what part of “hi, how are you?” and “may i please have a sandwich? here, i have some money” warrants a fucking attitude from every fucking employee at every fucking cosi i’ve ever been to?
i’ve taken the liberty of editing their hourly employee application — let me know if i missed anything:
this dude is my hero. viva railing against laptop-induced bad posture!
explain this to me. i was owed two paychecks + pay for 3 vacation days. i estimated my hourly rate after taxes, and figured out roughly how much i should have gotten. the total amount i was paid was equal to the two paychecks after taxes. so, because my first paycheck was held until now and i was paid more in a lump sum, i’m taxed significantly more?
son of a bitch. i would have called out for the last three days. HR dude said “well, at least you’ll get it back as a refund,” which will hopefully be true, but what a bummer.
i feel like i’m getting these from all sides lately. i know when you’re a client, you feel like the money you pay allows you to throw orders around like you’re running an army. i know when you have a super familiar relationship with someone, it can be easy to fall into telling someone to do something, rather than asking them to do it. i know that bosses are appropriately titled, because it’s their job to boss you around.
but world, take note*: a little motherfucking “please” and “thank you” never hurt anyone.
