This is on behalf of my niece, Nicki, who works in a restaurant. Yesterday was the birthday of one of the day managers. As everyone likes him, they all chipped in and bought him a cake, cards and small gifts. (He is a nice guy.) "Rex" wanted to wait till after the lunch rush to slice his cake and share it with everyone, as the day and evening shifts overlap about that time. No one would feel slighted if he cut it then.
"Lucy", a lower manager, under Rex, grew tired of waiting. She went in the back, and proceeded to cut herself a nice chunk of cake, and eat it in front of two servers, one of whom promptly told Rex he needed to check his cake out.
Rex was crushed! When he questioned Lucy about it, she claimed it was one of the two servers who saw her do it! Kierra was very upset, and told Lucy she didn't appreciate being called a thief. Of course, Lucy tried to laugh it off.
Rex left, (it was the end of his shift, and he was waiting a little longer to share his cake), and took his cake home with him. No one, other than Lucy, got a slice.
Perhaps Rex overreacted, but I am so shocked at Lucy's behavior. Talk about uncouth! Makes me wonder what is missing from her life.
