Do Your Job or Quit

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, May 23, 2013 at 3:49 PM

Recently, a Portland server ranted here about customers who linger beyond closing time. Reminder: jobs are hard to find; if you don’t like yours, let someone else take a turn. Follow your muse to back to college, become really good at video poker, ask your parents for a loan, start a business, write a hit song. Whatever. Just stop your fucking whining. Bar/store/restaurant owners should also shoulder some blame. If more owners paid fair wages, offered better comp for extra hours, treated their employees with respect and mandated good customer relations then maybe, just maybe Portland wouldn't have such a bad service rep. Service is a serious profession and most locals know it. To the mopey, spoiled, self-obsessed minority of malcontents: please quit your jobs or find a way to spare us all from your shitty, shitty attitudes.
