Pizza Pie Cafe

Yes, I'm going to blog about my work. Well, more about the people at work. And no, it's not going to be the nicest.

-First of all, you should know that most of the time that I'm working, I'm on salad. Which entails: cutting lettuce, eggs, cucumbers, broccoli, stocking peas, turkey, can backups and making dressings, plus keeping an eye on the salad bar and making sure that it doesn't get too low for the customers. And yanno, I'm pretty freaking good at what I do. So that's fine. But on the weekdays, I have to leave at 3:30 to get to school in time. The next girl that comes in, doesn't come in until about 6:30, and she isn't the most intelligent person that we have working there. When someone closes the salad bar, they fill up all of the stuff that's on the salad bar (if you've been there, you should know what "stuff" I'm talking about) and then they put it in the fridge nice and orderly so that in the morning, all we have to do is take the stuff out of the fridge and place it on the salad bar: SHA-BANG! It's looking nice. And for some reason, we always have problems with the night salad girls.. So, I helped them out by writing a sign that says: "If you're closing the salad bar, FILL UP THE CROCS!!" (Crocs are the containers that hold all of the food that's on the salad bar) Pretty straight forward sign, right? Self explanatory? Yeah, that's what I thought too. But apparently, we need to be MORE straight forward. Because this morning, NOTHING WAS FULL! And it's irritating to me, because I only have half an hour to get things all set up before we open, and I have other things that I need to do before I start working on prepping the salad area. WHY ARE PEOPLE SO INCOMPETENT?!
-Next girl that happens to have the same name as girl number one, is also quite... stupid? Brainless? Whichever word you choose, it's basically the same thing. I was working on my stuff, as usual, and she comes up to me and asks if she can help. Sure! So there's an empty container and a big square strainer with turkey in it. So I told her to transfer the turkey from the strainer to the container. Now, how would you take care of this situation? Pour turkey into container. Simple. She asks me.. "Uh, how do I do that?" So I said "Pour the turkey into the container." "But how?" OH MY GOSH, YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! She's also the same girl that didn't know how to cut eggs..?

With an egg slicer that looks like this, HOW THE FREAK CAN YOU GET CONFUSED?!?

Now, you might say that because I'm getting irritated with these girls, I won't be a good elementary teacher because guaranteed, those kids aren't always going to do what I tell them. But there's a difference between 6-9 year olds and 20 year olds who should have some common sense by now and also be able to read.

My goodness, what kind of people are we hiring?!?!!
