After I arrived home last night and while I was eating my dinner, I checked my e-mail only to find this from my friend who still barely works there:
“Guess what I heard today? Apparently L*** told J***** that you (and D**) were let go because they wanted someone that cared more about the food.
How’s that for a laugh?”
That’s right, the wife’s owner is telling the guy who replaced me that I (and the previous sous chef) were fired. Kind of weird because the sous chef was a no call/no show (as I previously wrote about) and I distinctly remember giving notice last Friday. Oh well.
But how’s this for karma? The guy brought in to replace me already has another job and from what I heard likely won’t last a full week,. And my friend may be gone in a week as well as he has something lined up.
As for me, things are looking up. Last night I ran the station almost entirely by myself (which is good because the hot line got murdered last night). The environment is a complete 180 from where I was working, which is exactly what I was looking for.
