I posted a while back about the foh supervisor being a problem for me and well here we go again. The KM had dealt with her the last time and things were better for a while but she has slipped back into her old ways.
We have to cut hours.. fine we did that so that means more is on us who are on the line. No big deal. It also means that I have no time at all for the office part of my job as I am needed on the line and for me the line is more important and the office can wait. I get the office stuff done in good time but sometimes I have to wait to talk to the KM before I can post stuff.
So I did the schedule for next week and I found some places where we can cut hours but I need to run it by the KM before I am willing to post it. I did print off a copy that is in my notebook and on it I have penned in where I want to cut and what he and I need to talk about. No big deal.
Today I had to do fruits so I knew I had alot ahead of me but with the shift cuts the hot side got slammed and I had to step over and help which landed me promptly into the jungle when it came to my fruit cup prep. That also meant that I had no time at all to talk to the owner about the BOH schedule and let him know of what I was planning to suggest to the KM. Again, no big deal.
I know the FOH person knew how busy I was.. how could she not? There were two people on the hot side, me on fruits and one on weekend prep who was called to the hot side more than once to help out.
What she did though is something that I am going to address in a meeting tomorrow with her, the KM and the owner. I am not sure if it was the owner or her who made the decision but the two of them went over the BOH schedule without me. So the owner comes to me in a fit and asks me why I have all these cooks in at 7am on a Saturday so I reached for my notebook and showed it to him and told him that what I have noted is there for me to talk to the KM about. He was Ok after that.
I'm not angry at all.. in fact I find it kind of funny that she goes so far out of her way to prove how superior she is.
This leaves me wondering.. does she feel that I am a threat to her success?? For crying out loud I am a chef she is a blasted sever/host/pass person but the owner bows to her word.
Tomorrow I will warn the KM as I know the owner will be on his rear end and well I want a meeting at end of day tomorrow to address this rat crap.
Thanks for letting me ramble
