Today I was let off. My employment was an odd situation that I've posted about heavily in various places about my strange disfunctional kitchen. Frankly I'm not all that surprised. I tried as hard as I could to get it on its' feet but my boss's heart just wasn't into it.
What I'm wondering is:
Today I was flat out told my boss is hanging it up.
As a little history, over time I'd somehow become the toe in the door for her SIL to try to get rid of the breakfast half of the restaurant . He never wanted it, it's always been very clear. There's ton of backstabbing tongue wagging about my cooking which I am NOT HAPPY ABOUT as an excuse to close the AM shift. Let me be perfectly clear, the kitchen is a horror. It's dirty, I've made suggestions, complained, I have to make eggs in scratched pans over grills meant for meat. oil drips off of the vents, there is oily, clingy soot on the bottom of all the pans, uneven heating, no place to make any decent hash browns, making pancakes on a little electric grill that fits 2...plus I'm the only B-fast cook. I personally think I've done pretty well considering and brought it to much better than when I came in a month ago.
However, apparently they have some serious family business issues (SIL and MIL in a business venture...not pretty) and he, the primary leasee of the building, has chosen me as the excuse to shut her down.
She's tired of the continuous arguments and in the interest of her family has backed down. (They were ready to just pack off back to England a couple of days ago)
In any event, I've never really run into getting laid off. I'm scratching my head about unemployment until I can find a decent place (is there one?) but the main thing is don't they have to give me more than a "don't come in any more"?
Any ideas...? I'm in Nevada.
