Hi, I'm really just ranting here...I just don't get people..
I got this guy working for me right; he's a cook, just started like mid October. Has a girlfriend and a baby, really in need of work...BAD. So, I know his mother and she asked if I'd hire him and he seemed like a cool guy...so I hire him.
Last month he called in one day and said he could make more money doing "something else" and left a message saying he wasn't coming in....Warning #1...Yesterday he was 45 minutes late for work...he called to let me know, so I sort of let it go...Today, scheduled for 9am, he's not here at 9:15, not here at 9:30, so I call him...he says...Oh jeez, I was just going to call you, I hit the snooze...i'm leaving now...Haha...WTF? What am I the babysitter?
So, this is warning #2..and the last....however, I write him up, and he starts friggin' arguing with me...I said, Listen up...this is your last chance - don't argue with me, and start getting here on time. He shakes his head, signs the piece of paper and is being a ****ant...Whatever.
The problem is partially that I need him...he does a good job when he's here...but WTF? Seriously? I just want to tell him to go someplace else.
Thanks for listening...I can't stand this job most of the time, but am having trouble finding something else...oh well...
