So, I made someone quit this week at work.
Ok I really didn't, but it seemed like I did.
Here's the story. Our restaurant does triple nickel wings every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3-5 (wings for 15 cents each if you couldn't figure that out). I usually come in at 3 and it gets pretty chaotic. Usually a bunch of cheap high school kids come in and rip all of their servers off (this is a different topic I will someday talk about), but we produce a plethora of wings in those 2 hours. Well a whole bunch of wings came up in the window, and the cook gave me two tickets so I could sell them. I called the servers and sent them out with their wings. There were two remaining bowls of wings in the window, and another cook came over to see why they were there because he was going to start helping with the rest of the orders. The first cook told him they were supposed to go out with the orders I just sent, but I told him they weren't. I sent out everything I was supposed to. Well this other cook got really annoyed (he has temper issues in the first place and he has taken them out on me verbally many a time, but that's just him and i just ignore it) and started yelling at the other cook for messing up (ok this wasn't a big deal because you just use those wings for another order, right?) well he got mad at me and said why didn't you send these out and I said because I didn't need them, and it's not a big deal. He used many profane words and went into the back. I thought he was just going back there to cool down because he does that a lot, but then my manager comes out and said what did you do? I didn't really know what he was talking about and then he told me that the temperamental cook just came back there and said i can't take this shiz, I quit. Uh....yeah. Well I didn't really make him quit, but everyone was really confused as to what happened. It wasn't a big deal because obviously the other cook and me had nothing to do with it, but he was one of our best line cooks.
haha oops.

(it does make me kinda sad he quit because he was one of my favorites to work with...and to look at ;-) but what can you do)
