I'm not the only one jumping for joy either... the entire kitchen is ready to be rid of him. After his latest stunt I had to talk to the owner just to keep him in the loop and he told me that if he was not going away for so long, he would have been sent packing on Saturday after his shift.
I know there will be some fallout from his latest stunt, but I don't care. He wanted to trade a shift with another guy and I didn't let him. I gave the other guy his shift and told him that the other guy had to work today and I would see him on Saturday. The KM and owner both know why I made the decision I did and frankly I did what was best for the kitchen and ultimately the restaurant.
So tomorrow when we say goodbye to him we'll be smiling... but not for the reasons he thinks we will be!
