Unprofessional people in professional roles

Postby Astrid » Sat Apr 09, 2016 6:45 am

I hate them. How do they keep their jobs and out of trouble with the boss? I too want to do a half assed job and not give a S*** but get treated like it's fine- but I could never bring myself to do it...because I am grown up and know how to be professional. Jeesh.

Bitchrant over :)

I had a supervisor at my last job who would constantly make inappropriate remarks about people's personal life, including digging for information about people's sex lives.
Everyone hated being stuck in a hot kitchen with him for 12 hours at a time.

I can try. Preface for anyone who hasn't worked in hospo, the staff all tend to sleep with each other, it's pretty common.

I was sleeping with one of the girls at work, and trying to keep it a secret because once the rumour mill starts, you become the unwilling recipient of endless jokes and harmless ..

The 2ic in this kitchen was an incompetant sleazy creep (30 year old married man who hit on all the 18 year old girls and made them feel uncomfortable), and nobody really got along with him. Sometimes I would do a 14 hour shift with him and he would constantly poke and pry for information as to why I would hang around after my shift to give everyone a lift home (it was usually after midnight and no public transport).
Eventually it came out that I was sleeping with this girl, and his questions changed to ask about the sex etc..
He also made dirty jokes about her or I in the middle of a busy rush, or of hand derogatory comments. He just wasn't pleasant to be around.

I wanted to punch him several times.

There are more stories but enough essay for today.
To be honest if he was a nice guy and people liked him his questions probably wouldn't annoy anyone. But he isn't and they do.
