On strike

tips welcome sign

The staff is on the verge of mutiny. The hours are insane, and the pay? That is non-existent. Forget a raise in minimum wage when there is no wage. It’s Work for Food around here.

There are too many bosses, and too many demands on limited time and resources. Key skills needed for this job include mind-reading, sonic speed, multi-tasking, NASCAR driving experience, and Top Chef cooking talent.

Forget getting any positive feedback on a job well done. It’s non-stop complaints about what wasn’t done, or not done right.

This one-woman crew is on strike.
