then and there cancel the order, and ask them to leave. The younger one proceeded to accuse me of discrimination and asked for a manager. I calmly called my favourite manager, who I'll call Fairy Bottom.
Fairy Bottom: Hello ma'am. What's the problem today.
Younger Cree Lady: Your employee refuses to serve us because we are Cree.
Fairy Bottom: And what brings you to that conclusion ma'am?
Fairy Bottom: (Turned to me now) Is this true Screaming Off Key?
Me: No, when they first came in I helped them as much as possible and explained the menu items. I did not refuse to serve them until the older one called me a bitch in Cree.
At this point both women became red in the face and started spluttering.
Older Cree Lady: And how would YOU know what I said?
Which is when I replied "Tansikatintin." (Translation: What do you think?)
After that, they spluttered some more and left of their own accord, while Fairy Bottom sent me on a fifteen.
People irk me.
