Former employees......

On today’s episode of “As the Mug Turns”, we have crazy former employee stories. No names will be used to protect the not so innocent. Well, in all honesty I don’t remember some of the names! First up will be the call I received on a Saturday afternoon ten years ago about my crew for that night. I would have NO crew in the kitchen because one cook was in jail for stabbing another woman with a ...shower curtain rod. The other cook would not be in since she rode to work with the one in jail. Oh, did I fail to mention that the woman that was stabbed had worked for us for a few days a few weeks before this happened. Ok take a minute to let that sink in.
We have had an employee that kept setting fire to the bathroom. According to the police, we could not prove it. Well, the bathroom is not on fire and when she leaves the bathroom it is on fire. I am no detective but whatever. About the time this was happening in the early 1980’s, we got a bomb threat. It was Andouille Fest weekend and we assume someone wanted the night off. Nice. What your childhood memories don’t include bomb threats to the family business?
There are countless other stories. There was a woman that lasted 1 hour and 9 minutes on the job. Yes, we called her the 69 minute woman. She came back three months later for her money. This was 1993. I handed her $5 and walked away. Yes indeed!
Tomorrow on “As the Mug Turns”, I will bring you wacky customer stories. I will answer the burning question of just how many times I have had things thrown at me by customers!
