Explosive Misanthropy Posted January 9, 2008 Share Posted January 9, 2008 Okay...so I have a slight problem at work....Half the the people I work with think I am illiterate or just plain ole stupid....(I work in a retirement home, in the kitchen...well...as a cook.) Example:I am working and the sandwich of the day was hotdog with sourkrout. Well, I put the hotdogs into a steamer in order to cook them, as I have been shown by many other cooks there. Now... I have to send food upstairs to assisted living, and they have to be up there by 1:00, so I a little pressed for time when I have no help...which is usually everyday.Now, what I did was used the steamed hotdogs for the regular hotdog orders for upstairs....which is what I was shown by other cooks... including the head chef there.Now, this lady, her name is Kettie, if that is of any importance. She's this selfish Haitian lady, and she's mean sometimes.Anyway, she pulls aside another cook, and tells him something about the hotdogs. then Greg is like (the cook) "you were supposed to grill these" I was like, "What? you want me to re-cook 8 hotdogs?""no, just next time grill them""okay, but I was just doing what I was shown, and told."and the guy goes away, then Kettie, comes up to me and holds out this paper and is like, "This says hotdog..."I look at her like, "duh..." then she says it again... and again....and again... and I think one more time for good measures.I am pretty pissed off my by now, and I start yelling at her, "I cant flockING Read! I am so sick and flocking tired of you people thinking I am stupid!" That is one problem I had a few days ago.... Today, I was making eggs....with toast...and bacon, and you know how I knew all this? the ticket. The server saw me putting it on the plate and was like, "dont forget the toast....oh and that has bacon""um....I can read that...." I didnt yell at her....but i wanted to.... Another time I was making some grilled cheese, and it had some ham on it, and 3 people came back and asked if I had made it yet....I said, "what the hell? I am not as stupid as you guys think I am..... I know that I was supposed to make it...." I dont understand, whose more stupid, me or the people I work with??
