Ok Guys time for another one of my rants
I Have Been working in a canteen for over a year now. Its my first job. Over the past year I have become quite good at my job.
In the past 5 with the Main chef I work with (chimmy) Has been away on holiday.
Now I have had trouble with him in the past. He is the type of person who would rather Sit down and watch TV
then help someone out.
While he was away Our Shift increased by 50% which means a lot more customers to serve.
He Came back to work and I warned him about the increase ad that we was now serving more people, and there will be more washing up so he would have to help me if he wanted to go on time.
On time is not good enough for him, he must leave early every night and why? Because he is lazy.
So He is back, normal work starts, Im doing jobs that he does not like me doing because the more time I spend doing serving and food the less time I have to SCRUB stuff he has burnt onto trays from his cooking. So Friday I was making a pudding for someone because he was not around, he appears, pushes
me out of the way and told me to wash up... Ok, My job is customer service just as much as his and if he is not around I don't just leave them do I?
Because he is not prepared with his food he falls behind... I told him that we needed more chips. He ignored this, we get a queue of 5 people, He is desperately try to cook the chips fast, brings them out of the fryer and said they was ready. Now im sorry as much as he is the chef and stuff these chips were NOT
cooked. They were still a very pale color with oil dripping off them. I said to him they were not done, He gave me the dirty look shuved me out of the way and served them anyway. A customer later told me that the chips tasted horrible and they were frozen in the middle.
The past few nights he fails to see that I have more people to deal with than he has and I cant do it all on my own. Still he spends most of the night sitting down and leaving me to wash up all his cooking stuff, plates, the lot.
You ask, Why don't I go to my manager? Oh I have plenty of times! He thinks Chimmy is a great hard worker and the shift is fine and im just being lazy myself.. yea ok..
I don't get paid for overtime (which I am supposed to) so I choose not to stay a second longer to finish the job when I get no help or anything.
Tonight He crossed the Line, He started screaming at me for "serving wrong" all I did was give someone 2 burgers? If he had even bothered to tell me the portions tonight I would have known. so I gave the plate to him and told him to serve instead (I only served because he was sitting down). And walked away, He followed me screaming that he is in charge blah blah swinging his arms all over the plane and missed smacking me in the face by inches.
Im am Shaking with rage. So I walked into the Office, Took a Pen and Paper and gave in my 2 weeks notice.
He has not even been back a week and there is problem after problem. And quite frankly I have had enough.
Now I may have another Job sorted in administration but im still a bit worried about giving 2 Weeks notice without any over confirmed jobs...
Did I do the right thing?
