1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Related to this, my boss sent out this nasty email to the company a few days ago... Apparently he got a few replies from people finger-pointing who the main culprit is ahahaha.

    Text decoration added to reflect original email


    haha, calling people 'stupid' in an email blast is a bold move.

    Wow! Must be nice to run a company that has all of its issues under control so you can focus on the kitchen.

    I can appreciate some rage at people leaving a kitchen/eating area filthy. Shit annoys me to no end.

    We just hire someone to clean our kitchen. Dishes are left next to the sink where someone will pick them up and take them upstairs to the kitchen with a dishwasher.

    Much easier to include it in a non-billable employee's regular duties (like on the mail round) than to have someone billing $400+ an hour take time to do dishes or make a fresh pot of coffee.

    haha. i notice a lot of people in the restrooms here will grab paper towels from the machine BEFORE washing their hands, like thanks... assholes. then there's the usual walking out without washing which I see just about every day.

    I usually grab a paper towel (without touching anything but the paper) to use it to turn the faucet handles. After a good soapy wash of 10-20 secs, I get more paper to dry my hands and pick up the wad of handle-grabbing paper. Toss into can. Then I get one more sheet to use on the door handle on the way out. Trash can in hallway. I couldn't care less if anyone thinks I'm weird. Let them get enteritis.

    What's worse though is the crazy guy on our floor who talks to himself in the bathrooms/stalls and narrates your every action in whispers as you're taking a leak. it's really fucking sick and awkward and i'm not sure what type of disorder he has but he needs help. he wears terry richardson uncle-rapist style glasses too so i know his craziness is probably compounded in some way. good thing there's another bathroom down the hall...

    Yeah. I once worked with a guy I called "Lurch" cuz every morning I said "good morning" and every morning he responded with a stupid growling noise. Thing was, every blessed time I went to the men's room, he'd either follow me down the hall, or he'd show up within a minute or two. The behavior stopped as soon as I said "WHAT TO FUCK'S YOUR PROBLEM? GET TO FUCK OUTTA HERE!"

    Seriously.

    There is a special rung in Hell reserved for people who microwave nasty shit (tuna, eggs, etc.) in the office kitchen, let it explode all up in the microwave, and don't clean up afterwards.

    At my old company there was a receptionist who did not shave her armpits, and there was a smell issue. Problem was: a nagging suspicion that it was "cultural." Talk about a hairy conversation for HR!

    I reported someone in another department to HR because he would NEVER wash his hands. Ever.

    Even number 2.

    I work with a woman who I've been told doesn't sit when she uses the toilet. She is about 300 lbs and eats a HUGE fried lunch EVERYDAY. Sometimes its fired chicken cutlet heros, sometimes its burgers (yes, plural), and sometimes its chinese, but its always with a big bag of potato chips and a DIET Coke. She has severe stomach issues that keep her out of work quite a bit, yet she continues her diet. But the disgusting part is the fact that she pisses and shits all over the seat in the ladies rooms and never cleans it. She appalls my wife and I'm glad I don't need to share facilities with her, as I already eat lunch away from her. But if she thinks that lowly of herself, imagine how she thinks about everyone else.

    One co-worker of mine eats leftover food from bus-tubs.

    Another scratches his balls every five minutes, sometimes in front customers (hands in pants).

    70% are high on cocaine. Many of my co-workers come to work drunk - orders are always being fucked up. The other day i had a ticket for a sub that needed lettuce and tomato, and this kitchen guy brings it up to the window without the toppings -

    Me: "dude we need lettuce and tomato on here."
    Kitchen guy: "What do you mean?"
    Me: The fucking vegetables.

    One co-worker of mine broke down crying the other day since she ran out of xanax bars; she was all good though once she met her dealer in the alley behind work - her "medicine kicks in instantly."

    Found my manager the other day smoking pot in the back of the building.

    Once witnessed two servers fucking in the wash room during close.

    Owner brings in all his friends, and they all get rude and shitfaced - seriously just because you're the owners friends doesn't mean you don't have to tip on a $650 tab.


    End of rant.

    My last job I had to quit because my manager got into the habit of calling me three or so times a week crying to me about her coke head unemployed boyfriend who went down on dudes to support his habit - and of course most of these calls were around 3 AM when he was on cocaine binges and trying to break into her apartment. I would always tell her to shut up or leave him, and she would never do either - "I work in retail; he is the best I can get."

    Job quit, number blocked.

    Job prior to that (retail), we had this S.A. who would sing along to Lady Gaga's Disco Stick song once the store was closed, and we were in the process of tidying up. This wasn't a one time thing; it was every day (with his headphones on, prancing around).


    I'm so tired of the retail, restaurant scene; I can not wait until I am cooped in a boring office.

    The poor toilet habits are really disgusting, especially when you're at a company where every colleague went through college, so you'd think they are actually civilised and not poo flinging monkeys.

    People not washing their hands, not flushing after taking a dump, not bothering lifting toilet seat up and peeing on it.

    Not flushing at the urinals is fine with me though, since they installed the whole environmentally friendly non-flush system with the blocks with the bacteria that eat your nasties away or something.

    There is one relgion in the world where exposing your naked bowels to water is considered to cause offense to the water gods!.

    At a previous place of employment there were a large number of these worshippers who would fill the toilet bowl with paper until all the water was covered before doing their business. As you can imagine this render the toilet unusable and blocks the plumbing. It got so bad that some co-workers started following other workers into the toilets ready to pounce on them and do the equivalent of a citizens arrest. HR had to get involved and it got 'messy'.

    These worshippers of the water gods were afterwards referred to as 'Dodos' - Birds that like to create a nest!

    Please let me know the name of your restaurant, so that I may not eat there.

    I'll usually arrange a layer of toilet paper in the bowl of public toilets to prevent the "splash effect" when evacuating ordure. I don't like the idea of public toilet water coming in contact with my body; who knows where it's been? I should mention I have mild to progressively moderate symptoms of OCD.
