My recent post about waiting tables has been one of my most-read posts ever here on my blog. I thought you all might be interested to know how it turned out. Did I go back? Did I call and tell them off? Did they call and rudely fire me? Did we all pretend it never happened? Was I paid all my back tips and given a profuse apology?
What happened was much less dramatic and passive aggressive.
After no communication all week, the very day of my next shift, I got a text from my manager, the co-owner, the boss's wife. It was simple.
"Thanks for giving your two weeks notice. However, we've worked it out so you don't have to come in. I'll let you know when your paycheck is ready."
