.....and all their children, and their brothers and sisters, and their children, and their friends, and their children's friends, and their children's friends' parents, plus many random pets decided to come to the pub I work in tonight.

Result? I finished work 2 hours after I was meant to.

We actually ran out of glasses. In a big pub, where we have plenty. At one point, every single glass the pub owns was out in the garden.

Why am I online when I'd much rather die?

They'd better pay me for the extra hours! If they try not to I will raise merry hell.



Hmmmm, I don't know if the pets were drinking, because I was *supposed* to be only doing food, but it might explain why we were completely cleaned out of glasses.


You know what else I hate? Stupid customers who stand so that they are completely blocking your access to the bar, and yet, no matter how many times you go, "EXCUSE ME PLEASE!" and push through them with a heavily laden tray, they still just don't take the hint. Even when there are tables to sit down at and plenty of other places to stand, they still have to make me push through them all to get to the bar or the kitchen. One guy was almost standing behind the bar at one point - leaning on the bar where you actually go in and out, so that we had to ask him to move every time we wanted to go behind or come out from behind the bar.

Fricking idiots! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

Well, the girl I was working with today ended up doing a 14 hour shift, including the busiest period for the last two months. And the dishwasher was broken so all the plates, cups, waffle-irons and Cadillacs (ect.) had to be hand-washed.

8 am till 10 pm is not a good day, except from a financial perspective.
Not from a stress point of view. lol.

BTW Nietzsche is still very much alive, he just chooses not to accept death.

this is why i didn't work in a pub/restaurant. instead i worked in a shop where middle aged women go insane for a £29.99 top, and where the managers think they're the greatest thing since the bright pink suits/orange tans they wear.

I'm pretty sure 8am to 10pm is fairly illegal, especially if she is under 18. Oh well..... :rolleyes:

I had a friend once who swore blind she hadn't used fake tan. Then she stayed round my house and my white pillow was orange in the morning. Fairly damning proof, really.

What?



There are legal guidelines as to how long people are allowed to work for in one day, and how often they must have breaks etc. Due to the shift work involved in pubs and restaurants, these laws are largely ignored. But a 14 hour day is ridiculous, and I'm pretty sure the employer is breaking the law there.
