We have a couple of newbies in our kitchen and one did a classic eff up today... He was on the schedule to start at 9am today and well it was getting close to 10 when the KM asked the owner to give this guy a call and see if he was planning on turning up at all today. So.. owner calls the guy and the guy starts giving our owner attitude as "he was not on for today all week, why has it changed" and the owner handed the phone to the KM and he said.. um.. the schedule has not changed since it was printed and posted last week and you are almost an hour late... to which the guy answered... I have plans and I am not in. We were less than pleased being one man down on the weekend but come what may and we gotta do what we gotta do. A couple of hours later the new guy calls and I guess asked if we wanted him in.. the KM shook his head as we had gotten through the crunch and were kind of coasting smoothly. Someone is getting a warning tomorrow... and the KM and I were chatting about it and if they had not been full of attitude on phonecall #1 there would not be disciplinary action involved. Yeah the call to come in kind of redeemed them but wouldn't it have been prudent for them to admit the mistake and say they'll be in asap??? ACK!
