A windy GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, windy. I hate wind. I know about the green energy and stuff. Still, it doesn’t stop me from hating it.
What Would You Do Wednesday Ed-vise today. Cause I love WEDNESDAY!!!
Well, it happened…again.
A group of testosterone overdosed ‘Mericans went into a restaurant last weekend and went off on the workers who were trying to enforce house rules. That is to wear a mask when walking around the restaurant.
One of the servers trying to do the right thing was a 16 year old kid. An adult male going off on a 16 year old kid.
I tip my hat to the manager for stepping in. For realizing a problem was happening and attempting to intervene and remove the group (yes, more than one) from the restaurant without calling in the police.
The behavior of adults during this time has become over the top. Yesterday I wrote about where one person’s civil rights stop and another’s starts. It is the same thing for business. When does a private business get to run their operation the way they want to?
It’s House Rules. House Rules refer to how a business expects their patrons to behave within the walls of their establishment. Much like in Casino when the cowboy was sitting at the poker table with his feet on the table. Casino manager asked him to take them down. Cowboy said “go fuck yourself.” Security then used the cowboy’s head to open the door and threw him out. House Rules: don’t put your feet on the table.
So, What Would You Do in this situation. Put yourself in the shoes of a surrounding table or a manager or the young hostess. The customer is NOT always right.
Managers: support your people. Let them know you have their back when it comes to company policies being enforced. Be ready to stand between them and an angry patron ESPECIALLY with the volatile climate that we have now.
Bystanders: don’t be afraid to become the focus of an idiots anger. Remind them of House Rules. You adding your support behind the hostess and behind the manager will tip the scales of power and get a person to stand down.
People are assholes because they’re allowed to be.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember monsters like their eggs TERRI-FRIED! HAHAHAHAHHAA…that’s good!
