Reminds me of places I've worked where it's really, really hard to get fired, yet some still manage to do it.My one child (sophomore in high school) works for a pretty well know national "upscale" food chain.
I heard my wife talking with my kid, and she (wife) was laughing hysterically, so I was curious as to what was so funny.
A coworker a while ago (teenager as well) apparently brought pot/weed into the restaurant, didn't want it on him, didn't know what to do with it, so he put in a oven. Low and behold, either the oven was on or someone turned it on with the pot/weed still in the oven, and you can guess what happened...
Apparently that was only good for a write up....
Little while later, same kid who threw the pot/weed in the oven got caught in the bathroom smoking his stash with other some other co workers in the bathroom. Same story, everyone written up, no one terminated.
Well, the third strike that finally got the two peat offender fired was he overcharged a customer $1.50 on their invoice.
Break the law twice where you could actually be arrested, no problem, keep your job. Make a simple mistake which anyone with a bad day could do, and that's the final straw?
Have to give my kid credit, already applying for other jobs to find something better.
Glad your kid sees the future at such a young age.
